Astro Frequencies… What’s Your Vibe?

ASTRO FREQUENCiES (see Youtube video here)

We are not separate from the universe; we are of the universe! We live in this milieu of galaxies amongst all the other residents of the universe: sun, moon, stars, planets, asteroids, comets, black holes, etc. We are also composed of the same chemical elements as the universe: water, hydrogen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide for example. Of course, we and the planets embody varying degrees of these elements which gives each its life, form and temperament but all originate from the same source.

*

People have different personalities as measured by the way we present ourselves with our own unique way,  we have a certain style. The celestial bodies too have personalities: the sun invites us to spend a summer day basking in the warmth of its rays, picnicking at the park, or sunbathing at the beach; the moon lights up the night setting the mood for mystery and romance while the stars reflect the twinkle in our eyes and the planets display their cosmic rhythm while dancing in the sky. All have distinct personalities and yet, we all co-exist in this vast universe.
*

The celestial bodies, as we, have electromagnetic fields of energy that add to our power of relativity. Sometimes this electromagnetic field is referred to as the aura. These fields of energy are frequencies emanating outwardly from the whole of the orbital bodies.
*

People can tune in to these frequencies. We can sometimes know what kind of a mood a person is in even without that person uttering a word. We can feel the frequency, the vibe, and just know. Some people might say, “I picked up a bad vibe and kept my distance.”
*

These fields of energy, frequencies, are given off by the sun, moon and planets as well. We all know that although the moon is about 240,000 miles away from the earth, it still affects us not only by lighting up the night but additionally, with its gravitational pull. I think many of us have witnessed the huge ocean waves when the moon is full. The human body is composed of about 60-70 percent water. Wouldn’t a full moon affect us too? We also know that there would be no life on earth without the warm rays of the sun. How many times have we positioned a plant to make sure it has enough sun to grow?
*

Yes, these celestial bodies are much farther away from us than a person who gives off vibes indicating a mood. However, the celestial bodies are much larger in mass and emanate enormous amounts of electromagnetic frequencies. The ancients recognized cosmic correlations thousands of years ago from their careful observations of the sky. “As above, so below” is an axiom attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, astrologer, sage, and believed to be the author of the Emerald Tablets, one of the revered, scholarly works of antiquity where this axiom was written and has thrived for centuries.
*

The ancients understood the importance of observing these astronomical giants’ cycles and phases as their lives depended on it. Today, we depend on how hostile or friendly the seasons are as our seasons too are influenced by the cosmic climate. The Farmer’s Almanac identifies new and full moon cycles in addition to recording and predicting astronomical events, proven to be important agricultural information, utilized by many farmers for planting and harvesting crops.
*

Our very lives depend on what’s going on not only on earth but in the universe because we are of the stuff of the universe. Astrologers observe the sun, moon, stars and planets and correlate their activities with our human experiences. A practice that has prevailed with cultures all over the world for thousands and thousands of years.
*

Astrology is based on mathematical science but also interprets that science along with the frequencies, personalities, of the celestial bodies to see how they influence our lives here on earth.
*

The ancients methodically divided the sky into twelve sectors and each sector represents different parts of the human experience: personality, home and family, relationships, career to name a few along with eight more fields of human experience rounding out these twelve sectors. The ancients knew that human existence was not merely an isolated event but that all was a whole and began acknowledging our relationship with our cosmic family.
*

Here is a keyword snapshot of each of the twelve astrological signs and their astro frequencies:
*

Aries- I originate energy  (March 21st to April 2oth)
*

Taurus- I accumulate energy  (April 21st to May 21st)
*

Gemini- I disseminate energy  (May 22nd to June 21st)
*

Mercury’s Retrograde Cycle: Friend or Foe?

Mercury Planet.Screen Shot 2019-11-02 at 4.31.14 PM

Mercury’s Rx Orbit: Friend or Foe? by Felecia Harte

I am writing this when we are at the very beginning of a Mercury Rx, actually Mercury is stationing retrograde right now. About a week ago, I was investigating Mercury’s orbit. I was looking at the fact that Mercury retrogrades about every 116 days and how its cycle plays out.

Yes, we astrologers know what we tell our clients, students about Mercury retrograde: a time to re-evaluate, re-do, re-visit, and re-think amongst other “re-s”. Mercury retrograde is a time of reflection when we re-assess our projects, actions, relationships. We reflect on where we are in life and what we can do to make things better. We could be doing things very well and in that case, we can reflect on what we have done to attain success and what needs to be implemented to sustain our success.

