February 3-- CHINESE NEW YEAR 4707-- Mercury moves into Aquarius (zany communications) as Venus becomes more disciplined as She enters Capricorn.

Astro Thoughts by Silverdisc-- The ESP lab may see some new opportunities on the horizon that will increase and expand The Lab’s communication into new areas starting this month. We have a powerful astrological combination to work in February. Incredible deep transformation is on the horizon combined with a unique opportunity to call upon the Mother Goddess to assist throughout this year. The Goddess begins to gain strength in February with a conjunction between the Sun (ego, Spirit purpose), Ceres (Mother Goddess), Mars (action, passion, movement), Mercury is moving in to accompany the goddess as we awaken to Her presence. Call upon Her-- She will gladly help us in our daily lives. We have an astrological healing signature that is available to us over the next few months – don’t hesitate to tap into to this energy while you are calling upon the Blue Light.

Astro Thoughts by Silverdisc-- We start out this new year with great movement forward. It is very important to focus on positive thoughts. Keep that gratitude journal handy. Luck and Opportunity could spark a surprise phone call or message of new opportunities with potential increase of income or wealth. Remember Luck happens when opportunity meets preparedness. The Transiting Sun and Mars are also in a very powerful placement in the ESP chart this month….. increase and transform your own vital energy by tapping into this surge of exciting power. When connecting to the ESP Lab Spirits this month you may find any barriers or old and outworn ways are transformed into new ideas and new energies with deeper connections. Allow this old energy to be released and embrace new stronger ways of evoking Al’s Merry Spirit Band.

NEW MOON in SAG 9:36 am December 5th-- Set your goals and wishes for the new year in motion and leave behind the past you would be free from!
Mercury Is Retrograde: from December 10th to December 30th! At least we have the last day of the year for clear thinking and forward motion. During the Mercury Retro influence the mind becomes confused and communication breaks down. In the words of the Immortal Al Manning, "It s till appears-- from earth-- that the planets do occasionally move backwards in their orbits and that's what we call a retrograde condition. Retrograde Mercury is the toughest to handle . It tears hell out of communication in general and presents a bad time to start new projects. But it's a good time for cleaning out your closets and finishing off old or stalled projects." Use plenty of oRAnge light to chase away the confusion and stay steadily positive as you play and plod through this time.
Winter Solstice/Full MOON/Lunar Eclipse-- December 21st-- the Moon is full very early 0:13 am with a Lunar Eclipse, then moves into Cancer at 1:22 am. The Sun enters Capricorn 3:39 pm which is the moment of Winter Solstice… Huzzah, the LIGHT RETURNS. Let us have a joyous holiday! Celebrate the Sun's new life cycle as it moves towards greater and greater light. Watch out for the Moon opposed by Mars and the Moon opposed by Pluto-- which all together with the FULL MOON Lunar Eclipse could add some intense, fearful and confused explosive emotionalism. So channel LIGHT on this High Holy Day! Start the new Solar year right!
Astro News by Tamira Silverdisc, ESP Lab Astrologer. Even though Mercury will not be up to speed moving into the New Year – he is moving forward. It will be a good idea to purchase any Holiday/Christmas gifts related to computer equipment / lap tops / video games /electronics etc. before the 10th. We have our last Lunar Eclipse of the year on the 21st exactly the day of our Winter Solstice. Before you begin anything on this wondrous magical day-- take a moment to center and ground yourself. Then send your loving, peaceful and harmonious ‘Energy’ out from the core of your being. On this powerful Winter Solstice the ESP Lab’s chart carries a very Profound Energetic Truth that wishes to express itself. This ‘truth’ is best expressed or directed to and from the Heart and Soul, so open your heart and soul…. And connect with your ESP Lab. This year truly ends on a high note as all of the planets are direct – wow that is good news going into 2011.

November 2010 (Scroll down for October 2010)

KEYS: For Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)
The Scorpion, The Eagle and The Phoenix"I generate; I create!
For Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
The Centaur, the Archer "I see; I perceive."
Charting the planets: Our month starts with Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune Retrograde. Of greater concern is VENUS IS RETROGRADE to November 19th.
Watch Mars squares and oppositions-- 1, 15, 22, 29 (2)
temper tantrums, fist fights, battles, accidents, road rage
Watch Saturn squares & oppositions-- 10, 17, 24
the feeling of depression: that life is just hard.
Venus squares & oppositions-- 11, 18, 25
heart ache & heart break with domestic challenges.
Tune into how the aspects affect you personally… & avoid heart ache, depression and angry moments. Flip the negative to push the positive. For important meetings or dates, check these for timing. Note the pattern this month of the Saturn square followed by the Venus square on 10/11, 17/18 and 24/25. Be centered within your spirit-- transmute & transcend!
November 1-- All Saints Day-- for some of us the beginning of a new year-- starts out with a Moon square Mars… lots of energy available if you can re-program the anger.
November 5th-- NEW MOON in Scorpio-- Moon in Scorpio can make one feel moody, intense, and suspicious. Deep merging with another possible. Fertile water sign time for good magick.
Venus Is Retrograde: OCTOBER 8th to NOVEMBER 19th-- Good news is that it missed my birthday & and will miss Thanksgiving holidays. Take your B vitamins to help manage the stress and put on your whole armor of God. Al Manning gave us some comments about Venus Retrograde-- "Retrograde Venus is a real challenge to one's value system. It only happens about once in 18 months. Happily it doesn't coincide with Retrograde Mercury times (in this year 2010) 'cause that feels flat out disastrous. By staying carefully and deliberately positive we can handle it all and go forward together. Let's do it!" Take Al's advice from 2006 and push it forward into now. During the Venus Retro the tendency is for all of your cherished values to get turned upside down… meaning everyone tends to be dissatisfied with everything for six weeks. This is NOT a time to change friends, jobs, or locations. Use caution and be centered in Spirit and you will get through it! Avoid social events and keep your extra curricular activities to a minimum. It is over in 6 weeks! Remember Al would say." It is raining on both sides of the scrimmage line" and be forewarned.
November 21 FULL MOON Void of Course in Taurus-- at 9:27 am. Moon moves into Gemini at 10:46 am. Celebrate the fullness of the Mother as she gives birth to the child of our thoughts. Make a positive wish!
November 22nd-- Sun enters Sagittarius-- Lots of fiery energy today as the Moon opposes Mars and the Sun moves into Sag.
November 23rd Moon moves from Gemini to Cancer-- Would have been my earth father's 86th birthday. Happy Birthday to Sri Satya Sai Narayana Baba-- the Hindu master and avatar. Aum Sai Ram
November 29th-- Watch the double Mars squares this day as you have two chances to really lose your temper. Mars square Jupiter can bring an argument over finances.
All in all-- a better month once we get through the Venus Retro for another 18 months. Do remember Edgar Cayce is quoted, "Astrology is subservient to the will of man."
Astro News by Tamira AKA Silverdisc, ESP Lab Astrologer
A promising month ahead as Neptune turns direct on November 7th and yes finally – Venus and Jupiter both turn direct on November 18th – are you ready to move forward, I know I am! A welcome boost of energy will spur on movement toward those revised goals you have been working on since Hallows Eve. Let's use this opportunity to tap into the ESP Lab’s Luck and Prosperity Energy – especially after Jupiter moves direct on the 19th. Think of your favorite Al Manning Money spell…or one of his Talismans for Good Fortune like the Jupiter pentacle on page 141 of ‘Helping Yourself with White Witchcraft’. Make sure you take extra care when wording your spell, be direct and specific be passionate and confident about wishes and desires. Don’t forget to ask for a little extra that you can pass on to help your neighborhood, or a special cause. Do this all with Love, Light and Gratitude…. Unexpected, Yes, Grand results are sure to follow. The ESP Lab is getting ready to take a great stride forward ending the year with very positive note, more on that in December’s newsletter.

October 22nd FULL MOON-- at 6:37 pm and void of course 'til 7:29 pm when it moves into Taurus. In the old days this was the true Halloween. With Mars squaring Neptune and a Saturn opposition the night before and Mercury then Venus opposing the moon-- we have a more challenged time. This whole cycle is served by maintaining a SPIRIT FILLED mind and heart. Use the Power of the Fullness of the Moon to get into a great mood anyway and celebrate the holiday now & the 31st.
Astro News by Tamira, Lab Astrologer
This year's Hallows' Eve in particular will provide a great venue to advance your knowledge about anchoring the Soul and Spirit even deeper into this life and physical body. On this powerful day as extra energy pours into this world from the other side and the veil thins we will find ourselves open to even greater depth and clarity. We are provided opportunities to heal and deepen relationships with those that have passed on, along with help from guides, angels and helpful beings. Make sure to schedule some alone time – to 'Work Your Magic'. This is a great time to clean up your sacred magical space and perhaps add a few new things for a fresh start such as fresh flowers and a pink candle for love. Don't forget you attract and magnetize 'like' energy – so this is a great time to make a list of your goals and don’t forget to include some personal improvements. This year your personal sacred space will have even more energy than previous years and be a conduit to communicate to the other side– take advantage. If you plan on socializing this Hallows-Eve, you may meet some important new contacts, meet up with old cherished friends, or find new opportunities. All in All-- Time to set your new year in motion. Make an extra effort for clarity as Venus is Retro.

As Al said about the aspect: "it tears hell out of communication in general and presents a bad time to start new projects. But it's a good time for cleaning out your closets and finishing off old or stalled projects." Strive for patience in communication and relations.

Mercury goes direct Sept. 12th… Plod through it!!

Astro News for September by Tamira, Lab Astrologer
The ESP Lab receives a boost of stable, disciplined energy as it finds its way through the winding and somewhat unconventional path to enlightenment. The Lab will receive extra light and energy directly from the highest level of its Spirit. The understanding we gain as a group during this time will be of utmost importance for the future of the ESP Lab's growth and stability as a Church/congregation of like minded people. Communication continues to evolve as the ESP Lab membership "tunes" into these wonderful new communication venues available to us such as the monthly tele-conference which enables ESP Lab community to come together.

August 2010 (Scroll down for July 2010)

KEYS: For Leo (July 22nd to August 22nd)
The Lion of the Sun-- "I AM, I Radiate!"
For Virgo (August 22nd to September 22nd)
The Virgin carrying wheat " I analyze, I teach"
Charting the planets: Month starts with Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto all Retrograde.
Mercury goes Retrograde August 20th
MAGICK is easier before the 20th…
Watch Mars squares and oppositions 6, 20, 28
(temper tantrums, wars, accidents, road rage, fist fights)
Watch Saturn squares & oppositions 6, 19, 21, 27
(the feeling of depression: that life is too hard)
Venus squares & oppositions 6, 7, 9, 20, 28
(heart ache & heart break with domestic challenges)
Each one of us experiences these aspects differently… folks with lots of fire in their charts may be more volatile during a Mars opposition while water signs may have a cooler calmer response. Tune into how the aspects affect you personally. Use this to chart your month and avoid heart ache, depression and angry moments through awareness. Flip the negative to push the positive. If you have an important meeting or date, check these for timing. Do note days like the 6th where you have multiple squares compounding the effects. Channel LIGHT ENERGY and win anyway! Sami
As we start our month: Get in gear early to accomplish as much as possible for the first part of the month before Mercury goes Retrograde. Then prune unnecessary tasks & challenges and coast (as much as possible) through the month's end.
August 1-- Moon is in Aries-- as we move into the last quarter of the Moon cycle. Let's work at finishing up things to prepare for the new cycle. A time of enthusiasm and good energy.
NEW MOON-- in Leo August 9th at 8:08 pm-- When the Moon is in Leo everyone wants to be the center of attention. We want romance, love, affection, and recognition. Start your new moon cycle as a LOVER of LIFE. There can be challenges with Venus opposed by Jupiter (but Dad, I love him@!) and Venus square Pluto (an emotional outburst related to love and domestic issues). Focus on the bright side & give & receive love anyway! Set the 28 day cycle in motion in positive way!
August 20th-- Mercury turns Retrograde at 12:59 pm
Mercury is the planet that rules the mind. When it turns Retro the mind tends to become confused and communication is challenged. Use the first part of the month to get things done and then switch into plod through it mode. Strive for patience in communication and relations. Use the ORANGE LIGHT of illumination to promote mental clarity. Turn to your inner spiritual being which is beyond astrology… make the connection and maintain it. Mercury goes direct September 12th.
Mercury Retro is not a good time for travel, signing deals, making new friends, starting new projects. It is a good time for planning, working on stalled projects, cleaning out closets, and persevering. Plod through it!!!
August 22-- Moon in Aquarius-- SUN MOVES INTO VIRGO-- Joke is that you can always get along with a Virgo as long as you do everything their way. Virgo is the sign of the teacher as folks get ready for fall harvest. Virgo, a practical earth sign, signals a time to work and be of service to others.
August 23-- Moon Trine Mars; Moon Trine Venus-- a harmony between the emotions and ones sense of desire and love.
FULL MOON--in Pisces at 10:05 am on August 24-- Full moons are the peak of the 28 day lunar cycle that affect our emotions and feelings. We experience a culmination of our thoughts, words and actions since the beginning of the cycle on the new moon. Moon in Pisces can make folks sensitive and feeling vulnerable. Joke is that during this time you can walk a mile to get your feelings hurt. With Mercury Retro confusion can add to the challenge. Trancend all of this with SPIRIT POWER… feel the light and the love-- the POWER of MAMA ISIS as She grants wishes on this day.
All in All-- As Al would say, "It is raining on both sides of the scrimmage line." Meaning we are all subject to the cozmic weather, and the good news is that we brought an umbrella and raincoat as forewarned is forearmed. By this time many of us have a method for getting through the Mercury Retro challenge… and whatever else the Universe may through our way! So let's access the Power of Spirit through our Power Star & through our ESP LAB and through direct experience as Divine Creative Beings… let's be LIGHT, and win!

July 2010 (Scroll down for June 2010)

KEYS: For Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd)
The Crab of the deep blue Ocean-- "I feel; I intuit"
For Leo (July 22nd to August 22nd)
The Lion of the Sun-- "I AM, I Radiate!"
Best Days for Positive Magicks: All systems go month--
only Neptune and Pluto are Retro! 2, 11, 19, 22, 26,
Watch Mars squares and oppositions: 1, 9, 22, 30
(temper tantrums, wars, accidents, road rage, fist fights)
Watch Saturn squares & oppositions: 3, 10, 23, 30
(the feeling of depression: that life is too hard)
Venus squares & oppositions: 7, 8, 21, 29
(heart ache & heart break with domestic challenges)
Note that each one of us experience these aspects in our own way… folks with lots of fire in their charts may be more volatile during a Mars opposition while water signs may have a cooler calmer response. Tune into how the aspects affect you personally. Use this to chart your month and avoid heart ache, depression and angry moments through awareness. Flip the negative to push the positive. If you have an important meeting or date, check these for timing. Sami
As we start our month:
July 1-- Waning Moon in Pisces-- Pisces is the most yin and sensitive sign. When the Moon is in Pisces folks may walk a mile to get their feelings hurt. Don't let it happen to you. With the Moon opposing Mars that evening-- upset feelings can turn to rage and aggression. Lots of energy available with lots of sensitivity if you can focus in a positive direction.
July 4-- Moon in Aries-- Aries is a fiery sign which is good for firecrackers and fun. Be careful. The Saturn square and Pluto square from July 3 offer emotional challenges. Moon square Mercury (July 5) makes minds restless and excitable. Tune into the FREEDOM rey and have a great time anyway!!
NEW MOON-- in Cancer 3:11 am on July 11-- New moons are always the time to set in motion your new plan of action for the ensuing 28 day lunar cycle. To do so is in harmony with the energy of the cosmos. Let go of the past; create your new beginning. Cancer moons when increasing are most fertile times for planting your seeds in the garden of your life. Plant your seeds with LOVE. There is a LUNAR ECLIPSE at 12:40 pm. Save your magick work for after as eclipses challenge our primal and emotional selves.
July 22-- Moon in Aries-- SUN MOVES INTO LEO-- This is our group magick day, so it is becoming a special time. The day is mixed with the friendliness of Sag but challenged with a Venus square the night before and Mars square that evening. Celebrate your magickal transcendent self and celebrate the power of our magnificent SUN as expressed by LEO the heart and center of our solar system.
FULL MOON--in Aquarius at 6:37 pm on July 25-- Full moons are the peak of the lunar cycle, a time when the Mother Moon gives birth to the child of the thoughts of the previous 14 days. Harvest the good energy. Aquarian moons do encourage freedom seeking and unique personal expressions. Al would say it brings the nuts out!
Watch out on July 30 (and a day on either side)-- as we have some challenging aspects-- Mars opposing Uranus, Moon opposing Mars, Moon opposed by Saturn, Moon square Pluto, while the Moon is in Aries-- a fire sign. This will tend to be a day of explosive emotionalism, depression, fights, violence, rage, and conflict. This is heightened by Moon opposing Venus from the night before while in the sensitive sign of Pisces-- hurt feelings related to love and domestic issues. This is a day to find and stay in your spiritual center. Affirm, pray, love, be centered in GRACE and avoid situations that offer conflict. Blessed be! This is a great month with plenty of opportunity. Let's win!
From Tamira ESP Lab Astrologer: The ESP Lab chart shows strength and solidification of its presence as a facilitator to bring like minds together. This is coupled with the ability to support its membership's needs. With this comes the responsibility of the membership and founders to fulfill their part within this relationship. It is important that each member is aware of his or her actions and intentions. Luckily the ESP Lab membership is one that understands the direct consequences of these things, allowing everyone involved to maintain the required level of integrity. Communication continues to grow this month.

June 1-- Moon is in Aquarius: And the Moon trines the Sun. Peace will guide the planets love will steer the stars. At least I hope so! Let's start our month with hope!
June 3-- Moon moves into Pisces: Folks will tend to be sensitive and can get their feelings hurt. Watch out as the Moon (Emotions) is opposed by Mars (Energy). So avoid conflict and hurt emotions.
June 4-- Moon is still in Pisces while Mars is opposed by Neptune-- adding conflict between Mars (aggression) and Neptune (intuition and the subconscious). This is a double whammy aspect so use LIGHT to make it right!
NEW MOON-- June 12 in Gemini at 4:15 am moving into Cancer at 6:50 pm… Makes evening New Moon in Cancer fertile time to plant magickal seed thoughts!!

Moon trines Jupiter which offers Good Fortune!

June 21st-- Summer Solstice as the Sun enters Cancer at 4:30 am: Sun then moves into Scorpio which will intensify the day. Use energy to grow spiritually. Celebrate: dance in the Sun!
From our Minister, Linda Savage, PhD: On June 21st we’ll be celebrating one of the most universally honored times of the year, known as Midsummer in many cultures. The Summer Solstice, meaning “sun stands still” is the day the sun reaches its highest position in the sky.

It is at its maximum power so daylight lasts longer and we have more time to soak in the radiant warmth and enjoy the out-of-doors. The beginning of summer also represents a time to release the past and find renewed energy. Wiccan traditions light a gold candle in honor of the sun god. You might want to create your own ritual to enhance your health, joy, blessings, fun, and abundance. Above all, affirm your love for all life. Linda Savage, Ph.D. can be reached at lindasavagephd@goddesstherapy.com .
FULL MOON-- June 26 in Capricorn at 4:30 am-- Mercury is square Jupiter so be careful of your communications. Full Moon is always a time to celebrate the Mother's gifts to Her children. The LUNAR ECLIPSE at the moment of the fullness will challenge our comfort zones. Spirit power transcends.
From Tamira ESP Lab Astrologer: Saturn begins to move direct and picks up speed in the first weeks of June. Saturn is moving into a very important area for the Lab. As identification is stabilized and views and philosophies are further developed, the ESP Lab will need to utilize its power of group and goal focus. A 'Boost of Energy' hits the Lab's communication center …. which will be just what is needed as the communication kinks get worked out. This will facilitate a ground breaking event (or air time) within the ESP Lab membership. The Lab Membership will continue to find new ways to keep in touch and up to date with the latest, not forgetting all of the Lab's wonderful healing work. Enjoy the warmth and wonder of the Summer Solstice by taking time out to connect with nature. Walk to the park or anywhere you can get a little glimpse of trees & flowers, bees & birds or any wildlife you may have in your area. This is a great time to reconnect! The Goddess in the form of the Mother is about to make Her transformation from the chrysalis into an incredible butterfly within the ESP Lab chart.

