When I say I’m an astrologer, most people don’t really know what the job entails, and that job varies from practitioner to practitioner. Let me tell you what I do.

I am a counselor, much like a regular counselor you’d see if there was a problem with your love life or your finances or your health or family. In many ways, it’s exactly that straightforward. Unlike most standard counselors, I don’t have to spend weeks or months fishing around for the finer details of your existence. I certainly don’t know EVERYTHING from looking at a birth chart, but it saves a tremendous amount of time that way. I took a lot of psych and counseling courses in college, and I find being an astrologer does a much better job of getting to the point and find real solutions than the standard counseling process.

With a birth chart in place, we can figure out fairly quickly, and in detail, exactly wh you are, where you’re at, and where you’re headed.

Here is what I DON’T do:

I don’t tell you what (if anything) God, the Universe, Karma, or whatever really wants from you, or why. I don’t feel it’s my place to expound on these things. A doctor can tell you to change your diet or exercise more or whatever… but your doctor certainly shouldn’t pass himself off as a divine, all-knowing sage. There are a lot of people in my line of work who come across this way. I’m not comfortable with that. If I was, I’d be a priest or a rabbi or something.

If your sink is clogged, your plumber may advise you to stop pouring bacon fat down the drain. If he spends 45 minutes first telling you about the bad karma you generated during a past life as a pig farmer in Atlantis, does that get the water flowing any faster?

I provide guidance and clarity and a context for life, plus an assessment of where things are going to go… both for yourself and for the others in your life.

Welcome aboard. I hope to see you come back soon. Heck, I might even make it worth your while.

(Oh, and one more thing: yes, I can see your future too…)

Finally... clear-cut directions from an astrologer!

Finally… clear-cut directions from an astrologer!

Knowing when the Moon Void of Course is happening is probably the handiest of all the common astrological techniques. Learn it, make it work for you, and save yourself tons of unnecessary aggravation!

Seriously: you want to see what REAL astrology can REALLY do? Start by learning about the Void of Course Moon and then avoid starting new projects or initiatives during that time and you’ll be amazed by the results. It’s just a shame that “Captain RarelyFails” is such an awkward name… because frankly I think you’d look great in a cape and tights.

(CLICK HERE for more on what The Void of Course Moon actually is, and what you can do about it — or rather, what you should avoid doing during that time. Looking for tips on handling those times when they happen? Click HERE.)

Note: Times are for time zone 5 hours West. DST is observed. Particularly long and annoying Voids are marked with **

Your introduction to Saturn in Sagittarius (and details for the other eleven Signs) is HERE. I’ll update it every three months or so, so keep coming back!

What’s in it for me?

“Saturn in Sagittarius” means that Saturn is now in your First House and will remain there until December 2017, and regardless of the transits it makes to individual points in your chart along the way, it will also have a general effect on the First House matters in your life, such as how you come across to people, how well you get along with others, and even how you look.

What kind of effect does Saturn usually have?

Saturn brings structure and order and discipline to your life, which are all good and necessary things. Unfortunately it has a bad reputation, because frankly most people love the idea of “structure and order” until it is imposed on them… like a home with a leaky roof that you keep patching and ignoring over and over again until the thing finally caves in on you one day. Listen to what The Universe is telling you needs repair or restoration or throwing out in your life, take action, and ultimately your life will be much better, and you will have avoided the roof falling on your head and smashing your collection of vintage Batman collectables.

But yeah: no one ever really calls Saturn “fun,” unless they are either being sarcastic or are hoping your roof collapses on you.

That sounds awful!

Not necessarily. Think of it this way: for the last fourteen years Saturn has been passing through all the Houses of your birth chart that deal with other people more than you yourself, strictly speaking. Like most folks, you’ve probably had mixed results that way, and a little “me time” is probably called for. Like, for example, “clearly no one else can save me from this mess, so it looks like it’s up to ME to do all the heavy lifting that will require.” You’ll benefit more than usual from self-discipline, and let’s be honest: if you’re a Sagittarius (like I am) or have Sagittarius Rising, you could probably stand a little self discipline.

So Saturn in Sagittarius might actually be good news for me?

Yes, if you respond to the challenges you’ll face in the departments of your life listed above with hard work, discipline, and a little faith in yourself and in The Universe in general.

Something to contemplate…

“I woke up in a Soho doorway
A policeman knew my name
He said “You can go sleep at home tonight
If you can get up and walk away”

I staggered back to the underground
And the breeze blew back my hair
I remember throwin’ punches around
And preachin’ from my chair”

That may sound like fun and all… but is that any way to live your best, most successful life?

Anything else?

Two things: first of all, don’t panic over this Saturn transit. It’s going to cover a two year period, and even if it makes trouble for you at times it’s not like every day of that period is going to stink. Secondly: no matter what House Saturn is passing through on your birth chart, you should always remember that the transits of all the planets, specific to your birth chart, is what will tell the whole story. That’s when it comes in handy knowing an astrologer who offers discounts to first-time clients. Just sayin’.

“Saturn in Sagittarius” means that Saturn is now in your Second House and will remain there until December 2017, and regardless of the transits it makes to individual points in your chart along the way, it will also have a general effect on the Second House matters in your life, such as money, material possession, and the more abstract concepts of “what you value in life” and “self esteem.”

That sounds awful!

It doesn’t have to be… in fact it can be pretty beneficial in the long run. How much time have you wasted on pursuits that have done you little or no good? Are you still spending your time and money with that Bowling League where no one is having fun any more? Do you really feel better for long after you buy something you don’t need or can’t afford, or is it a temporary buzz like a junkie getting a fix — and you could get something of real value if you just saved your money?

So Saturn in Sagittarius might actually be good news for me?

Yes, if you respond to the challenges you’ll face in the departments of your life listed above with hard work, discipline, and a little faith in yourself and in The Universe in general.

“She said ‘I’m sorry baby I’m leaving you tonight
I found someone new he’s waitin’ in the car outside’
Ah honey how could you do it
We swore each other everlasting love
She said well yeah I know but when
We did – there was one thing we weren’t
Really thinking of and that’s money”

Is your intrinsic value as a human being, both to yourself and others, based on your capacity to make money? How much more cash would it take for you to be satisfied… and are you willing to do what it takes to get it?
