When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed into an actual physical or mental state. Sivananda

The pure impulse of dynamic creation is formless; and being formless, the creation it gives rise to can assume any and every form. Kabbalah

The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul. The Bible

Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way. Abraham Lincoln

Plant the seed of desire in your mind and it forms a nucleus with power to attract to itself everything needed for its fulfillment. Robert Collier

Speak of the devil and he appears. Arabic Proverb

It would not be better if things happened to men just as they wish. Heraclitus

Nature is a revelation of god; art is a revelation of man. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

September’s new Moon, occurring on the 28th in the US, and, the 29th in Australia, brings with it a fabulous message of creating your reality, creating your world, your vision. The Sabian Symbol is one of turning your thoughts, hopes and dreams into reality (into CONCRETE FORM), and, it has the added bonus of being the last degree of the Super Galactic Center, which means that it’s the culminating Symbol in the SGC, the orb of which spans from Virgo 29 to Libra 6 (this is from my own research, I have not heard anyone else speak of it). When the SGC is highlighted, as it is at this new Moon, it brings the possibility of an increased ability to create your vision, your desires, to formulate what it is that you want to see in your world.

The following is a short newsletter, and, an explanation of what happened with the newsletter and the site (memberships and astrology software).

The following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom


Commentary: ‘A Man Watches His Ideals Taking a Concrete Form Before His Inner Vision’. This person has had the knowledge or insight to know what he wants, or what he wishes to accomplish, and it is now materializing in front of him—it is ‘Taking a Concrete Form Before His Inner Vision’. As the ‘Vision’ unfolds, so do the things that he’s wanted. He will see, realize and understand that dreaming of and working on future possibilities often does indeed, in time, bring them into current realities.

Oracle: This is a good time to visualize your needs, wants, thoughts and feelings. In the situation facing you, what are the ‘Ideals’ that need to be made real? Something that we’re learning in this new and exciting age of human progress is that conscious concrete manifestation is entirely possible, especially when we feel aligned to our core purpose. When you decide what it is that you truly want, allowing the energy of it to be focused through the power of the mind will allow it to manifest. Here, something new is being formed, even if it is only in its preliminary stage or early days. If these ‘Ideals’ are really meant to be brought into ‘Concrete Form’, focusing intently on them will bring them into reality. By doing this, you will make it possible for your creative ideas to be projected out into the real world. However, one must be truly thoughtful about what one wants to create. You may find that your hopes and dreams are not only brought into the light of reality, but are truly being put to the test. Be careful what you wish for. The mind is very powerful, and, if your focus is not used correctly, difficult situations can emerge. Concentrate carefully on what it is that you want and ‘Watch’ what happens. Think positively as this Symbol can create wonderful magic in your life.

Vivid confrontations with one’s objectives. Creative visualizations. Imagining things. Meditations and affirmations. Ideas crystallized. Putting things out into the universe. Making things happen. Seeing things take shape and form. Clairvoyance. Film making. Writing and getting published. The power of manifestation. Solidification. Builders. Sculptures. Dreams.

The Caution: Being dissatisfied with what was thought to be the true ideal. Feeling that things are “written in stone” and can’t be changed. Calcified situations or emotions. Neurosis. Focusing on the negative thereby bringing the negative.

The ruler of the Libran new Moon, Venus, is on an interesting degree in light of what’s going on right now –


Transiting Mercury passed over this degree last week, and, the Moon, the Sun and Mars will also pass over it in the coming weeks. (N.B. This is the degree of Donald Trump’s Jupiter).

This Symbol implies the periodic need for people to step up to the line and explain themselves, or to justify some actions or ways of being, particularly in relationships. Sometimes our ideas or actions are under criticism, to the point of feeling that someone has offended social acceptability. Be thoughtful about situations, because problems you face in your life may only exist in your own mind, stopping you from having fruitful relationships because of a lack of trust or because of a failed relationship in your past. You may need to feel forgiven or you may need to forgive someone else. Relationships can be held in abeyance until all the facts come to light. Things resolve themselves as time goes by.

Keywords: Having to plead one’s case. The need for “legal help”. Unacceptable principles. Blowing the whistle. Pointing at others to get off charges. People unable to relate. The “Romeo and Juliet” story. Feeling caught out. Restrictions. Karma to be worked out. Being framed. Circumstances out of control. People in handcuffs. Identification parades. Police. The law. Lawyers. Judges. Juries. Tribunals. Police states. Breaking laws.