MERCURY is still RETROGRADE-- (since April 17th) - so continue with "plod through it, get through it mode." Say less, strive for mental clarity & patience in communications-- & allow extra time for travel. Avoid electronic purchases, and signing contracts. Mercury Retro is not a good time for major changes. Access the RA-diant ORANGE LIGHT OF ILLUMINATION to assist with Mental clarity. Strive to access and stay within your spiritual center! With the mind on vacation, intuition can be high! Mercury is direct May 11th 3:27 pm! MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE AGAIN IN 2010: AUGUST 20TH TO SEPTEMBER 12TH & DECEMBER 10TH THRU 30TH!
MARVELOUS MAY DAY-- May 1-- Beltane marks the half way mark between Spring and Summer! It is a cross quarter day and a Solar High Holy Day. The Moon is in the friendly sign of Sagittarius. A great time for a party if Mercury was direct! With the Moon square Jupiter folks can be extravagant and financially foolish. It is the third day after the full Moon, so the energy is quite high for this Magickal Day, one of the 8 spokes of the Great Magick Wheel. Thus begins the Month of the Magician! Enjoy the festivities with caution.
New MOON on May 13th in Taurus at 6:04 pm-- Channel the strong Mars energy into a positive direction and avoid accidents and rage. Your lunar cycle begins.
May 20th -- Sun Enters Gemini at 8:34 pm-- Happy Birthday to all our GEMINI Lab members… be blessed with FUN LOVE JOY BIG MONEY TOO! Let it flow to you!
May 26th-- the Moon is in Scorpio the day before She "flips over." Use the fertility of this water sign and power of the Moon to launch your good wishes and power thoughts. Watch for the Moon square Mars-- channel the intense Martian energy constructively.
FULL MOON on May 27th in Sag at 4:07 pm-- Folks are friendlier as the Moon leaves the intensity of Scorpio for Sag. Moon trine Jupiter gives financial opportunity. Every full moon is opportunity for MAGICK! Choose thoughts wisely.
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND-- 29TH, 30TH , 31ST -- Moon is in Capricorn for most of the weekend which can make folks pessimistic and sluggish but we’re still riding the full moon energy which will boost the energy. The Saturn opposition on the 29th (depression) with the Moon opposing Venus the next day (heart ache) will make for a challenged weekend. Saturn goes direct. Use plenty of light with reason and love and make it through the challenges of life with style.
From Tamira ESP Lab Astrologer-- Over the next two or three months we will see a great transformation begin which includes an increase in the outward expression of the ESP Lab®-- as more goddess and feminine warrior energy, which up to his point has been more internal in its expression. Karmic and ancestral relationships resurface to forge with the ESP Lab® thus increasing its strength, wisdom and knowledge. We are blessed with the opportunity to begin the healing process of the Energy of the goddess on earth -- to bring Her into full manifestation within the ESP Lab®. We still have a window of opportunity to tap into the ESP Lab prosperity and expansive opportunities. Saturn remains Retrograde slowing down the success of the Lab but during this resting period this energy can be utilized toward redefining how success will look within its membership.

If you have an important meeting or date, check these for timing. As March enters April we ride the high energy of the full moon of March 29th with Mars now direct. - Sami
ALL FOOL'S DAY-- April 1-- The Moon is in the intense sign of Scorpio… folks can be moody & suspicious or one can intensely merge with another at this time. Moon trine Jupiter gives an opportunity for good fortune. All Fool's Day was celebrated in ancient times as the true beginning of the year. In the Tarot, the FOOL represents the O-- the Egg of Spirit that contains all things & comes before the Initiation of the 1 card-- the Magus or Maverick Magician.
April 2, 3, and 4-- Easter Weekend-- an ancient word for spring is "estre," and whether you celebrate OSTARA the Spring Goddess, EOSTRE the Great Mother Goddess-- or the resurrection of JESUS-- folks all over the world celebrate the return of Spring and the renewal of LIFE. Regardless of your personal thoughts about Easter the astrological forecast for this weekend is challenging and I recommend caution. Venus squares Mars early on Saturday offering a conflict between the "perfect lovers" and opposites…. the goddess of love and the god of war. This challenge is enhanced as the Moon square Saturn* Sunday night and then Mercury squares Mars (communications with the potential for anger and conflict). Experience SPRING ENERGY and renewal anyway, and use extreme caution in interactions! Lots of ENERGY! Use wisely.
April 5-- Things will improve with the Moon trine both Mercury and Venus the next day.
New MOON-- in Aries at 5:29 am on April 14-- Let's let go of Winter doldrums and set in motion our Spring plans!
MERCURY WILL TURN RETROGRADE-- April 17th at 9:06 pm California time-- slip into "plod through it, get through it mode." Say less, strive for mental clarity & patience in communications-- avoid travel and electronic purchases. Use the directed energy the first half of the month to get things done. Mercury Retro is not a good time for major changes. Access the RA-diant ORANGE LIGHT OF ILLUMINATION to assist with Mental clarity. Strive to access and stay within your spiritual center. A Lab Member said, Mercury may be Retro but Ishtar isn't! Mercury is direct May 11th 3:27 pm!
April 19 -- Sun Enters Taurus at 9:30 pm-- Happy Birthday to all our TAURUS members… be blessed with LOVE & Beauty!
FULL MOON in Scorpio at 5:18 am on April 28th-- This will be an intense full moon… and I count every FULL MOON as the time the Mother gives birth to the child of the collected thoughts from the two previous weeks. It is a time of wish fulfillment, and I like the night before when the Moon trines Neptune to tap into good intuition before I cast my true wishes with clarity. Moon will oppose Mercury (with challenges in communication)-- heightened by Mercury R and the powerful full moon energy. Use caution to avoid temper tantrums road rage and accidents as the Moon squares Mars.
From Tamira ESP Lab Astrologer-- Powerful female spiritual energy surges through the ESP LAB Chart in April. The ESP lab is going to receive a boost to its ability to communicate to its members-- its ability to reach a wider audience is now possible. This may be through the use of added technology or a new technological venue. Saturn is still giving the ESP lab some trouble by limiting how it is perceived and received by the public. It will take directed effort to move through these challenging times. If the membership is focused on the true purpose of the Lab as an unwavering cornerstone in their life - disciplined and focused in its beliefs and ready to manifest what they need and how they need it then all will be well. Do not lose faith in the vision of the future. There is opportunity to go back and fix any communication issues or problems during the Mercury Retrograde. Jupiter the Great Winged Angel continues to provide a boost to financial windfalls and increases in income, although it may be via unusual sources. Don't be closed minded when opportunity knocks on your door.

February 28th-- Full Moon in Virgo-- a restless excited Full moon with the Moon opposing Mercury the night before. Be careful of extravagant spending and excess with the Moon square Jupiter. Intellectual insights with the Virgo moon. Every Full Moon is a magickal opportunity as it is the highest energy day of the 28 day lunar cycle. The Moon Mother gives birth to the child of the past two weeks of thoughts, so watch your thoughts and ask the Mother to bless them!
March 14th-- Moon in Pisces on eve of new moon. Pisces moons are the most fertile time for planting seeds both physical and magickal. With the Sun conjunct Mercury and the Moon conjunct Jupiter on the darkest night I name this the best Magickal Day Opportunity. (Daylight savings time begins.)
March 15th-- NEW MOON in Pisces at 2:01 pm-- continues the most magickal of days. The Moon is conjunct the Sun, Uranus, and Mercury-- a time of connectedness to the Universe with new opportunities for freedom with enhanced communication and renewal as the New Moon slips into Aries late in the evening.
March 17th-- St. Patrick's day-- Let's tune into the magickal nature spirits and leprechauns and dance with magick glee for happiness and prosperity. Plenty of energy for good communications as Mercury enters Aries and trines Mars… with the Moon in Aries.
March 20th-- VERNAL EQUINOX-- Sun enters Aries 10:32 am. The ancient Romans counted SPRING as the beginning of the year and so it is. A time of feasting, frolicking, celebrating the goodness of the goddess as She returns bringing gifts of fertility, growth, and love.
March 29th-- FULL MOON in Libra at 7:25 pm-- Moon in Libra helps to balance the scales of your emotions… watch the Moon square Pluto in the evening as it indicates explosive emotionalism. Venus sextile Neptune can give intuitive insight into your love life.
March 30th-- Passover-- a reminder of the importance of turning to spirit and following guidance to survive the challenges that life offers.
March 31-- Can be intense with the Moon in Scorpio as folks can be moody and suspicious. Moon opposing Venus with the Moon squaring Mars can lead to challenges in love leading to temper tantrums and fights… there is lots of energy to channel in the right direction.
From Tamira ESP Lab Astrologer-- Exciting Energy shifts are happening this year - enhance your Personal Energy by simply lighting an ESP Astro Energy Candle (that you have anointed for that purpose) and begin your magical work. If you have not already started working on your money spells for this year please start - don't miss out on this incredibly Powerful and Electric energy available to you. You may see a little extra cash arrive suddenly from an unexpected source especially around the 9th. Sing Al's prosperity song every chance you get… put a little smile on your face as you draw prosperity (body/mind/spirit) toward yourself and family. The ESP LAB chart - has some big energy changes coming up over the next few months. The first is Past Karma beginning to release and a new way of Be-ing starting to unfold - this will take us right to the end of the year. I think you are going to start to see a push from the Universe - to solidify the true purpose of the New ESP Lab and information will begin to unfold in a wonderfully exciting way.

From Tamira, Lab Astrologer-- this is a great month to put some energy into Windfalls--. a transiting Jupiter /Neptune conjunction with ESP's natal Venus in the 2nd house of money - can be conducive to windfalls or at the least unexpected increases in income - money that seems to fall from the sky… that conjunction is really strong from Jan 27th to Feb 15th. This is a great month to work on the astral plane to create desired wealth and utilize this energy toward financial increase…

Uh oh! (from December 2009 Astro Forecast)--MERCURY WENT RETROGRADE-- December 26th-- time to slip into "plod through it, get through it mode." A slower time in tune with January's cold here in the mountains. Say less, use patience in communications, avoid travel and electronic purchases. Use the directed energy the second half of the month to get things done. Mercury Retro is not a time for major changes. Mercury goes direct January 15th at 8:52 am!!!
December ended the month with a second FULL MOON
December 31-- FULL MOON, BLUE MOON in Cancer 11:13 am with a Lunar Eclipse-- Folks will tend to feel this Lunar Eclipse more strongly with challenges from the Moon opposing Pluto (emotional explosions) Moon square Saturn (depression, life is hard), & Moon opposing Venus (domestic challenge, heart ache). With the mental confusion of Mercury Retro this would be a good night to stay at home and meditate and pray rather than go out and party all night. AUM AUM AUM. So it is a blue moon, with a lunar eclipse, bringing a special influence to the beginning of the year…
Let's see what Tamira, our ESP LAB astrologer has to add, Moving into our New Year 2010--
Eclipses can definitely get some bad press – doom and gloom predictions are often the case when we hear about the dreaded Eclipse and their 6 month fall out. Especially after this last year of financial and governmental upheaval we can see how some people can fall into this murky trap. Lets take a walk on the wild side and look at what positive possibilities exist with these potentially life changing waves of astrological energy.
The Lunar Eclipse presents us with an inward flow of energy, bringing inner changes and realizations. The ESP LAB Energy will receive a Positive Surge of Strength in its Service to Others which will slowly build over the next six months, ESP members will have the opportunity to create new partnerships, friendships and provide healing work and support for each other. Moments of deep introspection, Unconditional Love and Spiritual Communication with fellow members will be available in the safe and relaxed atmosphere of your own home by tuning into Sami’s designated Monthly Energy Days.
January 2010-- After the Year End excitement dies down, we turn to face the new list of goals we made promises to – this year we are provided with a powerful month ahead – just what we need to meet the New Year head on. Saturn once again moves retrograde (January 14 still in a mighty Square with Pluto) so continue to re-evaluate and balance your budget … here is your opportunity to re-do your goals ponder what is really important to you, perhaps you forgot to include some things you really want - not just what you need. Use these powerful aspects and your magickal fortitude to your advantage by focusing on positive outcomes.
The Solar Eclipse (January 14, New Moon in Capricorn with conjunction to Venus) this solar eclipse presents us with an outward flow an Action oriented energy. Since we are utilizing the Lunar eclipse energy toward healing and Unconditional love for all ESP Members we can use this active energy to focus Love and Healing energy with a helpful hand toward our neighbors, friends and loved ones. This continues right through the end of the month with the burst of excitement provided by the full moon in Leo conjunct Mars (Full Moon January 29). The Sun and Venus are still traveling together as they touch a beautiful trio of healing planets. Members can tap into a Feminine Warrior-like healing combination active in the ESP Lab Chart during this full moon.

December begins and ends the month with a FULL MOON so it is a blue moon month.
December 1st-- FULL MOON in Gemini at 11:30 pm-- Celebrate with the Moon Goddess as she gives birth to the thoughts of our last 14 days. Moon opposes Venus early so watch out for domestic challenges. In the evening Venus moves into Sag so explore new love.
December 16th-- New Moon void of course in Sag at 4:02 am-- Moon is v/c all morning and into early afternoon so expect the unexpected and actions taken produce unexpected results. Moon moves into Capricorn early pm. Don't let the goat's pessimism get to you-- especially with the Moon square Saturn in the late eve. Set your new good thoughts in motion, in spite of it all!
December 21st-- WINTER SOLSTICE, Sun Enters Capricorn-- at 9:47 am.. while the Moon is in Pisces-- Again, much of the day with the Moon Void of Course, with the Moon entering Pisces at 3:42 pm? making for a most magickal evening. Set your magick in motion for the new year with the Piscean fertility, during the increase of the Moon, and the Return of the LIGHT. A good fortune day with Jupiter conjunct Neptune and then the Moon conjunct Jupiter? good energies continue thru Pisces Moon of 22nd & 23rd. Plant more magick seeds.
SAMTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN (Winter Solstice Thru Christmas and into the new year!)-- Sami has "played" Samta Claus for over 30 years now, and will bring gifts to some local children again this year. He comes by it naturally being a direct relative. As The Santa told Sami (words to live by) in a magick retreat in the desert near Palm Springs,"the greatest magick is the JOY you can bring to the hearts of the people." The Spirit of both Hanukkah and Christmas is giving and receiving so take a moment and fill out your Winter Solstice, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, New Year's wishes card-- and get them into your ESP LAB®. Our staff and participating members claim good fortune through out the year for this project. And if you have a holiday tree this year, remember? Samta likes cookies and milk.
Christmas eve-- December 24-- A more challenging day with the Moon square Venus, then Pluto, then the Sun, then opposing Saturn? easy to be disappointed in love and feel challenged and explosively emotional.
Christmas day-- December 25th-- Moon is still in Aries and we are riding the squares of the previous day along with Sun square Saturn and Moon square Mercury, restless excitable energy. Celebrate anyway. It is the last day before? Uh oh!
MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE-- December 26th-- time to slip into "plod through it, get through it mode." A slower time in tune with January's cold here in the mountains. Say less, use patience in communications, avoid travel and electronic purchases. Use the directed energy of most of the month to get things done. Mercury Retro is not a time for major changes.
December 31-- FULL MOON, BLUE MOON in Cancer 11:13 am with a Lunar Eclipse-- Folks will tend to feel this Lunar Eclipse more strongly with challenges from the Moon opposing Pluto (emotional explosions), Moon square Saturn (depression, life is hard), & Moon opposing Venus (domestic challenge, heart ache). With the mental confusion of Mercury Retro this would be a good night to stay at home and meditate and pray rather than go out and party all night. AUM AUM AUM
ALL IN ALL-- This has been the year of the OX and for us tigers, more challenges. Let's finish the year strongly and look forward to the White Metal Tiger year coming in 2010!

October 31-- Halloween night? increasing Aries moon close to the full moon. Our pagan High Holy Day of great magick opportunity, celebrating the transition of the dead to eternal life, and the thinness of the veils that separates the worlds and alternate dimensional realities.
November 1-- All Saints Day-- v/c (void of course) Moon in Aries most of the day moving into Moon in Taurus. This is the last night before the moon "flips over" so we count the full moon as the time the Goddess gives birth to the child of our thoughts? a time of celebration and magicks. Save your magicks for later in the evening when the Moon is in solidly in Taurus. Watch out for the influence of the Moon square Venus (domestic challenge and heart ache) and Mercury square Mars (angry communications). You must tune into good vibes to achieve good results with your positive magicks.
FULL MOON-- November 2-- in Taurus at 11:14 am. The Moon squares Mars providing the "temper tantrum, fist fights and wars" energy. After the Mars square from the day before and on the full moon? this could be intense. There is lots of energy available if you can flip it to the right channel. However, watch out for road rage, accidents and angry challenges from others. Meditate on your Higher Self and only engage in magicks if you can switch to the higher consciousness channel!
November 3rd-- Election day-- Moon is void of course most of the day creating delays in actions? frustration could be high with the Mars energies riding high on the fullness of the moon. Moon square Jupiter can make folks extravagant, generous, and financially foolish.
New MOON-- November 16th, v/c in Scorpio at 11:14 am-- New moon is always a time to set your new lunar cycle in motion. Leave behind the past and celebrate the new. Take advantage of the Scorpio energy (intense reproductive fertility) by casting your magickal seeds the night before, when the moon is in a water sign. V/C moons are not a time for magickal operations. Moon moves into Sag at 9:22 pm. Leonids meteor showers.
November 19th-- This could be a triple whammy day of challenge with the pessimistic influence of the Moon in Capricorn and the Moon squaring Saturn (depression or the feeling that life is hard). Venus squaring Mars can bring domestic anger management issues? so mind your p's and q's and make sure you are surrounded and filled with positive spiritual energies to make your way through this.
November 26th-- Thanksgiving Day-- The official day to count your blessings with Thanksgiving which only multiplies your good! It reminds you that winter is coming and accept the harvest. Moon is V/C most of the day, which means actions taken produce unexpected results and expect the unexpected.
November 28th-- Moon in Aries-- a day of more directed energy and harmony with the Moon trine Mars (good vitality, energy) Moon trine Mercury (good communications and mental energy) with the Moon sextile Jupiter (opportunity for good fortune) especially November 29th-- Moon in Taurus-- with Mercury trine Jupiter (communications that can bring good fortune).
ALL IN ALL-- This is a great month to get things done as there is plenty of Cozmic energy available. Do use extra care and caution on the Mars square days? and with plenty of Spiritual Light, KNOW that everything is all right and press forward with your creative agenda.

Avoid heart ache: Venus squares/oppositions: 1, 9, 15, 23
Oct 1 & 2 -- Moon in Pisces-- folks will be sensitive but thoughts will be fertile. Moon opposed by Venus can mean domestic challenge. Increasing moon near full.
HARVEST FULL MOON -- on Satyrday, October 3rd, at 11:10 pm in Aries-- Lots of energy as the Moon squares Pluto (caution yourself against explosive fiery emotions). Flip the energy into receiving bountiful harvest with LOVE & THANKS giving. YES!
Oct 4 -- Lots of energetic relationships between planets riding the ARIES full moon. Can be good fortune and good magicks, but you have to be able to transform the temper tantrum aspect of Moon square Mars late in the day.
Oct 5 - 7 - Moon moves into Taurus as a number of MOON trines-- Pluto, Venus, then Saturn-- still riding the full moon harvest energy brings opportunity especially as we shift into Moon in Gemini on the afternoon of the 7th with Mercury conjunct Saturn. Communication advances.
October 8 -- Two more nice trines (harmonies) as the MOON trines first the Sun and then Jupiter? more good fortune just pouring in.
October 9 -- multi square day multi challenge day-- with MOON square Venus, then Uranus, then Saturn, then Mercury, as it opposes Uranus then Pluto. I am going to take a deep breath and pray harder this day to stay out of people's way. Ughh!... and try to stay positive and take a day away if can pull it off, being the sissy that I am to the Cozmic Weather.
New MOON<u> -- on Satyrday, October 17, at 10:33 pm V/C in Libra. Nice Moon trine Jupiter, then trine Neptune, then conjunct the sun. Good time for fortune, intuition with balance of mind and emotions.
October 31-- Halloween, and its older spelling Hallowe'en, is shortened from All-hallow-even, as it is the evening before All Hallows' Day... or All Saints day. Medieval Christians believed All Hallows Night was the one night per year that the gateways to Heaven and Hell were open. Also known as Samhain, the high holiday originated with the Celtic tribes. This Festival marked the end of summer-- the coming of winter-- the two halves of the year -- the dark and the light. Summer runs from Beltane to Samhain and winter from Samhain to Beltane. Samhain is one of the Greater Sabbats observed by pagans and Wiccans. This is a time when the veils that separate the worlds of the living and the dead become thinner... allowing spirits and ghosts to cross over. Halloween is a festival dedicated to the honor of the dead. So honor the souls of the departed this night!
ALL IN ALL I would say this is the best set of aspects that I have seen all year for getting things done,,, with pleny ot energy to do it? Just make sure that you don't let the intensity of the energies spiral out of control-- rather take charge of your destiny and use SPIRIT POWER to flip the most challenging energies into your new positive reality. OKIE DOKEY so mote it be!

