Mercury Retrograde March 22 to April 15 2018

March 5th, 2018
Share Button

Mercury retrograde, a malefic astrological event, occurs in less than three weeks.

Common problems include communication misunderstandings, complications involving new endeavors, and delays of all types. Be careful with important decisions, new plans, and legal contracts because judgment tends to be substandard.

Revisiting the past is common during Mercury retrograde, as is originating new solutions for old problems.

See this page for a thorough list of Mercury retrograde themes and a general timeline.

As mentioned in the linked information above, the approximate three-week period leading up to Mercury retrograde usually involves more challenges than the actual retrograde period.

Mercury retrograde March 22 2018 details:

  1. Mercury goes retrograde 3-22-2018 at 5:18 p.m. PDT, 16 degrees 54 minutes Aries.
  2. Mercury goes direct 4-15-2018 at 2:20 a.m. PDT, 04 degrees 46 minutes Aries.

The bar graph in this post includes the March 2018 Mercury retrograde period, along with other basic astrological events.

Tracking Mercury retrogrades allows you to gain an understanding of the cyclical nature of life, and you can even reduce your overall risk in everyday life when you know the typical drawbacks of this phenomenon.

Personality Analysis: Intelligence vs. Intellectualism

February 12th, 2018
Share Button

The basic meaning of intelligence involves mental sharpness, comprehension, and adept application of knowledge.

There are various types of intelligence, including practical intelligence, emotional intelligence, and spiritual intelligence.

In a mundane sense, my findings show that intelligent people more often possess admirable traits such as a tendency to be sensible, realistic, grounded, effective, and no-nonsense.

Intelligent people may be easy to identify during an initial conversation, but oftentimes not. Additionally, subconscious fears and defenses distort objectivity. The stronger a person’s fears and defenses, the harder it is for him or her to see other people’s character objectively. Appearance can be misleading. A person may not come across as intelligent; perhaps he doesn’t have a way with words like intellectuals tend to, yet his solutions and problem solving skills may be light years ahead of his intellectual counterpart.

Alternatively, my findings show that intellectuals more often posses undesirable traits such as self-deception, excessive idealism, and a tendency to be unrealistic.

Espousing the theoretical and unsubstantiated doesn’t fix real world problems such as a stagnant economy and low wages. The money to fund endless government giveaways won’t magically appear no matter how brilliantly the intellectual denies scarcity and no matter how much he ignores the idea of fiscal sustainability.

Some of the key personality traits I review in evaluating intelligence, utilizing my proprietary systems of analysis (including handwriting analysis) include the following: logical thinking; investigative thinking; ability to make distinctions/sense of discernment; inquisitiveness; originality; organizational ability; analytical ability; visionary thinking; flexibility; and quick comprehension.

I also review the following traits, and others, which tend to symbolize a lack of intelligence: apathy; undeveloped mental abilities; superficial thinking; naiveté; emotional immaturity; lack of emotional balance; and disorderly thinking.

Finally, I review the following traits, and others, which intellectuals, not intelligent people, tend to posses—these detrimental attributes keep him trapped in theories and abstract notions (and outdated ideologies), while he avoids hard, cold realities that actual intelligent people come to realize: stubbornness; excessive abstract thinking; excessive fantasy orientation; lack of objectivity; self-deceit; and rationalization.

A person can be highly intellectual and intelligent at the same time, but the negative characteristics listed above, and others, lead the intellectual to make dumb decisions.

Nobody is perfect and everyone has his or her own unique fears and defenses, but it sure does save a lot of time and hassle by knowing ahead of time which person is likely to be more of a challenge than reward.

Solar Eclipse February 15 2018

January 28th, 2018
Share Button

A solar eclipse occurs February 15, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 1:05 p.m. PST, 27 degrees 07 minutes Aquarius.

Overall, eclipses symbolize challenges instead of rewards, but solar eclipses are typically easier than lunar eclipses. Generally, lunar eclipses symbolize endings, and solar eclipses beginnings.

Although I recommend a comprehensive approach using pattern recognition involving multiple indicators, you can still get an idea of the symbolism of astrology by tracking single factors such as eclipses.

