The Solistice - Predictions for 2008

Last night's show with Claudia McNeely went well, you will be able to listen if you missed it through the radio website at: http://www.TheMixTalk.com

But I will give you a little hint here and of course we will include the whole column on my website astrologyandmore.com

What to expect in the first quarter of 2008.

The focus is on emotional talk, people are challenged by the government's past policies. There is a struggle with housing, mortgages banking, and insurance companies.

Areas that have been over-built will be hurt hardest.

Expect secrets to surface during the mercury retrograde especially as it stations retrograde from January 27th to February 5th.

Economy is down, feelings of depression and yet idealism permeate the nation.

Oil prices will continue to inflate.

Some national disaster is likely during this period as well. May be due to freezing weather or explosion or both. We definitely have weather issues during this period that are excessive.

In case you missed it the planet is in a severe tilt and this will bring harsh weather conditions - hot, cold, hurricane, tornado, typhoon, flood, drought, volcanic activity, etc beyond anything we have seen in the past.

Astrologically speaking many planets are going out of bounds and this is part of the equation.

Investments in the U.S. economy are not doing well in this period. But foreign investments are hot. Investing in foreign building, foreign governments, foreign expansion and foreign technology.

Major stress point for investments, military, employment, health care and small animals is evident between February 16 to 18th. This time may bring a turning point for Gold. Precious metals will rise.

This is a critical period for the president and he may come through with flying colors as he responds to a natural disaster with greater aplomb then he did with Katrina.

A time of Karmic evolution, harsh weather, internal struggles with war and image, while the economic foothold is slipping from infrastructure and jobs to over-confidence in our international allies.

As a nation, a people and our image abroad, we will be challenged by foreign governments, the United Nations or other international society, accountants, engineers and generals.

A legal action may be taken in the house during this period to make changes with military, health care, and employment, but the money will not be available to implement this good action.


We stand on the shoulders of our ancestors

Hi all, today I had a most interesting experience. As I was driving my mother, aunt, grandmother and others who have left the physical reality came to visit. They told me to consider how far I have pushed the envelope beyond all their achievements. They suggested I examine how far all women have come past the times of their mothers, grandmothers and great-great grandmothers.

I felt the emotional depth of what they wanted me to understand. Women today have freedom that our lineage of women never had. A freedom that many dreamed of.

This freedom we now have stems from the women who challenged their families and their society. The women who made breakthroughs in consciousness to allow a creative space for their progeny to grow.

I look around and see how far we have come. In the last fifty years women have moved from file clerk to CEO, from housewife to TV Anchor, from proof-reader to Award-Winning Author.

I am so grateful that my female ancestors worked to create a space for me to grow into who I am.

In every field, we stand on the shoulders of those who broke ground before us and I just wanted to share with you my gratitude for all who have come before.

We are fortunate to have the freedom to choose our lifestyles, our work, our place of residence and our method of expression. We are even more fortunate to be able to read, write and speak across the world through wires, waves and satellites.

As Saturday turns to Sunday, I just want to say Thank You to everyone who has opened these doors and Thank You to all who are doing even more to create more choices and more freedom in every area of consciousness throughout our galaxy.


What is a Metaphysical Minister?

You ask what is a Metaphysical Minister, I will do my best to explain. Please ask further questions once you have read this, so I add more clarification in future blogs.

A metaphysical minister is one who lives by the Spiritual Laws and counsels others so they can attain clear thinking in their lives.

Frequently emotional issues and confusing situations are the result of a dis-connection between one's heart (soul center) and the mind. Then the mind takes over with fears and others opinions creating confusion and disharmony in the body. A Metaphsycial Minister helps one sort that out and rediscover or reconnect with the true self - soul.

It does not have anything to do with dogma or religion. Thus it honors everyone's path knowing that every path is valuable and that each individual aligns themselves in the most harmonious way (at least that is what we hope for - though often the choice of path is fostered upon the individual through parentage or peer pressure)

You may ask what exactly is metaphysics, or what are the Spiritual Laws? Both valid and excellent questions.

Metaphyscis - is a combinations of Greek words - Meta meaning beyond and physics - things relating to, or part of the physical world. In todays world metaphysics loosely means subjects that relate to things beyond the physical world.

A Metaphysician is a person who studies and works with subjects beyond this world. This of course would include the Spiritual Laws - the laws of creation, manifestation, and karma.

When we understand and live by the Spiritual Laws, we live in harmony with life, maintaining balance. This alignment creates what I call, 'Right Thinking.'

That of course may sound like there is an opposite, 'Wrong Thinking,' but actually that would not be quite correct. Instead the proper term would be, 'imbalanced Thinking.'

An example of this would be, when an individual personalizes what another says to them.

When we take words in and find ourselves lacking we do harm to ourselves. We need to learn to listen to the other individual with an open mind, and to ask questions in a way that honors the others opinions before falling into a personalized posture, which will result in either folding into ourselves feeling a sense of failure, or taking the opposite approach of striking out in defense.

This is what a Metaphysical Minister does. They help an individual unravel experiences and offer techniques the individual can use to create a more balanced, harmonious life.


Should I be solvent by 2009?

You state the astrologers in Florida are saying you should be solvent by 2009 and want to know if I agree....

Yes I do agree with other astrologers.

I have been saying since 1996 that between 2010 and 2015 the economy will transform completely. I am not sure it will exist as we know it at all. We may go back to trading which means that paper money may become obsolete or worthless.

I am uncertain how it will come about - if we would take a more prudent road economically as a nation, it might simply be the move to a card system that the central banking cartels would just love and the people would fall into without a whimper. That is how technology is moving and deny as most will, it is what the consciousness predicts for the future. I could picture it further but to do so is so horrid I will leave it there.

However because the road our government had embarked upon over the last 50 years and escalated into since the Clinton presidency, it looks like the crumbling infrastructure along with the increased levels of natural disasters (due to the interminable tilt of the axis beyond anything imagined for millions of years) will determine the fate of this nation.

With neither the human resources due to National Guardsmen deployed to foreign soil, and the lack of funds due to billions devoted to democratic posturing, a pseudonym for international invasions, there is not enough of either to rebuild a nation positioned for disaster.

Finally we have outsourced so many American jobs that the picture of homelessness looms. The spiritual beings I work with told me in the spring of 2007 that in a few years everyone would personally know someone who is homeless! To say tears came to my eyes is an understatement. This hit me like an bomb to the heart. Why, because back in the sixties they told me that in the near future everyone would personally know someone with cancer, and of course that has been true for years.

So solvency is important. But I believe more important is forming groups of neighbors or small communities that have a variety of skills because we will need this to survive the disasters that will change this nation and the world.

As we enter the new world past 2012, we who choose to stay, will light it with integrity, something sorely missing from the physical hierarchy around the planet. The rebirth of human awareness of who we are is part of the ascension of the planet into the ninth world of the Mayan.

So much to talk about, add your questions and comments and I will respond.

Anyway got to go right now, so much to do, but yes become solvent by 2009 and also consider what you have, where you are and what you really need, these factors will be thrust upon many in an instant, better to have thought that through long before it happens.