USE the Power of the LIGHT to transcend the darkness. USE SPIRIT POWER to rise above the obstacles and challenges and WIN through perseverance. The good news is that the solar and lunar eclipses are behind us? as well as Retrograde motion of the inner planets? through Winter Solstice.

Better Days for Magicks: 5, 6, 7, 11, 17, 20
Note: with the lunar eclipse (for the second month in a row) folks can feel dis-connected from the source. Make sure you are directly connected to Spirit with Love during any magickal operations.

8, 10, 18, 22, 25, 26, 29
Avoid depression Saturn squares/oppositions: 1, 8, 10, 15, 28,
Avoid heart ache: Venus squares/oppositions: 1, 2, 10
August 1-- Moon is in Sag so folks can be friendly and want to party. Mixed aspects with the Saturn square adding a note of depression and Venus opposing Pluto bringing the potential for emotional challenge and heart ache. However tune into the Moon sextile Jupiter (an opportunity for good fortune) and the Moon trine Mercury bringing a better mental perspective.
FULL MOON-- August 5th-- with Lunar Eclipse 5:55 pm, in Aquarius: I always celebrate every full moon as the feast time for the Goddess. She brings her new child, built upon the thoughts and emotions we have held over the previous two weeks. The lunar eclipse can make the primal person within feel dis-connected from the Source.Panic can ensue? instead turn to the Eternal Spirit within and KNOW that you are always connected to the Source. As Al would say, the Aquarian Full Moon can bring all the "nuts" out? tune in and manage the eccentric within and balance the zany without.
August 8-- Moon is in Pisces-- the most yin and sensitive of the signs. Folks can feel vulnerable, and it is said that "one will walk a mile to get his feelings hurt" during a Pisces moon. This is amplified coming off the full moon with the Moon squaring Mars and the opposing Saturn. The challenge is to balance the vulnerability, anger and depression by tuning into Spirit.
August 10-- Moon is in the initiating fire sign of Aries-- a time of enthusiasm and energy. Watch out for headstrong behavior especially with the Moon square Pluto (Aug 9) which can lead to explosive emotionalism & the Moon square Venus (heart break/ache) with Mars square Saturn, a challenging anger lesson on the 10th.
August 11-- the Moon is Void of Course (between signs from about 1 pm to 10 pm. Actions taken produce unexpected results and expect the unexpected. Some nice aspects of the Moon trine the Sun, then sextile Mars, Jupiter, Neptune-- then trine Pluto. Good energy.
August 12-- Moon in Taurus, with a Moon sextile Venus-- a good day for appreciation of the arts, good food and drink and merry making with your loved one.
August 13-- I like the Mars trine Jupiter while the Moon trines Mercury and Saturn. A day with potential for good fortune, but don't give away the store through financial foolishness and generosity when the Moon squares Jupiter in the afternoon.
NEW MOON-- August 20th-- Void of Course in Leo at 3:02 am: Moon moves into Virgo at 7:00 am. New Moons are always times to set into motion the new pattern and leave behind the old patterns. Use the analytical energy of Virgo to clean up your life experience!
August 22-- Sun enter Virgo at 4:39 pm: Virgo is a practical earth sign, analytical with critical attention to detail. Tune into the working service oriented side of Virgo during this Solar period, culiminating with the harvest of Fall Equinox, September 22, 2009.
August 26-- Women's Equality Day-- A mixed day with communications challenges and angry emotionalism possible. The day improves in the night with a Moon trine Venus, Moon sextile Mercury, as the Moon moves into friendly Sagittarius.
ALL in ALL a month of good directed energy. Keep your Aura bright and your chakras shining and accomplish your pet projects with the LIGHT!

July 1 -- Moon in Scorpio can make folks intense, moody, and suspicious-- heightened by three squares, Venus square Uranus, Mercury square Uranus, Venus square Jupiter. Watch feelings and thoughts in conflict with FREEDOM seeking urges. Mercury trine Uranus and then Jupiter brings unconventional thinking that can bring fortune. A good magick day if you can get into the right mood. CANADA DAY!
July 2 -- Moon still in Scorpio as the Moon is opposed by Mars. Use care and caution to avoid fist fights, temper tantrums, road rage and accidents? there is a lot of energy if you can flip this to a constructive application.
July 3 -- Moon moves into Sagittarius which is a more friendly social time and with the Moon square Jupiter folks can be extravagant and overly indulgent. Moon opposed by Venus can bring domestic challenges and heart ache/break so use caution on finances and love.
JULY 4th -- US INDEPENDENCE DAY Most folks in the USA will be celebrating this holiday. Moon in Sag is good for parties but watch the Mercury opposing Pluto (explosive communications) and the Moon square Saturn (depression-- the feeling that life is hard). Remember the cosmic weather is raining "both sides of the scrimmage line" as Al would say? meaning if you know it is going to rain you can bring an umbrella!
July 6 -- Moon in Capricorn on Monday as the Moon opposes Mercury (restless minds and challenged thinking and communications) as Mars squares first Neptune then Jupiter, right before the full moon (high point of emotional energy). A day of extreme caution especially for the fire signs in the group as the double Mars square energy can create antagonism on a day when the mind is challenged/pessimistic. Use LIGHT!
FULL MOON -- July 7 at 2:21 am in Capricorn: Lunar Eclipse-- Lunar eclipses are unsettling to the primal man, which is still part of each one of us! Capricorn, ruled by Saturn may add another contractive emotional edge-- so watch negative outlooks and do not let them get you down.
NEW MOON -- July 21 at 7:35 pm in Cancer: Solar Eclipse-- Solar eclipses also challenge us, as we tend to feel disconnected from the Sun (Source of all life)? and our primal selves feel the world is coming to an end. Cancer Moon can make us emotional. Venus square Saturn can make us depressed or challenged in love. Focus on the positive and let go of the negative. Moon slips into Leo in the evening and everyone wants attention. Get into the Leo giving energy & be a lover.
SUN ENTERS LEO -- June 22 at 9:36 am-- we enter a power cycle with the potential for accomplishment through creativity, leadership, and generosity.
June 27 -- Moon in Libra on this nice Monday with the Moon trine Jupiter, Venus, and Neptune? a nice way to start the week with harmony of emotions, fortune, heart and intuition.
ALL in ALL a month of good directed energy; however there could be extra challenge to your heart strings? so put on your whole armor of God and smile and win!

May 5-- Cinco de Mayo-- Moon in Libra with the Moon squaring Pluto, then opposing Venus then Mars? not a day for massive celebrations with friends as the Pluto square is explosive emotions with the Venus opposition heart ache and domestic challenge coupled with the Mars opposition? a very good day for a fist fight or temper tantrum? use ultra care and extra light and know there are similar aspects on the 13th and 27th.

Use ORANGE LIGHT for mental clarity. Mercury Retro is not an ideal time for most spell works due to the confusion of the time.
FULL MOON-- May 8 (9:01 pm Pacific Time)-- in Scorpio. Folks can be extra intense this full moon, use the intensity to push the positive!
May 10-- Mother's Day-- Moon is in Sag so folks are friendly and with the Moon trine Venus and then trine Mars? folks are loving with good energy. Celebrate your love of Mother Earth as well as your physical mother.
May 13-- the Moon is in the contractive pessimistic sign of Capricorn coupled with the Moon square Venus then Mars. Watch road rage and use caution to avoid accidents. Easily a day for an ugly spat with a loved one. Instead turn to the LIGHT with extra enthusiasm!

Venus Retrograde is here from Mar 6th to April 17th so use caution and care regarding your more vulnerable emotional nature!! Al Manning gave us some comments about Venus Retrograde for our Web site: www.ESPLAB.com and we have modified the dates to make it current for this year? "Retrograde Venus is a real challenge to one's value system. It only happens about once in 18 months. This year (2009) we get it from March 6th through April 17. Happily it doesn't coincide with Retrograde Mercury times?'cause that feels flat out disastrous. By staying carefully and deliberately positive we can handle it all and go forward together. Let's do it!" Take Al's advice from 2006 and push it forward into now. During the Venus Retro the tendency is for all of your cherished values to get turned upside down. It is said that if you are married you want a divorce, single you want to get married. If you are Jewish you want to try Catholicism and if you are a stockbroker you want to be a bum.... meaning everyone tends to be dis-satisfied with everything for six weeks. This is NOT a time to change friends, jobs, or locations. Use caution and be centered in Spirit and you will get through it! Avoid social events and keep your extra curricular activities to a minimum. Know it will be over in 6 weeks! This is the major aspect that dominates over half of April!!!!
April 1-- April Fool's day! The Great Fool is beyond the beginning and it is said that the folly of the common folks is the wisdom of the gods. This day can be emotional with the Moon in Cancer most of the day with the Moon opposing Pluto (emotional explosions) then squaring Venus (domestic challenge). Venus is still Retrograde (everyone can be dis-satisfied with everything) so use care, plenty of light and stay out of trouble!
April 3-- Another day of caution as Venus squares Pluto giving a challenge to love with the Moon in Leo and everyone wants attention.
FULL MOON-- April 9th in Libra-- at 7:56 am (PT). A more balanced day with the Libra Moon. Passover is a reminder of Moses' magick in tune with God and his ministering angels? remember to invoke the Spirit of protection for you and your family at this time. Be thankful of all the spirit blessings you do have. Moon trine Jupiter gives a good fortune opportunity.
April 10-- Moon is in Scorpio which can make folks moody, intense, and suspicious. Good or Black Friday is observed by many as the day that the Master Jesus sacrificed himself and opened the gates of heaven.
April 12, Easter Sunday-- a more upbeat day with the Moon in Sag makes folks feel friendly. Moon trine Venus does encourage loving feelings.
The word "Easter" is derived from Eostre, an Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring. The Old High German for "Easter" is Ostara, also a spring goddess. Ostara is still alive today and has been helpful in the Lab healing work? on the spring green rey. Spring returns eternally reminding us of celestial cycles of re-birth, renewal, resurrection and new life.
April 14-- last few days of Venus retro and watch out for this one-- with the Moon squaring Mars, Uranus, and Venus and coming off the Moon square Saturn the day before-- so avoid social complications & conflicts.
April 17-- VENUS GOES DIRECT-- Hurray, my least favorite single astro aspect is behind us for another 18 months. This is also the one year anniversary of my grandmaw Dane, Lola, moving to the Spirit World? I am celebrating today? join with me!
SUN ENTERS TAURUS-- At 3:45 pm (PT) with the Moon in Aquarius. A nicer day to play and celebrate Love has returned.
NEW MOON-- in Taurus at 8:23 pm as Venus moves into Aries and a new cycle of love begins. Set your wishes in motion and leave behind any old negativity.This is a month to get through? and to renew our best thoughts and wishes as we leave behind Venus retro.

Venus Retrograde is coming soon! Mar 6th at 9:17 Pacific Time: Al Manning gave us some comments about Venus Retrograde for our Web site: www.ESPLAB.com and we have modified the dates to make it current for this year? "Retrograde Venus is a real challenge to one's value system. It only happens about once in 18 months. This year (2009) we get it from March 6th through April 17. Happily it doesn't coincide with Retrograde Mercury times?'cause that feels flat out disastrous. By staying carefully and deliberately positive we can handle it all and go forward together. Let's do it!" Take Al's advice from 2006 and push it forward into now. During the Venus Retro the tendency is for all your cherished values to get turned upside down. It is said that if you are married you want a divorce, single you want to get married. If you are Jewish you want to try Catholicism and if you are a stockbroker you want to be a bum.... meaning everyone tends to be dis-satisfied with everything for six weeks. This is NOT a time to change friends, jobs, or locations. Use caution and be centered in Spirit and you will get through it! Know it will be over in 6 weeks! This is the major aspect to pay attention to this month!
March 1 to March 6-- For the opening of the month we have directed energy. This changes completely when Venus goes Retrograde. If you have anything really important to accomplish this month, get it done the first week of the month. March 1-- Mooon in Taurus, let's experience enjoyment of living & with the Moon square Jupiter, don't over indulge! Mercury conjunct Mars-- good op for a strong vital communication. March 2-- The Moon is void of course for most of the afternoon and evening? expect the unexpected and with the Moon squaring Mars then Mercury there can be angry volatile emotions and restless excitable minds. Lots of energy to channel positively is the challenge. March 3-- Moon trine Jupiter brings a good fortune opportunity. March 5:Moon moves in Cancer with an increasing Moon. Last good chance for positive magicks without the influence of Venus Retro. March 6th-- Moon in Cancer brings strong feelings as Moon square Venus brings emotional challenge. Access the Spirit Channel & discipline your mind to transcend Venus Retrograde and win! Venus R!
FULL MOON-- March 10 at 7:38 pm in Virgo-- Virgo is the great teacher so open your awareness to the power of the Mother as the Moon, and acknowledge the birth of your good thoughts as they come into reality as the Moon's child. Full moons are always a time of LIGHT and festivities? just make sure you are in tune with Spirit and accept the bounty.
VERNAL EQUINOX March 20 at 4:44 am-- Sun moves into ARIES: Spring is here! This is the beginning of the year (I am like Al, I like every "excuse" I can get to celebrate!) This was the Festival of Birds to the Celts--Alban Eiler, a time of bird-watching from dawn to dusk, with feasting and celebrations as the birds return. One of the eight great spokes of the Wheel, this is a threshold time when the veils between the worlds are thinner, and there are opportunities for visioning & good magicks.
NEW MOON-- March 26 at 9:06 am in Aries-- New moon is always a time to let go of the past that holds you back and set into motion your good thoughts and wishes for a better time. Emotions can be explosive with the Moon square Pluto. Loving energy in the evening with Moon conjunct Venus.
March 31-- Can be confusing with the Moon in Gemini as the Moon squares Mars (temper tantrums) then Saturn (depression) and then Uranus (my freedom is compromised. Do put a positive spin on things and be glad March (and most of Venus Retrograde) is behind us. This month and into April is a great time to put into practice your participation with Spirit for grace, wholeness, wellness, balance, and good vibes, in spite of whatever challenges that you may face.

As I peek ahead to see the Venus Retrograde challenging all cherished values from March 6th to April 17th-- I know that NOW is the time to get in gear and get things accomplished
Favorite magick day: Feb 24 (New Moon in Pisces)
Feb days for good magicks: 2, 3, 4, 9, 17, 24, 25
Use care Mars square/oppositions: 1, 8, 14

Avoid heart ache: Venus squares/oppositions: 5, 6, 12, 20
February 1-- This is the first day of directed Mercury. However we are not quite out of the woods yet. The Moon square Mercury makes minds restless and excited and the Moon square Mars is the temper tantrum aspect. So manage your mind and channel your aggression to prep for one of the eight spokes of the Great Wheel on:
February 2-- Candlemas/Groundhog Day-- Venus moves into Aries, time to begin a new love relation. The Celtic Candle Festival, Imbolc, marks "the dregs of Winter," and marks the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Burn a single candle from Dusk to Dawn. Folks are generous with the Moon square Jupiter (and perhaps extravagant). This day the veils between the worlds are thinner. Time for visioning as preserved in popular Groundhog day. A feast of Brigit, goddess of sacred flames & healing.
February 5-- will be a day of extra caution and more prayers for me with the Moon squaring first Saturn (depression; life is hard), then Uranus while Saturn opposes Uranus and then Venus squares Pluto. With the Moon void of course most of the day, this can be very unpredictable.
FULL MOON-- February 9 at 6:49 am (PST) in Leo-- Lunar Eclipse at the same moment! And the Moon is void of course all afternoon into early evening. Expect the unexpected and actions taken produce unexpected results. Lots of fiery energy with the Leo moon-- and the Moon opposed by Mars from February 8. Seek to harness the electrical energy for good and avoid rages, accidents, and fights. Folks will crave attention and the center of the stage. Lunar eclipse can make folks feel dis-connected. Save your magickal applications for after the eclipse and into the late evening!
February 14-- Valentine's Day-- I always take Feb 14 as an opportunity to celebrate love. Today will be a tricky day as the Moon square Mercury promotes excessive talking that drains energy and the Moon square Mars promotes aggression. Love your way out of it!!
With the Moon in Scorpio folks can be suspicious, intense, and moody? flip the energy for deep merging with another in spite of it all! Take care to avoid fights, road rage, and accidents.
February 17-- is a nice day, with Moon in Sag and folks are friendly. Mars conjunct Jupiter and the Moon sextile Jupiter give good fortune opportunities, while the Moon trine Venus brings love, harmony, and beauty.
February 18th-- The Sun enters Pisces 4:47 am PST. Pisces reminds us Spring is near!
NEW MOON-- February 24 at 5:35 pm in Pisces-- Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras-- a fun and fertile way to begin the lunar cycle. Folks can walk a mile to get their feelings hurt so join with the celestial influence and be sensitive. A most positive time for setting good things in motion. Still under the influence of Mercury conjunct Jupiter?from late evening on the 23rd-- for good fortune-- and followed by Mercury sextile Venus the following evening: loving communications. Use the good energy of this point in time to set in motion a positive lunar cycle. Have fun with this moonth and let's make February a winner for you! Strive to stay in your Spirit Center and let's hear of your successes!

Ride the Moon trine Venus from the previous night. Be aware of the Moon opposing Mars which brings lots of strong energy looking for a positive direction? this is the temper tantrum aspect of 9/11's morning so don't hurt anyone, use care and be nice!
January 11th MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE 8:44 am: 1) don't panic. 2) say less not more. 3) strive to stay in your spiritual center. 4) be extra patient with all communications. 5) prune all unnecessary activity-- especially travel and new projects. 6) avoid new purchases-- especially computers, automobiles, and electronic devices.7) know that this aspect has a beginning, a middle, and an end... keep plodding through it. 8) don't quit your job, change your friends, or your location-- save this for better times. 9) emphasize the "better" aspect of Mercury retro: see old friends, work on stalled projects, clean out closets, consider plans, emphasize spirituality. 10) stay focused on the LIGHT, & know you and yours are all right!

Our calendar is PDST-- Pacific Daylight Saving Time
The word month is based upon the word moon, as our lunar cycles were the way we kept time in the old days. Thus we start with a review from last month? (ESPecially as we try to get these letters out early).
SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS on the 21st of November--- Moon in Virgo (which can mean "I want my way") this is an opportunity for good fortune with Jupiter trine Saturn and then the Moon trines Jupiter. Make the most of it!
NEW MOON on Nov 27th-- in Sag! Wishing you a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY!! The moon is in Sag: folks are friendlier-- this is a good time for a social gathering.

Avoid heart ache-- Venus squares/oppositions: 9, 15, 23
FULL MOON-- December 12th 8:37 am (PST) in Gemini and moving into Cancer in the late evening. This is a very unusual day as it has the influences of several challenging aspects with Mars and Saturn. Mars square Uranus, Moon opposing Mars, Moon square Saturn, Sun square Saturn, and Moon opposing Pluto. I do list this as a day for Good Magicks? with the Moon moving into Cancer in the late evening? however the intensity of the Full Moon with angry energy and the potential of harsh challenges with depression means you should only approach your altar if you can transcend all of this and bring positive vibes. Most of us should limit contact with others and work toward re- programming the energy into creativity.
December 15th-- is a day to watch your p's and q's-- Moon opposed by Venus can create heart break and ache and Mars squaring Saturn can be an angry lesson.
WINTER SOLSTICE as the SUN ENTERS CAPRICORN on the 21st at 4:04 am? Winter Begins and the days start getting longer. Let's toast to the Winter Sun as He starts his annual cycle! Moon is in Scorpio so remember to forgive and forget. Moon square Jupiter will make folks generous, indulgent & possibly extravagant & financially foolish. Generosity prevails. Avoid excess!
HANNUKAH begins on December 22nd-- Moon is still in Scorpio? intense merging with another is possible and folks can be suspicious and moody. Ursids meteor showers so watch the night sky!
CHRISTMAS on December 25th in Sag-- folks will be friendly and partylike with the Sag moon; don't let the Moon square Saturn get you down in the evening!
NEW MOON in Capricorn on December 27th at 4:22 am-- from now til New Year's are specially good times to set things in motion and celebrate the Light's return.
December 31st NEW YEAR'S EVE-- Moon moves into Pisces at 4:27 pm, making the evening a most fertile time for positive magicks, ESPecially with Mercury conjunct Jupiter (Good fortune); good energy with Moon sextile Mars and good loving possible with the Moon conjunct Venus. Folks can be sensitive so give everyone a good vibe. Let's catch the forward motion and make this the best moonth of the year!

