  • Uranus Through the Houses in the Natal Chart

    16/07/2021 Duration: 09min

    Episode 139. Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun - and it’s an “ice giant” and the fourth-largest planetary mass in the solar system. It also has 27 moons and rings just like Saturn! In astrology, Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius and is associated with change, freedom, and individuality. Where Uranus is placed in your natal chart shows the areas of your life where you are original, non-conformist, and where you might experience sudden changes. It can also tell something about your intuitive gifts or unique work you’re here to do as well as the groups or friends in your life. If afflicted, it can indicate where you’re rebellious. 1st: Uranus in the first house indicates you’re a true non-conformist. You don’t care if you fit in. Instead, you want to express your individuality freely. You might be regarded as eccentric or unconventional - and you may dress in a way that gets people talking.

    Episode 136. Saturn is the “ringed planet.”  In astrology, it is associated with lessons and limitations. Where Saturn is placed in your natal chart shows the areas of your life where you may experience challenges and must shoulder responsibilities.

If afflicted, Jupiter can bring foolish optimism or a lack of moderation. 1st: Jupiter in the first house indicates an optimistic, outgoing personality.

  • Understanding Your Loved Ones with the Celestial Trilogy with Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

    19/03/2021 Duration: 41min

    Episode 129. Before you start making assumptions that you simply can't get along with that Taurus or you can only date "certain signs," hear this: you can learn how to foster healthy relationships with anybody, no matter what their sign may be. Astrologers Amy Zerner and Monte Farber join me to talk about how the "celestial trilogy" can help you learn to understand the people in your life better - and create stronger partnerships, even if the stars aren't aligning. Once you know how someone operates (and what you both need), you can work together in a way that is best for both parties. We talk about this - and their new book, Mindful Astrology, a helpful guide to the celestial trilogy, the three most important points in the zodiac chart.

    12/03/2021 Duration: 07min

    Episode 128. Where Mercury is placed in your natal chart shows the areas of your life or activities that occupy your mind or impact your communication. 1st: Mercury in the first house indicates a personality that is curious and talkative. You have an intellectual outlook on life and might be intellectually competitive. It may be hard to shut you up at times though. 2nd: Mercury in the second house means your mind is preoccupied with money and business. Like Snoop Dogg, “You’ve got your mind on your money and your money on your mind.” You might make your living through a career in writing, teaching, or communications. 3rd: Mercury in the third house is accidentally dignified since this house corresponds with Gemini. If you have Mercury in the third, you’re probably quick-witted, intelligent, and a great speaker. You have a way with words. This placement can also indicate a nervous mind - or a tendency to gossip way too much. 4th: Mercury in the fourth means a lot of mental activity happens in the home. The

You can go back to older episodes to learn about the attributes of each house. Where the Moon sits in your natal chart shows where you get emotional. Because the Moon is changeable, this can also indicate where conditions in your life may fluctuate too. 1st: The Moon in the first house indicates a personality that expresses feelings outwardly. Your heart is right on your sleeve. Sometimes, you may be too reactionary. 2nd: The Moon in the second house means money is important to you. It comes and goes, which can create anxiety. When you have enough cash in the bank, you tend to be more chill. 3rd: The Moon in the third house indicates emotions tend to color your thoughts.
