"Let go of what has passed.
Let go of what may come.
Let go of what is happening now.
Don't try to figure anything out.
Don't try to make anything happen.
Relax, right now, and rest."

TIMING is everything.
All things change. Change is our only constant.

"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather....In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or is dehumanized." -- Goethe

The way ahead is lit by our trust in inner visions.

"How can I be substantial if I fail to cast a Shadow? One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. C.G. Jung

Mercury was the only entity allowed access to both Mt. Olympus and hell by the Gods. Mercury is the guide between the conscious and unconscious. He's the Psychopomp and Loki the trickster from Norse mythology. He is quicksilver and also the healer, Hermes. Mercury is my chart ruler!

"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personsal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather . . .

Conscious living doesn't grant us immunity from troubles, but we are able to transform our stumbling stones into stepping stones.

In memoriam, my dad, Knute F. Dobkins, December 13, 1921 -- January 21, 2012, for my brother Knute F. Dobkins, Jr., October 17, 1955 -- September 20, 2015, my mother, Bettye Jean Dobkins, August 5, 1927 -- May 23, 2018, and youngest brother J.E. Mack, February 18, 1962 -- September 3, 2021.

Be prepared. That's what the truth and astrology do for us. We gain the edge by seeing things exactly as they are. Not by how we wish they would be. -- Starcats

The best investment you can make right now is the one you make in YOU. All change happens on the inside first as an intention, then as a purging of old, useless and outdated parts of self that leads us to a realignment with our Authentic Self. At that stage, we are then ready to SPEAK OUR WORD and let loose the energy that will manifest our future goals and dreams. Let astrology help!

Timing is Everything! Be sure you're connected to yours!
