A little head’s up on the office schedule for July and the first part of August 2020. Winding up my family’s estate matters will involve my traveling away from the office July 1 through July 6 and then again July 28 through August 4 with the possibility of a third trip in-between. Feel free to leave phone messages on the office machine or email me, but if I don’t respond right away, you will understand why. Thank you all for your patience as I attend to these time sensitive legal matters. I will get back with you as soon as I can. – Bonnie
RULER #2 – RETROGRADES FROM JUNE 18, 2020 THROUGH JULY 11, 2020
Our second Retrograde Ruler #2 for 2020 is almost upon us and thankfully it only lasts approximately 3 weeks. This retrograde gives us the opportunity to make sure that we are following our personal methodology according to our Fixed Star contract with regard to our Decision Making processes.
The key condition of this retrograde is the interruption and/or the blockage of communication. On a global level it can mean anything from solar flares that play havoc with electronic communications, to world leaders losing important contact among themselves and acting on less than valid information. Movement of important documents or the necessary completion of projects and goals are often victims of this retrograde. Impatience is clearly an enemy of the powerful during this time.
In personal terms, mail is often disrupted or lost as well as a breakdown of communication via phone or email. Lost checks as in “it’s in the mail” are common cries during this period. Listed below are other possible conditions influenced by this retrograde.
It also often causes most people to get very edgy because things aren’t running smoothly. The hurry-up attitude will add to pushing you over the cliff. The Universe is giving you the opportunity to take a deep breath and move with clarity. Before you dive in, is there water in the pool? Remember the outcome in the children’s story of the tortoise and the hare. It will serve as a valuable format during the Ruler #2 retrograde.
1. Back up all of your electronic equipment before this retrograde begins. This is critical. Do not purchase electronic equipment during this retrograde.
2. Use extreme caution before signing important documents. Don’t sign papers you don’t clearly understand them. If this can be delayed until this retrograde has turned direct, it would be wise to do so.
3. Slow down your actions. Make sure that you are truly hearing/reading what the other party is trying to impart.
4. Get on top of your time management.
5. Watch all financial details.
6. Check repairs to make sure they have been done as stated.
7. This is not a good time to start new projects.
8. This is not a good time to undergo health procedures that require major surgery.
9. This is a great time to go back over previously started projects to fine-tune or make any necessary adjustments to them. Be aware that you may have to do this several times.
10. This is also a good time to go back to your Fixed Star Analysis and review your position in the Decision Making area. Time to correct or fine tune your agreed methodology so that you can move forward more efficiently when Ruler #2 goes direct.
Ruler #2 retrograde will transit one of the ten different event angles in your personal Bicircadian chart. That specific event angle will give you insight into which area you need to be extra mindful of the decision making process. Reviewing your Personal Bicircadian Calendar for Ruler #2 position during this transit time will give you that event angle information. Don’t have your calendar? Call or email us for ordering details.
The more we are aware of retrograde conditions and their possible influences, the more we are able to navigate through our life experiences with greater control and clarity.
RULER #9 – RETROGRADES FROM JUNE 22, 2020 THROUGH NOVEMBER 29, 2020
Once more, a word about Retrogrades in general before getting into the specifics of the newest one coming right up in a few days. While it proves to be accurate that the impress of retrograde energy can sometimes become difficult, it is very important to know where in your personal Bicircadian chart all retrograde rulers are currently moving through. In order for you to understand retrograde usefulness, notice in which life event angle the retrograde ruler is currently traveling. Your Personal Bicircadian Calendar will give you this information. It lists all rulers, tells you if it is retrograde and what event angle it is in. Call me to order yours if you don’t have one.
Having this individualized calendar information provides you with knowledge of the events that will be emphasized for you personally during the retrograde activity. That way, you use the energy opportunities in that area for things needing your attention that you have previously ignored rather than referencing negative and difficult situations most often associated with retrograde energy. Gregge taught that specific events are highlighted in order to give us yet another opportunity to be aware of what we have ignored throughout all incarnations, including this one. The wise person uses retrograde periods to develop a more efficient, productive, and satisfying lifestyle.
Ruler #9 appears to go retrograde, from our vantage point on Planet Earth, beginning June 22, 2020, through November 29, 2020. The energy impress of this ruler emphasizes areas of spirituality, humanitarianism, and emotionalism. It is the Spirituality energy that identifies how we agreed to communicate with the Universe. It shows where we create our unique spiritual connection and also where we can sometimes be so emotional that we become stuck in unproductive patterns.
The following information is provided below as possible conditions to be aware of during the retrograde activity of Ruler 9, our next retrograde opportunity for 2020:
“This retrograde works way beneath the surface and more of its effect is felt than seen. In global areas it effects the state of humanity, often bringing out some of the worst in mankind and initiating some of the best in us at the same time. Hidden agenda’s can manifest in cruel actions and the affliction of spiritual pain can be overwhelming. Emotions about the smallest or largest issues can go on a rampage leaving logical thinking as a last resort. Understanding that the Universe is forever moving in perfect form, we can suffer the mean and the ugly by reinforcing our own conviction that right and love WILL prevail.
