We all are collectively feeling a much greater, stronger workflow and we’re feeling like we have more energy to actually tackle things. Partially this is due to the fall Equinox and it also has to do with Pluto going direct. Pluto going direct is already such an intense planetary energy; it’s the energy that has to prod all the way to the very source of your problems, your fears, and rip them open. Almost like peeling the onion and becoming the phoenix effect of Scorpio. Really digging all the way in to the core issue of something and letting it free by trial and error. There’s never a sure, tried and true way, especially with the way that our civilization is set up to heal and transmute pain and suffering. Because of Pluto going direct, we’re not able to actually see what’s wrong. When Pluto is retrograde, we’re so caught up in this emotional purging and in our emotions, that we actually can’t see what’s happening.


Right now, we’re all kind of collectively coming to, and it’s perfect because we’re in the middle of our Rahu in Cancer and Ketu in Capricorn eclipse series. Rahu and Ketu are the nodes of the moon and their placements are actually expressing this opening up to our matriarchy and the possibility of completely clearing our womb energy and using our feminine energy for what it’s meant to do. Our collective feminine energy hasn’t been working well because of the toxic environment that the overwhelmingly masculine corporate patriarchy that we live in has created. So, the “dragon’s tale” (Ketu) is in Capricorn, which is basically helping us to dissolve these really old systemic and intense energies that are repressing our people. This Pluto going direct is really going to shine a light on even more disgusting political events. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, I’m an astrologer, but I have a lot of hunches that often come true.

When Pluto is retrograde people can keep secrets and get caught up in the darker side of things, versus the lighter side. Pluto is giving the gift of transformation and being reborn after kind of paying for your sins. Really a retribution, a total transmutation of darkness. This planet going so active in Capricorn is a huge thing too. We have Saturn there and the south node, Ketu. All of this energy together is a big shift. All of us should be very aware, this is not a time to back down. As you may know, Chiron has been in Aries and it will be there for the next 7 years. We really need to focus on being outwardly active with our thoughts and desires when it comes to healing and when it comes to doing our part on this earth. We can no longer hold back, so Chiron in Aries is a symbol of this wild woman or wild man, someone said earlier it’s like a cowboy on a horse. When you mix Aries and Chiron, it really is like a cowboy on a horse. Getting everything possible into the open and not holding anything in. People with anything Aries or Capricorn, right now you’re going to be feeling incredibly intense.


I think every sign is equally good and fine, but right now Capricorn might be getting hit a little hard. If you happen to be a Capricorn, you’re gonna want to be one of the good guys, and you’re going to want to make sure you understand the high vibration of the sign. This means creating materialization of your goals and inspire those around you. Not to create materialization of your goals at the expense of another. I’m excited for people to really start speaking up.

With the north node in Cancer though, let’s focus more on the positive. What do you know about emotions? What do you know about ancestral healing? What do you know about your emotional needs? Do you understand your moon? (I have a workshop for that!) More importantly, this is the biggest time for you to get through what’s blocking you emotionally. Emotions are the ruler of Cancer, so what do you know about your emotions right now? You have about 6 more months in this dynamic that’s changing in June. Then Rahu/Ketu go into Gemini/Sagittarius, which will be a whole other can of worms. Right now, we’re gonna have another new moon and solar eclipse at the end of the year on this Cancer/Capricorn axis. Everything we’ve been working toward this year will come to a culmination.

I think it’s important for everyone to start doing spells to attract what you want for the world and for yourself, just start practicing. I’ve been doing spells in my freezer and in my garden. Everyone should be doing that; I don’t think it’s dangerous. I think it’s really important for everyone right now to be building their intuition because that is the main tool of the Aquarian age that needs to be mastered, so you might as well start now. It’s just the beginning of a new age, so there’s a lot of chaos. Something’s gonna shift pretty majorly, and it will be in our lifetime.


We’ve got Uranus in Taurus, moving quite slowly. Uranus and Chiron are both retrograde right now. Chiron goes direct on December 12, and Uranus goes direct on January 10, 2020. Since Uranus is the awakener, that energy is still not all there yet. I think we all have to be more comfortable with that feeling of uncertainty. The last time Uranus was in Taurus we had the Great Depression and the stock market crash. It’s already 5 degrees in and it’s retrograde, so I feel like we are on the heels of something. I don’t like to be fatalistic but I think whether you’re into astrology or you’re spiritual or not, it seems obvious that something’s about to happen. We just need to be very with it and aware right now.


Jupiter is still in Sagittarius, and it’s one of the best and luckiest times to manifest your desires for the next four months. Right now it’s at 19 degrees. Basically, this is the dreamy period. There’s all this darkness going on and truths coming to light, but you have to understand how multifaceted you are and how multifaceted the universe is and how you can always switch gears. I recommend finding some of the teachers that you really look up to right now, and writing down some big lofty dreams and goals. And starting to work with watching your words and watching how you are basically casting spells every day with what you say. Sagittarius and Jupiter together are very much a Law of Attraction type energy, which is a super positive form of spirituality. Lovingly speak things into existence and manifest your desires.

