Your Astrological Guide To Getting Organized!
Dell Horoscope|January 2018

Sometimes, working at home as a writer, I feel overwhelmed by pieces of paper, large and small. The same is true of pens and reference books. When the stacks are tall enough to cast shadows, I grow claustrophobic and flee to the public library. There I can work in a spacious, orderly, and ideal if somewhat sterile world.

After a few days of this, some hovering angel invariably motivates me to toss out the debris and arrange things into a tolerable semblance of order. Once again my own office is more comfortable. Sometimes this miracle is accomplished after watching an episode of the cable television show Hoarders—Buried Alive. The specter of being consumed by too many possessions until they begin to bury me is as haunting as a recurrent nightmare.

It often becomes a reality for many people. A local newspaper published a story a while back describing how several times each month individuals, as well as families, are discovered living miserably, buried in mounds of unhealthy squalor. On a Saturday morning recently, I took refuge at the library after feeling particularly overwhelmed by an accumulation of items. It was late winter, and I was having an especially hard time gathering the fortitude to cope with what my surroundings had become. The head librarian suddenly interrupted the silence and reverie with an announcement. A free class was being offered in just a few minutes in the activities room about how to organize one’s life. On an impulse I decided to attend. It was a surprise to see that the room was already full. I was fortunate to get a seat. Many more library patrons seemed to be interested in this topic than I ever would have guessed. The speaker, a professional organizer, was wonderfully entertaining and informative. She first spoke of the benefits and pleasures of a well-organized environment. She then described how to achieve this ideal. The presentation was titled Success in Seven Steps. To me, this immediately suggested the influences of the seven visible heavenly bodies (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) in traditional astrology. During the week that followed, keeping both the transits and my natal chart in mind, I tried the seven-steps technique. I was delighted at how well it worked. The seven steps actually became a path leading to a light and bright, more well-organized environment. The goal is similar to an astrological consultation that uses the horoscope as a tool for lifestyle improvement in a variety of ways.

Here are the seven steps along with the astrological correlations I drew. Ideally, the natal horoscope provides a map to follow leading to a successful life. Take a glance at the seven visible bodies in your own natal horoscope. They can be a guide to use in experimenting with organizing your own life. I used The Rulership Book by Rex E. Bills as a reference in identifying the seven steps in organization with their proper astrological rulers.

Does Astrology Deny Free Will?

A criticism commonly leveled against astrology involves the thorny issue of free will. If our lives are somehow influenced or even predetermined by the stars, the argument goes, doesn’t that mean we have no real choice, that we’re little more than puppets of an overarching cosmic fate?

February's Planets And You

On the 15th, there will be a Solar Eclipse at 27° Aquarius. The sole lunation of the month, it opposes the degree of last August’s Solar Eclipse at 29° Leo, reenergizing issues from last summer. It also reawakens issues from 18, 36, and 54 years ago, as well as further back. The shadow of the eclipse falls in the southpolar region, not visible from any major country. It was the late Al Morrison who theorized that eclipses conjunct the poles tend to have an effect on the world in general, much as planets at 0° of the cardinal signs do.

The Astro-View From Scotland

Anyone who has ever written a regular column will know that there are times when inspiration is—not to put too fine a point on it—notable by its absence. At other times, so many ideas are flying around that catching one by the tail to pin it down is, to say the least, tricky. And, you never know, as the last deadline is met and you can now relax for a few weeks, which set of conditions is going to prevail the next time.

Question: Which dorm mate should I choose?Date: July 23, 2017Time: 10:24:00 A.M. E.D.T.Place: West Hartford, CTThis question came from my client’s daughter who is beginning her first year of college and will live on campus. She asked: “I have a dorm room at the college I will attend this fall. Two of my girlfriends are also attending the same college. They both want to room with me, but I can only take one as a roommate. Which one should I choose?”I asked her which friend requested to room with her first. This a very important question because it establishes the houses that rule each friend.

December's Planets And You

As loyal readers know, eclipses are the most powerful energizers in astrology. I usually begin an eclipse analysis about three months prior to its occurrence because the general rule is that Solar Eclipses begin to heat up the degrees in the zodiac about 90 days in advance. An example from last spring, however, demonstrates that this time span is simply a guideline.

Christmas And Soul - Centered Gifts For The Signs

The search for self—the process of individuation—is not a fad. Certainly, there are processes, weekend intensives, and specialized spiritual products and programs that come and go. We could say that there are a number of outer forms for the search for self that are indeed trendy, glamorous, and faddish, but that is the nature of all forms of social popularity in general. The essential search for the key to the expansion of consciousness and the resultant transformations in our attitudes and lifestyles are certainly not faddish. There is a Path, and that Path is the Goal; our job is getting There, and I assure you that there is a “There” to get to.—AO

The Astro - View Scotland

The Titan Prometheus was a pretty arrogant fellow in my view. According to Greek myth, he stole the fire of knowledge from the gods, hidden in a fennel stalk, to give to humanity for our enlightenment. Did he consult any humans beforehand to see if we wanted such a double-edged gift? To the best of my knowledge, he did not. He thought he knew best. For this blatant act of hubris—i.e., thinking you are as smart as the gods—he was savagely punished by Zeus, their king. You probably know the story, but it bears repeating just to remind us that hubris is not a good idea. Chained to a rock, Prometheus had his liver pecked out by an eagle on a daily basis; it regrew overnight—the punishment never ended.