The exceptions to my recommendation are those rare, exceedingly psychic individuals who can use single factors as touchstones for consistently accurate divination.

As outlined in this blog post, a lunar eclipse occurs January 31, 2018.

How the symbolism relates to you depends on the patterns in your comprehensive astrology charts. For some this eclipse will be inconsequential, but for others the eclipse and the associated patterns represent key life events and circumstances.

Approximately three weeks before and a few days after an eclipse, perception tends to be distorted. Basically, things that seem to be okay may not be, and other things are better than they appear. Questionable decisions are a hallmark of eclipses. My findings show this applies to everyone, some more so than others.

Be careful with significant investments, legal contracts, and other high-risk endeavors, including high-risk physical activities.

The bar graph in this blog post includes the February 15, 2018 solar eclipse, along with other basic astrology events.

Lunar Eclipse January 31 2018

A lunar eclipse occurs January 31, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 5:26 a.m. PST, 11 degrees 37 minutes Leo.

This lunar eclipse occurs in about two weeks, but three to four weeks before an eclipse and a few days after is roughly the window of time that eclipse-related issues manifest. Thus, avoid excessive risk during this period.

See this blog post for more information about limiting your overall risk during an eclipse.

Judgment tends to be faulty during eclipse periods, particularly during lunar eclipses. Be more cautious with important decisions, avoid hasty decisions and reckless behavior, and remember that things may not be quite as they appear.

A Common Error That Kills Objectivity

December 3rd, 2017
Share Button

Bias is one of the most common problematic personality traits.

The inability to make impartial decisions blocks professional success, and destroys personal relationships. It ranks right up there with other atrocious red-flag personality traits such as indecisiveness, dishonesty, vanity, volatile emotions, lack of analytical ability, and lack of discretion.

Bias comes in many forms, and almost everyone possesses some degree of intolerance, but few seem to recognize one of the key factors in the problem with partiality: the subconscious mind.

Being ignorant of or refusing to acknowledge the power of your subconscious mind as it relates to objectivity is one of the most common errors that kill fair-mindedness.

Your perception of others is obscured by your subconscious fears and defenses. The stronger your unconscious fears and defenses, the more likely you are to misread someone upon first meeting, and the longer it will take you to perceive clearly the person’s authentic character, including strengths and challenges.

Examples of subconscious fears include fear of success, fear of abandonment, fear of losing control, fear of failure, perfectionism, conflict avoidance, and timidity. Examples of subconscious defense mechanisms include defiance, excessive secretiveness, domineering behavior, evasiveness, and self-deception.

Aside from distinguishing indisputable facts, no matter how keen your rapid cognitive function, you are likely to see the person as you are, not as they are. Prejudice (almost nobody is exempt), in varying degrees, is a ubiquitous subconscious fear, no matter what a person tells you otherwise. The truth is, most people simply aren’t familiar with the innate fears and defenses hidden in their subconscious mind, which distort their judgment.

Again, everyone is capable of exhibiting bias to some degree, but a severely prejudiced person can be a significant problem in your personal or professional life. Yet troublesome characteristics on the other side of the spectrum, such as lacking a sense of discernment, excessive naiveté, and gullibility can be equally harmful.

One way to get an idea about the level of innate bias a person may have is to ask his or her opinion about a well-known celebrity or politician. Even better, focus on specific personality traits; ask the person if he or she thinks the celebrity is untrustworthy, for example, if you suspect your new acquaintance may be. Those who lack self-awareness tend to project their flaws onto others. Just keep in mind that being objective about the facts, such as someone already having admitted to wrongdoing, or having been found overwhelmingly guilty in a court of law, is a different matter.

Always keeping in mind the potent influence of your subconscious mind goes a long way in dealing with strife and other interpersonal issues in everyday life.

Besides spending years getting to know someone, a way to uncover authentic personality, beyond the persona, is conventional security investigations (e.g., hiring a private detective). Unconventional security investigations, including those I offer, involving handwriting analysis, are a reliable alternative.

Mercury retrograde, a problematic astrological event, occurs in less than three weeks.

Telltale complications include communication misunderstandings, more hindrances than usual involving new endeavors, and delays of all sorts. Be careful with momentous decisions, plans, and legal contracts because judgment tends to be a bit fuzzy.

