Major Life Changes with Pluto Retrograde!

Pluto, the slowest-moving body of the zodiac, turns retrograde on April 9. But don't be fooled by Pluto's unhurried pace -- this planet is here to make major changes to your life!

Because it transits so slowly, Pluto's incredible power tends to act behind the scenes, rather than in your face. Its retrograde period, which will last until the middle of September, may not feel obvious, but it will definitely influence important aspects of your life.

As is typical of retrogrades, Pluto's will prompt you to turn your focus inward. After all, it's only when you've made deep internal shifts that you can successfully focus your attention on improving situations around you.

Keep in mind that Pluto won't ever let something come easily, so you've got your work cut out for you. Be persistent and focused.

Pluto will also help you purge yourself of all nonessentials, whether they be extra knick-knacks, unreasonable ambitions or even relationships that no longer work. Letting go of such things can be initially painful, but you'll be happier in the long run.

Adding to these challenges, energetic Mars moves to square Pluto on April 11. Mars's high-speed energy will clash with Pluto's slow and determined ways, and the only way to overcome this is with good, hard work.

While not necessarily fun and exuberant, these challenging aspects can result in great achievements -- if you're willing to put in the time and effort!

Good Luck and Good Fortune Await - Jupiter & Venus Turns Direct

On November 18, the two planets that represent good fortune, money and happiness -- Jupiter followed by Venus -- turn direct and the lessons that they have been trying to teach us in their retrograde periods of introspection are now ours to put into practice!
Jupiter turned retrograde in Aries on July 23 and moved into Pisces during its retrograde motion. It now turns direct in Pisces and will stay there until January 2011. This is, however, the last time until 2021 that Jupiter will be in Pisces, and there are significant lessons that this transit holds for us. When Jupiter is direct, the energy of the cosmos calls for renewed enthusiasm, and the time is ideal to put in a stronger sense of meaning and purpose in life and move onward with a revived sense of direction and sparkle. Jupiter gives us momentum to accomplish our goals and favors idealism, good luck, and financial success!

With Jupiter retrograde in Pisces, many of us may have been questioning our real values and priorities in life and what it is that is really important for us in life that we must gain or accomplish! Now that Jupiter turns direct, we have a chance to put into practice our new goals and philosophy of life. With Jupiter direct, there'll be more opportunities for outer expansion -- at work and with money. Good fortune should not be so hard to find and optimism should soar.

With Venus retrograde in Libra, the sign of one-to-one relationships, many of us may have felt a sense of failure in being unable to attain the kind of intimate emotional connection we are ideally seeking with a significant other in our lives -- regardless of the nature of the relationship -- other than this relationship is very central to our lives. This has been a period of introspection. But now the universe urges us to step out -- softer, wiser, more heart-centered and better equipped to fully embrace what life and relationships have to offer. This is a time to value your partners and romance will burn ever more brightly!

If You Think It…

“If you build it, they will come.” Little did I know back in the 80’s when I watched that film how relevant the phrase would be in my professional career. The concept of “manifestation” is becoming a conversational norm with entrepreneurs thanks to books and films like The Secret and What The Bleep Do We Know as well as iconic motivators like Tony Robbins. So what does this all mean? How do we manifest our wildest dreams?

The key message in quantum physics is this: thoughts materialize into reality. Now as a right-brain creative thinker, normally anything in the left-brain department leaves me a bit frazzled. But this concept has allowed me to achieve things in my life that had once seemed to be utterly impossible. So what is the key to all this? The idea is that anything we think and focus on has the possibility to become real. But if that’s the case wouldn’t we all be rich, healthy and in love?

The truth is, everyone has the ability to be a creator – we are all doing it every minute of every day. What happens is that most people are stuck in their habitual thought process, having the same thoughts over and over. It’s all about how each individual defines themselves in their mind – be it positive or negative, our convictions will manifest our reality.

Doubt is the decision NOT to participate! That is my daily mantra. Every day I am faced with situations and challenges that push me into the fear and doubt of not becoming a success and every time I make a conscious decision on how I’m going to take control over my destiny. How do I do this? Well truthfully, the more I see the results, the more I believe in my ability to live like a creator. I’ve been in situations where there was no possible way I was going to get what I wanted, where everyone around me was telling me to give up, but in the end I always prevail.

We will always be faced with two options in any challenge. The first one is to act from a doubtful perspective: “It wasn’t meant to be,” “I tried,” “I’m not sure,” “I can’t” etc. These thought patterns are challenges from our alter ego and can essentially lead to failure. The second option, with a strong foundation of belief, will attract the results that everyone dreams about. It’s participating in the Law of Attraction and changing your mental state. Basically it means, act the roll and that reality will reveal itself.