During this Hallows Grand Sabbat-- one of the 8 spokes of the Great Wheel-- the traditions of old hold that the veils between the worlds are thinnest so it is a time of divination as well as celebration and for good spell works as well.

Nov 1-- All Saints Day: I like to celebrate this day as fun for living saints everywhere. With the Saturn square and Uranus square the moon it could be challenging as some folks will feel depressed and restricted. Moon in Sag will help so dance your troubles away.
Nov 2-- Daylights Savings ends! Moon in Capricorn 2nd and 3rd will have some folks on the pessimistic side.
Nov 3-- Election eve: a challenging Monday with Venus squares (heart aches & breaks) and Mars square Neptune could be an angry conflict between what you want and what you can dream.
November 4-- Election Day: Moon is void of course 'til about 4 pm adding to the confusion, delays and frustrations. Minds will be restless, excitable, and intense as Mercury moves into Scorpio as the Moon squares Mercury. Vote early by mail if possible. VOTE!
VETERAN'S DAY, Nov 11-- Moon square Jupiter from the night before makes for a generous environment. Love is the air with the Moon trine Venus. Kiss a veteran. FULL MOON-- Nov 12th at 10:17 pm (Our calendar is set PDST-- Pacific Daylight Saving Time)... for some people, this is the traditional Halloween so if you are like Al or Sami you will celebrate both Hallows?

October 2008 (Scroll down for September 2008)

Our calendar is PDST-- Pacific Daylight Saving Time
Mercury went Retrograde September 24th, just two days after the Autumnal Equinox. Our month of October starts with the continuation of the Mercury Retrograde motion. Keep with the Mercury Retro survival plan: don't panic, communicate less, and be patient in communications. Avoid complications-- prune unnecessary activity and strive to be in your spiritual center. Do what must be done-- everything else can wait. Just plod through the challenges of the first two weeks of October. Turn to the ORANGE LIGHT to promote better mental clarity. Use caution in all actions 'til Mercury turns Direct October 15th at 1:06 pm PDST

Use care-- Mars square & opposition days: 8, 15, 22
FULL MOON-- October 14th at 1:02 pm (Our calendar is set PDST-- Pacific Daylight Saving Time) with the Moon in Aries. Full moons are times of celebration for those of different religious traditions. Some Magick folks will state that the October Full Moon is the true Halloween. Al was a good eclectic and so am I, both looking for another "excuse" to have a good time. So celebrate the fullness with ye olde tradition and then celebrate it again at the end of the month. This is also Sukkoth, a holiday for Jews -- commemorating God's watchful protection. Al would say it is all Fun, and I agree with him. So make it so for you and have some FUN. Do watch the Moon square Jupiter as there will be an extravagant tendency to over eat, over drink, and over spend.
Mercury goes Direct-- in the afternoon. Use caution with the Moon opposing Mars as this is a temper tantrum, road rage, accidents and fist fights aspect unless you can flip the energy into productivity.
NEW MOON-- in Scorpio, October 28th-- a most magickal day. Use the prime generation energy of Scorpio to let go of the past and declare/create new good coming your way, especially just a few days before Samahain. Forgive, forget and beware of the Scorpio energy that is moody and suspicious.
HALLOWEEN, October 31st with Moon in Sagitarius-- Hallows is not only one of the favorite holidays for muggles? but is a true high holy day for the druid, wicca, native, pagan crowds. During this Grand Sabbat-- one of the 8 spokes of the Great Wheel-- the traditions of old hold that the veils between the worlds are thinnest so it is a time of divination as well as celebration and for good spell works as well. The Celts called this feast Samhain-- the Celtic New Year-- and was the most important festival of The Wheel. So celebrate, enjoy and set your magical year in motion.

September 2008 (Scroll down for August 2008)

Our calendar is PDST-- Pacific Daylight Saving Time
We have a Blue NEW MOON-- on August 30th at 12:58 pm PT as Venus moves into Libra and Jupiter trines the moon. A second new moon in the month is a magickal opportunity so enjoy the uniqueness of this aspect and set something in motion that you want to achieve. Love is balanced & Fortune shines! As Al would say, "Tonight's the night!"
With the Moon in Virgo folks will be discriminating and will want things their way. Not a big deal to give it to them. Time to practice random acts of kindness and give and receive positive energy.
Hints and High LIGHTS for September: Let's solidly put behind us the darkness of the 2 eclipses of last month. Let's move into a mostly all-systems-go month with only outer planets in the retrograde mode? but uh oh, Mercury goes Retrograde September 24th, just two days after the Autumnal Equinox. So get ready set go-- make the most of the Blue New Moon and set the moonth in motion. Get your projects in action and completed with the Harvest Full Moon. Have a Wonder-full, full filling Fall Turning of the Wheel and get ready to slip into plod mode for the balance of the month.

September 1 LABOR DAY-- The balanced Moon in Libra helps us continue the blue New Moon energy of the past couple of days, and will help us slip back into the regular work mode.
September 2-- With the Moon squaring Jupiter bosses will be more easy going. Watch for financial foolishness overindulgence, and too much generosity.
September 3-- Moon moves into Scorpio. Opportunity for intense merging with another. Watch out for moodiness.
September 6-- a friendly day with the Moon in Sag-- good communications and lovely vibes with the Moon sextile Venus then Mercury. Makes up for September 7 (maybe) as there are five squares (obstacles/challenges) including the Moon square Saturn (life is just hard) and Mars and Mercury both squaring Jupiter. Watch the temper thing and your mouth as both can get you into trouble this day.
September 11-14 are good magicks days and better the closer you get to the full moon. Moon in Pisces the 13th and 14th are most fertile times.
September 15, FULL MOON-- The Harvest full moon at 2:13 AM PDST in Pisces moving into Aries at 2:39 pm. Get ready for the ending of ye olde and the beginning of the new. Water into fire. Your magick will propser if you will observe the full moon energy and cast your magicks when the Moon is still in a water sign? so Satyrday, the night before? is the time for your full moon dance, before the moon flips over!
September 22, Sun enters Libra, VERNAL EQUINOX-- Moon in Cancer, and as the wheel turns we harvest the good of the summer in anticipation of the winter. Celebrate the Goodness of the Goddess!! Harvest Fest!

Use the ORANGE LIGHT to promote better mental clarity. September 29th New Moon in Libra? a time for letting go of the past and moving into the future. September 30th Rosh Hashana-- Jewish New Year begins. Let's all claim the light & win! Shine the LIGHT and be the LIGHT!

August 2008 (Scroll down for July 2008)

Our calendar is PDST-- Pacific Daylight Saving Time
Hints and High LIGHTS for August: This is still a forward motion month with only the outer planets of Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in the Retrograde condition. Doesn't bother us any as we are concerned mostly with the planets between us and the sun, Mercury and Venus, as well as the Moon. Watch words for the Mighty Sun in LEO month are, "I WILL." With a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse some folks can find the month dis-orienting. Play and stay in the LIGHT and know everything is all right, even though you may think the sky is falling and the world is ending! Smile, brighten your aura and win!
Waxing Moon in a water sign: 7, 8
Moon in a water sign right after the full moon: 17, 18
These are fertile times for planting your magick seeds.
Favorite days for good magicks: 7, 8, 15, 16,17, 30
Use care Mars square & opposition days: 6, 11, 16, 26
Avoid depression Saturn squares/oppositions: 10, 17, 24
August 1, NEW MOON -- The new moon is in Leo during a solar eclipse at 3:13 am Pacific Time. Set your affairs in order and center yourself in Spirit as an alternative to the primal subconscious panic an eclipse can foster. Know with the Moon in Leo that everyone craves attention? so pass it around liberally.
Mars oppositions and/or squares on the 6th, 11th, 16th, and 26th are days of caution. This is a temper tantrum fist fight, war, road rage and accidents aspect. Harness this and you can have a lot of energy to do something productive. Folks with lots of air and fire are more susceptible to the influence while water signs can handle this more easily.
Saturn squares or oppositions: 10, 17, 24, I just say no to depression and I find that 90% of the time I feel depressed -- which is rear for me-- Saturn (the great teacher through discipline and hardship) is challenging (the square or opposition) the Moon (our emotions and sub-conscious. Make it a point to turn to the light and be bright during this aspect. Seek fun: find CHEER!
August 16, FULL MOON -- The full moon at 2:16 pm PT is in the zany sign of Aquarius, so expect the unexpected as folks will be unpredictable. The solar eclipse will be unsettling to our primal selves, as we can feel dis-connected from the LIGHT. There is a nice Venus trine Jupiter which is good fortune in love. But watch out for the Mars square Pluto late in the evening as this represents explosive anger. Lots of energy if you get on the right channel. Use the negative to push to positive.
The SUN enters VIRGO -- August 22nd at 11:02 am PDST, the sign of the teacher with the watchwords, "I Analyze." As a Libran I get along with Virgos great, as long as I do everything their way! With a number of Moon trines-- Pluto, the Sun, Saturn, and Jupiter with Venus in the evening? we start the new astro cycle in a harmonious way. With Mercury opposing Uranus we may have mental or communications challenges relating to Freedom and/or unconventional thinking. Sun in Virgo reminds us that fall harvest equinox is only a month away.
We have a Blue NEW MOON -- on August 30th at 12:58 pm PT as Venus moves into Libra and Jupiter trines the moon. A second new moon in the month is a magickal opportunity so enjoy the uniqueness of this aspect and set something in motion that you want to achieve. Love is balanced & Fortune shines tonight! As Al would say, "Tonight's the night!"

July 2008 (Scroll down for June 2008)

Hints and High LIGHTS for JULY: This is really a forward motion month with only the outer planets of Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in the Retrograde condition. Doesn't bother us any as we are concerned mostly with the planets between us and the sun. So we are glad good ole Mercury is solidly direct now promoting good mental clarity and so let's get on with it:Waxing Moon in a water sign: JULY 2, 3, 10, 11, 12,Favorite days for good magicks: JULY 2, 3, 11, 12Use care Mars square & opposition days: 14, 21, 28. Avoid depression Saturn squares/oppositions: 13, 21, 27 JULY 1-- Moon in the mental sign of Gemini and with the Moon conjunct Mercury and trine Neptune it is a good time to get your thoughts and feelings together to launch the new moon on July 2nd. Get your leftovers from the last lunar cycle completed so you are ready for NEW MOON-- in Cancer 7:19 pm (Pacific Standard time) on July 2nd. This is a very fertile time for launching your mental, spiritual and physical seeds. Set the 28 day lunar cycle in motion with positive creative good energy. Note that Venus opposes Jupiter so use care not to let your affections get at cross purposes to your fortune. The Moon opposes Jupiter the following day July 3rd which can lead to financial foolishness, generosity and over indulgence. On the FOURTH OF JULY the Moon moves into Leo and everyone wants to be the center of attention. So make sure to give anyone special in your life a lil more love today. Monday, July 7th there is a Moon trine Jupiter which is a financial opportunity. With the Moon in Virgo, folks will want it done their way! You can erase your gains on Wednesday the 9th of July, with the Sun opposing Jupiter and then the Moon squaring Jupiter use special caution in all your financial affairs this day. The 10th will be a complex day that denotes caution? with 7 major planetary aspects. The Mercury opposing Pluto can bring explosive communications especially with the heart ache aspect of Moon square Venus as the Moon moves into Scorpio that evening. While folks can be suspicious, moody and intense this a powerful sign. The Moon is still in Scorpio the 11th & 12th. Water signs while the Moon is increasing are opportunities for fertile magicks, ESPecially with the Moon sextiling Saturn, then Mars, and then Jupiter. Note Magicks favoring business and finances are favored. July 13th the Moon moves into the friendly sign of Sagittarius, and the Moon trine Venus in the morning favors LOVE. Watch out for the Moon square Saturn that evening as this is the depression, life is just hard aspect. Monday the 14th do take care as the Moon squares Mars early in the morning. I call this the 9/11 aspect as this occurred as the Twin Towers fell. It is the temper tantrum, fist fights, road rage aspect so be careful. There is a lot of energy so strive to use it for good, and be careful as folks are more accident prone. FULL MOON night July 18 the moon is full and void of course at 0:59 am PDST and then goes into Uranus 8:40 in the morning. Get your full moon magick work done before midnight, as a practioner always wants directed energy as opposed to void energy. Like you drive in gear not between gears. The full moon (and three days after) is always the harvest of the energy you have set into motion on the new moon & two weeks after. Plan to catch your share.Monday the 21st will tend to be challenging. With the Moon in Pisces folks will tend to walk a mile to get their feelings hurt, the Moon/Saturn opposition brings depression and the Moon/Mars opposition brings anger? so a day of care! July 22nd our Sun moves into Leo so the watery Cancer "I feel" gives way to the fiery Leo "I will." Sunday the 27th sets up another Monday challenge with the Moon square Saturn in the evening and then a Moon square Mars on Monday the 28th... for the third Monday in a row with a Mars challenge! Then get ready for a light show that night with the Delta Aquarids Meteor shower. Let's make the most of July and let's make it a great summer. Remember you are a Maverick Magician and win big!!

June 2008 (Scroll down for May 2008)

Hints and High LIGHTS for JUNE: -- Don't panic. Stay in your spiritual center as we start the month with Mercury Retrograde motion (from MAY 26th-- Memorial Day until June 19th). As Al Manning wrote for our Website, www.ESPLAB.com:
"The science of astronomy grew out of the art of astrology. Astrologers still look at the universe from a geocentric point of view (the earth as the center of the universe with everything revolving around it). Astronomy adopts the heliocentric viewpoint from which there can be no retrogrades. But it still appears from earth that the planets do occasionally move backwards in their orbits and that's what we call a retrograde condition. Retrograde Mercury is the toughest to handle. It tears hell out of communication in general and presents a bad time to start new projects. But it's a good time for cleaning out your closets and finishing off old or stalled projects. I knew one lady who got frustrated during retrograde Mercury and stormed into her boss's office demanding a raise and she got it."
Al would agree with me that the best plan for Mercury Retro is to let go and let SPIRIT. With the natural mental confusion, it is a time of patience and caution with all communications. Work on stalled projects but do not start new ones as we plod through it. This is not a good time for travel or buying a car or computer. Ritual Work is challenged by the aspect. Avoid social engagements.Utilize the Orange LIGHT of RA's illumination & the RAMA AGNI chants to achieve better mental clarity.
Best Magick Days : -- Avoid anger Mars square/opposition days of-- 1, 15, 23, 29. Avoid depression Saturn squares/oppositions:2, 16, 23, 30.
JUNE 1 -- Moon in Taurus-- folks can be bullheaded and with the Moon Square Mars there can be temper tantrums, fist fights, wars, road rage and accidents.
NEW MOON -- in Geminii, 12:23 PDST-- JUNE 3rd. Our traditional time of letting go of the old you would release and time to create your new beginnings.
USE PLOD MODE -- From June 1st to June 19th as the mental cloudiness of the Mercury retro during this time overshadows most aspects so take on less and use your will + spirit connection to just get through it!
Father's Day--(15th): -- Moon is in Scorpio which can make folks suspicious, moody and intense. Moon squares Mars in the morning so curb the violent tendencies.
FULL MOON -- in Sagittarius at 10:30 am on June 18.Mercury is retro until June 19th in the morning, turning Direct at 7:31 in the morning, before Summer Solstice.
SUMMER SOLSTICE -- Sun moves into Cancer at 4:59 pm. Summer Solstice is the day of maximum illumination and we have the maximum opportunity for spiritual advancement on this day. We are still riding the full moon's energy, so make the most of it.
June 23rd -- Caution is advised with the Moon opposing first Mars then Saturn? so anger then depression. With the Moon in Pisces folks walk a mile to get their feelings hurt so watch out.
June 24th -- A more loving day with the Moon trine Venus. Watch restless excitable minds with the Moon square Mercury. All in all a more challenging month. We can make it through the challenges with spiritual growth as we access the POWER of SPIRIT through our opening Paragraph. And with Spirit Helpers and Friends we have the Victory and the Manifestations. Let's win big together-- in spite of it all-- and let's hear your super success stories.

May 2008 (Scroll down for April 2008)

Hints and High LIGHTS for MAY: This is an all systems go month for most of the month? until we reach Memorial Day? and then Mercury slips RETROGRADE first thing. See it coming and get as many priority projects completed ahead of time. Thus use the current clear energy to get things done and put them behind you. Know that the Merry Month of May is the month of the Magician so be ONE. Play with the frolicking nature spirits and live, love, laugh, and be happy. It is a great time to be alive. Do make sure you get some quality time in nature appreciating HER gifts. Most of May is the month of Taurus ruled by Venus? a month for art, beauty, & appreciation of our earthly gifts.
Moon is in a water sign-- MAY 1, 27, 28
Waxing Moon in a water sign-- MAY 9, 10, 17, 18, 19
Favorite day for good magicks-- MAY 18
Use care Mars square & opposition days of-- 4, 25, 17
Avoid depression during Saturn squares-- 3, 6, 20, 22, 26
MAY 1 -- May Day it's time to play and celebrate the magick month of the magician. A good day with good energy as the Moon trines Mars. Venus trines with Saturn and Pluto bringing transformational love opportunities. Moon sextile Jupiter gives a good fortune opportunity, and with the Moon in Pisces folks are sensitive so use this fertile energy positively.
NEW MOON -- in Taurus 5:18 am (Pacific Standard time) on Cinco de Mayo, MAY 5th. Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower will brighten the night sky so take a peek and get inspired. Moon trine Jupiter can bring good fortune.
May 18 -- Best Magick Day: It's the last day before the moon turns over, and it is in the powerful creative fertile sign of Scorpio. Venus (love) Trines Jupiter (fortune) for a most powerful combination. This trine is most harmonious. Take advantage of the celestial influences to plant your chosen seed thoughts. Celebrate the Goddess of the MOON giving birth to HER child, and know it is your own thoughts maturing and manifesting.
FULL MOON night May 19th starts in Scorpio then is void of course at 7:11 pm as the moon is full PDST (Pacific Daylight Saving time) and it quickly goes into Sag. Get your full moon magick work done early to benefit from the fertility of the intense Scorpio energy.
MAY 25 -- Watch out for the Moon opposing Mars as this is the temper tantrum, fist fight, and road rage aspect. Plenty of energy if you can get on the right channel. MAY 26th-- Memorial Day. Of note Mercury goes RETROGRADE, first thing in the morning at 8:48 am. Don't panic, rather stay in your spiritual center and focus on the better aspects of Mercury retro which is planning, working on stalled projects, cleaning out closets and organizing, and seeing established friends. As a reminder, Mercury retro is not a good time to buy a car or a computer-- & it is NOT a time to travel or start new projects. Remember to strive towards patience in communications and use caution regarding contracts. Mercury is retro until June 19th in the morning-- right before Summer Solstice. On the 26th--Coming out of the Mars opposition and a Venus square Saturn? (emotional and domestic challenge) I would strive to get home early if I was traveling this weekend!All in all, a great month. Let's use plenty of LIGHT to TRIUMPH! I will tend to start early, and work extra hard so I can coast a little bit, once Mercury retro hits. Access the POWER of SPIRIT through our opening Paragraph and with our Spirit Helpers and Friends we have the Victory and the Manifestations. Let's win big together, and let's hear your super success stories.

