Bye-Bye, Business As Usual

Change is an everyday part of life. Those who refuse to change eventually discover that the world is not the same no matter how they try to make it so.

Embracing change and choosing those changes you prefer gives you a say in how things will be, going forward.

Pluto, the evolutionary planet of transformation, investment, banking, covert deals and hidden agendas, is moving very slowly through Capricorn, (business, government, professionals and authority figures of all kinds). Capricorn natives generally prefer to own only the best and highest quality that money can buy and are often willing to go without until they can afford to have what they want. The world is transforming its relationship to all the things and people born under Capricorn’s rule, purging out the toxic residue of what has been “business as usual” and creating fresh potentials for regeneration and evolution.

On July 7th, there was a Lunar eclipse in Capricorn, which acts as a cosmic power-booster in a sign. Unexpected events are likely for those who are Capricorn, Cancer. Aries or Libra in the weeks and months to come. Shocking news headlines are likely to continue. Who needs movies when life is serving up drama like this?

The climate is ripe for creating new business opportunities that would not have been possible even six months ago. If you have a business, look at ways to do upgrades, remodel, retool, consider other applications for what you do and, above all, purge out anything that is not working. If it is not working for you now, it will not work better next year.

Especially if your business is transformational in nature, people will be looking for your services. I recommend doing what you can to see that your website and marketing tools are current and that your information is easy for anyone searching for what you do, to find.


Pluto, Pisces, Aquarius and More Aquarius

04160821Currently, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, the North Node, Chiron and Neptune are all in Aquarius. The Sun is approaching Uranus in Pisces. And Pluto is just getting started in Capricorn. If there were ever a time when extraordinary things were likely, this is it. Over half of the planets of the zodiac are in the signs ruled by the impersonal, anti-grounded signs ruled by the outer planets. True, Capricorn will bring us back to Earth, but Pluto is moving through early Capricorn like a cosmic roto-rooter unearthing all manner of unhealthy government and business practice and procedure. The good news is that Pluto is about transformation. Skeletons and secrets that were buried or kept in vaults or behind boardroom doors are being uncovered and will now be changed in ways that allow for evolution, rather than continuing to poison the ground water from which we all drink.

This ongoing, major line-up of energies in Aquarius, the sign of humanity, invention, technology, revolution, genius and the one who walks to the beat of his/her own drum is opening and offering all manner of fresh opportunity. It may take a while before they become apparent, but rest assured, in this energetic climate, opportunities abound. I like to think of that famously Aquarian drum as the heart. What better beat could there be for keeping pace and passing the time of our lives?

This time is ripe with fresh potentials that were never before possible. If you have been paddling upstream trying to get somewhere you were before, you might want to consider turning your canoe around. We are in the middle of the rapids and there is no going back to where we were even one short year ago.

The evolutionary wheel has turned and the revolution has begun. Things will continue to change. If we choose to make changes based on our vision of what is possible rather than by of our fear of the unknown we will see that we are far from powerless. We are, in fact, powerful beyond measure. What if you let the beauty of what you love be your point of focus?
