That's when Jupiter and Saturn form their once-per-20-year conjunction in the first degree of Aquarius. It seems like a long time from now, though not at the current blinding pace that time is moving. More
The mindful check-in is a brief three- to five-minute formal practice of moving attention away from whatever outer demands and experiences you may be facing and getting fully in touch with your internal experience in the moment. More

Television, magazines, websites, and newspapers are all rounding up audiences to be sold to advertisers. That’s their business model. That’s the point. More
This has been an exhausting year. Everyone is feeling it, or will be, but only some people are saying what they're experiencing and how they feel. We all know that change is upon us. Let's put an anchor down into the long-range astrology on which I'll base the following analysis. This consists of several main factors and many supporting ones. The common threads involve slow-movers Uranus, Pluto and Eris, all of which have precedents for revolution. More
