"Astrology for the Third Act of Life" Just Published on amazon.com



Midlife gives you a chance to deepen and connect with your Soul. But when are the best times to make changes? When is the time to pare down, turn inward and draw the threads of your life into a tapestry? When do you have new beginnings in mid-life? You may be forty, sixty or eighty-eight but it's time to become re-enthused about your next chapter of life! By combining astrology, Jungian psychology and personal memoir, Elizabeth shows how midlife gives us a chance to deepen and connect with our Soul.

Jungian astrologer, Elizabeth Spring MA, has written a book that describes the life passages we all experience in aging: starting with the Uranus Opposition at age 41, to the Chiron Return at age 51, the Second Saturn Return at age 59, the Uranus Square at 63 and the Uranus Return at 84...and beyond. Written in plain English for astrologers and non-astrologers alike--in fact--you don't even need to believe in astrology to get something out of this book.

You can look backwards at the story of your life and see what feels true, and then look forward to what might be coming. Experiment! Each age--each transit--embodies wisdom that can help you navigate these potentially rich times.  In describing each of the astrological transits of aging, Elizabeth gives tools to help you thrive through all these ages; what was once esoteric and unmapped territory is now known. So how and when can you do this?

 By understanding the timing and character of each astrological transit you are more empowered to meet the challenges and see the gifts of each age. As she says" My hope is that as we navigate these waters of the Third Act of Life we will muster the courage to experience both a deepening of our sense of Self and--dare I say it---a re-enchantment of our lives. This journey of aging, marked by the wisdom of the astrological journey, is about meeting all our challenges, but it's also the well with the deepest joy."

Seven Planets Retrograde this Summer!



Yes, starting with Mercury Retro on July 26th 7 planets will be retrograde this summer! Right now, there are 5 retros: Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. What does this mean? As I've written about before with retrogrades, think of all the words that start with RE and do those activities: reflect, reorganize, repair, redo, repeat, review, redefine...etc.  Turning inward is the key and sometimes retreating from action. Think again about your current course of action and let it brew a little. Is it truly right for you? Ponder and plan but don't jump ahead yet. And, this isn't the best times for risky new ventures, such as financial investments when Mars is retrograde. (JP Morgan always consulted his astrologer about this!)  Remember too that the word recreate counts here...as in recreation! Enjoy the process...www.elizabethspring.com.

Astrological Weather Patterns




What is happening to me now? Why am I feeling this way? These are questions we ask ourselves or our astrologer or our Tarot reader. I often remind myself how much my feelings are like a passing mood---like the clouds or changing weather patterns—they come and go. As an astrologer, I should be keenly aware of this as I observe the patterns of the Moon and planets continually moving through the heavens and our lives. But it’s not so easy to always remember that ‘this too shall pass.’

Late yesterday afternoon I fell into a low energy vortex and ended up on the couch unable to do anything but question the aching in my spine and the complaining of my psyche. I’ve been diagnosed with low iron anemia…and I’d forgotten to take my pills for weeks. And then there was ole Saturn and Mars squaring my Sun exactly. Saturn rules the bones, and squares bring out the tension or underlying problem…so there was the arthritis in my back and the pain. I reminded myself that I’m like a 1947 model car…what can I expect?

 I wasn’t happy despite coming up with multiple reasons for my sudden “downfall.” I lay down and forced myself to rest for 20 minutes then made myself get up and walk to the drugstore to buy iron supplements. On the walk home I popped one along with a chocolate Cadbury egg…and slowly I began to open like a frozen daffodil just cut and put into warm water. It was Easter, so one can indulge a bit, I told myself. Tomorrow I will start losing weight. Sigh…

Just as I walked in the shop at home a FaceBook friend dropped by, and in the course of our conversation she mentioned she hadn’t seen a blog post for me in quite a while. Yes! Someone had noticed. That felt good.

Someone had missed hearing from me! Here was more warmth, like sunshine, flowing in...even better than the chocolate egg.

Spring is slow in coming this year. Snow is forecast for tomorrow. My spine aches so intensely I must lie down again, and plan on calling the doctor tomorrow.  But I’m going to return to the drugstore and buy sunglasses that will change the color of the world from mundane gray to warm amber hues. Simple solutions! Followed by the hard phone call…

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference”…and God bless friends who remember us…and notice when we are missing.