On personal levels it is time to look deep within. The caverns of your spirit need to be rediscovered. You should be looking for the motivation for your life, not from mundane sources, but from the source that gives you the breath of life. You are a co-creator with the Universe and for as powerful as that makes you, you are also no more than the smallest of life spores in an infinite forest of life-chain activity. Forget the books and mantras and all these other turban wrapped concepts and get down to your own bone marrow. Life is replicating itself there. Cells are being born and the YOU of tomorrow is trying to surge to the surface of your skin. Can you feel that? Can you accept its design? Does the process delight you?
This retrograde period is the one time this year that you’ll truly get to go back to the raw clay, before the Master’s fingers begin to poke and pull and mold. It’s your one clear opportunity for incomparable self-discovery. This is the chance to move inside the seed before it breaks it’s covering, drinks its first drink of water and confronts the light of day. If you find the wonder in this you will be rewarded. If you shirk from going into those deep caverns of your soul there will be nothing to possess. The Lord giveth but (unfortunately) it is you who taketh away.” – Gregge Tiffen
RULER #6 – RETROGRADES FROM MAY 14, 2020 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 12, 2020
Our fourth retrograde to begin in 2020 is Ruler #6 and lasts approximately 5 months. This will give us plenty of time to make the necessary Fixed Star adjustments in the areas of our relationships. Go to your Personal Fixed Star Analysis and review the methodology you agreed to use with regard to the Relationship area. Check your Personal Bicircadian Calendar to see in which event angle the 6th Ruler is currently traveling through as this is the life event area that will be highlighted for this activity. Put your focus there to make the necessary refinements. This is not an easy retrograde but it can certainly help us make wonderful improvements and discoveries within the realm it touches. Don’t have your personal calendar? Call or email us to order yours.
Gregge provided us with the following information to be used in our awareness, understanding and navigation of these possible conditions during the retrograde activity of Ruler #6:
RULER #6 appears to go retrograde from our vantage point on Planet Earth, beginning May 14, 2020, through September 12, 2020. The energy impress of this ruler focuses on close personal relationships (and self love), and as such, can take its place as one of the most emotional of all the retrogrades. It also has influence on your home, your health, your family and your atmosphere. If you can avoid starting (starting is the key word here) any major home projects during this period or buying and selling your home it would be to your advantage. The same can be said about medical procedures that are not emergencies or life threatening in nature, as recuperation time tends to be slower during a Ruler #6 retrograde.
“On a global scale it tends to pull attention away from large national issues and involve the individual in personal matters of the heart. On the surface, that is not too dangerous, but if we are depending upon world leaders to be WORLD leaders, we can’t be too comfortable knowing that they are struggling through bouts with their mate or ordeals with their significant other. But then humans are human and we are all in the same boat. It is a pity that there isn’t some global valentine that we could send them to make them happy.
Personally, issues can be very difficult. If you’re in a relationship you need to tread lightly. This goes for those family dynamics as well. Feathers can be ruffled in the slightest breeze and misunderstanding is commonplace. Take a long look at timing. Many confrontations can be avoided if you will just delay your comments an hour or so. Remember that the distance between one’s lips and their ear is only about 6 inches. A hasty word however can dig a chasm so wide it can’t ever be filled.
Creative endeavors can suffer somewhat under this retrograde. Give yourself more space to do the things you want to do and be kind to yourself. Creative stress can be devastating because it often promotes self-destructive tendencies. When making purchases for your personal closet or vanity don’t buy on impulse. Sleep on it because it may not look at all enticing the next day. Patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day but Pompeii was destroyed overnight.” – Gregge Tiffen
PS: On May 16, 2020 make sure you take a moment to look at the crescent moon in the evening. Trust me, it will make you smile.
RULER #3 – EGO AND SELF EXPRESSION – RETROGRADES FROM MAY 13, 2020 THROUGH JUNE 24, 2020
The 3rd Ruler has not been in a retrograde position since the late fall of 2018. Please take deep breaths everyone as we move through this very touchy and potentially explosive time period. Although the 3rd Ruler is a relatively short retrograde (approximately 6 weeks) it is a potent one.
The energy impress of the 3rd Ruler emphasizes the Ego and Self-Expression areas in both our Fixed Star Analysis and Bicircadian chart. By definition, ego is the act by which you make your statements of conviction.
“This Ruler #3 retrograde focus is on issues of people getting along with people. It tends to turn the simplest of conversations into bitter confrontations. The reason for this is that this retrograde draws out the worst issues of the “spoiled child” that lies within each of us.
Sometimes the issue simply ends up in which one party feels that they are not getting enough attention while the other party feels they are overworked, underpaid, and should be given a vacation that includes unlimited spending money and no time limits as to when they need to return. This is very difficult, to say the least.
Even those who deal on national and international levels don’t escape this effect. It can often deteriorate into who has the biggest gun and whose ball it is; and if I can’t play I’ll take my ball and go home.
