Eclipse Predictions, President Obama, and 2012 Campaign Direction

Eclipse May 20-June 4 2012
Eclipse May 20-June 4 2012

I want to share the insights of my remarkably accurate prognosticator and colleague, psychic astrologer Eric Teissedre. We were emailing back and forth about the psychic astrology of this eclipse season, May 20-June 4th, 2012, and he had some very intriguing things to say about how to handle eclipse season, President Obama and the direction of the presidential campaign, and how this is a time like no other to “be yourself”, a more empowered, enlightened self:

Eric: “The ruler for my reading was Mars. Mars gave me a sense that it was speaking about initiation, self initiation and even changing one’s road if they felt it was necessary. Looking at these signs , I felt many needed to just focus on themselves in a way they never have before. Mars can rule processes. If you are not happy with the way things are going, try a different order or method of doing something. This would be a time to evaluate your processes. If you are unhappy, perhaps changing an approach would be appropriate.
This is particularly true of anything related to work. Even in a time of corporate structure, we need to feed those elements that are unique to self. In fact, find where your talents are indispensable.”
According to Eric, President Obama’s solar traits, being a Leo, include being able to remake his persona:
“Obama is quite likely to resurrect like the phoenix and have some strong charisma and once again, is working a magic he is famous for. In past readings, I used the word “secrets”. He is a man of mystery. No one is sure who he is, where he is from, or what his affiliations truly are. Still, he is like a flame and will appear brighter than ever when he wants to. He will suggest that those times we do not see him, he has been working secretively to defeat the foes of America. At least at a time of an election, this might have some persuading power, and who knows, it might be true.”
Eric’s eclipse predictions: “Eclipses are often associated with new beginnings, especially a new moon eclipse, which occurs on May 20, 2012. Eclipses often intensify the energy considerably. They are used in India specifically for energizing mantras. Chi Gung masters who have a magical
understanding of chi, will choose these times to bring a huge current of chi into their body, especially the full moon eclipse. That is on June 4.
These eclipses being in mutable signs of Gemini and Sagittarius can mean two (different) things. For people feeling unbalanced, they should lay low. For others, it can be a powerful time of consciousness, meaning your mind is working more profoundly than usual. There is always a warning and that is, if you are overwhelmed generally, then eclipses will overwhelm you more. If you are clear, then eclipses will act as a powerful tool for charging.
In India, certain practitioners remove themselves from society and attempt to reduce the stimuli of society as a means of becoming empowered. By being centered, and mastering inner energies, they gain the power to control spirits and forces. Eclipses for these people are considered to be a specific empowering time.
Eclipses act as triggers. It is my intuitive impression that they really kick-start the beginning of this year’s elections. It was my feeling that this was the time that Obama would come forward with more explanation in regards to what he has been doing behind the scenes, especially on June 4, the full moon. I sense that as being significant.”

The Pentacostal Church Has Instructive Origins

I want to share an article recently sent to me about the origins of the Pentacostal Church, which has come a long way from where it started. It began on Asuza Street in Los Angeles, with a church where miracles were happening. Now, it’s more known for its rigid structure than its miracles.

This story is relevant now because like many of our own wonderful ideas we create an institution around, personal or political, they don’t work for us now, they need amending or a completely different foundation upon which a new miracle can appear. Great ideas give way to structure, which must necessarily rot us, or we transform it. This is the time, right now in December 2011, when we have a chance to get re-established in better structures and greater freedom.

Eric Teissedre’s Divination Astrology for the Holidays and Beyond

Here’s astute astrologer Eric’s take on Thanksgiving 2011 and the coming, much heralded 2012. While writing my newsletter, I asked him to weigh in after noticing very intense astrological aspects on Turkey Day…this was his reply:

“If there are unresolved family issues, watch out! There is every sign of things being at an emotional peak. Good time to hide the steak knives…around turkey dinner! Knowing this, you can arm yourself with protection by realizing emotions do not always make sense. In fact, they come from a more subjective way of thinking. It is also helpful to realize that people are not always talking about us. They tend to be talking about themselves when making pointed comments. There is a possibility of many children being conceived during the holidays, since couples could be taking refuge within their own relationship. It is a time to surround yourself by those you really love. Once again, the holidays, in particular, Christmas, should be a celebration, that focuses on sharing with significant people. There has been a trend to make Christmas completely about money and things. Well thought out gifts could be a plus and without being crass, gift certificates and money allows people to buy what it is they really want! Both personally and nationally, there are revelations of secrets. You could find out that you know things about people you never thought consciously. It is as if we are beginning the purge of 2012. There is every sign of emotion, and holiday and emotion can be a strange mix. I truly feel we should invest in those who are our support, those we truly love. Try to bury old grievances and do not linger and participate in any battles that are un-resolvable. Capture the magic of the holidays. Bring this time back. This is the time of renewal, rebirth, of the light. It is supposed to be a sacred time of the year.” Eric Teissedre, November 1, 2011 Eric’s blog: click here

Fascinating Fall 2011 Astrological Insights and Beyond from Eric Teissedre

Eric's Fall 2011 Astrology
Eric's Fall 2011 Astrology

This morning I posted this article at the Examiner, and just saw in the headlines that Christie is saying “NO” to running.. .see candidate discussion below.

Eric Teissedre is a master astrologer and metaphysician who combines horary astrology and divination to create the most accurate readings I’ve come across. He answers questions or gives a general overview at I highly recommend Eric! This morning I asked him his thoughts about Fall, 2011, and he shot back this interesting email I want to share with you:

“This cast is ruled by Mercury, which is the planet of communication, also change. It is not the most stable of planets. It can often mean things are not as they appear to be. I also feel that the election of next year is starting very much now. There will be changeable candidates come forth, people dropping in to the electional race, people dropping out. There will definitely be a lot of intrigue. The election exerts a lot of influence, even being a year away.

Banks are in the forefront, both with their need to make up for financial loss, and a need to start charging more money. Curiously enough, there are signs that show public opposition and it is very much a time when the collective consciousness can start demanding that government to a degree, serves the people. I would call this the war of the year. It is not as important who wins as it is that the government is reminded they are elected officials that serve the people. They are not an institution unto themselves. So, whoever wins the election is that person that starts directing energy back as much to the people as possible.

Obama is beginning to show those stress signs that all presidents get in office. I truly believe there is a secret and silent war going on. We saw this with Bin Laden, a few men accomplished what an army could not. There is every indication of secret and military, these two words going together. Special troops, significantly trained, able to accomplish tasks in a manner that large troops could not.

This Fall leads in to an amazing time. the Mayan calendar does not change in a day, does not end next December. There has been a transition for some time. I truly believe that consciousness affects fate and consciousness can be used as a medium for healing. This is something we are all going to be involved with, a returning to a sane lifestyle, better food, better healing, a recognizing how negative thinking creates negative and positive creates positive.

I will go out on a limb with this last statement: I truly believe the cures for many diseases are already in existence. The problem is that the pharmaceutical business has been managing disease and does not want the cure of the diseases. Spirit moves in a mysterious way. Allow the healing knowledge to come forth, cure the diseases that exist, and you will see financial correction with social health care.”

(Note about Eric’s “war of the year”: In the January 2011 newsletter, I predicted that the biggest event of the year would happen late Summer/early Fall. When Ghadafi fell, I thought that was probably it. Now I think it’s the Occupy Wall Street movement.)