April 2008 (Scroll down for March 2008)

Hints and High LIGHTS for APRIL: This is really another all systems go month with only the outer planets of Saturn and Pluto retrograde. It's official now, SPRING is here, so tune into the celestial rhythms of LIFE and be re-born with all of nature.
Let's completely let go of any winter leftovers and listen to the birds and the sounds of rushing waters and celebrate joyfully the beginning of a new season and a new year to the ancient Romans, and many other ancient peoples. Prune all that is not needed so that you can grow unhindered from limitations of the past. Tune into the LIFE FORCE, experience new energy and celebrate RE-birth; be in tune with the Earth! Be RE-BORN!
Moon is waxing in a water sign-- April 10, April 11, April 20th and the day after the full moon April 21 is also a good day for planting your physical or magickal seeds! Other good days are April 7,8, 12, and 19.
April 1 -- All fool's day! We carry over the festivities and Spring Equinox celebration of the renewal of life by honoring the great Fool? that which is before the beginning. Moon is in Aquarius which can add to the zany fun while the Moon sextiles the sun.
NEW MOON -- in ARIES 8:55pm (Pacific Standard time) on April 5th. This charging Ram fire moon is amplified by the Moon square Mars? a time of caution for those who wish to avoid accidents, road rage, and temper tantrums. There is more energy than normal for a new moon so catch it and channel it constructively if you can.
April 19 -- The Sun enters Taurus? the charging Ram gives way to the plodding more mellow bull. Watch out for the Moon square Mars close to the full moon. This is the new moon's fist fight energy all over again but more intensified. With the Moon square Jupiter the temper tantrum can be an expensive mistake. Also watch out for financial foolishness and excess drinking and eating.
FULL MOON -- in SCORPIO 3:25 am PDST (Pacific Daylight Saving time) on April 20th. It's Passover.April 22-- EARTH DAY. Moon is in Sag in the afternoon which can make folks friendly and in the party mood but the party spirit is dampened with the Moon square Saturn which can make you depressed & feel that life is just hard.
April 23 -- Secretary's day. Well the Saturn challenge of the 22nd bleeds into today and with Venus first squaring Mars and then Jupiter? it is a time to use plenty of extra LIGHT to get through the day. There will be distinct emotional challenges love, sex, fortune. A good day to get you heart broken so ask ISHTAR for some help.
April 24-- With Mars opposing Jupiter your fortune can be challenged so keep playing it safe.
April 30 -- Moon is in Pisces, the sensitive water sign. With the Moon opposed by Saturn don't walk a mile to get your feelings hurt. Instead get ready to play for May day!
All in all, a great time to make forward motion and progress on your physical and spiritual programs. Remember to have fun, access your good spirit friends at least daily and win!

March 2008 (Scroll down for February 2008)

Hints and High LIGHTS for March: This is really an all systems go month with only Saturn retrograde. Gather your energy and strength for the transformation of Winter into Spring. Let go of winter doldrums and prepare to be reborn. Prune all that is not needed so that you can grow unhindered from limitations of the past. Tune into the LIFE FORCE, experience new energy and celebrate RE-birth; be in tune with the Earth! Be RE-BORN! Moon is in an water sign-- 6, 7, 14, 15, 23, 24, 25, and these are better times to launch your magickal seeds!
March 1-- Moon opposing Mars in the morning gives plenty of energy to start your day & month. Use it wisely as the aspect can make you angry.
March 5-- Three eclipses? the Moon conjuncts Mercury, Venus and then Neptune each one with an eclipse! All while the Moon is in the eccentric and unpredictable sign of Uranus. Expect the unusual and starts and stops.
NEW MOON-- in Pisces 9:14 am (Pacific Standard time) on March 7th. Pisces New Moon is a most fertile time for initiating any new project. Feelings can be hurt with the ultra sensitivity of the Moon in Pisces, so use caution in relationships. The Moon sextile Jupiter gives a favorable fortune energy to the day. Do watch out for the Mars opposing Pluto in the early morning? as volatile mysteries, explosions are possible. March 8-- As the moon moves into Aries today, and with the Moon squaring Pluto then Mars? the explosive nature of the new moon is increased. Caution is in order. March 9-- Daylight Savings Time Begins (turn clocks ahead one hour); Moon in Aries March 16-- Palm Sunday has a nice Venus trine Mars? harmony between the perfect lovers, balance between the male and female principles. With the Moon in Leo in the evening folks want to be adored. Give a little attention & you won't be bored! The heart rules tonight! March 17-- St. Patrick's Day. Mercury opposes Saturn so be careful with your communications that they do not author hardship.
VERNAL EQUINOX-- March 19-- Sun Enters Aries, a cardinal fire sign of positive polarity, ruled by Mars-- at 10:49 PDST. This is the Traditional beginning of the ancient Roman new year! SPRING IS THE BEGINNING!
FULL MOON-- in Libra 11:40 am PDST (Pacific Daylight Saving time) on March 21st. Purim and Good Friday. Could be a challenging day with the fullness of the moon while the Sun squares Pluto, then the Moon squares Pluto reflecting the potential for an intense challenge from the unknown. Moon square Mars make the mix volatile and potentially violent? not a night to go to the bars! March 22-- Moon in Libra last night and tonight help to balance the otherwise crazy energy. Moon square Jupiter makes folks financially foolish, extravagant, and excessive in food and drink. Think twice about overdoing? over tipping, over eating and drinking. March 23-- Easter Sunday-- a time of Re-birth with the Moon void of course all day so expect the unexpected and put off important ventures. Moon in Scorpio in the evening will make some feel moody, intense, suspicious. Watch the Scorpio sting. Remember to forgive and forget! ALL IN ALL-- A great month for NEW BEGINNINGS. Touch the opening Power STAR often, and be thankful for SPIRIT'S HELP.

February 2008 (Scroll down for January 2008)

Mercury goes RETROGRADE! So slip into plode mode!" is how we ended our column last month? and it is how the month begins! It is our theme of the month from: January 29th to February 19th! It's shorter than usual, so grin and bear it!
Hints for February: The good news about Mercury retro is that it usually only lasts a little over three weeks? so remember it has a beginning, a middle and an end. I prepare for it like I was going into a swamp? I lighten my load, and only carry with me that which is essential? so on one level it becomes like a mini-vacation because I only pursue that which must be done, and save my energy for more directed motion. So prune unnecessary activity, be patient in communications, stay in your spiritual center (as the spiritual can transcend), don't make major changes of job, friends, or location, and emphasize better aspects of Mercury retro like planning, organizing, cleaning clutter and seeing established friends. Remember February is in the depth of winter which is a time of dormancy? so get your rest!
Highlights of the month include:
New Moon-- February 6th, Moon in Aquarius on Ash Wednesday? expect to be unpredictable from the freedom seeking urge for eccentricity. Mental and communication opportunities as the Sun then the Moon both conjunct Mercury.
Chinese New Year; The RAT: A year of family, and industriousness, and conservation. Good Fortune!
MERCURY GOES DIRECT: Monday February 18th--as the Sun enters Pisces on President's day at 6:57pm-- Pacific Standard Time, USA
FULL MOON -- February 20th?Moon opposes the Sun with a Lunar eclipse at 7:30 pm--PST
ALL IN ALL-- A great month for rest, relaxation, and re-newal. Gather SPIRIT POWER all month long? touch the opening Power STAR often, and be thankful for SPIRIT'S HELP. Contact the POWER of the LIGHT and win big! Let' all expect Really Good Energy all month long-- and all YEAR long-- for ourselves, for each other & our ESP Laboratory-- & family & friends. And it is so!

September 2007 (Scroll down for August 2007)

Our month begins with Venus retro, but relax we are almost through it and Sept 8 is the magick date of directed Venus. So dry your eyes and prepare to fly! Note all times mentioned are Eastern time.
Hint for September: Get through the first 8 days with as much emotional balance as possible. As Venus goes direct, know that the directed energy of the remaining 22 days of the month will give you a good opportunity to gather resources and make things happen. Autumn equinox is a reminder that winter approaches, so enjoy the fruitfulness of the season, and put away stores for the next cycle.Best planting days for your magickal seed thoughts: 13th, 14th, 15th, 23rd, 24th, and 25th.
Highlights of the month include:

September 8-- VENUS GOES DIRECT!!! (12:13 PM) Oh Happy Day! Do note we can still feel the effect of the six week long aspect for a few more days. Folks will tend to be emotionally weary from the last period and the dis-content and dis-satisfaction can carry over for a few more days! Break the chain celebrate with JOY!
September 9-- Saturn eclipse at 10:58 pm? just a little emotional bump as we dis-connect from the Lord of Trade and commerce.
New Moon-- 9-11-07 8:44 am (solar eclipse 5:44 am) This will tend to be a rocky day for most of us with the eclipse making folks restless and afraid, & the Mars square the moon, promoting fist fights and wars (the same aspect occurred the morning of 9-11 when the twin towers fell) and also with the explosive emotions of moon square Pluto. Watch road rage, and avoid confrontation. Lots of energy if you find the right place to put it!
September 13 -- Moon in Libra sextile Jupiter with Mercury sextile Jupiter a good day for communicating and generating good fortune with Venus sextile the moon and the moon trine Jupiter? a LOVEly day.
September 14,15,16-- Moon in Scorpio which tends to make folks intense, suspicious, and moody, but a great time for magickal creation with the waxing moon if you get on the right channel. A power time.
AUTUMNAL EQUINOX, Sun Enters Libra-- Sunday, September 23-- Let's celebrate the turning of the wheel with the harvest time of all the best we have put forward in the past many months. This is time of thanksgiving also known as the Celtic Festival of the Vine,

Eve of Full Moon-- Traditional Harvest Feast Tuesday, Sept 25-- Moon in Pisces, folks can be emotionally sensitive and with the Moon square Jupiter right before the full moon it is easy to be generous to the point of financial foolishness. It is also easy to overindulge and eat and drink too much. So celebrate just right!
Full Harvest Moon -- Sept 26 Woden's day 3:45pm in the sign of Aries? a time of great enthusiasm. Watch out as we relive the Mars square energy and Pluto square energy of 9 -11. Watch your P's and Q's and especially be careful of head injuries this day. An opportunity for productivity and watch your step, and driving! There will be more road rage and more accidents this day.

August 2007 (Scroll down for July 2007)

We just had an overview of the celestial pattern for August earlier in the newsletter so check out CELESTIAL TIDES. Our month begins in the outgoing sign of Leo, the majestic lion, the sun. However since Venus is retrograde all month it is time for most of us to shelter our more vulnerable emotions and stay at home! That is unless we want to share our emotional feelings in public!Highlights of the month include:
August 1 -- we are still riding high on the full moon's energy (from July 29th). Watch out for the financial foolish aspect of Jupiter square the moon. A time of feasting, extravagance, and tipping the waitress too much.
New Moon-- in Leo at 7:02 pm (Eastern time) on August 12, also the night of the Perseids meteor shower. Everyone wants attention & to be loved.
Sun Enters Virgo-- August 23rd 8:08 am (Eastern time) with the Moon in Sag. Virgo the sign of the teacher ruled by discriminating, analytical Mercury. We are reminded to prepare for Fall.
Full Moon-- (with a Lunar Eclipse) on 6:35 am (Eastern time) on August 28th in Pisces. The Pisces moon will make everyone tend to feel emotional and vulnerable especially with Venus retro and the full moon intensity, and with the lunar eclipse there can be panic. Don't walk a mile to get your feelings hurt! With the Mars square the Moon there can be fights. Watch your temper!!

July 2007 (Scroll down for June 2007)

We just had an overview of the celestial pattern for the summer earlier in the newsletter so check out CELESTIAL TIDES. We begin the month of July with Mecury retrograde until the the late evening of the 9th. Use plenty of orange light to wash away the confusion during this period. Then to the 27th, all the inner planets are direct so go for it then, if you are going to go for it in July. Big news is that Venus goes retrograde late Freyaday night on the 27th for six weeks until mid day September 8th, so all of August is under this onerous aspect, which is my least favorite other than the combo of Venus and Mercury retro at the same time? and we have them in the same month. Again the thought of "get through it" and be aware of the directed times of July 10th to July 27th so you can get something done this summer. Highlights of the month include:
New Moon-- 8:04 AM Eastern Daylight Time in the morning on July 14th then goes Void of Course in Cancer.
July 16th-- Watch out for a fiery Monday with the Moon square Mars while the Moon is in the fiery sign of Leo. Expect drama but don't get caught up in it, and don't fight.
Sun Enters Leo-- July 23rd with the Moon in Scorpio.
July 27th-- Venus goes retro 1:27 PM (EDS time) so make a pact to be still be friends 6 weeks from now. Not a time to change jobs, friends, location, beliefs for six weeks as the tendency is for everyone to feel dis-satisfied about everything for six weeks? so don't let it get to you? just ride out the storm and know it is just a fading dream.
Full Moon-- in Aquarius at 8:48 pm EDS Time? June 29th watch out for the nuts, especially the sad emotional vulnerable ones? as Venus is retro and it challenges each one emotionally in a different way.

Well we are trying to accommodate some readers' requests for larger type and with all that is going on, we did not have room for the Astro Column where it usually belongs? and we also have some readers that want our Astro Column? so we are striving to be accommodating. We can never fit in all the interesting aspects so if you are planning something important and want a reference e-mail Sami
Best planting days: 15th & 16th with the Moon in Cancer but then use caution as Mercury goes retro on the 15th. Hint for June: Power out for the first two weeks and trim travel, purchases and events for the last half of the month.
June 1-- We're still riding high on the energy of the Blue Full Moon the day before in Sag? at 9:04 pm Eastern time so there is plenty of fun energy for good times and forward motion. Happy Friday!
June 2-- Watch out for restless excitable minds as the Moon opposes Mercury.
June 3-- And then the temper tantrum/wars aspect of the Moon square Mars? flip it for productivity.
June 4-- Mars trines Jupiter-- a day of high energy with incredible opportunities for good fortune. Don't let the heart break energies of the Moon opposing Venus later in the day bring you down.
June 14-- NEW MOON in Gemini? wait til the moon in Cancer the following day to plant your magick seed thoughts and start new projects.
June 15-- (drum roll please and trumpet fanfare) Mercury goes Retrograde at 7:40 pm EST. Don't panic, say less not more, and be patient in communications 'til July 9th, when it goes direct in the evening.
June 17-- Father's Day Sunday is a day of fiery volatile emotions with the Moon square Mars and with the moon in Leo, everyone will want to be the center of attention and will fight to get there.
June 21-- SUMMER SOLSTICE-- Sun enters Cancer at 2:07 pm EST. This is the high point of the solar year and a great opportunity for spiritual development? so be magickal and creative and win big!
June 24-- Caution is suggested, especially when the Moon enters Scorpio in the evening as Mars moves into Taurus and the Moon opposes Mars. Powerful energies can get out of hand with the potential for violence unless the energy is directed. Watch out for suspicious natures and intense moodiness and tempers out of control with stubbornness.
June 30-- FULL MOON in Capricorn at 9:49 EST-- We start and end the month with full moon energy. This does give us a great opportunity to tune into the potency of magick to power our lives. The full moon represents the high point of our watery nature-- sub conscious, emotional, and spiritual. The ancient earth people regarded the full moon as the pregnant mother, full with our thoughts, giving birth to the child of light? so feast with the Goddess and celebrate life.

May 2007 (Scroll down for April 2007)

Howdy and welcome back to our fun astro column. For this merry month of Spring we have more directed energy than at any other time until September as our Summer starts with Mercury retro for three+ weeks followed by Venus retro until early September. So the news is-- if you have something you want to get done? do it NOW! May Day, May 1st is one of the eight points of the wheel one of the eight grove festivals that were observed and celebrated by the ancient peoples who tuned into the seasons of the Earth, into the seasons of the Sun and Moon. So celebrate, dance to the music of the nature spirits and the stars and your merry spirit band. Dance and claim your good for the next cycle and for the next year. May is for play and for Magick? it is said those born in the month of May are natural magickians so if this is your Birth month, then claim and know all the natural magicks that you are and shine like a star! May 2nd brings the FULL MOON in Scorpio an intense and powerful time of re-generation, moving into the moon in Sag the next day, May 3rd, encouraging a friendlier vibration, so party! Hearty!
But I would take a lil care to calm it down a bit for Cinco de Mayo? there is Mars square the moon and Mercury square Saturn and a moon opposing Venus so all together it could mean fist fights, bad words with depression and hard heart ache? not the night to celebrate an anniversary or throw a party! Venus enters the wet sign of Cancer on May 8th? on Don Rickles Birthday. Get ready to have your fancy tickled for the rest of the month! As we cruise into Mother's Day, May 13th, use care as the Moon squares Venus (heartbreak) as Mars squares Pluto (explosive temper tantrums) moving into a Jupiter trine (good fortune) in the evening. Ride the Jupiter trine and the energies of Mars and Pluto to start your week strong and finish your lunar cycle strong as on May 16th the Moon is New and void of Course though it starts the day in Taurus and ends in Gemini. It can be a confusing day with the Moon Saturn square making you feel like life can be hard. The Moon opposed by Jupiter can make you financially foolish on the 17th and the aspect is strengthened by the Mercury opposing Jupiter on the 19th to make thoughts and words that can challenge your fortune so watch your p's and q's Armed Services Day, especially with the Moon square Mars promoting wars. On Monday the 21st the Sun enters Gemini so we began a cycle of mental activity and expect to experience both sides of your personality. Memorial weekend will start for some on Friday May 25th? watch out for excitable minds and explosive emotions with anger management needed with the Moon square Mercury, square Pluto and then opposing Mars! Memorial Day itself is somewhat nicer with the opportunity for deep communication with the Moon trine Mercury as Mercury moves into Cancer, and beware of the Moon in Scorpio, watch out for the sting and remember to forgive and forget. As we get to the end of the month we have a special treat a blue moon which is a 2nd FULL MOON in Sagittarius? so use this double whammy magick energy to good fortune and make this the best month this year. Use plenty of LIGHT; & know this is a month for Victory! After Victory? Take all the Mars action and use it to push things forward.

April 2007 (Scroll down for March 2007)

Well Mercury went direct March 7th but I am writing this article March 3rd and 4th? so please bear with me as I strive for clarity. We begin with All Fool's Day? one of feasting and merriment, and honoured by the Romans as an end to winter. Multiple holiday/holydays with Palm Sunday April first before the FULL MOON in Libra on April 2nd at 1:15 Eastern daylight time, followed by Passover on April 3rd.
Makes for kind-of-a-crazy beginning of the month with unconventional and possibly explosive situations on the first with a challenge to the heart with Venus square Saturn, but by the 3rd things will improve a day of good fortune, balance, and good energy. There is a lot of fire energy on Friday April 6th, a Good Friday. Watch the temper that day as Moon squares Mars. Flip the energy and have a productive energetic day rather than a fist fight or an accident! Easter Sunday April 8th is a reasonably social day with the moon in Sag and lots of trines and conjunctions that day. Watch the excessive talking that wears everybody out! Friday the 13th can be a good time to get your feelings hurt as the moon enters sensitive Pisces and the Moon squares Venus.
The NEW MOON is on April 17th? we hope you have your taxes filed as the new moon is always a time of new beginnings and starting over. With the moon moving into Taurus things mellow and it is a good time for enjoyment of the good life and pursuing financial stability. Sun entersTaurus 7:07 am Eastern time, a practical, conservative, yet materialistic earth sign.
Best planting days for your above ground crops and your thoughts are the 21st, the 22nd, when the waxing moon is in the fertile sign of Cancer. We also have the April Lyrids Meteors (21st) and Earth Day the 22nd a nice nice day with Moon trine Mars and Uranus. Watch the 23rd as Venus square Mars is a fight between perfect lovers, with Moon square Mercury giving restless excitable minds. Overall a terrifc month for forward progress. Use the Light to prevail!

