New Planetary Energy

all signs coexistJune opens with many changes in the planetary energies!

Mercury moved into Gemini where it is  very much at home.  Mercury rules communications and Gemini is the sign of the communicator!   Lets all talk!!

Venus moved into Taurus where it is also feeling quite homey.  Venus is the planet ruling Taurus.  Venus is love and money and Taurus loves  handling money!

Mars just moved into Cancer and will energize Cancerians and get them busy with their projects.  Cancer softens Mars competitive and often combative nature.

Jupiter went Direct today after being retrograde for 4 months.  He is in Libra at 13 degrees as he goes Direct.  Get ready Librans for some positive forward movement finally.  Everyone else look and see where 13 degrees Libra falls in your birth chart,  That’s where you should see things start to pick up for you in beneficial ways.

We also have a Full Moon at 18 degrees Sagittarius tomorrow June 9th and it pushes us to seek adventure and broaden our learning through our emotions.  This will mostly affect you if you have any planets in Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces (all the mutable signs) between 15 and 23 degrees.

Lots is shifting in the heavens for us to experience in our lives.

FIND A LOVE MATCH

It seems that everybody wants to find love.  This is the most asked question in readings, followed by career questions!

You can use The Astrology Game of Cards to find a love match.

Play with 2 to 4 players.

Deal out all the cards to the players.

Each player looks through their cards and must begin by pulling out their Sun sign, as many of this sign as you have.  Lay them on the table.

Next each player should consult the enclosed Elements Card to see if their Sun sign is in the Fire, Air, Earth or Water group.  Notice the other two signs sharing your group.

Look through your cards and pull out all of those signs in your Element  and lay them on the table.

Notice that you are in harmony with those other 2 signs whether or not you have any in your hand.

For example:

Cancerians share qualities with the Scorpios and Pisces, all being sensitive water ‘feeling’ signs.

Gemini shares the Air sign group with Libra and Aquarius.  All are intellectually inclined and enjoy a stimulating conversation.

Taurus shares the Earth sign group with Virgo and Capricorn, all being practical and down to earth signs who take care of the business of life.

Aries share qualities with the Leos and Sagittarians, all being action-oriented fire signs who don’t hesitate to get out there and get things started.

To find more love matches, you need to know your Rising Sign, also known as the Ascendant.  Look across the chart wheel and find the sign on the cusp or beginning of the 7th house,  That is your partnership or marriage house and there is a strong attraction to others with that sun sign or Rising Sign.

For example:

If you are a Leo Rising, ruling your personal house, then you will be attracted to Aquarians, the sign across the zodiac for a potential partner.

If you have a Capricorn Rising sign, you will be very attracted to Cancerians, the sign across the zodiac wheel.

Look at the sign where your Venus is.  That symbol is the little circle with the cross under it. The sign listed with it is your love sign, so you can easily fall in love with someone having that Sun sign or Rising Sign.

For Example Venus in Virgo feels romance with the Virgo Sun Signs or Rising Signs.

You can get a chart wheel done for just $6.00 if you order the Astrology cards and want to add this love match game to all the other great games you can play with these unique cards.   I will need your date, time and city of birth and $20 + $6.00 payable through Paypal or money order.

For a full chart analysis, please check my pricing schedule from the menu bar above.

You can learn a lot about your good love match while you play a game.  Everyone counts up how many cards they laid down to see the winner of the game.  Play it again and again with all your friends!!   Love is always in the air!

Which Sign had a Chart done the Most?

This week I decided to do a bit of research and look through my records at the hundreds of birth charts I have done through the years.  I was wondering about the sun signs of the folks who came to me to have their chart done.  Which sun sign showed up the most? Which sun sign showed up the least?

All twelve signs were represented in good numbers but:

PISCES were highest

Followed very closely by LEOS 

LIBRANS were third

Second to last were CAPRICORNS

and last were the TAURUS folks

Of course, this is just a small cross section of the population and my personal statistics only; yet it is most interesting to me.

Does this surprise you?

WHAT ARE THE REASONS ASTROLOGY WORKS?