You may find yourself revisiting the past; it’s a good time to develop solutions to on-going problems.

See this page for a thorough list of Mercury retrograde themes and a general timeline.

As mentioned in the linked information above, the approximate three-week period leading up to Mercury retrograde is usually more difficult than the actual retrograde period. 

Mercury retrograde December 2017 details:

  1. Mercury goes retrograde 12-2-2017 at 11:34 p.m. PST, 29 degrees 18 minutes Sagittarius.
  2. Mercury goes direct 12-22-2017 at 5:50 p.m. PST, 13 degrees Sagittarius.

The bar graph in this post includes the December 2017 Mercury retrograde period, along with other basic astrology events.

Paying attention to Mercury retrogrades throughout the year offers the opportunity to observe the cyclical nature of life, and you can also diminish the risk in your everyday life if you’re aware of the usual challenges.

Common Personality Traits That Kill Relationships

November 5th, 2017
Share Button

Everyone has his or her own unique personality talents and flaws. My findings show the primary characteristics are inborn.

It’s unfortunate that unconventional appraisal methods aren’t universally part of every young person’s schooling to discover and understand his or her key strengths and weaknesses.

Currently, everyone must discover his or her own personality through trial and error, or through conventional evaluation methods, which typically fail to uncover the authentic personality.

Below I list typical relationship personality red flag traits that wreck personal and professional relationships. I readily identify all subconscious personality traits listed below in my exclusive analyses.

Lack of a reasonable sense of discernment and critical analysis skills translates into the inability to identify and understand personality and relationship issues, and possibly naiveté and gullibility. Combine it with lack of objectivity and the person is likely to avoid taking responsibility for his or her actions. Dishonesty also complicates matters.

Emotional immaturity and, or volatility shows a lack of emotional development and security. He or she will act on emotions (instead of reason), to his or her detriment.

Impulsiveness, lack of control over urges, and recklessness yield poor decision-making, among other challenges.

Self-esteem and ego strength relates to the amount of self-approval and the ability to cope with rejection. Vanity, arrogance, and narcissism are signs of an unhealthy ego. A “big ego” is actually a weak ego.

Conflict avoidance results from a fear of friction in relationships and a fear of not being liked. It’s due to any number of subconscious defense mechanisms such as disassociation, evasiveness, rationalization, secrecy, self-deceit, and vanity.

Suspiciousness, or a fear of trusting people, along with withdrawal or emotionally drawing back, makes relationships an uphill battle.

Other common relationship red flag traits include fear of intimacy, self-consciousness, and fear of sex (or excessive interest in sex).

Personality challenges are more easily recognized under less than ideal circumstances, such as when the person is under a lot of pressure. You’ll only see the persona until something triggers the subconscious fears and defenses.

Knowing a person’s authentic personality gives you understanding, which can ease conflict. It can also greatly limit your overall level of risk.

Warning: Key Personality Traits Are Inborn

October 22nd, 2017
Share Button

The age-old debate rages on: are you born with your personality traits, or do they develop, mostly due to environment?

Ask any parent with multiple children if his or her kids all possessed blank slate personalities from the beginning and you’ll get a look of disbelief and be told all his or her kids were different from the start.

My findings agree with that notion; you are born with your main character traits, both rewarding and challenging.

It may sound “void of promise” to the idealists, but embracing this notion will save you an enormous amount of time because attempts to change another person’s principal character are futile. The core of your personality is carved in stone. It won’t change much, no matter how much effort you put into reinventing yourself. You can, however, learn to maximize your strengths and tone down your weaknesses within the boundaries of your personal fate.

Granted, early abuse by parents or others, for example, may contribute to one’s personality, such as deepening inherent fears and defenses, but it doesn’t change the person’s overall character.

My contention is supported by comprehensive astrology and numerology (based on time of birth data), which relentlessly outlines personal fate, and handwriting analysis, which discerns subconscious personality. Time and time again the latter parallels the former; personality always develops according to predetermination.

You’ve never known someone to change so much that you didn’t recognize his or her unique character because it simply doesn’t happen.

Self-discipline can lead to gradual, small changes, such as quitting bad habits or learning a new skill, but overall personality remains the same.

