BARACK OBAMA'S CHALLENGING YEAR AHEAD
POSTED BY BEVERLEE, Wednesday, January 28, 2009
We are all too well aware of the challenges that face Barack Obama as he assumes the responsibilities of the office of President of the United States during this perilous time in American history. He faces the threat of terrorism, conflicting views about our involvement in foreign wars, and the deplorable state of the world's economic situation. I have posted Obama's TimeLine Report, so that you may judge for yourself what he will be up against, astrologically speaking, during the next year. Read it here.
GOVERNOR ROD BLAGOJEVICH’S IMPEACHMENT TRIAL
POSTED BY BEVERLEE, Monday, January 26, 2009
I rarely say things like this, (at least publicly!) but this guy is a piece of work! Blame it on his Fire Grand Trine, which obviously leads Governor Blagojevich to believe that he’s God’s gift to the world…to use a cliché. Grand Trines are wonderful up until the point where they lead their owners to indulge in excess...the point the Governor has long-since reached and passed. And what a crybaby poor Rod is when he doesn’t get his way…taking to the airwaves to defend his position! "Poor me! I can't get a fair trial!" Well, I’ve got news for him. Today’s Solar Eclipse is not having any of it. At 6 degrees of Aquarius, it exactly opposes his natal Uranus while transiting Uranus conjoins his Solar 1st House Pisces Moon. Furthermore, transiting Pluto conjoins his Solar 10th House natal Mercury and progressed Midheaven Midpoint while exactly squaring his natal Mars. That’s a lot of negative energy. So he can whine and complain and accuse others for his dilemma all he wants to, but I doubt that it’s going to work in his favor because the stars are pointing to his own chart placing the blame for his problems right where it belongs.
End of rant!

HUDSON RIVER HERO, SULLENBERGER
POSTED BY BEVERLEE, Saturday, January 24, 2009
Yesterday was the 58th birthday of Chester “Sully” Sullenberger, the US Airways pilot who glided Flight 1549 to an emergency landing in the Hudson river on January 15th after both of the plane's engines were disabled following a collision with a flock of birds. As we know, all 155 passengers and crew members were miraculously rescued.
There is absolutely no question but that “Sully”, as he is known, was born for this dramatic moment in history. On the day of his heroic handling of the very dangerous, potentially lethal situation, transiting Jupiter was exactly on his natal 2 degree Aquarius Sun in his Solar 10th house, exactly trining his natal Saturn in his Solar 6th house of service.
Uranus, the purveyor of “suddenness”, the ruler of Sully’s Aquarius Sun, was by transit exactly on his North Node—the point in one’s chart that dictates what we were born to accomplish! Furthermore, his progressed ascendant is at 6 degrees of Cancer exactly conjoining his natal Uranus—ruler of his Sun. The transiting Moon was at 22 degrees of Virgo, exactly conjoining his progressed Moon and exactly opposing his progressed Midheaven. Progressions, remember, point out the potential for any moment in time, as Sully’s progressions so eloquently demonstrate.
At the time of the crash into the Hudson, the Moon had just passed over transiting Saturn, the planet of responsibility, accentuating the serious nature of this moment. Responsibility is no stranger to this heroic pilot. Since his own Saturn is precisely trining his Sun, he’s completely comfortable with assuming responsibility. Furthermore, his Saturn is the focal planet in the dynamic T-square formation, squaring both his Mercury and his Uranus. A very important planet in his chart, the Saturn placement came to the rescue of the 155 passengers aboard Flight 1549 that fateful day in January.
We reap the rewards for our efforts at our Saturn Returns. Sully will experience his second Saturn Return on November 21st, 2009. Jupiter will be exactly conjuncting his natal 10th house Venus at the same time. I think we may reasonably expect to learn of a book, movie, or perhaps a television special celebrating his spectacular Hudson River feat either in the works or already produced at that time. Emphasizing the importance of Solar Eclipses, we find that the Eclipse of January 26th at 6 degrees of Aquarius, falls in Sully’s 10th house of career and destiny, close to his natal Sun, along with Jupiter, the ruler of the Eclipse, by virtue of its proximity the the Sun/Moon. Transiting Mercury and Mars, at the time of the Eclipse, are straddling Sully’s Midheaven. Once more, we can observe evidence that the energy of Solar Eclipses frequently manifests before the actual Eclipse. Eclipses to one’s Sun are said to change one’s life. This is certainly the case with our Hudson River hero, Chester “Sully” Sullenberger.
