Intelligence Audio Readings Are Ready: A Quiet Space to Contemplate Your Life

“I Believe in Miracles” by Lanvi Nguyen.

Dear Friend and Reader:

Sometimes it seems like there’s no quiet place in the world, or time to think. Many days life seems to be running out of control; there is so much chaos, it really can seem like nothing makes any sense at all. Yet right now, we know it’s urgent that we find some inner focus, so we can find our way.

My INTELLIGENCE readings are designed to do just that. These are extended audio readings that guide you through your astrology for 2019, as a metaphor for studying your life. My slow-paced, gentle presentation is the perfect remedy to the frantic world we live in now. The readings are illustrated with in-house music selected for your sign.

If you opt in for the written readings, you will receive a perspective that goes out to the end of 2020.

I bring to this work my many years of experience as a private astrological consultant, and as a public astrologer writing for worldwide audiences.

I bring my spiritual training, my therapy experience and my knowledge gained from investigative reporting. These readings are as worldly and practical as they are a space to heal and reflect.

RESET 2019, the audio portion of INTELLIGENCE, is available for immediate access. For the first time, we’re publishing phase one before the New Year begins. The second phase is a written reading, which will be delivered at the usual time — sometime in mid- to late-February.

The audio readings are 75 to 90 minutes each, with original music dividing the sessions. The 12 readings are one body of work (about 18 hours in length), and you will benefit from listening to any of them. (Many people seem to like binge-listening, which will be calmer than South Park but not as funny.) Their meaning will come out in layers, after repeated listenings and over the course of the year. When you’ve heard one, you will want to hear more.

I suggest you get at least your Sun sign and rising sign. One incentive for getting all 12 — still at the pre-order price — is that you may share them with your family or your household. So collectives or house-shares need only invest in one copy.

Here are your options for purchase:

All 12 Audio Readings Only — $99

All 12 Written and Audio Readings — $133

Individual signs, written and audio — $44 for the first sign, $22 for each additional sign.

Backstage Pass and Galaxy Pass holders please write to us at for best price.

Thank you for your business, and for trusting me as your astrologer.

Coming To You on Saturday Night! INTELLIGENCE: A Documentary About Your Life

Dear Friend and Reader:

It’s difficult to keep a positive attitude about life right now. It’s easy to be cranky and to run out of hope, especially if you tune into the affairs of the wider world. It’s difficult to feel like things will be any different from the way they currently are: less stressful, more meaningful, easier to handle.

Many people are getting cynical. That’s a “luxury” we cannot afford right now. It’s a dark and sleepy approach, when we need to focus our minds, stay in contact with our feelings and with one another, and face the challenges of our lives — whether private or collective, small or great. And for that, we’re going to need to wake up and use our minds.

To that end, I’ve just finished designing and recording the first phase of your INTELLIGENCE reading, called RESET 2019. We’re putting the final touches on the website and will have them to you by this weekend, probably by Saturday night.

The INTELLIGENCE readings will cover out to the end of 2020 when the written portion is ready early next year.

I have used as a destination the winter solstice of 2020, about two years from now, when there is finally an opening and a massive shift in the collective energy. Yet this will take preparation.

RESET 2019 focuses on the necessities of how to get there. In each reading, I first take apart the events of 2018 and explain how they were necessary steps on the way to processing the events of the coming two years. If you’re wondering what the heck happened this past year, INTELLIGENCE will not only provide some insight; you will also be able to claim the value of what you experienced.

Single Signs Now Available for Pre-sale: Envisioning Your Future: INTELLIGENCE 2019-2020

Dear Friend and Reader:

It’s difficult to see the future these days. I don’t mean to predict; I mean to see out to the horizon, and imagine something new.

There’s a lot in the way: the challenges we face every day, the sense of uncertainty that we live with, and the chaos churned up by the digital environment; let’s pause there for a second. This has thrown into chaos the “sense of self” that many people once possessed.

Add to that economic uncertainty and the sensation that the whole world is on the edge — it’s difficult to see the future these days. It seems risky to trust that things will be OK. It can feel impossible to imagine anything different from what we have now, much less something better.

Here is where astrology comes in. There is a future, and you are included. I use my gift as an astrologer to open up your perception of time, and give you access to time as a resource. This can be done with the power of human thought, if only we can get out of our own way.

INTELLIGENCE is your 2019-2020 reading, and it’s all about lighting up your mind, letting go of the past, and envisioning your future. Then, you will see some possible destinations begin to arise.

We are now in one of those “whole new reality” series of transits: Chiron in Aries. Uranus in Taurus. Many other long-range events that will shape our lives — and that we can use as points of orientation.

There are two major factors on what I call the “event horizon” — Saturn conjunct Pluto on Jan. 12, 2020, and Jupiter conjunct Saturn on Dec. 21, 2020.

On their own, each these would be a significant development; but soon we will get them in the same year.

It is for this reason that I’m covering 2019 and 2020 in one project — next year in audio (for fast delivery) and then 2020 in writing (equally detailed, though writing takes longer).

This is carefully done, thoughtful, accessible astrology like nobody else can do it. Though I am reluctant to use the word, I am a master of the solar house system, allowing me to put more detail into your reading than most other astrologers can do with your natal chart. (The solar chart is the archetypal chart for your birth sign).