Tremendous biological, chemical and physiological changes occur at the instant a new born baby draws in the first breath and consequently lets out his or her first cry.  In the Scriptures it is said, “I will breathe the breath of life into them”.   At this moment in time, more than 400 million electromagnetic cells in the brain become programmed, like a computer by the invisible, but powerful cosmic frequencies, or light waves, coming from our Sun, our Moon and the planets in our solar system.  This occurs in a pattern corresponding to their position in space and their mathematically and astronomically -measured aspects to one another in that magnetically-charged moment in time.  The baby  will feel a powerful electromagnetic tug and become “programmed” so to speak.

If this baby could see the heavens above at that moment, he or she would see their birth chart.  This tug actually can be accepted or rejected through the gift of free will, each time in the future when the Sun, Moon and planets conflict or harmonize with each other and the baby’s programmed natal chart.  However, after doing hundreds of birth charts, I have found that most people do live out their chart and experience recurring planetary transits in the working out of their lives.  Transits can trigger a psychological response or an actual life experience, depending on the angle each planet is making to each planet in the birth chart.  These are called conjunctions, oppositions, sextiles, trines or squares (as well as minor aspects not listed) and depending on the angle, these feelings or experiences will appear to be happy or helpful, perhaps challenging or irritating or frustrating.  But, all serve a purpose in our lives, to help us along or to teach us lessons that also ultimately help us along on our path to growth.good teaching wheel.

STARTING OUT WITH THE ASTROLOGY GAME OF CARDS – A Quick Tutorial

The Astrology Game of Cards:    A good place to begin to enjoy the Basics of Astrology!

my cards learning layout

There are 4 cards for each Zodiac Sign in the above picture.

  • Column 1 shows  the Number cards
  • Column 2 shows the Constellation cards
  • Column 3 shows the Key Word cards
  • Column 4 shows the Symbol cards

Notice that on the left column, the Number cards start at the 1st sign Aries and go down to the 12th sign Pisces.  Each of the other columns do exactly the same, showing them in order from Aries to Pisces.   Shuffle the cards and find one card for each of the different types.  Then sort all of the cards into different piles; each pile made up of the same kind of card.  Then, starting with the Number cards, sort that pile into the order of their place in the Zodiac.

Notice that at the very top are two of the Helper cards…one showing the Order of the signs, and the other is an example of a Horoscope Wheel.

The helper card should now be used to help you sort each of the columns from Aries to Pisces.

If you play with the cards this way a few times, you will rapidly become familiar with them and this knowledge will be helpful as you begin to play all the fun games to follow!

If you look at the Symbols cards, you will learn the dates that each sign falls within.  e.g. Aries falls between March 22 and April 20th.  ( The dates for each sign can change according to your year of birth.  Birthdays on a cusp need a Birth Chart  done to determine their actual sign.  e.g. the beginning or end dates could change if you were born close to the beginning or end of a sign.

Now that you are familiar with the cards, a great game to start with is the “old fashioned” game of  WAR.   After shuffling, the deck is divided between the players.  Without looking at their cards, each player simultaneously plays their top card and the highest sign takes all the cards (Pisces being the highest card for this game).  If there is a tie, each then lays 3 cards face down spelling out w-a-r and turns up the 4th card proclaiming the word war and the highest card takes all cards in that play.  The largest pile wins!

Now you are ready to play some more great games!  See my Blog on How to Play The Astrology Game of Cards, which is also on the Menu Bar.

The Astrology Game of Cards©Has Arrived

0-covercardLearn the basics of Astrology using my colorful Astrology Card Game, a new concept just created!  This is a fun way to play familiar card games while you automatically get familiar with Astrology.

Enclosed with each deck are suggested ways to play the first two of many possible games:  Zodiac Rummy and Zodiac Solitaire.