We can also reflect on what is not going as expected and decide what modifications need to be made. At any rate, it is a time to see what is working and what is not. Our western culture is so busy but we really do need these “time outs”. Just as we take breaks during work on our nine to fives or vacations during the year, we do need time to just be with ourselves, our thoughts and Mercury aids in this break.

Those of us in tune with Astrology are aware of these times and can go with the flow. As Astrologers, we know about Mercury retrograde’s influence but I wanted to delve deeper into the actual mathematical facts about its cycle.

I learned something very interesting. I learned more about Mercury’s inferior and superior conjunctions and when they occur within Mercury’s every approx. 116-day retrograde cycle. In the middle of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, it begins its inferior conjunction and this inferior conjunction actually begins Mercury’s 116-day cycle. I found this rather interesting that Mercury’s cycle begins in the middle of its retrograde? How curious I thought. This is typically the time to be careful about signing contracts, beginning completely new projects, beginning new jobs and the list goes on.

So in the middle of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, it begins its inferior conjunction and then about a week after it goes direct, its superior conjunction commences. Mercury and Venus are inferior planets and are so named because they orbit within earth’s orbit. During the inferior conjunction, Mercury, the earth and sun are all in alignment. When Mercury is in its inferior conjunction, it is closest to the earth. Many Astrologers have suggested this proximity to earth is why there tends to be miscommunication problems during Mercury retrograde as this proximity to earth subjects Mercury to earth’s influence impeding its own free flowing frequencies; thus, it is difficult to tune in to Mercury’s frequency because it receives interference from earth just as one radio station’s signal might impede the signal of another.

When Mercury enters its superior conjunction, about a week after it goes direct, it is now traveling faster than 1 degree per day now faster than the sun and is heading toward its normal speed of 2 plus degrees per day. At superior conjunction, Mercury is on the other side of the sun farthest away from the earth and sun. This phase seems similar to the full moon and would represent Mercury at its most liberated: away from the earth and in a superior position to the sun.

At this superior position, it would seem that Mercury would be free to really tune in, download information from the cosmos without interference, that information would come in loud and clear and could be passed on to natives like a direct current. Of course, sign and aspects would need to be considered but just purely from his superior perch, his communication would seem to be unfettered!

After the superior conjunction phase, Mercury does travel faster but it is now going into its waning phase until its next inferior conjunction.

When reviewing a chart, it would probably be helpful to see what phase the cycle is in when the native was born. If by chance natally or by transit, the native has great aspects to Mercury and is superior conjunction, this could be a most auspicious aspect for communication, commerce, media and things associated with Mercury.   

It is in the Mercury Rx cycle that mercury is “reborn”, inferior conjunction, which is likened to a new moon. Once it apexes at its superior conjunction, “full moon”, it begins its waning cycle. However, it is during this period until it reaches its shadow period, the degrees it traverses three times, that Mercury moves its fastest and is believed by many Astrologers to be the period when it is “safe” to initiate businesses, contracts, etc. But after the superior conjunction, during this fast moving phase is the waning phase.

Perhaps the strongest period of Mercury is about a week after it goes direct, superior conjunction, but before it returns to its two plus degree movement per day? This is not to say that this faster moving period is not beneficial but to reap the purest Mercury results, shouldn’t we make the most of the days surrounding the start of the superior phase to reap maximum Mercury outcomes while continuing to be cautious during its shadow period ending just prior to it retrograding? Definitely something to think about.

Mercury is reborn during its retrograde cycle, when you look at it from this perspective, the Mercury retrograde cycle may be more of a friend than foe. It is not something to dread or even to approach apprehensively because its the retrograde cycle that gives birth to its superior conjunction when Mercury has its best opportunity to download cosmic information and then, in its speedier orbit at superior conjunction, relay that information to us. After all, thoughts precede actions.   

Its inferior conjunction begins the Mercury retrograde cycle in the middle of the retrograde cycle. The fact that this planet of communication begins its cycle at midpoint in its retrograde period, is significant perhaps emphasizing the need to think before speaking. We all know how powerful words and thoughts are. We sometimes speak before we think and unleash harsh, hurtful words unto others which later we may regret but once spoken and heard by others, words cannot be unspoken. Of course, we can apologize for hurtful words but the words themselves can never be unspoken.

The fact that Mercury begins its cycle here reminds us to be careful of what we say. In fact, Mercury retrograde is a time of reflection and supports our need to reflect not only on our projects, commerce and outward activities but on what and how we think. Thoughts proceed words.