March 2007 (Scroll down for February 2007)

OOPS, We begin the month with Mercury still retrograde but don't worry and don't panic it goes direct on March 7th at 11:45 pm Pacific Time USA. Do take extra care to use the ORANGE LIGHT of ILLUMINATION to promote Mental Clarity during this last week as sometimes the last few days of the Mercury retro swamp can seem almost unbearable? the LIGHT will help you get through? use the RAMA AGNI chant with it to "SWEEP AWAY THE CLOUDS OF MIND AND LEAVE CONFUSION FAR BEHIND!" Remember patience in communications, say less not more, and strive to be in your spiritual center as SPIRIT is TRANCENDENT over any and all astrological influences. The FULL MOON is in Virgo on March 03, and there is a LUNAR ECLIPSE the same night at the same time 6:17 pm Pacific Time. Lunar eclipses can be unsettling as our primeval selves are afraid the world is coming to an end? so stay centered in the LIGHT and KNOW everything is OK! On March 4th we ride the full moon energy with PURIM a Jewish holiday and festival of FREEDOM, celebrated with much fun and enthusiasm? catch your share of the day's JOY but be careful as the Moon squares Jupiter that day which can lead to extravagance, overindulgence, and financial foolishness.
And then March 7th aah, Mercury finally goes direct? it can never do it fast enough to suit me! On the 8th is International Women's Day and watch out as the moon is in the secretive sign of Scorpio and folks can be suspicious and moody. The Moon squares Mars that morning and this is a temper tantrum, fist fights and accident prone aspect but if you can get on the right channel there is a lot of power in the air if you can push it in the right direction. The 9th is a very square day with the Moon squaring Saturn, the Sun squaring Jupiter, the moon squaring Neptune and then Mercury? squares provide opportunities for growth though facing challenges. With the Moon still in Scorpio this may be a good day to punt the important projects to next week!
On the 10th the moon slips into Sag, and people feel more like partying than criticizing each other. So let's get friendly, let's get social on the 11th as DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME BEGINS. There are quite a few aspects all together on the 16th? and with the moon in Aquarius in can be a crazy unpredictable day but with the Moon sextiling Jupiter and then Jupiter trining Saturn there are a number of financial opportunities seeking you. The Moon opposes Saturn the same day and this can make you feel depressed or that life is just hard. Expect the unpredictable with multiple Pluto aspects with Mercury, Venus and the Moon while Mercury sextiles Venus and then is conjunct with the Moon while eclipsing. There may be some unusual love communications and some from the past. This exotic combo leads us into St. Partricks' Day on the 17th, as the moon enters Pisces, while sextiling Venus and then moves into Taurus. This makes me think it could be a great day to make love under the sun and set the new lunar cycle in motion in a dynamic fashion.
The NEW MOON is still in Pisces at 10:43 pm on the 18th and there is a SOLAR ECLIPSE at the same time? all of these eclipses (starting with a Saturn eclipse on March 1) can make for a disruptive unsettled month? don't let it get to you? that's what turning to SPIRIT is all about. And this new moon at the edge of Spring is a most powerful time to plant your seeds. The VERNAL EQUINOX is on March 20th as the SUN moves into ARIES at 8:08 pm! This was the beginning of the year for many ancient cultures and still is! With three trines that day there is good energy to begin again! With the Moon sextiling Mercury and then conjunct Venus there is good energy for the second day of Spring also, but watch out on the 22 when the Moon is in the bull headed sign of Taurus cuz there is another MARS SQUARE with a SATURN square and NEPTUNE square? and just make sure you don't hurt anybody or get too depressed! We end the month with a second Saturn eclipse and a waxing moon? use the new SPRING energy to get things rolling in a positive direction. Good planting days: 21, 22, 25 & 26. Venus and Saturn are visible in the night sky! Walk with LIGHT & Be fine! Celebrate LIFE and be ALL RIGHT!

February 2007 (Scroll down for January 2007)

Our month begins with the FULL MOON happening in the mid-evening (9:45 pm Pacific time) on February 1. With the moon in Leo folks are feeling dramatic and want attention. Sets the pace for a melodramatic Ground Hog Day, Feb. 2. A time of divination, the ancient ways are remembered by the masses as we tune into nature for a glimpse of the future. This is a Magick day, one of the eight points of the Great Wheel? Candlemass to some, or the Celtic Candle Festival-- the feast of the maiden, or Bridgid's feast of the returning light-- a transition time from winter to spring? a time of cleansing, internal, and external? body, mind, spirit.
The energy is riding high this day and expect good fortune coming your way with the moon trine Jupiter and also-- an almost two week opportunity for sensitive communication as Mercury moves in Pisces. Make the most of it as Mercury goes retrograde the 13th at 8:38 pm Pacific time-- until March 7th. Personally I will hustle the first two weeks of the month and before. With Mercury retro there tends to be communication breakdown and frustration? so I am going to get my work done early so I can relax. My plan to survive Mercury retro is ONLINE at www.ESPLab.com. The high lights are: 1) don't panic 2) say less 3) be patient? this especially applies to all communications. It is a time to stay the course. Don't let your frustration level get to the point that you quit your job or change your significant other or locale.
It's fun to celebrate Chinese New Year as we get to say, Happy New year again, or GUNG HO FAT CHOI Year 4705 of the Wild Boar. Chinese astrology is in cycles of twelve so if you will be 60 years old this year, you are a boar! Or 12, 24, 36, 48, and so on. My beautiful black Great Dane Lola is a "Wild Pig" and she will be twelve years old this year, on Halloween (Way to go LOLA, Al named her an ESP Lab mascot? just for fun you can see her Web site: www.DancingDanes.com) A year of good fortune, especially if you catch the boar and have him for a supper feast for your tribe. On the other hand the year has risks for if the boar gets to your garden before you get to him, well then, it is not feasting time! Set your new Chinese year with expectations of good fortune and feasting, but make sure all your protective boundaries are up!!! After all it is the winter season, and the light has only begun to return. Maintain your own sense of light and shine bright to help dispel the darkness. But most of all remember it is the time of dormancy, renewal, regeneration, and preparation for new growth. Spring is just around the corner? start to get ready. Chinese New Year begins with the New moon on February 18th. Moon in Pisces that morning would make it an especially fertile time, however Al would consider the Mercury retrograde period a ppor time to start new projects, unless essential. Plod through it. Use plenty of ORANGE LIGHT, and use it to have fun, be clear, be inspired!

January 2007 (Scroll down for December 2006)

Happy New year to all of us. May it be the best year yet! Watch out for the triple square new year's eve? with the moon squaring Neptune, Saturn, then Uranus? it's easy to be overly emotional, drink too much, and get depressed, and then get unconventional, while in the sensual and bull headed sign of Taurus. We're not trying to depress you, just get you prepared as this will lead to the temper tantrum aspect of the moon opposing Mars the next day, the first day of the year. Give your liver and head a break and don't over-indulge? instead meditate and let go of past losses, and get ready to receive new blessings!
Our beautiful moon is FULL January 3rd at 6:57 am Mountain time, in Cancer, However, with the moon void of course the rest of the day, expect the unexpected and don't push the river. On January 18, the New Moon is in Capricorn at 9:01 pm (Mountain time again) and there is a nice Venus sextile Neptune earlier that evening which brings a harmonious blend of Love and Intuition to start the lunar cycle. Let's note the winter cycle is a time of introspection, reflection, dormancy, and rest? Let's be in tune with the natural cycle and relax and rejuvenate. Coming Next month: Celebrate Chinese New Year 4705? and take a peek at your Chinese Astrology! and nowCelebrate new beginnings!

The full moon is in Geminii on December 5th at 5:25 pm Pacific Time. The new moon is void of course in Sag at 6:01 PT on December 20th, and then moves into Capricorn. The LIGHT returns and the new solar year begins on December 21, 2006 as the sun enters Capricorn at 4:23 PM PT. As the light decreases before the winter solstice it is the darkest time of the year. Hang bright lights and wear bright colors and chase the darkness away. Use the new solar year to begin again. Have fun & win big and often. LET THE LIGHT PREVAIL! For those of you who would like to learn more about astrological influences, buy Jim Maynard's CELESTIAL GUIDE! It has daily astro influences and how to interpret them. Sami
A GREAT WAY TO START THE YEAR!

November 2006 (Scroll down for October 2006)

November 1st is a Grand Sabbat a time for enjoyment and renewal. Halloween night (October 31st) we have the waxing moon in the sensitive sign of Pisces, with the moon trine Mars, the Sun and Venus? expect plenty of good energy, with love, and fertility. The day of the first is a little tricky with a Uranus /Moon eclipse. Watch out for Mercury squaring Saturn as it could turn into a time of depressing communications? potentially volatile with the moon square Pluto bringing explosive emotions and the moon in Pisces making folks feel vulnerable and insecure.
The full moon is in the bull headed sign of Taurus at 4:58 am Pacific time on November 5, 2006. With Mercury retro, and the moon opposing Venus and Mercury, then squaring Saturn, we have strong energy emphasizing heart break, communication break down with restless excitable minds, followed by depression and the feeling life is hard. I will tend to be in seclusion, introspection and personal meditation this day, and will limit my contact with others.
Other High Lights-- November 7th Election day will have the moon in Gemini with Mercury conjunct Venus? you are thinking about what you love. November 11th is Veterans day?which can be dramatic with the Moon in Leo. Watch excitable minds with the Moon square Mercury and then the Moon square aggressive Mars both in the evening. New Moon is in Scorpio at 2:18 pm Pacific time November 2oth? fertile beginnings with the Moon conjunct Jupiter. November 22 the Sun enters friendly Sagisttarius. And Thanksgiving Day Jupiter moves into Sag. So let the good times roll. Have fun & win big!

October 2006 (Scroll down for September 2006)

October is the time of our Harvest Full Moon, this year occurring on October 6th, in Aries at 8:13 pm Pacific time. Many of the old people, the earth people celebrate this as true Halloween. It is time to harvest the best of the garden of our lives, discard the chaff, and prepare for the new cycle (Spring). Join with us in our Cozmic Conference call in celebration. This harvest also is a preparation for the winter cycle? when the earth rests. It is a reminder of the cycles of the seasons of our souls-- and our material bodies which need to have supplies, especially as we reach the twilight time of our earthly existence.
October begins with an increasing moon, moving into Yom Kippur on October 2-- Hebrew for day of atonement, and in Judaism, a most sacred holy day. It is a day of fasting and prayer for forgiveness for sins committed during the year. Forgiveness is healthy for you, no matter what religion you practice? so let's join with our Jewish brothers and sisters and let go and forgive. The day has a nice Venus trine the moon which is a good loving harmony. Watch out for the v/c (void of course moon) on most of Columbus day, the 9th, as actions taken produce unexpected results? with the Moon opposing Jupiter it can be a day of extravagance and financial foolishness, and the Moon squaring Saturn can make you feel depressed so don't go shopping this day!
Use caution on the 7th, 13th, 29th, as we have either a Moon square Mars or opposing Mars. There is lots of energy, but also the tendency to experience rage, accidents, fist fights, and wars? instead use the energy to consciously get something done. The New Moon is in Libra on October 21, 2006 10:14pm Pacific time. Let's leave behind all negative conditions and situations and set in motion our brightest thoughts and emotions for a healthy, whole, successful lunar cycle. October 22 has the Moon in Scorpio with a Mercury sextiling Jupiter. This could be a good time to launch a communication that brings good fortune. The Sun enters Scorpio the following day on the 23rd. Big bad Mercury goes retrograde on the 28th. Take care of priority projects early so that you can coast as much as possible from the 28th until November 17th. It helps me flip this energy by trimming all the extra projects, being patient in communications, and focusing on better aspects of Mercury retro like seeing old friends, planning, cleaning out closets and working on stalled projects. ESPecially strive to stay in your spiritual center during the Mercury retrograde. You can find more on Mercury retro on our Web site: www.ESPLab.com.

This is a terrific month to get things done. Use your Power Star and turn to the Power of the LIGHT and Spirit Guidance and help to make this a month of super accomplishments?My favorite planting days for your crops and thoughts are: 4, 5, 9, 21, 22, 23, 24, & 31. Blessed be, Sami (Carol is taking a break from this & she will return soon with more good words.)

September 2006 (Scroll down for August 2006)

We start the month of September with only Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in the retro mode, and Pluto goes direct on Labor Day. This is an all-systems-go month.
Here are some highlights:
Moon in Sag on Friday night Sept. 1, brings a party vibe, especially with the Moon trine Venus. Love and fun. This is a good start to the long Labor day weekend. Early Saturday morning will bring Mars square the Moon, so "flip the energy" by promising yourself to be nice and avoid road rage and hurting anyone. Sunday the 3rd should mellow somewhat as Mercury trines the Moon and sextiles Jupiter as the Moon sextiles Jupiter too. Could be some good communication that offers a fortunate opportunity. Claim your good now! On Labor Day-- the 4th-- Mars trines the Moon early in the day, giving vitality for the trip home, but watch out for the delays between 7:24 am and 11:15 am PT as the moon is void of course so naturally expect the unexpected.
Some times of importance:
LABOR DAY ? Sept 4th with the Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius in the second quarter. FULL MOON-- is on September 7 in Pisces, with a LUNAR ECLIPSE. Folks will be extra sensitive and emotional. NEW MOON: September 22nd in Virgo/Libra ? with a SOLAR ECLIPSE-- the Sun moves into Libra the same day, 9:04 pm Pacific Time is the Autumnal Equinox-- Be sure and Celebrate the traditional PaganThanksgiving. Feast & enjoy LIFE! Eclipses make the primal person within afraid that their world is ending. Be brave and know the LIGHT springs ETERNAL! ROSH HASHANAH (beginning of Jewish New Year)? Sept 23rd with the Moon in Libra in the 1st Quarter. RAMADAN (a time of fasting for traditional Islam) begins ? SEP 24TH-- with the moon in Libra/Scorpio.
Best days for planting ideas, projects and garden could be: September 6, 7, 8, 14,15, 16, 17, 24, 25, 26, & 27. A great month for the beginning of harvest times and starting again. Use your POWER STAR & personal angels to help you be the Victory. Blessed be, Carol & Sami

August 2006 (Scroll down for July 2006)

We begin the month of August with only the very outermost planets of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in the retrograde mode. We can really consider this an all systems go month. Let's enjoy it to the fullest.
Sure there will be challenges, but let's reprogram and "flip" more difficult alignments of the planets ? we simply move them into their most positive positions that benefit all. How's that for a novel concept? It's like the Gnostic Magick attitude of re-programming negative energy into your new good fortune. Cozmic Carol sez that the best planting and project launching days look to be August 6, 8, 16, 17, 19, 23, 24, and 26. You can find her astro comments with key words for each day of August on www.esplab.com.
The Moon is increasing as it moves into the intense sign of Scorpio to start the month on August 1, while it sextiles Mars, bringing a nervous excitement. Folks can be friendly on August 4th with the Moon in the party sign of Sagitarius-- but watch the Moon square Mars and Uranus that day. It is a day of freedom seeking and one can get upset, especially if that freedom is obstructed which it naturally could be. The Full Moon in Uranus on August 9th (see conference call info in doin's) can lead to zany behaviour, especially with the Moon squaring Jupiter the night before, encouraging financial foolishness, and extravagance with food and drink.
Mercury enters the sign of Leo on August 10th... beginning a new period of dramatic communications. Be careful to contain the drama that day, as the Moon is in the sensitive sign of Pisces (when folks can walk a mile to get their feelings hurt) as the Moon opposes Mars (which can lead to temper tantrums and fist fights). If you flip this energy, there will be a lot of opportunity for good energy, especially with the good fortune aspect of the Moon trine Jupiter. On August 10th Venus joins Mercury in the sign of Leo so there is the opportunity for outstanding communications in love... especially that Satyrday as Venus trines the Moon and Mercury trines the Moon which is in the initiating fire sign of Aries. Mars opposes the Moon again on the 17th... flip it for good energy or experience it for road rage and greater potential for accidents.
The Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd, before the new moon in Virgo on August 23 (see conference call info in doin's). This is a great opportunity to clean up your house and life and start with fresh attitude. Watch your temper on the 29th when Mars opposes Pluto with the moon in Scorpio... forgive, forget, and don't hurt anyone! Overall this has the potential of being a very good month so do use the power star on our front page and ask for lots of help from your TexLab Spirits and let's make this a month of super fun progress for us all.
Blessed be we, Carol & Sami

Mini thoughts for each astrological sign:
Aries: Feeling the need for some attention? A steamy love affair may come your way. Midmonth, you don?t see people as they are, but as you wish them to be. Listening will give youclues to real personalities and motives.
Rewarding days: 12, 13
Challenging days: 26, 27, 28
Taurus: Early in the month, someone reaches that sensuous, sexy side you try to keep hidden but can?t, and you get swept off your down-to-earth feet. Even a Taurus can move too quickly. Take time to evaluate.
Rewarding days: 14, 15
Challenging days: 1, 2, 3, 29, 30
Gemini: You?re in a practical mode, but your responses are quicker midmonth, when you feel rushed to rearrange your life. You could be moving and not everyone is happy about it.
Rewarding days: 16, 17, 18
Challenging days: 4, 5, 31
Cancer: People are mysterious. You?ll find them hard to communicate with, and you have to work to get to know them. The situation improves midmonth.
Rewarding days: 19, 20
Challenging days: 6, 7, 8
Leo: You may be traveling for work, or getting behind on ordinary tasks. Keep people apprised if you can?t follow through on promises. You are more organized, perhaps in a leadership role, starting midmonth.
Rewarding days: 21, 22, 23
Challenging days: 8,9
Virgo: You are motivated to break with the past if something isn?t working. Potential mates have unvoiced desires but they are sending plenty of body language. Say ?No? if you don?t want the same things, too.
Rewarding days: 24, 25
Challenging days: 10, 11
Libra: When you?re ready for change, the answers come; problems solve themselves through your intuition and understanding. Compromise and forgiveness are important midmonth.
Rewarding days: 26, 27, 28
Challenging days: 12, 13
Scorpio: The timing is right for you to ask mentors for favors. Chronic delays make it seem odds are against you unless you are adaptable. Don?t be afraid to redo things.
Rewarding days: 1, 2,3, 29, 30
Challenging days: 14, 15, 16
Sagittarius: You need a Plan B early in the month, but by midmonth you?re one-up on everyone because you?re practical, intuit trends, and get concrete results. You can apply this approach to making money, too.
Rewarding days: 4, 5, 31
Challenging days: 16, 17, 18
Capricorn: Accumulate possessions, status, and security, but postpone a long vacation. Midmonth, people meet you halfway, which is good if you have to redo things.
Rewarding days: 6, 7, 8
Challenging days: 19, 20
Aquarius: You can solve problems by playing your hunches. Then, in a 180-degree turn, you have to redo some things. Rely on tried-and-true techniques midmonth, not innovations.
Rewarding days: 8, 9
Challenging days: 21, 22, 23
Pisces: An intense union can take you to the heights of sensitivity. Midmonth, your knees tremble at the thought of taking your relationship to the next level?you need to say so.
Rewarding days: 10, 11
Challenging days: 24, 25

July 2006 (Scroll down for June 2006)

This month begins with a bunch of retrogrades: Jupiter , Pluto , Neptune & Uranus retro. Who really cares that much as these are the outer planets... but then (small drumroll please):
Mercury goes retrograde on July 4th to the 28th. Happy Holiday!? Carol would have us flip the energy! Good luck! Sami is crazy enough to give it a try and... Let's use the time to trim non-essentials from your schedule, as you focus on your spiritual center and have patience with all communications as you slip into a plod through it mode. Check out Al's commentary in the editorial section and Sami's survival plan in the self help program.
The moon is Void of Course on the following days: July 4, 6, 11, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, 24, 26, 29, 31. Caution is suggested during void of course moons as actions taken can produce unexpected results. Best planting days are: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,10, 30, & 31. However, Al would urge caution in planting during a Mercury retro, due to the confusion factor.
Some potentially challenging days needing extra light are: July 5th-- first full day of Mercury retro, with multiple squares and a Mars opposition to Neptune, and July 6th-- Moon square Mars can = fist fights and temper tantrums especially with the Moon in Scorpio... remember to forgive and forget. There is a lot of energy available if you can handle it right.
June 9th has Venus trine Neptune... a time of loving intuition and our cozmic coffee clutch... tune in via phone or the astral (more info in CLASS NOTES), followed by the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 10th. With the Moon sextile Jupiter, this could be a time of good fortune, and Mercury moving into Cancer that day can inspire a loving communication cycle. Let's celebrate our winnings big time!
On June 12th the moon is opposed by Saturn, which can promote depression and the feeling that life is hard. Keep your chin up baby, but avoid the aggressive energy of the Moon opposing Mars, the next day. Rather focus on the Moon trine Venus and make love not war. A similar pattern happens with Moon square Saturn on July 18th followed by the Moon square Mars on July 19th. Try not to be to bull headed about your depression and anger on those two days while the Moon is in Taurus.
There is a nice Moon trine Jupiter on the 23rd, with the Moon in Cancer... right before the New Moon in Leo following on July 25th (East Coast time-- July 24th West Coast time). The new moon is a time of letting go and starting again. New moon in Leo can be entertaining and then Mercury brings us joy and forward motion as it goes direct on the 28th.
Remember, on the days that give us energies we'd prefer to change, just consciously flip the energy. Sort of like flipping a coin. Expect the best and with our TexLab Spirit band, you know we'll be just fine. All in all... a great month for being alive with plenty of opportunity to spread the light... In spite of the Mercury retro!
Cozmic Carol and Swami Sami

June 2006 (Scroll down for May 2006)

