When it feels like something big is looming, 
it usually is!
  Saturn has a way of forcing issues and holding us in a situation until we find a better way of doing things. It is the time keeper of the solar system and sends a message of taking a greater responsibility for our circumstances. It can be burdonsome and also offer an opportunity to take the reigns and settle matters to clear the path for the future.

Saturn is the fifth planet from the Sun and is now in Capricorn for 2 years.
Depending on your own birth chart will determine its effect in your life. Life becomes more serious and a need to be diligent is essential to work with this powerful energy.
Sandra Helton graduated from Astrology Dynamics 

Astrology Dynamics, founded by Sybil Leek and Charles Luntz in England, was the first accredited astrology school. The courses Sandra took were in person classes and required a written and oral exam for graduation. They also required that the math be learned without the use of computer software. After graduation from Astrology Dynamics, Sandra continued to advanced studies and participated in several research projects. She feels it is a continual lifetime learning process and points out that being educated in this field is essential.

She has a worldwide clientele and worked as astrologer and columnist for Shirley MacLaine for 20 years.

Sandra says, “Even though the daily newspaper horoscope and the customary horoscope columns in most all media is scoffed at and is not a reliable source, the very fact that it is part of journalism and news in general is indicative of how much it is an integral part of people’s lives. If it were not accepted then those simple articles and columns would have faded away. People resonate to the truth and even those simple and benign columns represent a truth of our life’s foundation. You can debate it, but you cannot fool the spirit about what is valid. Years ago there was a bogus paper published saying that astrology was invalid. Later it was revealed that all those signatures were from scientists who were attending a conference and the paper was just passed around and signed without even knowing what it was. Many of these scientists were embarrassed and tried to correct their error. Once a scientist who scoffed astrology was given texts and instruction and became lost as to how to do the mathematics of a basic horoscope erection. He just could not do it! Well, if I were debating I would rest my case here. I do remember that in my mathematics class we began with 26 people and by the end of it, there were three of us left. That in itself should say something of the extensive and complexity of astrology. 

I have wonderful clients who are using the guidance I offer them to improve and better their lives. I am fortunate to have clients who want to know more about themselves and are willing to seek the extraordinary insight and counsel that is astrology.”

Quoting Sandra, “It is wonderful that so many are interested in astrology. It is not an obscure science for the elect few, but is something for everyone to utilize and enjoy and learn as an empowerment tool for their lives. I encourage investigation and learning and working with your own chart. If you plan to consult an astrologer, I really recommend you seek the services of someone who has been willing to invest their time to learn from professionals and knowledgeable teachers. To properly learn astrology is not just a financial investment, but also one of time - it cannot be properly learned in a few weeks or months. I encourage everyone to seek information and to find ways to use astrology to better their lives. Even if just for gardening it is a great asset. I have seen some amazing gardens planted and tended using lunar cycles. From flowers to career moves, astrology is for everyone as it is our foundation in this dimension where time and space meets.”

Unraveling the Mystery of Potter and Rowling

Two famous women writers have birthdays this week – Beatrix Potter born July 28, 1866 and J.K. Rowling born July 31, 1965. Each have contributed to the world great literary works and also both were groundbreaking in the field as each while living in different eras a hundred years apart became successful when it was risky that a woman would be accepted and then to be so historically renowned and carved forever in history. Women had limited opportunities a hundred years ago and even now it was suggested to Rowling that she use her initials, J.K., rather than her feminine name to advance her chances of success. Both have forever painted great visions in the minds of all people of all ages for all time. 

For anyone who may not know these Leos, J.K. Rowling is a British author of seven books about a young wizard named Harry Potter and Beatrix Potter was a British writer and illustrator who created the characters Peter Rabbit and his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail.

Leo rules creativity such as art and writing and also children. Since July 22 and until August 21 the Sun travels through Leo while Mercury and Venus will be weaving many inspiring and resourceful patterns for you to utilize. 

Potter and Rowling both have in their birth charts Venus and Mercury in Virgo that gives the ability to write and create in great detail. It is interesting that the hero of Rowling’s books is names Potter. Rowling gave Harry Potter a Leo birthday. Charts and the article are available here: Articles Page

WHAT IS ASTROLOGY?
An astrology chart is a map of the heavens when you were born. Someone born on the same date and at the same time but in a different location would have a completely different chart when correctly calculated. To be accurate, an astrologer should know the mathematics of calculation and be able to decipher the many angles of planets to each other and what they mean. It isn’t predestination or fate, although there are many aspects that make it a reliable source of understanding the individual soul journey. 

Among the many scholars who believe in astrologer were Hippocrates, Sir Isaac Newton, Galileo and Pythagoras. Medicine/the medical field was created because of astrology as the first remnants were associating certain parts of the physical body with each of the twelve zodiac signs. Hippocrates said, “A physician that does not know the truth of astrology is not a physician but a fool.”
Before that, the zodiac represented many areas in the Bible such as the twelve disciples being the twelve zodiacal signs and Jesus as the Sun.