Full rules for Astro RummyGreat for 3 or 4 people.  Deal out 7 cards to each player.  Turn the remainder face down and turn up one card to start the discard pile.  Each player in turn draws a card. When a card is drawn, there must be a discard.  You may have the option of picking up the top card from the discard pile or even picking up the entire discard pack instead of drawing a card… But you must have two cards of that zodiac set in hand. In addition, if you take the entire discard pack,  because you now have more possibility of winning, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO LAY DOWN 3 SETS  RATHER THAN 2 SETS LIKE THE OTHER PLAYERS! Then discard 1 card as usual. When play ends, whoever wins gets 25 points.  If a card set of 4 has been already laid down by any player, it doesn’t count against them. When there is a winner, any cards remaining in the other players’ hands count 5 points for the winner.

Zodiac Solitaire is played like regular Solitaire except there are 12 instead of 13 cards and no suits. Great for playing and learning when you are alone! Lay out 7 rows of cards across, turning up the first card and turning down the other 6 cards.  Deal across the row again, turning up the second card and turning down the other 5 cards.  Again, turning up the 3rd card and turning down the other 4 cards, and so on until you have turned up the 7th card.  From the cards showing on the table, fill the rows down in order of the signs  from Pisces to Aries just like Kings down to Aces.  The 12th sign Pisces acts like a King and when there is an empty spot, it fills that spot.  With the remainder of the deck, by threes turn over cards and see if they can be used anywhere. Aries acts like an Ace and when you have gone as far as possible, you can turn over the cards by ones to see if any can fit in.  Begin laying off the Aries (Aces) up top followed by Taurus (like 2’s) and then Gemini (like 3’s) and so on, until you complete the 4 sets up top.  You will win most of the time with these cards and you will learn the order of the signs forward and backward each time you play.

Please use the Informational card included in your deck to learn the order of the signs to play Zodiac Solitaire.

MORE FUN GAMES TO PLAY:

Zodiac Element GameDeal 7 cards to 3 or 4 players.  Collect 2 sets of 4 cards containing an Element such as Air, Fire, Earth or Water to win this game.  No discard is needed to go out.

Air signs include Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.

Fire signs include Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.

Earth signs include Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

Water signs include Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Note:  There is a card showing these Elements included in each card deck.

Zodiac Birth Sign Game –  Before play begins declare your Sun Sign.  If a second player has the same birth sign, he or she must choose the sign of a family member instead and declare it.  Deal out 7 cards to 3 or 4 players.  Collect one set of 4 cards from your birth sign and one set of any other sign in order to win the hand.  Winner gets 25 points and play ends.  No discard is needed to go out.

Zodiac Human Symbol GameThere are just 4 zodiac symbols depicting humans. They are the Gemini Twins, the Virgo Virgin, the Sagittarius Archer and the Aquarius Water Bearer.  Note that Aquarius is not a water sign despite being shown pouring water.  This sign is part of the Air group of Elements and has been known to be pouring out ideas.  The other 8 symbols are animals or objects.    Deal out 7 cards to 3 or 4 people.  Only 1 set of a sign with people  is needed to go out and win and when this happens, the game ends immediately and winner gets 25 points.  Note:  To vary this game, you could collect one of each of the human zodiac signs rather than 4 of the same sign.

Zodiac Numbers GameGreat for kids!  Deal 7 cards to 3 or 4 players. Collect any 4 consecutive numbers of the zodiac number cards only.  Collect just one set of four to win, picking up a card and discarding a card.

Check the enclosed informational Symbols card to see the consecutive order of the signs from #1 Aries to #12 Pisces

Zodiac Fishing Gamesimilar to the Go Fish Game – another great game that kids and also adults can enjoy with these cards.  WHEN YOU ASK OTHER PLAYERS FOR A PARTICULAR SIGN, THEY MUST HAND OVER ALL THAT THEY HAVE OF THAT SIGN.  The winner is the first one to collect 2 zodiac sets and win 25 points.

Rob The Deck   Deal 8 cards to each player.  Lay out 6 cards right side up on the table to work from.  If you hold a card in the same zodiac sign as one on the table, pick that card  up and along with the card in your hand, begin to accumulate your pile, facing up.  Keep going until you have no match. If you can’t play, lay a card down in the center from your hand.  Each player builds their pile.  If any player has a card in the same zodiac sign as the top card in your pile, they get to rob the deck and move your pile to theirs and the same for you.  Deal out 8 more cards when the hands are all gone and continue playing.  When there are no more cards to deal  the largest pile wins!