This inferior conjunction occurs midway between Mercury station retrograde and Mercury station direct. This position perfectly cradles the connection between past and future thoughts somewhat like the Roman god, Janus, who could see forwards and backwards at the same time!

This also reminds me of the organ that processes our thoughts, the two cerebral hemispheres of the brain. The left hemisphere is more analytical and linear while the right hemisphere is more abstract and artistic. These two cerebral hemispheres work in tandem as they are bridged by the corpus callosum, a thick band of nerve fibers, allowing for communication between both hemispheres.

Some of us are thought to have a propensity for right brain affairs and others to have more of a propensity for left brain affairs however, the normal functioning brain has access to both! This is where the Mercury retrograde period comes to the forefront. Because it’s here that we have the opportunity to re-trace our steps, patterns of thought, actions and communications readying ourselves for improving future matters of Mercury’s domain.

Mercury retrograde actually gives us a quantity of time that we can utilize to ponder the quality of our patterns of thought, actions and communications. Right in the very middle of Mercury retrograde, lies a very important event, the inferior conjunction, that can open us up to a myriad of possibilities perhaps answering some of life’s most challenging perplexities. The astrological sign and house positions serve to enhance the focus. 

Mercury travels on to its superior conjunction where it is farthest away from the sun that it can be, 47 degrees, and freer to express its unbridled qualities. It’s journey to its superior conjunction is somewhat like the waxing moon in that Mercury is forward moving culminating its climax, the superior conjunction. And now, he begins his waning phase similar to a waning moon.

Mercury retrogrades occur more than any other planet, about three times per year. Maybe this is so because it is needed. These periods of re-thinking, re-adjusting, re-doing are invaluable if approached and utilized in their most beneficial way.

In our society, we are always on the go working towards some goal but maybe, just maybe, following our friend’s, Mercury, natural rhythm even with its retrograde periods of reflection, may get us to where we want to go faster and more efficiently.

Cold Out Here- Surviving Winters Are Especially Harsh Even In Sunny California!

Cold Out Here_pic (1)

COLD OUT HERE by Felecia Harte, Hartecast Music™

“Cold Out Here”only scratches the surface of homelessness as all the disabling effects of the homeless problems could not be addressed in a mere 5 minute music video. The purpose of “Cold Out Here” is to bring homelessness back to our consciousness as it seems to have become so prevalent that a lot of us have become immuned to this debilitating condition.

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) defines homelessness as: people who are living in a place not meant for human habitation, in emergency shelter, in transitional housing, or are exiting in an institution where they temporarily reside.

According to the UK homelessness charity Crisis, a home is not just a physical space it also provides: roots, identity, security, a sense of belonging and a place of emotional wellbeing.

When there is no foundation upon which to feel rooted, there is uncertainty which may lead to depression and hopelessness as well as the plethora of associated problems: major mental illnesses, especially chronic schizophrenia, malnutrition, parasitic infestations, dental and periodontal disease, degenerative joint diseases, venereal diseases and many others.

The song, “Cold Out Here” was inspired by the trials and tribulations of life we all face. There are times, and for some many times, we get knocked down while working to progress in life. Many of us are fortunate enough to have family, friends or circumstances that allow us to overcome life’s hard knocks but there are others who are not so fortunate.

As we go about the business of living our daily lives with all of the frustrations we sometimes encounter when pursuing something we really want: a promotion, to buy a house, to have children, get that college education, to have our own apartment or whatever it might be, the homeless face even greater challenges. Their existence is about more than the average pursuits; it’s about something much more basic…survival.

Yes, we all face challenges everyday but the homeless face far greater challenges than those who have a roof over their heads and food in their bellies living in a place they can call home with a real address.

Let’s be more understanding of the people who may need our help whether that be a friend who needs someone to listen, a family member who needs a helping hand or the homeless we see struggling to stay alive. Give what you have to give: a smile, your time or donation but just give…

How Do You Feel When You’re Lookin’ Good? ~from the Harte

Everybody Wants To Look Good, Exude Confidence… Don’t You?

The beauty industry is a multi-billion dollar industry! Humans all over the globe from all cultures adorn themselves to look good. Here in the western world we spend big bucks on nips and tucks, hair coloring and styling, manicures/pedicures, diets and fitness, teeth whitening, not to mention fashion, shoes, make-up, etc

Why wouldn’t we spend money on these look good, feel good items? Afterall, our culture, as do others, promotes certain images of what lookin’ good is suppose to look like. Some of these beauty conceptions or misconceptions are changing but basically the big bucks of the beauty industry still revolve around the thin, fit, symmetrical features although plump, larger lips are in, have been for a long time, and are probably here to stay.