You can’t transform a reclusive loner into a social butterfly, a Neanderthal thug into a scholar, or one that needs operational structure and supervision into a solo-entrepreneur. Your true nature is fixed and doesn’t change much.

Although most humans can be spontaneous and changeable, each individual’s larger, unique personality framework makes them largely predictable.

Be grateful for who you are, and make every effort to make the most of it. But avoid trying to change other people because it’s pointless.

Instead, learn as much as you can about another’s character because with understanding comes contentment, and possibly a great reduction in your overall level of risk if he or she possesses major, hidden red flag personality traits.

The Great Compatibility Dilemma

October 8th, 2017
Share Button

Determining the degree of authentic compatibility between two people is, by conventional wisdom, only something you discover after it’s too late.

Whether it involves business or personal relationships, it takes months or even years to begin to understand the character of your partner.

More than thirty years ago I purchased an astrology profiler report, one of those advertised in New Age magazines in the 1980s. Upon reviewing it I sensed there was some validity to it, but that it was too general and imprecise to accurately represent genuine personality.

Since then, through obsessive analysis and empirical observation, I’ve developed a system of checks and balances that involves comprehensive astrology, numerology, and handwriting analysis to determine personality, compatibility, and the timing of personal fate.

Below I outline select key findings and tips to help you save time and avoid the mistakes I made.

  1. Report writing software and similar programs (including the software we currently sell) serve as decent introductions to astrology and numerology, but unfortunately, that’s all they do. All report writing software is based on Ptolemaic aspects (conjunction, square, trine, etc.), elements (fire, air, water, earth), connections between planets and houses, lunar and solar returns, and other elementary components of basic natal charts. It would take an army of programmers decades to write the code necessary for software that could begin to effectively outline character and timing like a seasoned analyst.
  2. Meditate regularly, without fail. Whether it’s to know the next best step to take, to understand another person better, or to figure out how to formulate your own systems of analysis, daily meditation is vital, even if it’s only 10 minutes.
  3. Consider motivations and personality red flags first, then compatibility. Once you know his or her motivations (e.g., money, ego, personal accomplishment, competition, creativity, etc.) and problem characteristics (e.g., evasiveness, narcissism, emotional volatility, emotional immaturity, domineering tendencies, defiance, etc.), determining compatibility is easier.
  4. Remember that everyone has his or her own unique personality challenges and strengths, and nobody is perfect.
  5. Nobody is perfectly honest all of the time. Various forms of dishonesty exist, but most dishonesty is harmless.
  6. Most people are not rational creatures. They always act emotionally and rationalize their behavior by offering logical reasons that aren’t the real reasons.
  7. Real personality traits emerge under pressure or stress. Do something challenging with your partner to get an idea of his or her authentic character. Long-distance travel is a good test, preferably involving heavy jet lag.
  8. The “unexplainable draw” (frequently at the start of the union) is often a good thing, but sometimes not in that it can unfortunately represent the magnetism necessary to learn some of life’s tough lessons.
  9. Everyone has his or her own unique karma, both rewarding and challenging, inside and outside of relationships, and the tough stuff can’t be erased with a magic wand. Personal fate is immutable.
  10. Compatibility isn’t a choice, it’s something two people innately possess, and each two-person connection is unique.
  11. If you spend more than half your energy boosting your sense of detachment and compassion trying to rise above the innately challenging energy of the partnership, you don’t have a satisfactory relationship.
  12. Collective personal timing is immensely important in regards to partnerships of all types. It can be a godsend, or an affliction.
  13. Nobody has perfect compatibility, no matter how harmonious it appears.
  14. Few people have fantastic compatibility that endures.
  15. Most people have mediocre compatibility.
  16. Regarding romantic compatibility, the vast majority of couples aren’t well suited enough to enjoy life-long, monogamous, mutual sexual compatibility. Pretending all is well in the bedroom is a universal pastime.
  17. Besides motivations, personality red flags, and personal timing and karma, mental, physical/sexual, intellectual, social, and emotional compatibility should be reviewed as well to get a good idea of the overall rapport.

You can learn a lot about compatibility by applying unconventional methods. Knowing how you match with another person can deepen your understanding and reduce your overall risk.