The Caution: Refusing to conform. Sabotage of relationship values. Feeling stuck, unable to move. Staying in relationships when one should go. Deadening emotions. Shutting off to cope. Not having one’s point of view heard. Losing one’s authority. Being bound karmically. Being tied up and limited.

The Moon’s north node is exactly conjunct the Sun of the US 4th July chart (I use the Sibley chart) –


This Symbol shows that you may be looking for some help or spiritual guidance, but it may be difficult to find through the usual channels. As we become more enlightened there is a greater ability to see spiritual truth in unexpected places. There needs to be a trust and courage that your inner wisdom is in touch with the higher truth. The ‘Vast Dark Space to the Northeast’ is often the direction one looks for this spiritual guidance and looking towards that direction in the sky can bring an influx of creative and spiritual energies. Further, this symbolizes the desertion of native people’s by their governments.

Keywords: American Indians and other native peoples that have been left in the dark. Losing faith in the future. The dying out of cultures or languages. Washington DC. Staring into a void. Blindness. Searching for answers. Sirius—the Dog Star. Magnetic shifts. Compass directions. Stargazing. Navigation. Faith. The earth’s poles. Astronomy. Vast dark arenas. Wisdom that comes with age. Feeling old before one’s time. Seeking purpose and direction.

The Caution: Seeing nothing. A lack of purpose. Abandonment, rejection, loss and darkness. The exploitation and abandonment of native people. Myopia. Voids. Emptiness.

Jupiter is on Sagittarius 18, which speaks of looking after the needs of the young, shielding them from difficult elements of life…


This degree speaks of the ability, along with the necessity, of providing protection for youngsters and children, giving them safety and security and sheltering from the harsher aspects of life. It may, at times, be a tiring responsibility as you have to be watchful for slipups when the protection may fall away – leaving those that should feel shielded open to the elements and the damaging aspects of the environment and society. At times, you may feel that you, or others, are being overprotected, but it is most likely for your own good. Don’t be distracted by efforts being made on your behalf; sometimes we, ourselves, need to be shielded by others from harmful elements. Remember to play and to have fun, but don’t let people hoodwink you or pull the wool over your eyes.

Keywords: Care taken with small beginnings. Protection or blinkering? Propaganda that hides more severe life realities. Censorship. Innocence. Being treated like a child. Mollycoddling. Sunblocks and sunscreens. Screens that filter.

The Caution: Overprotection by institutionalized procedures that can lead to not being able to see the whole picture. “Organized religion” and it’s blinding of society to the true joy within and without. Infantile behavior. Being left in the dark without a clue as to what’s going on. Naivety. Being overshadowed by ego. Abuse and neglect.

As many are no doubt aware, we have a very interesting time coming up with the various things going on. It’s certainly a very intense time.

Regarding my website memberships, newsletters, etc.

I’ve been wanting to explain what happened with my website and the memberships and the astrology software, etc, but, things kept getting in the way, and, I had some hope that I might be able to reinstate the memberships and the software. Alas, it is not possible.

Essentially, what happened is the website got hacked in late January or early February, and, I and the programmer who designed the astrology software, tried a lot of things to fix it. The site ended up being further hacked either four or five times, and, in amongst it, the programmer that I worked with kept moving the site to new servers, each time we got hacked again, and, each time it cost money to keep doing it. After so many times of spending days and weeks on trying to fix it, I had to stop trying. So, the memberships are not working and neither is the astrology software that produced the reports. There are several reasons why this won’t come together again, not the least being my relationship with the software programmer had to be terminated as things just became untenable.

Not having the software has not helped with the newsletters as I’d been using the software to make the shell of the newsletter, and, not having it means it would take me hours more to put the newsletter together the way it was.

There’s lots more to say about all of this, but, most pressing to me is to apologise to those who had paid memberships and had spent time accruing charts and reports in their files. I do apologise. It has been incredibly expensive, and, upsetting, and, after years of trying to make it work, I just had to let it go.

As for the newsletters, I’ve done over 450 over the course of the last 20 years, and, I usually spent an entire day (or longer) putting them together. If I told you how I did it, you’d think it was nuts. It was very work intensive and complicated. I may get back to doing the newsletter, however, doing it in a different way – perhaps doing audio recordings as they are much less work intensive to produce.

I’m back doing readings, so, if you’d like a reading based on your Sabian Symbols, you can order one here.