CAROLINE KENNEDY’S ABORTED SENATE BID
POSTED BY BEVERLEE, Thursday, January 22, 2009
The January 26th Solar Eclipse has already had its effect on Caroline Kennedy, as she has withdrawn her bid to occupy Hillary Clinton's vacated Senate seat. The Eclipse falls in her Second House of Values and Feelings of Self Worth, with Mars also conjoining her natal Venus posited in that house. It is worth noticing that while she appeared eager back in December to pursue this office, with Mars moving through her First House conjunct her natal Sun/Mercury, there were also stressful aspects with Saturn squaring her Ascendant/Mercury. This aspect evidently proved fatal, as she was quickly derided for her lack of experience and for not being forthcoming about her finances. Transiting Uranus also undermined her prospects as it squared both her natal Saturn and her Ascendant (the way others perceive us). Mea Culpa…I failed to take these negatives into account when I alone pronounced her the next Senator from New York! Speaking of the upcoming Solar Eclipse, I’ve had an email from my favorite astrologer, Michele Adler, author of my favorite astrology book, “PREDICTIVE ASTROLOGY, Cycles of Changes, Seasons of Meaning”. She has posted a very interesting blog about the degree of the upcoming Solar Eclipse. You may read it here. By the way, there's still ample time for you to benefit from having a personalized Solar Eclipse Reading done! A word to the wise is sufficient! It is interesting to observe that the "Trickster", Mercury, while retrograde, played one of his insidious tricks during the Inauguration of President Obama, having a laugh at his expense by causing him, after flubbing the oath the first time, to take it again, just to be on the safe side. With Mercury Retrograde, the Moon-Void-of-course, and his inauguration having taken place in the shadow of the upcoming Solar Eclipse, he’s wise to take every precaution possible in an attempt to offset these rather formidable planetary alignments at the time of his assuming the office of President. By the way, have you heard that a UFO passed by the scene of the Inauguration?
SENATOR KENNEDY’S PROGNOSIS
POSTED BY BEVERLEE, Tuesday, January 20, 2009
I may, of course, be mistaken in the assessment I am about to make based solely on astrological principles; however, I have to confess that I harbor some grave concerns about the state of Senator Edward Kennedy's health and even question whether he will survive to celebrate his next birthday on February 21st.
My reasoning is based on three factors:
First, his seizure today while attending the Inaugural luncheon comes as Mars has entered his First House—representing the body. Mars is often the trigger that brings events to fulfillment.
Second, the January 26th Solar Eclipse also falls in his First House, with Mars coming to a closer opposition to the Planet of Death—Pluto—in his Seventh House and with Mercury retrograding back to also oppose his Pluto. Also, transiting Uranus is exactly inconjunct his natal Pluto; inconjunctions to one’s chart are frequently present at the time of death. Further, at the time of the January 26th Solar Eclipse, transiting Pluto will be at 2 degrees of Capricorn, exactly opposing his secondary progressed Venus.
Third, and foremost, in viewing Senator Kennedy’s most recent Solar Return, I find that Saturn opposed his natal Sun from across the 2nd/8th axis of death. When analyzing Solar Returns, I assign each house to a month of the ensuing year, starting at the ascendant. Using this technique brings us today to the Twelfth House cusp of Kennedy's Solar Return Chart, and we find Mars posited there.
It takes more than one indication in astrology to be able to make an accurate prediction of the probable outcome of a situation. However, at the very least I can say with certainty that, given these challenges to his Birthchart and Solar Return Chart, Senator Kennedy's condition will suffer accordingly. We shall have to wait to see whether, in this instance, these astrogical principles prove to be accurate predictors. In the meantime, let us join in prayer for Senator Kennedy's well-being.

MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE TODAY
POSTED BY BEVERLEE, Sunday, January 11, 2009
The chart for the moment when Mercury begins its backwards trek is a
very dramatic picture of our ability to get in touch with our uniqueness
and what it means to the collective…society as a whole. So during this
three-week period I invite you to ask yourself how practical are your
personal goals, especially with regard to what the public wants and
needs at this stage of its development? As you ponder this question you
may find yourself coming up with some surprising answers. In fact,
you'd better, because your feelings of self-worth as well as your future
security may very well depend on what you discover during this
Ask yourself what you have to offer that the public wants. How is it
different, unique? What breakthrough does it offer? In other words, how
can you make a difference? C'mon! You know you've got an original idea
that you'd love to get off the ground! What is it? Now is the time to go
for it and present your idea to those who are in a position to help
you. In fact, you may actually persuade someone to invest in your idea!
Your powers of persuasion are in top form during this period.
Sure, with Mercury retrograding, you may very well have to iron out some
wrinkles in your plan after January 31st when Mercury goes
direct. But this is definitely the time for re-examining your gifts,
your ingenuity. Wouldn't it be exciting to bring this idea out of the
closet and put it on the drawing board? That's what this time is all
about. Think of this as the first draft of your dream. Then visualize
its success! Project your idea to the Universe. Believe me, the Universe
If you think my assessment of this Mercury Retrograde period is too
far-fetched, or over-optimistic I suggest you watch the Evening News to
see what the new administration in Washington undertakes to accomplish
during this timeframe. Not all of their proposals will fly, of course,
but it's the time to test them for merit...with regard to public
acceptance. Barack Obama is our new mirror, reflecting what each of us
wants, hopes and needs to accomplish at this moment in history. It's a
time of bold ventures, I assure you. Are you willing to participate?
That's what the planetary energy is asking you to consider…and to
reconsider at this time.
Of course, you don't have to follow your bliss. But think of your role
this way: each of us…every person in the world…is but one piece of a
giant jigsaw puzzle that spans the earth. Each part of a puzzle plays
its own important role, contributing to the whole picture. What if
you…or I…or John Doe down the street decide that we don't want to play
our part in that puzzle? What if we simply refuse to participate? Well,
then, there's a hole in the fabric of society, that's all.
But if not, why not? If not you, who? If not now, when? There'll never
be a better time for you to shine and at the same time serve. Those two
concepts are irrevocably bound up in the energy of this moment. The
challenge and the responsibility are yours to accept, or not.
In closing, let me again invite--no urge--you to order your personal Retrograde Report. This enlightening report begins at the new year and tells you exactly what each retrograding planet will mean for you the entire year ahead. Click here to learn more.
NEW YEAR'S TAROT MEDITATION
POSTED BY BEVERLEE, Sunday, January 11, 2009
As one year comes to a close one cycle ends and another cycle begins to unfold. So I'm pleased to share with you a ritual to perform as you mark the passing of 2008 and the beginning of 2009. This New Year's Tarot Meditation was introduced to me by the late astrologer Buz Meyers.
To begin, find a quiet spot where you will not be disturbed, seat yourself comfortably and take a deep breath. Now just exhale the year that is ending. Better yet, take in a deep breath for each month and exhale the closing year a month at a time. While you are exhaling, you might like to visualize a calendar and its pages—starting with January—being exhaled out into the Universe. If there is something special that you want to let go of that occurred in one of these months, visualize it moving away from you off into the distance and into the Universe, leaving you forever.
When you complete this visualization you should be feeling much lighter and ready to prepare for the beautiful New Year that awaits you. Now you're ready to begin the Tarot Meditation that will reveal your expectations, wishes and possibilities for the New Year.
This Tarot Meditation is designed to correspond to the Lunar Phases with which we have worked together over the past few years. You'll begin by shuffling your Tarot Deck to imbue it with your energy. Then you're going to cut the deck towards you with your left hand and draw nine cards.
The first card you draw will be the Creator. Place it in the center of the circle. This card symbolizes your highest potential for the coming year. It shows how you will be connected to your "Great I Am" throughout the year.
