New Year 2023: Clunky Beginning!

Using Vedic Astrology

On our first show of the year, Both Sides Now & Beyond, “Tips to Start the New Year,” James and I discussed ways and ideas to make sure this year, is the best yet! I began the show as usual by examining current astrological aspects. I described the beginning of this particular New Year of 2023 as, “challenging to make or even begin New Year Resolutions,” because TWO MAIN PLANETS—MARS AND MERCURY—continue to be in RETROGRADE, which SLOW our actions and energy way down!

Without missing a beat, James said, “IT FEELS CLUNKY!

CLUNKY. A perfect description of the energy we are all feeling.

The last time I ever heard the word CLUNK was when I turned 16 years old. I was given my Grandfather’s 1967 Plymouth Valiant to drive. Although I was appreciative of having a car, I told my Dad I just could not drive that car—because it was A CLUNK. It was ALWAYS breaking down, not starting and on occasion, not stopping. Of course, the car was named, The Clunk.

So this New Year’s BEGINNING energy is one of starts and stops. Clunky.

Mars goes direct in Taurus on January 14. Mars is the planet that deals with energy, passion, anger, weapons, and even war. But when Mars turns direct it brings more energy to us. Life takes action again.

Mercury goes Direct on January 18 and remains in Sagittarius! Expect communications to be explosive, the truth, and fires – and inspiration – you will have new ideas! When Mercury is direct in Sagittarius it brings open-mindedness and adventure! Our thoughts will be broadened.

Although the New Year officially began on January 1, ASTROLOGICALLY, THIS NEW YEAR kicks off January 18! Great time and energy to begin new projects!

If you would like to learn about Lemuria & Atlantis, Prajna Avalon and I will be teaching Part 3 on January 28. This is a dynamic class which includes an in depth meditation. This final class explores the ways we can bring the power of these ancient civilizations to the present age.

If you haven’t taken Part 1 or 2, NO WORRIES! Two options are available, you can purchase Part 1 and Part 2 and/or we will be doing a review of both parts which will be included in Part 3.

If you want to learn about Narcisism, Dr. Shirley Impellizzeri and I will be teaching a class on February 25: SURVIVING A NARCISIST!

We will explore and give examples:

The traits of Narcissist.

Manipulation techniques Narcissists use.

Ways to identify Narcissistic traits and people.

Ways to cope with, survive, and recover from Narcissistic relationships.