Attractiveness equals power! Supermodels make huge dollars, the really successful ones, make millions of dollars promoting beauty for their clients. We live in a capitalistic society where money equals power. If you have the looks, you have a better than average chance of making good money no matter what line of business you’re in, beauty or otherwise; good looks are marketable!

When it comes to being a supermodel– the ones we hold as the epitome of beauty– there is more to being a super model than looks. Let’s be honest, models have to know how to make the best of what they have by knowing how to look, move and project for the camera or the catwalk. However, you don’t have a chance to  to be in front of the camera or walk the catwalk if you don’t have the looks; looks will get you through the door.

The “Lookin’ Good” song and video are about what the title states, “Lookin’ Good”. The song was co-authored by Felecia Harte and Steve Krchniak. The lyrics written by Felecia Harte state, “I know, you know, we know, I’m lookin’ good!” When we’re lookin’ good, we’re feelin’ good and we exude a certain confidence that others respond to.

Speaking of responding, the model in the video, Tita Rosita, is someone who makes an emotional connection with the viewers! Tita has what was referred to earlier about models having that quality to project. She not only projects but captures every frame of the camera! Tita Rosita has “it” that star quality! See for yourself when you click and watch the “Lookin’ Good” video!  Tita makes wardrobe changes throughout the video but many viewers find that the bikini photos are their favorite as they are somewhat revealing but artistically presented.

The filming of the video is spectacular! Jernej Graj of JG Design does a wonderful job. Filmed on an exotic island, the cinematic imagery and vivid colors are beautiful. The theme of the video, the song with its lyrical content are all about lookin’ good so it is only apropos for the visuals to equal to its title and Jernej Gray does a fabulous job of this!

Indulge yourself, take a break and watch the “Lookin’ Good” video; to watch the entire video on Youtube, click the link https://youtu.be/X2GkAouAL1M. You might find yourself lookin’ good and feelin’ good!

Is There A Perfect Life? by from the Harte

Woman on Tropical Island
Is There A Perfect Life?… by: from the Harte Print
~Felecia

A perfect life would probably mean something different to different people. For some, a perfect life may mean a committed relationship, a great business or job, fame, or to be healthy, and yet to others, just having that child they have always wanted would make life perfect. Therefore, perfection is not absolute but relative.

However, is there such a thing as a perfect life? It seems that perfection and life are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Perfection is static: the perfect tool for a job, the perfect dress for an occasion, the perfect song for a wedding, or the perfect words to soothe the pain of a friend. Once perfection is reached, then there is resolution and no further need. The definition of life includes the capacity for growth, reproduction and continual change. This very definition of life excludes perfection. Life is perpetual motion ceaseless in its quest to regenerate itself. This holds true in nature and in our human lives as well. A most obvious demonstration of this is that people give birth to offspring whose physical, psychological, social, and emotional development metamorphs through the continuum of life from infants to adults to old age.

As we course through life, we face the many dimensions of life: the joy of bringing a new life into the world, the happiness found in endearing relationships, and the trials and tribulations of losing a loved one. It is the latter, trials and tribulations, that present the greatest opportunities for growth; growth is one of the qualities of being alive. Growth and perfection do not exist together; there is either one or the other. The biggest challenges in life require the most effort and therefore represent the biggest opportunities for personal evolution.

One of the biggest challenges is loss: of employment, of home, wealth or of a loved one. These are the times we may have to stop and remove ourselves from the flow of life. These are the times for honest reflection and re-evaluation of the very core of who we are. It takes strength and courage for honest self-reflection. We may ask ourselves: what is going to happen to me? Perhaps the most piercing questions are who am I and do I have what it takes to carry on? There may even be self-doubt about having the strength and courage to carry on but all of us experience self-doubt. Self doubt is not a weakness when we have the audacity to continue life’s journey. Self-doubt is not what diminishes us but it is whether we have what it takes to stand in the arena of life, in the midst of the negative chatter, self-imposed or otherwise, and conquer our fears. This is what matters most.

I would ask not only is there a perfect life but can there be a perfect life? Perfection has its place in some finite situations but has no place in what we call life for life is to be lived. In order to partake in the joy of life and to meet its challenges, we need to be as free as the ocean tides and as vast as the universe.
