The Best Of "Conquer The Universe With Astrology"!

(Click HERE for details on readings, including the incredible special in association with two astrologers for the price of one!)

Before there was “Love And Sex In The Stars,” there was a little handcrafted astrology show on Blogtalkradio called “Conquer The Universe With Astrology”… not coincidentally named after my book. And a mighty show it was… many of astrology’s leading lights dropped by, we had fun, we learned things, and only a few bones were broken along the way.

Some astrology shows have a short shelf life — who cares about last year’s transits? But listed below are a selection of some of the best of “Conquer The Universe With Astrology” that are as fresh as today’s delivery of melons. Sweet, delicious, educational, informative, funny, astrological melons. If you haven’t had a listen before… pick something below and give it a try. If you heard the show before, there’s bound to be something you missed the first time out.

The Daily Sky: Mars In Gemini Runs With Scissors

All of a sudden… he realized that everything seemed fresh and new.

A world of possibilities had suddenly opened. No longer did the plodding, deliberative energy of Mars in Taurus rule the drives. There was a world to be confronted! A life to be lived! Challenges to be overcome! All the old obstacles could be overcome by an incoming wave of promise and optimism and good cheer.

He stretched his arms out towards the sky, and joyfully shouted “Look out world, here I come! Woo hoo!”

No one could talk him out of it. Not common sense, not fear of the unknown, and above all… certainly not his astrologer, off in the distance, shouting “Look out! That Mars is square Neptune, and it may be affecting your judgment!”

He ignored the barely-heard warning and began to run… run as he never had before… his arms outstretched and waving to everyone he passed, as the sunlight turned into glimmering Beacons Of Hope as they bounced off the freshly-sharpened blades of his favorite scissors.

Why Consult An Astrologer?

I’ve noticed recently that there’s a lot of astrology out there on the Internet, and a lot of astrologers… but surprisingly little about what an astrologer can do for you. I’d like to help correct that.

First of all, here’s something about why I am an astrologer — but the short version is this: I was a counselor. I wanted to help people, and astrology cut through the nonsense and got to the answers and to the results faster than anything I learned in college.

You can come to an astrologer out of either general curiosity, or specific needs. Curiosity is great — it is the best way to uncover issues and options you didn’t even know you had. Part of success in life is taking the right action… but another part is asking the right questions. Another component is self-knowledge, and few things in life can help with that better than an outside perspective.

Caring help, facing down and de-constructing obstacles, and self-knowledge… great. But about what, specifically? In short: pretty much anything.

Many of us face dissatisfaction with material life. Am I on the right career path? Where do I even find a career path? How can I increase business opportunities? Where do I look for a job? How do I get my expenses under control? When is a good time to start my own business? When is a good time to leave my job? Yes, I can help you with those questions.

Then there are the connections we form with others. Why do I feel isolated? Why is my partner being the way he/she has been lately? Why don’t I have a love life at all? How can I handle these concerns about my family? And so on. I can help you with those issues too. In fact, I’ve got a Two Astrologer Special going on about that right now

So: Love and material security. Pretty good so far, dontcha think? And that’s without mentioning any of the other things an astrologer like myself can help you with, like:

What can I do to be healthier? What is my spiritual path through life? What’s going on with my pets? When’s a good time to get a makeover? Where can I find the right social circle? What’s going on with my sexuality? Should I go back to school, and when, and how? Is there something I’m supposed to be doing with my life that I’m not?

Like I said before: I can help you with pretty much anything. Drop me a line and find out more.

When You Wish Upon A Partial Lunar Eclipse

Let’s not panic now, shall we? Let’s take a breath, calm down… and maybe even celebrate a little.

As I am writing this the Moon is approach the exact point where the lunar eclipse will happen… 4 degrees Sagittarius, with the Sun opposite that, and Neptune squaring them both from 5 degrees Pisces.

“Oh! A square you say? That sounds awful!”

Well… not really. Neptune may be the bringer of dreaminess and delusion, sure… but have you looked around at the world lately? Have you looked at your own life? Maybe a little more dreaminess is required. Maybe a little more Faith. Maybe a little more Hope.

I myself remain optimistic, about today and the future in general. And if sometimes things get confusing, or seem dark, or maybe you need a guide to lead you out of the woods of your love life (or lack thereof)… fear not. As Martin Luther King Jr said: “I have not lost faith. I’m not in despair, because I know that there is a moral order. I haven’t lost faith, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

So find those points in your chart where the eclipse is happening, and know that the unexpected can happen… it always does, eventually… and sometimes the unexpected can be very, very good. Look at those parts of your life that need changing, and know that with a little luck, a little support, and some hard work, things can be okay. Then they can be better than okay.