The second card you draw represents you and the new beginnings you are committed to making in the coming year. You may use this card for visualization for the entire year because it symbolizes what you are in the process of becoming. This card also symbolizes the New Moon—beginnings. Place this card in the Eastern part of your circle.
The third card you draw represents what you must build and work on in the coming year in order to be successful. It correlates to the Crescent Phase. Place this card in the South Eastern part of the circle.
The fourth card represents what you have to step out and try in the New Year so that you will feel like you are doing something that is expressing your individuality. It symbolizes the First Quarter Phase of the Moon. Place this card in the Southern part of the circle.
The fifth card represents your inner child and what it is seeking in the way of creativity and fun for the New Year. This card can also have a great deal to do with your work and how you plan to make it a pleasurable experience. It embodies the Gibbous Phase of the Moon. Place this card in the South Western part of the circle.
The sixth card you draw represents your shadow issue and what you must learn this year in order to have a good relationship with others. It also represents the Full Phase of the Cycle. Place this card in the Western part of the wheel.
The seventh card represents what you have to give out unconditionally all year long in order to stay in balance and receive abundance. This ties in with the Disseminating Phase. Place this card in the North Western part of the wheel.
The eighth card represents your power for the New Year. This is your goal—what you can achieve when all of the other cards are balanced. This corresponds to the Last Quarter Phase of the Cycle. Place this card in the Northern position of the wheel.
The ninth card represents what you will be letting go of in the New Year. It also symbolizes the part of you that needs rest and healing. This is your spiritual program for the New Year. You can think of it as your retreat card. It's similar to the Balsamic Phase of the Moon. Place it in the North East position in the wheel.
Now it's time to read the descriptions for each of the cards you have drawn in the book or booklet that accompanies your Tarot Deck. You will be amazed by how they describe what's going on with you both on an inner and outer level. Write down the description for each of the cards you have drawn. You will want to refer to them during the year to see whether you are on track with the Grand Design of your life, because each of them mirrors your intention for the coming year.
I wish each of you the blessings of good health, love, and prosperity in 2009!

I am amused—although not surprised—to discover that sex definitely rules the world as has been all too graphically pointed out to me. If you’re wondering how I arrived at this penetrating conclusion, I'm afraid I have to confess that I’ve been eavesdropping.
Yes, it's true. As I was surfing the 'Net the other day, and just happening by chance to pass near my own website, I overheard a spirited discussion taking place amongst the Jupiter Return, and Star Lady Speaks pages. The Astrological Humor page was positively chortling as he announced:
- HUMOR: (Triumphantly) Hey, I guess you guys heard that I got the most hits during 2008 and you two came in only second and third!
- STAR LADY: (Nervously) Who was second?
- JUPITER: (Preening) You mean….I got the second most hits?
- STAR LADY: (Condescendingly, well, actually, huffily): Hmmph! I suppose it was that silly thing you tell on your page—“What Each Sign Says After Sex” that brought the surfers there!
- HUMOR: Well, yeah...that's what they clicked on first. You got a problem with that?
- STAR LADY: (Piqued) Don’t be ridiculous! If that’s what people prefer, so be it.
- JUPITER: (Encouraged) And I guess they visit my page hoping to learn what good fortune I’ll bring them.
- STAR LADY: If they paid more attention to me, they’d discover that you, Jupiter, don’t only bring good fortune! You also bring over-indulgence, obesity….
- HUMOR: Oh, for heaven's sake, chill, will you, Star Lady? Third place is nothing to be ashamed of, you know.
- JUPITER: Humor's right Star Lady. Maybe if you lightened up a little, you’d score better in 2009?
- STAR LADY: Hmm, I daresay you’re right, Jupiter. 2008, you have to admit, was a pretty grim year what with all the negative sparring leading up to the Presidential election and the deplorable financial crisis and….
I surfed off quietly, having heard enough, and hoping that 2009 will provide more occasion for Star Lady to lighten up!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
POSTED BY BEVERLEE, Thursday, January 1, 2009
Happy New Year, everyone! Can you believe it’s that time of year again….how did it arrive so fast? Are you wondering that, too? I want to wish you a productive and joyful year filled with blessings for you and your loved ones.