June is a month of many challenges but we ESP Lab members have the tools with Spiritual Science and our Lab Spirit Helpers to fix whatever needs fixing. We don?t have retrogrades (except for some of the outer planets) however there are a number of planets "talking" a lot to each other. We begin the month on the 1st with Mercury in opposition to Pluto and the Moon squaring Jupiter. It?s a pretty powerful situation. Use plenty of light to start the month right!
Venus will sextile Uranus June 10th, and this looks like an unconventional love affair. On the 11th there?s a FULL MOON in Sagittarius. PARTY TIME! I can hear Al saying, ?I?ll drink to that.? So have fun! The 14th is FLAG DAY. Watch your pocket book then as we will all tend to eat too much, drink too much and spend too much with the Moon square Jupiter. Watch your temper too that day with the Moon opposing first Mars then Saturn. The 18th ushers in FATHER?S DAY. The love can flow with the Moon sextile Venus, but watch out for explosive emotions with the Moon squaring Pluto. On the 21st we have the Moon in Taurus and the Sun entering Cancer to begin the SUMMER SOLSTICE. This is the longest day of the year.
For you witches out there, this is a time to venture out into the forest or garden and cut wood for the making of wands. Sai Baba, the Hindu Master, indicates this is the day of the year that has the maximum opportunity for spiritual growth. And it doesn't look like an easy day to us with the Moon first squaring Saturn and then squaring Mars... while the Moon is in the sometimes stubborn sign of the Bull, Taurus. Looks like it could be a time of sad, emotional bull fights.
Of course, all we need to do is simply flip the energy and use it for good! In one hand hold the negative energy and in the other hold the positive side of the energy. Now bring both hands together and feel the energies merging, changing and flipping into positive energy. Use this technique and WIN. Now we come to the New Moon in Cancer on the 25th. Use this fertile time to leave behind the past that holds you back as you plants your seeds of growth, love, and abundance for the new lunar cycle.
Love and Light,
Carol & Sami

May 2006 (Scroll down for April 2006)

The merry month of May begins with only Jupiter and Pluto in the retrograde mode. They are joined by Neptune on the 23rd... the outer planets however, have less influence so this is really no problem. All systems go, all month long! Take time for rest and relaxation, too.
Some good planting days for ideas, projects and your seedlings for your garden could be: May 2,12,20,29,& 30 when the moon is in water signs.
May Day on the first... can be a little dis-jointed and emotionally challenging with first Pluto opposing the moon and then Venus squaring the moon. Take care to balance your emotions, especially with the moon in Cancer. But remember to fly high on the energy of this holiday anyway.
Cinco de mayo on the fifth... Mercury moves into Taurus bringing festive conversations while celebrating spring renewals. EEEhaa! With the moon in Leo, everyone wants to be in the center of the stage or at least, treated like a star.
May 7th could be a good money day, with first Mars trining Jupiter and then the moon sextiling Jupiter and Mars. The opportunity is enhanced with the Moon trine the Sun and Venus trine Saturn. Mercury squares Saturn towards the end of the day, so be extra careful that your confused brain and tongue doesn't get you into trouble at the last minute.
Full moon a week later 11:51 pm in the evening of the 12th for the California folks. Tune into the Wesach Full Moon-- see class notes!
The full moon is in Scorpio... a good time to cut your hair. Remember to forgive and forget especially since people will tend to be moody and impulsive. Use plenty Orange Light of RA to power your way through this one. AUM!
We're still riding high from the energy of the full moon as we reach Mother's day, May 14. With the moon in Sag people will want to party, and be friendly, but more on a superficial basis. Mid afternoon there is a moon trine Venus which is a good time to express your love. But go home before it gets too late as Mercury squares Neptune... making it harder to feel your emotions or think clearly.
The Sun enters Gemini in the last quarter of the moon (20th), so get ready for more talking and mental action. With the moon in Pisces folks can walk a mile to get their feelings hurt.
Watch out for Venus square Mars and the Moon square Mars both on the same day... May 23rd with the moon in fiery Aries! The perfect lovers Venus and Mars are fighting and it could get emotional! Use the energy!
New Moon 10:26 pm PST on the 26th... watch out for unconventional communications that are challenging... make sure you get the new moon started right, with good thoughts, good emotions, and good actions.
Memorial Day Weekend should be kinda nice... especially Memorial Day itself-- May 29th. On that day Venus moves into Taurus which is good for lovemaking and beautiful sensous experiences. ESPecially with the moon in Cancer... good emotions for all and with the moon trining Jupiter in the afternoon it gives you a nice financial opportunity in the middle of all this fun! Use the energy in the Merry Magickal Month of May to win again and again! Let us hear of your success!

April 2006 (Scroll down for March 2006)

Our month begins with Jupiter & Pluto in the retrograde mode. Saturn goes direct on the 5th, so for all practical purposes we can consider APRIL an all systems go month. There may be a few of the ?re?s? to do though. (Re-schedule, re-write, re-pair, you get the picture.)
Best planting & project launching days look to be the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 19th, 20th, 23rd, 24th, 27th, & 28th.
On the 2nd VENUS trines PLUTO... lots of aspects. The 4th MERCURY trines JUPITER... rewarding, Enjoy. On the 8th with MARS opposition to PLUTO you may have a strong need to assert your opinions. The 10th has VENUS quincunx SATURN This is where those opinions could upset your romantic harmony. We have a Full Moon on the 13th, with MERCURY square PLUTO -- watch out for minor mistakes and overspending. The 18th has VENUS conjunct URANUS which could bring a new love interest, and with MERCURY square MARS, communications could be touchy or challenging. The 19th MERCURY trines SATURN -- a good time to make realistic decisions. On the 20th MERCURY trines JUPITER -- a rewarding day... Enjoy. The 26th has MERCURY quincunx JUPITER. Watch out: those exaggerated ideas could cloud your judgement. The 29th MERCURY sextiles NEPTUNE. Listen to your intuitive awareness. The 30th has VENUS square PLUTO, so be careful not to judge others too harshly. With that, looks like a very good month -- lets make the most of it!

March 2006 (Scroll down for February 2006)

Best planting & project launching days look to be the 4th & 5th, with the 8th, 9th & 10th good, & the 31st OK as well. The 4th brings a mercury square PLUTO - watch tempers!

The 16th brings a JUPITER square to NEPTUNE - beware of delusions! The 18th holds a MERCURY square MARS - not one of our nicer days. The 25th brings VENUS square JUPITER and MARS trine NEPTUNE.

The New Moon of the 13th comes along with a Mercury square to Saturn. Learn the lessons quickly so we can get back to the fun & games. Mars trines Neptune on the 15th bringing energy to manifest some of your latent dreams. On the 17th Mercury trines Uranus bringing energy to manifest lots of good things for you. The 20th brings a square of Venus & Pluto - watch tempers that day, try to harness the energy for positive things. Mercury squares Neptune on the 23rd bringing perhaps a bit of confusion about your immediate goals - don't let it throw you.
On the 26th Venus sextiles Saturn bringing very nice energy to enhance the Full Moon of the 27th Mars sextile Pluto that day should help, too.
Overall it's an almost completely all systems go month. Do use the power star on our front page and ask for lots of help from your TexLab Spirits and let's make this a month of super progress for us all.

September 2004 (Scroll down for August 2004)

We begin with Uranus, Neptune and Mercury in the retrograde mode. Uranus and Neptune will stay that way all month and happily Mercury turns direct on the 2nd. We can just about consider it an all systems go month after the 2nd. Let's for sure go for great progress in all areas of our lives.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 16th 17th 18th & 19th with the 24th 25th 26th & 27th OK and the 8th 9th & 10th if you're in a hurry.
On the 2nd Venus sextiles Jupiter to help us enjoy Mercury's return to the direct mode. The 6th is Labor Day - I always celebrate it by working, but you enjoy it your way. Mars squares Pluto on the 10th - It's a short but very sharp aspect - watch out for everybody's temper. The 13th brings a Mercury opposition to Uranus - lots of energy in this one, harness it well and go happily forward.
We get a pretty New Moon on the 14th but I'd wait 'till the 16th to put it to work. I seldom pay attention to Sun aspects, but the 15th sees it conjuncting Mars adding plenty of energy but not all that easy to control. Harness it for a big push the next day. On the 18th Venus opposes Neptune while Mars sextiles Saturn. Beware of delusions but they should be mitigated by the Mars/Saturn aspect. On the 22nd Mercury squares Pluto - not as nasty as when Mars does it, but be careful of raw tempers anyway. Venus' trine to Pluto on the 24th should help calm everybody back down. As will Mercury's sextile to Saturn on the 26th.
The Full Moon of the 28th is enhanced by a conjunction of Mercury & Jupiter. May bring a few more nuts out of the woodwork than usual, but when Jupiter and Mercury get together there can be a lot if good ideas for financial and material progress. Next day (29th) Mercury conjuncts Mars - time to harness the energy positively while looking out for temper (yours or others.).
Overall I'd call this a nicely positive month with lots of opportunities for significant progress. Do touch the power spot on our front page often, call on your and your TexLab Spirits for help and fun companionship and let's make this a month of super progress.

August 2004 (Scroll down for July 2004)

We begin with Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in the retrograde mode and they will stay that way all month (except that Pluto turns direct on the 30th) and not bother much of anything anyway. But they are joined by Mercury on the 9th and He'll stay that way until September 2nd. I sorta suggest the plod mode from the 9th on.
Best planting and project launching days look like 3rd & 4th then under the Mercury retrograde pallor, the 22nd & 23rd with the 28th & 29th reasonablely OK, too. September will look a lot better for this sort of thing.
We're operating under the Full Moon of July 31st. Watch tempers on the 1st as Mercury Opposes Uranus. There's lots of power there, just harness it positively. Jupiter squares Pluto on the 6th - could bring a special opportunity or a big flop - be careful. Venus trines Uranus on the 13th bringing lots of energy for furthering all your projects - use it well.
The New Moon of the 15th is enhanced by Mercury sextile Venus - could soften the otherwise harsh energy from the retrograde. The 17th sees Jupiter sextiling Saturn - nice positive energy for advancing your projects. The 18th gets busy indeed - Mars opposes Uranus, Mercury conjuncts Mars and also opposes Uranus. Way too much energy to handle off handedly - I suggest a very low profile that day. Try applying the energy the next morning.
The Full Moon of the 29th will of course bring out a few more nuts than usual but you can handle it OK We end the month with Venus conjunct Saturn on the 31st it's a time to reconcile your value system with Saturn's strict discipline. A good way to start September.
Overall I'd call it a challenging month colored by the retrograde Mercury but with plenty of opportunity for positive progress. Do use the power star on our front page and call on your TexLab Spirits for lots of help and let's make this a positive, fun month anyway. And so it IS.

July 2004 (Scroll down for June 2004)

July starts off with Uranus, Neptune & Pluto retrograde and they stay that way all month. The outer planets don't bother things very much - let's consider it an almost all systems go month.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 17th, 24th, 25th, 26th & 27th with the 6th & 7th passing fair as well.
We get 2 Full Moons this month, the 2nd and 31st. Plenty of projects to bring into fruition right along. There seem to be no significant aspects until the 10th when Mercury conjuncts Mars. Lots of energy that day but watch that it doesn't deteriorate into temper and/or shouting matches. Mercury sextiles Venus the next day bringing soft friendly energy to patch up any messes left over from the 10th. Mercury opposes Neptune on the 13th - beware of hair brained schemes masquerading as inspiration that day. The day before the New Moon is a bit wild but quite positive. Venus sextiles Mars, Mars opposes Neptune and Venus trines Neptune - lots of energy to be used wisely in preparation for the New Moon.
The 17th brings a happy New Moon with Mercury trine Pluto. Pluto aspects are short but they're sharp - be alert to take advantage of the energy. Venus squares Jupiter on the 20th bringing conflicting feelings about money and the future. Just ride it out and don't let it get you to do something rash. The 25th gets a bit active with Mars trine Pluto and Venus opposing Pluto. Let's call it fun & games but not all that significant. The 27th brings a Venus sextile Mars - I call that a nice soft vibration with lots of clout. Use it to get ahead wonderfully. Then use the Full Moon of the 31st to bring any lagging projects to fruition.
Don't know quite how to express it, but this feels like a fun month full of opportunity for real progress. Sure there are a few bumps in the road - they serve to keep us on our toes. Let's enjoy the whole thing together, be sure to use the power star on our front page and call on your TexLab Spirits for plenty of help along the way and let's make July a magnificent month for us all.

June 2004 (Scroll down for May 2004)

We start the month with Venus, Neptune and Pluto in the retrograde mode. They will be joined by Uranus on the 10th. Then happily Venus will turn direct on the 29th taking a lot of pressure off our value systems. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto will remain retrograde to finish the month.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 1st & 2nd the 18th 19th & 20th and the 28th & 29th with Venus finally going direct that day the 29th is probably the best of the lot.
Venus opposes Pluto on the 2nd adding a bit of confusion to the Full Moon of the 3rd. Handle it all the way to the 8th when Mercury squares Uranus - a very good day to watch yours and everybody's tempers. The 10th brings a Mercury square Jupiter - beware of hair brained schemes and such. At last things begin to look a little better on the 12th with Venus trining Neptune while Mercury conjuncts Venus and trines Neptune as well. All are nicely positive aspects, use the good energies to sort of dig out of the doldrums. Mercury opposes Pluto on the 15th there could be sharp but short temper outbursts along with a bit of clumsiness that day.
The New Moon of the 17th feels pretty peaceful as it enters the very fertile sign of cancer, but the Venus square to Jupiter on the 19th needs to be carefully taken into account before you decide on any major financial transactions. Mercury trines Uranus on the 22nd bringing lots of positive energy to use wisely. Then He (Mercury) sextiles Jupiter on the 25th - perhaps a nice windfall or at least a fresh new idea. Then Mercury conjuncts Saturn on the 26th, reinforcing your brightness of yesterday - let's make it work well for getting ahead. No wonder Mercury has been so active - it's His month.
The month pretty well starts out in a downer mode but it gets better and better as it flows along. And when Venus finally turns direct you should feel like a big weight has been lifted from your shoulders so you can make next month even better. Let's remember to use the Ishtar Star on the front page as our point of contact with the positive energies and our TexLab Spirits. Let's make it a month of good progress in spite of the slow start.

May 2004 (Scroll down for April 2004)

Nice beginning - only Jupiter and Pluto are in retrograde and Jupiter goes direct on the 4th. Very smooth sailing, but Venus & Neptune both go retrograde on the 17th. The Venus thing is almost as hard to handle as Mercury - much challenge to your value system, but we can handle it.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 3rd 4th & 5th, the 18th 19th 22nd 23rd & 24th with the 30th & 31st OK too.
The 1st brings a sextile of Jupiter and Saturn - very nice energy for anything you want to go after. On the 2nd Venus opposes Pluto - a quick sharp aspect with the potential of temper tantrums. Don't let it get you. The Full Moon of the 4th is enhanced by a Mercury trine to Pluto - nice energy for completing projects and bringing them to fruition. This takes us clear to the 10th when Mercury sextiles Venus - nice soft but creative energy - enjoy. The 17th brings a Mars trine Uranus - much very strong and positive energy, you should be able to accomplish anything you set your mind to this day.
There's a friendly New Moon on the 19th, good for launching new projects and making new friends. On the 21st Mercury sextiles Uranus - nice creative energy, use it well. The 23rd brings a trine of Mercury to Jupiter - your financial dreams can get a big lift from this one. The 25th brings a bit of a mixed bag - Mars conjuncts Saturn while Mercury sextiles both Saturn and Mars. Just harness it all wisely and move nicely ahead. Watch out for delusions on the 27th when Mercury squares Neptune. Who knows what hair brained schemes might come out of it.
Overall it feels like a fun month with lots of opportunity for progress. Just don't let the retrograde Venus get on your value system too much. Do use the power star on the front page to call on your TexLab Spirits for extra help, keep your Light bright and let's make May a month of super progress.

April 2004 (Scroll down for March 2004)

Nice beginning - only Jupiter and Pluto are in retrograde but Mercury joins then on the 6th and stays that way until the 30th. So it looks like a plod month from the 6th to the 30th.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 6th 7th & 8th (but you're bucking retrograde Mercury). The 20th & 21st, the 25th & 26th but they're all still against a retrograde Mercury. Next month is bound to look better.
The Full Moon of the 5th ushers in the retrograde Mercury - it's a good time to remember my pappy's comment - OK, but it's retrograde on both sides of the line of scrimmage. Or the reluctant dragon - they call me a timid dragon, what rot, I'm not, whoops I'm reluctant. Plod is OK, but don't overdo it. Mars square Jupiter on the 7th brings impulses for wild spending and such. Keep it under control. The Venus square Uranus on the 10th brings lots of strong energy but be sure to focus it positively. The 14th could be a nicely uplifting day with Mars trining Neptune. But the Venus square to Jupiter the next day requires a great deal of concentration to avoid making a big mess.
We get a nice new Moon on the 19th giving us a pretty good fresh start. Venus trine Neptune on the 22nd brings nice inspiration, sexy & otherwise. Watch tempers on the 25th when Mars opposes Pluto. But the next day Mercury sextiles Mars and trines Pluto - should calm things down quite well. Then Mercury turns direct on the 30th unsticking lots of things.
Overall it looks like a plod mode month but we can still get ahead very well. Be sure to use the power star on our front page and call on the TexLab Spirits for lots of help and let's make this a positive month of excellent progress for us all.

March 2004 (Scroll down for February 2004)

Nice beginning - only Saturn and Jupiter are in retrograde and Saturn turns direct on the 7th. So we go with only Jupiter retrograde until the 24th when Pluto joins him. Looks good enough to treat it mostly like an all systems go time.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 1st 2nd & 3rd, the 24th & 25th, the 29th & 30th with the 10th & 11th passing fair, too.
Beware of grandiose schemes on the 3rd when Mercury opposes Jupiter. The Full Moon of the 6th is in a very barren sign, not much promise for that day. Mercury's sextile to Mars on the 7th should produce some pretty positive energy - use it wisely. The 8th brings a Mercury square to Pluto and a Venus sextile Uranus. I'd say let Mercury and Pluto fight it out while you latch on to the positive Venus energy. On the 11th Venus sextiles Saturn bringing more positive energy to be used very wisely under Saturn's disciplined direction. There's a bump in the road on the 15th when Mercury Squares Saturn. Watch out for muddled thinking that day. The 16th brings a Venus trine to Jupiter which should help everything a lot. But be careful of delusions on the 18th when Venus squares Neptune.
The 20th brings us a New Moon in a fertile sign along with the spring equinox. That seems to keep us busy until the 24th when Mercury trines Pluto. A friendly enough aspect - enjoy. Mars squares Uranus on the 28th - watch out for your and everybody's temper that day, but if you control the energy it can bring you a big boost ahead.
Overall I'd call this a fun month with plenty of room for progress. Do use the power spot on the front page and ask your TexLab Spirits for extra help for progress. And happy springtime.

February 2004 (Scroll down for January 2004)

Nice beginning - only Saturn and Jupiter are in retrograde and will stay that way all month. Let's treat it mostly like an all systems go time.
Best planting and project launching days appear to be the 3rd & 4th, the 21st & 22nd, the 25th & 26th, and possibly the 12th & 13th.
Venus squares Pluto on the 1st could be a bit of a staccato, feisty day. The Full Moon of the 6th is enhanced by a Venus sextile Uranus - could be a very spicy, sexy day. Enjoy it with care. On the 9th Mercury squares Mars - watch your and everybody else's temper, but well used this energy can bring much progress. Mars sextiles Saturn on the 13th bringing a slightly weird conciliatory energy, harness it for real progress. But the 14th brings A Venus square to Saturn, they may mean to teach you a few new lessons. On the 15th Mercury conjuncts Neptune and could bring some nicely fresh inspiration.
This brings us all the way to the New Moon of the 20th which is enhanced by a Venus sextile Neptune and Mercury sextile Pluto. All sorts of fresh start type energy to enjoy and apply. The 24th brings a square of Mars to Neptune which can lead to misguided temper tantrums or some such. Proceed with caution. The Mars trine Jupiter on the 26th should help straighten things out quite nicely. Nice day on the 27th with Mercury conjuncting Uranus while Venus trines Pluto. Much positive energy to wallow in and apply. The Mercury trine Saturn the next day (28th) will add many more positive vibes to everything. Then Happy Leap Day!
Overall I'd call this a very positive month for progress - a few little bumps, but mostly very positive energies. Let's remember to use our contact with the Lab Spirits through the power spot on the front page, use lots of extra Light and make this a month of super progress for us all.

