The Biggest Book of Horoscopes Ever will be published on September 13 by Page Street Publishing. It’s a big book, all right, 528 pages , and includes three years of monthly predictions – 2017-2019 – for all 12 signs. I spent most of 2015 researching and writing it and enjoyed every second of it. It made me delve into the larger astrological picture for the next three years.
We certainly live in interesting times and the challenges during 2017-2019 will be abundant for most of us. The way we meet and deal with these challenges depends on who we are at our core, in the innermost heart of ourselves. It depends on our fundamental beliefs about the nature of reality. Do we create the scripts of our lives? If we do and we don’t like the script we’re living, how can we change it? Improve it? Revise it?
When we’re confronted with a difficulty, do we hide? Do we pull the covers over our heads and hope that when we wake up things will be better? Do we take action? Place blame on others? Take zero responsibility for our own part in the difficulty? Do we pay attention to the synchronicities that unfold and allow them to act as guides, confirmations?
For Carl Jung, astrology fell under the broad umbrella of synchronicity, the term he coined. He defined synchronicity as the coming together of inner and outer events in a way that is meaningful to the observer and can’t be explained by cause and effect. In terms of astrology, why should the positions of planets at the moment you draw your first breath have any effect on you at all? And yet, they do. Even on the most superficial level – sun signs – each of us usually can identify with the general description, the archetype, of the sign.
From the introductions to the three years:
“The year begins with Mercury retrograde in Capricorn, then moving back into Sagittarius on January 4, and turning direct in that sign on January 8. It means the year may be off to a slow start, with things not falling into place the way we would like. After January 8, the pace picks up. Be sure to check on the specifics for your sign in the monthly roundups.”
“For most of this year, until November 8, expansive Jupiter is in Scorpio. Everyone benefits from a Jupiter transit, but for water and earth signs, this transit is especially powerful. Some of the luckiest times this year are when Venus and Jupiter travel together through Scorpio. This happens between September 9 and October 30.”
“Overall, 2019 features interesting changes in the slower moving planets. In December, expansive Jupiter enters earth sign Capricorn, sure to be positive for all earth and water signs. It joins Pluto in that sign. Uranus also enters earth sign Taurus for the second time and remains there for the next seven years. This transit should be exciting for all earth and water signs.”
If, as the saying goes, timing is everything, then the transits of the planets can certainly help you determine when to act and, as Henry Miller so famously said, when to stand “as still as the hummingbird.”
Since preorders are important in terms of sales, I’m offering an incentive. If you preorder the book between now and September 12th (the day before it is released), please email me your order confirmation at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll enter your name into a drawing. Ironically, at least for me, the book is being released under a Mercury retrograde in Virgo, a sign Mercury rules, not a good time for the release of a book. Fortunately, it turns direct nine days later, on September 22. So on September 23, I’ll pick three of the names.
These three individuals will receive personalized interpretations of their natal charts with 3 months of predictions. These interps won’t be from an astrology program, but will come from my decades of experience as an astrologer. I’ll need the date, place, and exact time of your birth. It should be on your birth certificate, but if it isn’t, ask mom, dad, a sibling. The time is vital because the degree of the rising or ascendant in a birth chart changes every four minutes and the ascendant sets up the chart.
These reports usually run from 8-12 single spaced pages and include the daily motion of the planets, the new and full moons, the retrograde periods, and your progressed chart, which narrows timing to about a month. In other words, the report pinpoints potential. What you do with that potential is up to you, your free will.