I also want to ask you a personal question: Have you decided what this brand new year is going to be about in terms of improving your life? You know, we do seem to think about what is either working or not working in our lives at this time of year, don’t we? Which, of course, is why we make New Year’s Resolutions. Well, perhaps you already know what course you want to set for yourself in 2009 and……perhaps you don’t! Or, you may think you know, but actually you don’t. Let me explain: Your conscious mind and your subconscious mind may not be in alignment. Have you ever experienced a disappointment by over-estimating your potential before setting forth in any endeavor? Yes? Yeah, me, too!
That is why I have created a remarkably enlightening and absolutely original technique for getting in touch with our subconscious mind. You will find this technique offered no where else It’s called Beverlee’s Words/Numbers Analysis, and believe me, this analysis takes you instantly to the depths of your being. Even if you have already had me do this analysis for you, this is a technique you can use at any time, just as often as you wish to discover your inner truth! And what better time than a brand new year? Learn more about this unique analysis or place your order here.
I have also been thinking about which of my astrological services might be the best choices for you to consider ordering as the new year begins. Calendars, of course, are always at the top of any "gotta have" list at the new year.
My Personal Astrological Calendars guide you through your year in a reassuring way, pointing out in minute detail when the aspects to your birth chart favor you and when they challenge you. You will have at your fingertips your own "Void-of-Course" Moon periods to prevent you making mistakes about setting up appointmnts and going shopping! You'll not only discover which transits are in effect on a daily basis, but also which progressions and Solar Arc Directions are affecting your chart—all color-coded for quick recognition. You may place your order here. The Personal Weekly Planner includes all this and goes a step further, showing you the transits to your birthchart broken down hour-by-hour for every day of the year, and also provides space for you to jot down your appointments and personal notes. You may place your order here. It’s important to order the Personal Retrograde Report at the beginning of the year, since it’s designed to show you each planet’s stationary retrograde and stationary direct date for an entire year, as well as where these stations fall in your birthchart. Paragraphs detail each retrograde planet’s influence on you to help you understand when to pause and take a deep breath and when to move forward again for the most favorable results. You may place your order here.
With any order you place for any Calendar, you will also receive an Astrological Symbols Chart to ensure that you understand all the symbols in your calendar.
It’s also advantageous to have your Life Progressions Report done at the beginning of the year. In minute detail, this report outlines the aspects your progressed planets are making to other progressed planets, as well as the aspects they are making to your natal planets. The progressed chart brings to fruition the promises of the natal chart. Best of all, the report covers not one, but two years of your life. Learn more or place your order here. In addition to the Personal Astrological Calendars I can highly recommend two other excellent forecasting reports. The first—the Personal Forecast Report—is comprised of over two-hundred pages, detailing the aspects to your natal chart of every planet. Your Personalized Forecast Report analyzes every single aspect to your natal chart for an entire year! This is an extremely detailed report. You'll not only discover the effects of the transiting planets to your personal chart, but you'll also learn the influences of your Secondary Progressions and Solar Arc Directions, where applicable. Included are the dates when planets turn retrograde and which houses and planets in your natal chart will be affected by the retrograding planets. This comprehensive Forecast Report is like having four astrology reports in one! Learn more or place your order here.
And my newest Report: Your TimeLine Report presents you with an all-encompassing variety of forecasting techniques. With your TimeLine Report you will receive an explanation of not only the current transits to your birthchart but an analysis of your current progressions and Solar Arc Directions if any are in effect for the duration of your TimeLine Report. You will also learn how the current Solar and Lunar Eclipse Cycles affect your personal Birthchart. Now you can zero in on your coming opportunities as you discover when transiting planets change signs and enter new houses in your Birthchart.
Your TimeLine Report skillfully weighs and balances different factors objectively to produce an analysis of what’s going on with you with astounding accuracy. I can produce your TimeLine Report for three-, six- or twelve-month periods. Learn more or place your order here.
In closing, I want to thank those of you who regularly visit my website and have stayed with me througout this past turbulent and troubling year. Again, I wish you and your loved ones bountiful blessings in the coming year.
I embrace each of you with love and light!