For some people this gift is very easy. We can see it in people like Donald Trump – he’s been bankrupt so many times over and still manages to be a BILLIONAIRE!! For some people it takes a lifetime just to get to a million! So how does he do that? Well, no matter what his situation is in life, in his mind he is always a billionaire and because of that money is just magnetically drawn to him.

We can all be like “The Donald, not only with money but in our personal lives as well. Just take a minute to digest this concept; all it takes is a thought, one thought, and a whole life can change. Whichever path we choose will ultimately be the path that manifests. My choice is to go forth without a doubt, and to believe that the world is indeed at my fingertips and true abundance is how I create it to be.

What Would You Do…

At the end of this blog post is a question – one you’ve been needing to ask yourself for years….

"You’re just a puppet of your new man.”

“You’re so insecure. All these changes are because you’re unhappy and need to cover it up.”

“Mom’s shouldn’t act or look that way…”

Would you believe it if I told you that these are remarks from FRIENDS of mine that have either been messaged to me directly or posted on some form of social media website over the past two months?

But far from deflating the winds from my sail, all I have taken from this sporadic onslaught of criticism is validation for what I’ve long believed… and was 100% true about myself not more than 12 months ago:

Women, Mom’s especially, live in shells.

We want so badly to do and be more, but we feel incapacitated by circumstance – so we simply resign and stay where we are.
And that makes it both convenient and easy to lash out at those of us who opt to swim against the current.
I got my first tattoo when I was 19 years old and have longed for more ever since.

I have always been more attracted to the models and celebrities of ‘edgy’ quality than the societal stigma of the blonde hair, blue eye cover pretty boys and girls.

I’ve long felt that children should be taught through experience and diversity. Varying cultures, sundry exposure to new things; the world as a classroom. Allow your children to see and know beyond what they experience everyday as a means to help them believe that the possibilities they have in front of them are endless and that dreaming in color is priceless. That buying them ‘stuff’ does not equate to love -but providing them experiences does.

I have taken photographs of ordinary things in unique ways for as long as I can remember – nature is my canvass.

I first started training for a fitness competition in my early-20’s, only to have it derailed by my first pregnancy.

I have been flirting with absolutely everything I am currently doing right now for a literal lifetime; acting on the dreams I’ve kept contained in my heart is the only change that’s come into my life.

And at this point, I don’t really know what my catalyst was.

The causative factor that compelled me to stand and take action rather than sit and dream.

Perhaps it was Brian.
An enigmatic free-spirit.
Wildly successful in everything he does.
Constantly pushing his limits to do more and see more.
Engrossed by the romance of what he can do with his life, rather than remaining idle and wishing himself a different set of circumstances.

Perhaps it was something or someone else.

Truthfully, I don’t care.

All I know is that my life has never been this complete, jovial or full of possibilities; the story of how I wiggled out of my own shell to emerge with the sun on my face and the wind driving my course is an indifferent one to me.

But I can tell you this…

Not so many months ago, I confronted myself with a question that sent shockwaves through my soul.
And if you’re prepared to stare reality in the face, I’d like you to ask yourself the same question.

People hide behind veils.

They pretend to be entirely content, but are so incredibly longing for more.

So later tonight or perhaps tomorrow morning, brace yourself, prepare to be honest in every way possible and ask yourself this question:

What Would I Do, If I Knew I Would Not Fail?

It’s time to start being candid and serious because the clock of your life is ticking…

Thinking Deeply About Purpose And Existence

If someone accidentally gets a cut, the white blood cells move hurriedly to fight the chances of a serious infection occurring, and a scab is eventually visible. The heart continuously beats, which keeps the human body living. Regardless of the extreme complexity of certain systems of the body, they are seamlessly kept operating as they carry out surprisingly precise duties.

The earth rotates around the sun and somehow the extreme heat does not cause destruction to the earth, because the distance between the two is far enough to prevent this from happening.

Was this all created by chance?

Both sides contain considerable viewpoints.

Based on the viewpoint of an atheist, infinite possibility is what caused this magnitude of complexity; it made this existence possible. This is so far the best argument I’ve heard from an Atheist’s perspective. Consider greatly absolute nothingness. Just actual nothingness. Couldn’t the possibility then be infinite referring to the least bit of anything happening, including something even very complex?

This exact thought, however, might be imaginary; just the attempt of someone who cannot fathom what goes on in the Universe to explain it away.

This extraordinary complexity could just be from a solid cause. That particular scenario would bring into question the origin(s) this cause stemmed from.

The Universe has laws that are absolute. Planets revolve around the sun, such complexity makes up the body, the growth of fruits and vegetables occur and we are protected from floating away due to the law of gravity. Do we consist of just having an “animal side”? Think about the possibility of “meaning” actually. Chances could be that we’re part of an evolutionary process involving our souls taking some time on the earth. Otherwise, we’ll just eventually end up in eternal unconsciousness, no matter which sort of lives we had. What is the actual possible purpose of our existence, and why?