My Mercury Retrograde Experience

We recently had the ultimate retrograde experience!  

PC Exploding

My husband and I really needed to upgrade my Galaxy S3 and his Iphone S4 phones which were three years old and giving us trouble. So when my husband stopped at the phone store to get help with his ailing phone and learned about the special promotion to upgrade cell phones until Christmas and pay just an additional $10 a month, he called me and was going to order one for himself . We would return in the morning to get mine!  However when he went to sign paperwork, there was nothing in writing about the special pricing and he decided to go home and check with the carrier about that.   I knew that Mercury was to go retrograde and we would be in the shadow (slowdown) period, but thought maybe it could work out, still being 3 days away.  It does affect signing contracts as well as communication equipment.  But, this deal would be over if we waited until after January 8th!

He called and they told him this was definitely the current promotion, so we went to the store the next morning but could not seem to get waited on.   They were very busy and so we left after an hour.  We went home and went on their website to order the phones, but the screen kept locking up or timing out.  We got a salesperson through the website and she tried guiding us through the process unsuccessfully.  She gave us a number to call to place our order.   After being on hold over an hour we got a rep and placed our order for new phones..  We then had to go to our email to find a link to accept the contract.  The contract was the standard one at full price and we questioned having to sign a contract not stating the price we were to be getting.. We could not complete the transaction because the screen again kept locking up or timing out.  That person told us to close and try again, which we did, once again unsuccessfully.  Next we were transferred to a Tech and at this point it was about 1:00 in the morning!  If there had not been such a huge savings, we would have quit right there.

This guy was actually from Global Tech and assured us we would get this special price. He said he had just ordered 3 new phones for himself and his family and would check his personal email to see if his confirmation stated the sale price, and we went on hold.  Naturally he could not access his emails.  We were told they were doing maintenance on the website due to the heavy traffic.  He said he did not see that our order had been placed, although we had been assured by the first Sales Rep that it was placed and just would not be shipped until we accepted the contract on line.   He put the order in for us and promised it would not be duplicated.  We accepted the terms on line and he said they would ship free by Fed Ex  in 2 days. At 2:15 am we were finally off the phone!  I must add that all the reps were more than helpful.  The big sale coupled with all the retrograde issues made for a heavy load for them.

Our phones did arrive in 2 days and we set about to transfer the old phone information over to the new phones.  Of course mine would not transfer.  We called Customer Service and  she asked for all the numbers on the box.  The rep got the transfer process to start by giving the phone a bump from the office.  She stayed on the phone with us for 30 minutes until she had to go home.  It was still not finished.  She promised to call us the next day to see if all was well, which she did!    Even though I had charged the phone fully after opening it, the phone ran out of battery life.   Sigh!    I plugged it in and went to bed.   In the morning when I unplugged, it appeared that everything had transferred over, except my pictures.  But I found them later in the cloud.   My husband also had some trouble getting his phone transferred and had to restart it several times before being successful.  Note that in our email confirmation, we did get credit for the promotional savings!

Now after a week, things seem to be working and we are really enjoying our new phones. We did pay a price in time and frustration due to the timing with pesky Mercury.  I thought the details were interesting enough to share with y’all!

Daylight Savings Time – More Than You Ever Wanted to Know

ASTROLOGERPEG'S BLOG

Recently while working on a Birth Chart, I once again came up against this crazy system of Daylight Savings Time in regard to recording birth times.  During the summer months did nurses record the birth time as DST or did they record  the ‘real’ time, which would be one hour earlier?   Was the birth during War Time when DST was observed?   Were you born in a state or county that chose not to observe DST during the summer?   Having an accurate birth time is important because it tells us what sign was rising over the horizon when you were born.  This becomes your Rising Sign or Ascendant, the part of you that is seen by the public.     Here are some interesting facts I discovered while researching DST:

In March, 1918  Summer DST was observed for 7 months, until October, 1918.  Then again in March, 1919, DST was observed…