The Daily Sky: Lunar Eclipse in Gemini/Sagittarius

The Universe is watching.

And here you thought all along you were a lone wolf, an independent agent, the master of Free Will. Little did you know that the Universe, teeming and pulsing all around you, has A Plan.

Sure, you  know all about “karma” and you’ve done your best to be nice to children and small animals and not under-tip and cover your sneeze and not kill anyone. Sure. You’ve got all that in the bank, karma-wise. Even so — you never know when The Universe is going to throw a bong out a window at you, resulting in a little non-voluntary time in a facility for someone who has gotten away with too much for too long.

It may not happen today. It may not happen tomorrow. But the groundwork has been set, and 4 degrees Gemini and Sagittarius point to where in your chart it will be unleashed.

Now, that may mean you’re going to need guidance with your love life, whatever shape it may be in. You might win the lottery… or lose your shirt. So brace yourself. Expect the unexpected. Somewhere, something has started ticking. Who knows? It could be an antique clock given as a surprise gift, wrapped in a big bow… and maybe it’s a simple kitchen timer, wired to a few sticks of dynamite.

Either way, The Universe is watching. Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock…

Ninety years without slumbering,
Tick tock, tick tock.
Ninety years numbering,
Tick tock, tick tock.
But it stopped, short, never to run again
When the old man died.

Astrology And The Quest For True Love

Much of human existence seems to be based on the ancient drive to find and/or keep a mate. Modern living doesn’t really make it that much easier to fulfill that quest, though: The Internet has increased your options, but that doesn’t make it quicker to find your Prince/Princess Charming. There IS someone for everyone… but sometimes having a bigger river to pan for gold in doesn’t always get you the nugget you’re seeking.

Sometimes we find someone to be in a relationship with, and everything is fantastic… for a while. Even the best relationships can hit a rough spot, and sometimes it turns out the person we love isn’t really who or what we thought. It’s easy to think “Was I wrong about you then, or am I wrong about you now?”

Then of course, for many there’s always the question of “why am I alone, when so-and-so is a total doofus and gets all kinds of Love?”

Whichever situation you’re facing: there is help.

Aliza of and I are pleased to offer you a special consultation package designed to make your love life better and happier, and for a special price… because we happen to think Love is great, and we’d like to see you all have as much of it as possible. We call it our “Summer Lovin’ Special,” and you can read all about it right HERE. 

Take a minute to read it over and think about it. You just may have the world to gain from it. Well, okay… you may have Love to gain from it, and if you have that, the rest of your world may well seem to take care of itself.

DEAR EDNA: “Do Virgos keep score? I find that I have a tendency to keep track of every little thing, money-wise, and it’s starting to make me feel crazy. Is this a normal Virgo thing, or do I have some sort of issue?”

Oh, and laughs. There Will Be Laughs.

Let An Astrologer Be Your Bounty Hunter D’Amour!

The Moon is in Libra as I write this. Maybe that’s why “relationships” are on my mind. Many of you don’t need a lunar excuse to be pondering the state of your love life, no matter what shape it may be in. Sure… you could put up with the current circumstances of your love life. You could carry on wondering what the real story is, or if there’s a story at all, or even why there’s nothing happening. But you know… you don’t have to go on in the dark with it.

An Astrologer can help you:

Catch that Aries! Get that Taurus back in your pasture! Handle both sides of that Gemini at once! Get into that Cancer’s shell! Tame that Leo! Prove your data to Virgo! Get that Scorpio back in his jar! Rope and ride that Sagittarius! Get that Capricorn back on YOUR mountain top! Convince that Aquarius to land on your planet! Toss a net on that Pisces!

Okay, I know, I’m being over-dramatic here. But hey… what’s Love without a little drama? Besides: if your love life is confusion or puzzling or dissatisfying or just flat-out lame… even if it’s good and you just want to make it better… a reading from an astrologer can help.

And what’s even better than an astrologer providing guidance for you and your love life? TWO astrologers! Aliza from and I have joined forces to present The Summer Lovin’ Astrology Special: Seeing Love From Both Sides… two viewpoints, two readings, one great price… and a whole lot of understanding and solutions for you.