We often hear that the leading cause of our problems is within ourselves. But so is the solution.

It may seem far-fetched, but the power to solve all of our physical and emotional issues, whether it’s health, relationships, career, finances, self-esteem, or something else, is in our hands.

Metaphysical counseling helps us uncover the root of our suffering and address it accordingly. Let’s find out how!

Great for: Transitions, getting to the next level, breaking free of limiting beliefs or blockages, empowering one to believe in themselves, having accountability through your goals

what is metaphysics

Metaphysics is the most abstract branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of existence. In Greek, the word metaphysics means “after the things of nature”.

Metaphysics examines the very nature of reality. It offers explanations for phenomena that cannot be explained by “natural” science or that are “beyond the physical”.

This science studies the individual as a whole, as a physical and spiritual being.

Certain types of chakra healing and other holistic, spiritual healing practices, personal development, and even business coaching are based on metaphysics. They typically include working on physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one’s being to resolve issues that person is facing.

The fundamental law of metaphysics is that every action or decision causes a reaction or an effect. Everything that happens to us (positive or negative) results from past actions or decisions in this lifetime or before the present life.

Similarly, everything we do now will have an effect on our life in the future. This law is better known as karma (action).

It is also believed that we must resolve our life’s issues in this lifetime.

What is metaphysical counseling?

Metaphysical counseling is based on the principle that everyone is sent by the Soul (higher self) to grow at all levels of their being through their life experiences and the lessons they learn in life.

Sometimes referred to as spiritual or transpersonal counseling, it represents a whole person approach – body, mind, and spirit. This type of counseling helps us better understand our life experiences by explaining aspects that our senses cannot perceive.

To put it simply, metaphysical counseling is a form of therapy that empowers us to empower ourselves.

There are many ways metaphysical counseling can take place. This will depend on the practitioner you choose, the kind of spirituality they practice, and the specific issues you may be looking to address.

Some counselors will advise you on the use of crystals for healing, while others will stress the importance of prayer.

This is why it is essential to find a counselor whose beliefs align with yours. Otherwise, your counseling might not have the desired effect.

What can metaphysical counseling help us with?

Metaphysical counseling is a type of holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. This psycho-spiritual approach helps people live a more authentic life by making conscious choices.

It is a self-empowering therapy that gives us the tools to identify and address the imbalances in our belief system that cause conflict and prevent us from achieving success and happiness. These beliefs are so subconscious that we aren’t always aware of them.

With the help of a therapist, people can discover the fundamental causes of their suffering and reach a solution through self-discovery.

It is all about learning to utilize our own self-healing power to reinstate harmony.

This can apply on multiple levels – physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Good metaphysical counseling will address all of those.

What does a metaphysical counselor do?

A metaphysical counselor is capable of healing not only the human mind but the body as well. They can help with various mental issues, including depression, anxiety, and loneliness, or any physical illness, by offering guidance and support to their clients.

A metaphysical counselor can help us navigate our way to health, success, strength, or anything else we desire. They also help clients understand their spiritual nature in this lifetime and beyond.

Each counselor will have their own approach; some will focus on the metaphysical properties of the things around you and how to use those to your benefit, while others will prefer working on your own inner world.

We are all exposed to various positive and negative influences that shape our daily actions, thoughts, and reality. Negative impacts lead to issues like anxiety, negativity, and close-mindedness.

Metaphysical counseling aims to free people from these negative influences and their effects.

Gaining a better understanding of ourselves and our connection to the physical and spiritual world surrounding us with the help of a metaphysical counselor gives us the ability to recognize these harmful influences and build a defense mechanism.

The root of these problems lies deeper than the physical, mental, or emotional sphere. To find a solution, we must target the source. And that lies at the deepest and wisest level of our being – the level of the Soul. Many life situations can only be addressed through the metaphysical laws, and the soul factor is always present. Metaphysical counselors teach us numerous powerful techniques and spiritual principles we can utilize to find the greater good in any challenging situation.

They give us the tools to find a solution to our life issues without a struggle, using less energy in the process.

What to expect from your first metaphysical counseling session

During the first session, the client answers a series of questions regarding their life and the issues that are troubling them.

The counselor listens attentively to understand not only the surface issue but also the stressful beliefs and patterns that are causing the problem.

Further steps depend on the specific type of counseling and the counselor you choose. But after a counseling session, the goal is for clients to experience a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

Not a one-size-fits-all approach

Metaphysics is a versatile form of therapy, so it can be adjusted to the client’s changing needs as the sessions develop.

Therapists use a variety of counseling skills and techniques. They usually determine which method is the most suitable, depending on the client’s condition at that moment.

For example, you may focus on meditation to prepare yourself for success but turn to more conversation-based therapy to deal with anxiety.

As you and your counselor work together, you will find what works best for you personally. This is one of the significant benefits of metaphysical approaches – they are highly flexible.

Metaphysics can be applied to almost any condition and is incredibly helpful with issues regarding:

mental health
challenges in the workplace
relationship issues
dealing with stress and anxiety
understanding emotional reactions
unlocking habitual patterns