January 2004 (Scroll down for December 2003)

The month starts with Saturn and Mercury in the retrograde mode. They are joined by Jupiter on the 3rd, but happily Mercury turns direct on the 6th, leaving us with only the 2 outer planets retrograde. We should be used to that and handle it neatly.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 7th & 8th with the 20th & 21st OK & the 24th & 25th probably the best.
Watch your temper and curb your sex drive on the 1st when Mars squares Saturn. Mistakes could be very costly. Mars sextiles Neptune on the 5th - could bring interesting sexy ideas at least. Venus sextiles Pluto on the 6th - could bring the opportunity you were looking for yesterday. Could make for a pretty sexy Full Moon on the 7th.
The 15th brings a Mercury sextile to both Uranus & Venus while Venus conjuncts Uranus. Could be a wild, fun day - enjoy! Mars trines Pluto on the 20th leading to a New Moon on the 21st enhanced by a Venus trine Saturn while Mercury opposed Saturn. I'd say go for it and win! No matter what it is. Come the 29th Venus opposes Jupiter while Mercury trines Him. This is another go for it day, let the devil take the hindmost. We finish the month with a Mercury sextile Venus on the 31st - should help you follow through with what got started on the 29th.
Overall it looks like a fun month of positive progress. Do use your point of contact with the TexLab Spirits on the front page of this newsletter, get plenty of Light and make it super successful. Blessings & Light & Fun & Love & Success & Joy. Al

December 2003 (Scroll down for November 2003)

The month starts with Saturn as the lonely retrograde planet, but she is joined by Mercury on the 17th - nice way to mess up Christmas. Let's make the most of it anyway it happens almost every year about this time.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 1st and 2nd with the 5th 6th & 7th pretty good too. It's after the Full Moon but the 10th 11th & 12th look like they're worth a shot. Then Mercury turns retrograde and puts quite a damper on the rest of the month. If you're brave and want to buck the Mercury thing anywhere from the 24th through the 29th looks OK.
The Mercury sextile Uranus on the 2nd could get you off to a good start for the month. The Venus Opposition to Saturn on the 6th can go positive or negative depending on how you use it. The Full Moon on the 8th should help you make up your mind. This takes us all the way to the 11th when Venus trines Jupiter bringing about as positive an aspect as you can ever expect to get. This is a good time to complete your Christmas shopping or other fun but difficult tasks. Mercury's opposition to Saturn on the 13th is another plus or minus thing depending on how you play it. Then we get a second Mercury opposition to Saturn on the 22nd - if you made your peace with this one on the 13th you should be able to use it well.
The New Moon of the 23rd is of course tainted by the retrograde Mercury but otherwise is a good time for new beginnings. The Venus sextile Mars on Christmas day could add a bit of zest to the festivities. Enjoy because Mercury squares Mars the next day - tempers tend to be short around here anyway, walk softly. Then on the 30th Venus conjuncts Neptune while Mercury sextiles Uranus - a good time to forge ahead to a better new year.
Overall it looks to be a fun holiday month with its share of bumps but goodies, too. Let's all get into the holiday mood, use plenty of Light and help from our TexLab Spirits through the star of contact on our front page and make it a magnificent month for us all.

November 2003 (Scroll down for October 2003)

The month starts with Saturn and Uranus in the retrograde mode. Uranus turns direct on the 8th leaving us with a nearly clear all systems go period with only Saturn retrograde. Let's make the most of it.
Best planting & project launching days look to be the 3rd 4th & 5th, with the 22nd & 23rd Ok with the 26th 27th 28th 29th & 30th all looking good as well.
The 1st is a busy day with Mercury sextiling Jupiter and trining Saturn while Jupiter sextiles Saturn and Venus squares Uranus. No need to hide under the bed, just handle the mixed bag of energies smoothly and let 'em produce for you. That takes us all the way to the Full Moon of the 8th. Could be quite pleasant what with Uranus turning direct at the same time. But it may bring our the goofiness in a lot of people, try not to be one of them. Then come Veteran's Day (still Armistice Day the 11th to us old timers) Venus sextiles Neptune while Mercury squares Uranus. A real mixed bag nice inspiration coupled with explosive tempers. Keep your temper throttle on off and win big. The next day (12th) Venus squares Mars bringing more explosive feelings. We're forewarned, let's handle it all with tact & grace.
The 14th brings another mixed bag with Mars trining Saturn while Venus squares Jupiter. Be extra cautious about get rich schemes or pie in the sky. Venus conjuncts Pluto on the 17th - could bring a quick jolt of positive energy. Gentle inspiration on the 19th as Venus sextiles Neptune but watch out for the Mars/Jupiter opposition the next day - could lead to way too much impulse spending. Then Mercury squares Jupiter on the 22nd and squares Mars on the New Moon of the 23rd. It's nice that it's a New rather than Full moon for all of this. Busy Mercury conjuncts Pluto the next day let's make it a source of positive energy. The 26th brings a nice Venus sextile to Uranus but also a Mars square to Pluto. Pluto aspects tend to be very short lived, so have a happy Thanksgiving on Thursday and enjoy the rest of the month.
Overall it's a month with lots of planetary action with hardly a dull moment. Let's use lots of Light and help from your TexLab Spirits through the Ishtar star on page one and we'll make it a month of super progress for us all.

October 2003 (Scroll down for September 2003)

We begin with Uranus and Neptune retrograde, they are joined by Saturn on the 25th then Neptune turns direct on the 29th. Makes a pretty smooth flowing month. Best planting and project launching days look to be the 2nd 3rd & 4th Then the 7th & 8th also the 26th 27th 30th & 31st
Looks to be a coast along time clear 'till the 8th when Venus trines Uranus. Nice positive inspirational energy - if you're looking for the just right time to launch a project this is it. The Full Moon of the 10th is nicely enhanced by a Venus trine to Mars - could be a super sexy time all the way around. The 12th brings a Mercury trine to Neptune - very inspirational, glom on to it and find a way to apply it!
The 14th brings the first bump in the road - Mercury square Saturn - there's a major lesson in there somewhere - do recognize and assimilate it to your overall betterment. On the 17th Mercury sextiles Pluto while Venus squares Neptune. Beware of an illusionary disruption of your otherwise comfortable value system Venus sextile to Jupiter the next day should help keep your balance. Venus seems pretty active along here - she trines Saturn on the 20th helping clear away the earlier aberrations.
The Mercury trine to Uranus on the 23rd sets us up for a fruitful New Moon on the 25th - enjoy. Mercury trines Mars on the 27th - a very sexy period even if it's all in your imagination. Watch out for the Mercury square Neptune on the 30th, harebrained schemes could abound that day.
Overall it looks to be a nicely positive month with very few bumps in the road. Do remember to use plenty of Light and help from your Lab Spirits through the power star on our front page and let's make it a month of super magick progress.

September 2003 (Scroll down for August 2003)

Our month begins with Mercury, Mars, Uranus & Neptune in the retrograde mode. Happily Mercury turns direct on the 20th and Mars on the 27th. So the end of the month looks much better than the beginning. Best planting and project launching days look to be the 27th 28th & 29th, with the 1st and 2nd OK with the 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th pretty good, too.
Only mickey mouse aspects 'till the 5th when Venus squares Pluto - could bring a short but strong shake up to your value system, perhaps rethinking of your priorities. Mars opposes Jupiter on the 7th - a tendency to over spend or over extend. Be cautious with this there's no hurry. Mercury conjuncts Venus on the 8th - remember He's still retrograde and could mess up your thinking about affairs of the heart.
The Full Moon of the 10th could bring out a few more nuts than usual, take care that you're not one of 'em. Mercury squares Pluto the next day just adding to the confusion. Hang in there, this too shall pass. All insignificant aspects until the 24th when Venus trines Uranus. This could bring some strong inspiration.
The New Moon of the 25th is tainted by a Venus square to Saturn. Don't let it shake you up - it will try. Now direct Mercury squares Pluto on the 28th - still challenges to your thinking process but these should be more positive. Then Venus sextiles Pluto on the 29th adding a nice ending for our month.
Overall I'd call this an emerging month - getting rid of the 2 very restrictive retrogrades and setting us up for better days to come. Let's use plenty of Light and extra help from our TexLab Spirits through the power star on the front page - and make it a super magick month anyway.

August 2003 (Scroll down for July 2003)

The month begins with Mars, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto in the retrograde mode. They will stay that way all month - except for Pluto who turns direct on the 29th. We should be used to the stickiness by now - let's just forge happily ahead.
Best planting and project launching days look to be the 3rd 4th 5th & 6th with the 9th & 10th the 13th 14th & 15th kind of OK and the 30th & 31st very good.
The 4th brings a nice sextile of Mercury to Saturn making it easy to digest good lessons from the past. Watch out for your and everybody's temper on the 6th when Mercury opposes Mars - it could be quite a wild day. The Venus opposition to Neptune the next day could be a bit delusional but nothing like the mess of the 6th. All this brings us happily to the Full Moon of the 11th, a relatively peaceful start for the fun of the next day when Venus trines Pluto, Mars trines Saturn and Mercury squares Pluto. Lots of promising energy around - just be sure to keep it corralled.
Everybody pretty much plays quietly until the 21st when Venus conjuncts Jupiter. Could be a nice chance for a windfall that day or at least some positive inspiration. Venus' opposition to Uranus the next day will add to the swirling energy - take care to keep it under control. Then Venus opposition to Mars on the 26th sets up a wilder than normal New Moon of the 27th. A few extra swigs of something relaxing for both nights should help you sleep better. The 29th brings an opposition of Jupiter to Uranus - wow! Lots of wild energy - just handle it well The Venus sextile to Saturn the next day should help calm things down.
Overall it looks like quite an interesting month - full of challenges and opportunities. Do be sure to use plenty of extra Light and help from your TexLab Spirits through the power star on our front page. Let's make it a month of super progress for us all.

July 2003 (Scroll down for June 2003)

The month begins with Uranus, Neptune & Pluto in the retrograde mode. They will stay that way all month - not all that sticky, but when Mars joins them on the 29th things could tend to go awry. Best planting and project launching days look to be the 1st, 6th 7th 8th 9th & 10th, with the 15th 16th 17th & 18th reasonably promising as well.
On the 1st we have Jupiter trine Pluto and Mercury trine Venus. I'd call this a potential lucky break day - enjoy & win! The 5th brings us a Venus trine to Uranus - more nicely positive energy to apply to getting ahead in all sections of your value system. On the 8th Venus conjuncts Saturn - perhaps a lesson in discipline or a reward for discipline well exercised in the recent past. The 11th brings us a Venus trine to Mars - could be a very sexy day - condoms advised if you're fooling around.
We get a nice Full Moon on the 13th, fortunately no aspects to bring the nuts out in force, just handle the excess energy positively and keep going nicely forward. On the 19th Mercury opposes Neptune - watch out for delusions of grandeur or otherwise. The 22nd brings a Mercury trine to Pluto - could be a quick jolt of a good idea. Then on the 25th Mercury conjuncts Jupiter - let's use that special energy to get ahead financially.
The beautiful New Moon of the 29th is marred a bit by Mars turning retrograde. Just watch your and everybody else's temper and let all be well. Mercury opposes Uranus on the 31st - lots of energy to control, don't let it get out of hand.
Overall it looks like a nicely positive month with lots of positive energy to produce our go forwards. Do use lots of Light and help from our TexLab Spirits through the power spot on the front page of your newsletter and let's make this a month of great positive progress.

June 2003 (Scroll down for May 2003)

June begins and ends with only Neptune and Pluto in the retrograde mode. Since they are the outermost planets their effects are close to negligible. For all practical purposes we can call this an all systems go month. This gives us some good planting and project launching days: the 2nd 3rd & 4th, the 9th 10th 11th & 12th, with the 29th & 30th looking real good as well.
Beware of wild get rich schemes on the 2nd when Jupiter opposes Neptune. Then watch yours and everybody else's temper on the 5th when Venus squares Mars. There'll be another temper type bump on the 11th when Mercury squares Mars and Venus squares Uranus the next day. Then comes the Full Moon on the 14th "enhanced" by a Mercury square Uranus the same day - lots of crazies will be out - take care that one of 'em is not you.
Finally the squares fade away and we get a nicely uplifting day on the 20th when Mercury & Venus conjunct each other and trine Neptune. There could be plenty of positive inspiration that day. Mercury sextiles Jupiter on the 22nd adding nice vibes to the whole atmosphere and the Mars trine to Saturn feels good too. The 23rd looks like fun with Mercury opposing Pluto, Venus sextile Neptune and Mars conjuncting Uranus. Kind of a mixed bag but let's let it all work nicely for us. The 24th brings a Saturn trine to Uranus while Venus opposes Pluto. Let's use all that nice energy for go forwards. That coasts us all the way to the end of the month when Mercury trines Uranus and opposes Saturn. Lots of energy - harness it neatly and keep going forward.
Overall it looks like a fun and positive month - a few bumps at the start but a super good ending. Do remember to call on your TexLab Spirits for help and guidance and use the power spot on the front page for extra Light & help and let's make this a truly super magick month for us all.

May 2003 (Scroll down for April 2003)

We begin with Mercury and Pluto in the retrograde mode - they are joined by Neptune on the 16th. Then happily Mercury goes direct on the 20th, leaving just Pluto and Neptune retrograde making it virtually an all systems go period. The retrograde Mercury thing taints our best planting days a bit but they look to be the 1st & 2nd, 6th & 7th, 13th, 14th 15th & 16th, with the 29th & 30th reasonably OK, too.
We get a nice New Moon on the 1st enhanced by a Venus sextile Neptune the next day. A good launching for the month with a Venus trine to Pluto on the 7th to make it nicer. But watch yours and everybody else's temper on the 8th when Mars opposes Jupiter. Temper tantrums could be mighty expensive. More bumps in the road - Mercury square Neptune on the 12th then square Mars the next day. You could be deluded into impulsive nonsense. The 14th brings us a Venus sextile to Saturn while Mars conjuncts Neptune - there could be delusions of sexual grandeur but be careful how you sucker for them.
We get a beautiful Full Moon on the 15th which shouldn't bring out any more crazies than usual, but watch yourself anyway. Venus sextiles Uranus on the 18th nice vibes but watch out for the Mercury square to Jupiter the next day - there could be a strong tendency toward stupid spending. The 23rd brings a now direct Mercury square to Jupiter - same comment as the 19th Lots of positive energy on the 25th as Mars sextiles Pluto. Let's take the 26th & 27th together and say Mercury conjuncts Venus and together they square first Jupiter then Neptune. Strange bumps, just hold course and speed and let's finish the month is a blaze of glory.
Overall it looks like a busy month with lots of opportunity for progress. Use plenty of Light and help from your TexLab Spirits through the power spot on the front page and let's make this a super good month for us all.

April 2003 (Scroll down for March 2003)

We start the month with Jupiter and Pluto retrograde. Happily Jupiter goes direct on the 4th leaving us a nearly complete all systems go period until the 26th when Mercury joins Pluto in the backwards direction. I always recommend slipping into the plod mode while Mercury is retrograde - there's enough frustration anyway, but if you try to be really Gung Ho you just might drive yourself nuts. Best planting and project launchingdays look to be the 4th & 5th, 9th & 10th, 15th & 16th, with the 17th & 18th pretty OK, too.
April Fools day (1st) welcomes a New Moon that is enhanced byMercury's sextile to Saturn which should help you be less of an April fool. Mercury's sextile to Uranus on the 6th should help you make the adjustment to daylight savings time - and most of us need all the help we can get with that transition. Beware of a tendency to impulse buying on the 10th when Mercury squares Jupiter. Palm Sunday (13th) gets a bit messed up by a Venus square to Pluto plus a Mercury square to Neptune. Tempers could be a mite raw that day.
The Full Moon of the 16th is followed by a Venus square to Saturn the next day - the nuts could be out in force - take care that you're not one of 'em. Nice soothing energy on the 21st when Venus sextiles Mars. Watch out for the Mercury retrograde thing on the 26th - definitely time to shift into the plod mode. The trine of Venus and Jupiter on the 28th should help you feel better about the whole thing anyway.
.Overall it looks to be a month of opportunity and potential progress for us all. Use plenty of extra Light and help from your TexLab Spirits through the power star on our first page and let's make it a super good month for us all.

March 2003 (Scroll down for February 2003)

Jupiter is our only retrograde planet all month. We should be quite used to it by now. It's almost an all systems go period. Best planting and project launching days look to be the 2nd, 3rd & 4th, the 7th, 8th & 9th and the 12th, 13th & 14th.
The New Moon of the 2nd ushers in a nicely fruitful period. On the 4th Mars sextiles Uranus while Mercury opposes Uranus. That's kind of a mixed bag but it shouldn't be too hard to handle. The 5th brings a Mercury sextile to Mars - a bit of extra mental energy that should be quite constructive. On the 9th Venus opposes Jupiter - a tendency toward a bit of a downer - just understand the cause and you can handle it quite easily. Venus conjuncts Neptune on the 12th bringing delightfully fresh inspiration particularly of a spiritual nature - enjoy. Mercury squares Pluto on the 16th and Saturn the next day. Hold your temper 'cause an outburst could be very expensive.
Let the Full Moon of the 18th help you bring a bunch of projects to fruition. It's powerful. Venus sextile to Pluto the next day should help, too. Venus trine Saturn on the 21st should help even more. Mercury's trine to Jupiter on the 25th should bring some nice progress on the mental/material level. And Mercury's sextile to Neptune on the 27th feels uplifting also. The 28th can be quite interesting with Venus conjunct Uranus while Mercury squares Mars. Lots of energy to handle constructively, but you can do it. Mercury's trine to Pluto on the 31st ends the month on a nicely upbeat note.
Overall it looks to be a fun month - a few challenges but lots of opportunity for real positive progress. Let's remember to use the connection on the front page for your tie to ESP Lab Spirit help, lots of Light & enthusiasm and let's make March a month of super successes.

February 2003 (Scroll down for January 2003)

We begin with Jupiter and Saturn in the retrograde mode - not all that uncomfortable to start with, and it gets better on the 22nd when Saturn turns direct, leaving Jupiter to go His retrograde alone. Pretty close to an all systems go period for sure. This sets up our best planting and project launching days as the 3rd, 4th & 5th with the 8th 9th & 10th Ok and the 13th & 14th very good, too.
After a nice peaceful New Moon on the 1st it's happy Groundhog Day (the 2nd) nicely enhanced by a Venus sextile Uranus and Mars sextile Neptune - nice relaxed inspiration - enjoy! The 5th brings a Mars trine to Jupiter - lots of energy for forging ahead financially. Use it all the way to the Full Moon of the 16th.
That Full Moon is "enhanced" by an opposition of Jupiter and Neptune and a conjunction of Mars & Pluto. I promise you the cookies and nuts will be out in force - try to take care that one of ?em isn't you. The 20th looks like another of these hide under the bed type days Mars opposing Saturn while Mercury opposes Jupiter. It's really a matter of staying very alert to head off new problems at the pass so to speak. Mercury's conjunction with Neptune the next day could bring you the inspiration to handle cleaning up the 20th's messes. There'll be some extra help on the 26th when Mercury sextiles Pluto - nice biting energy to slice through obstacles. I got lost for a moment and tried to figure out what happened to the rest of the month - but it's February and the Mercury trine Saturn on the 28th is a fitting ending. Lots of fresh mental power from this one.
Overall it looks to be quite an interesting month with a few big bumps in the road but also lots of opportunity for positive progress. Do call on your TexLab Spirits for extra help and use plenty of Light and power from touching the power spot on the front page and let's make this a month of wonderful progress together!

January 2003 (Scroll down for December 2002)

We start and end the month with Jupiter and Saturn in the retrograde mode. Not all that bad to live with, but look out! Mercury turns retrograde on the 2nd and stays that way until the 23rd. Particularly disruptive for Gemini's and for communication as a whole, but being forewarned we can prepare to weather it.
Although tainted by the Mercury retrograde the best planting and project launching days look to be the 7th & 8th with the 12th & 13th pretty good, too. In a waning Moon, but at least out from under the Mercury retrograde the 25th & 26th seem passable.
The nice New Moon of the 2nd is marred by the retrograde Mercury thing but we can handle it OK by bring prepared emotionally. The Venus square to Uranus the next day will tend to make tempers short - do watch your fuse and every body else's. On the 5th there's a pleasant stroking as Mercury sextiles Venus. Then on the 8th He sextiles Mars - nice friendly energy. But watch tempers again on the 11th when Mars squares Uranus. A friendly sextile of Venus to Neptune should make the Full Moon of the 18th more idealistic than usual - you'll encounter more dreamer type nuts - have fun with ?em.
The 21st brings a delightful trine of Venus and Jupiter - there's a least a powerful feeling of opulence, let's work on manifesting it, too. Venus conjuncts Pluto on the 25th bringung a sharp but positive boost to your overall well being. But hang on! The big challenge comes on the 28th when Venus and Saturn are in opposition. What you learn here can set a strong positive course for the rest of the year.
Overall it looks like a super month, just slightly marred by the retrograde Mercury. Let's use plenty of help from the Light, our Lab Spirits and the power spot on the front page of this newsletter and get 2003 of to a magnificent start together!