During this retrograde it will be the little things that count. Every molehill is a potential mountain and every itch can become a raging infection. Self-discipline is a MUST. Bite your tongue and count to 10 or 15 or whatever. Stop playing the “poor little me” game, as everyone has his or her own little red wagon to pull.
Remember that everything is more sensitive than it appears. Glass is really fine crystal and the ice over the water is only a reflection. Step very lightly!” – GT
Welcome to January 2020! It’s a brand new calendar year and most people use this month to make their new year resolutions. Some resolve to lose some extra pounds, quit a bad habit, clean up their finances, find the perfect job, get more training or education, improve a current love relationship, end a bad one, or find a new one and the list goes on. All of these are honorable resolutions and most worthy of our intentions, attentions and actions.
Adding the thoughts of being aware and looking forward to a wonderful new cycle filled with many opportunities for self discovery is also an important resolution. Since the Universe instills us with the same qualities IT has, infinite opportunities are always being made available to each of us. Learning to recognize them as they appear and taking the appropriate action to incorporate them into our life experience is a worthy pursuit. So is knowing where and when to draw the line from influences outside ourselves without personalizing what is being said by others. It is simply the recognition that those conversations are really just another person’s view of life. So regardless of whether we agree or disagree with what they have to say or show us, both the individual and the conversation of opportunity will always provide us with the other point of the two points required for reflection. From that two pointed line, our personal midpoint can be determined so that we will know where we are as individuals. “Life is truly a hall of mirrors with each of us serving as a point of reflection for one another.” – Gregge Tiffen
We will be completely clear of all retrogrades from January 12, 2020 through February 16, 2020. On February 17, 2020 Ruler #2 will begin its retrograde motion. A separate email will be sent in the next week or so outlining the duration and conditions to be aware of during the Ruler #2 retrograde.
May the month of January 2020 be the start of an exciting and fulfilling year of self discovery. And yes indeed, you are a very special, unique and intricate part of the omnipotent whole. My very best to each and EveryONE of you.
The following is a brief introduction to special information Gregge has provided for us to use with our Personal Bicircadian Charts and calendars as it pertains to the position of the First Ruler at The Winter Solstice. This ruler’s position on December 21, 2019 is at 1.8 degrees. Pull out your Bicircadian chart* and locate that degree on your natal chart. Now look at the life event angle in which that 1.8 degree it is located. The angles are identified with roman numeral symbols on the outside of the chart wheel. (Your personal Bicircadian calendar will automatically give you this information) The life event angle at that 1.8 degree mark is where your new cycle starting December 21, 2019 until December 20, 2020 will be. Look at the list below to identify the life event angle and the characteristics of the life events it represents for you in the coming new cycle.
ANGLE #I – This is a cycle to adjust your activities around self focus and self intensity in order to get the most out of your year ahead.
ANGLE #II – This is a cycle to be careful about taking on more than you can do or more than you need. Acquiring excesses will cause you delays.
ANGLE #III -This is a cycle where there will be an intense increase in your creative output. You will see spontaneous results before you understand what you are doing.
ANGLE #IV – This is a cycle where you will find yourself doing things that you avoided doing in 2019 as it pertains to world systems of all kinds.
ANGLE #V – This is a cycle where a geographical house move is very possible. You will also find yourself moving into new attitudes that have significance for a very long time.
ANGLE #VI – This is a cycle for positive selfishness and getting things that enhance your vitality and self improvement.
ANGLE #VII – This is a cycle where you practically stumble upon startling information from sources that were previously obscure to you.
ANGLE #VIII – This is a cycle of monetary abundance that might take control over you unless you exercise a great deal of discipline. Expect a year of material gain.
ANGLE #IX – This is a cycle where you will find yourself very sensitive to world events. Be aware of how affected you allow yourself to become.
ANGLE #X – This is a cycle where you feel like a reluctant dragon either being dragged into the future by a chariot or tied behind it with ropes. Decide upon your fashion of participation.
* If you have not had your Bicircadian Chart done, wish to order your Personal Bicircadian Calendar, or if you would like a consultation regarding these life event angles and ruler positions indicated on your personal Bicircadian Charts or Calendars, please call our office to set up an appointment.
Have a peaceful and beautiful Winter Solstice and my very best to each and EveryONE of you! We look forward to being of assistance to you in 2020!
PS: Our offices will be closed from December 21, 2019, through December 27th open on December 30th and then closed again until January 2, 2020.
THOUGHT FOR DECEMBER 2019: “Winter Solstice is the time when you give up what you have and accept what is being born as the new power within you, the new awareness within you and the new person within you.” – GT
“Maturity is an enormously important element in metaphysics. The change from where you are non-metaphysically to metaphysically is a matter of maturity. Take responsibility and realize that this is totally your life from beginning to end. Once you get into that, your life can change dramatically. Happiness becomes a commonplace thing in your life beyond what you have yet to experience.
It becomes a value in life to have an identification of individual direction. That will never stay the same because changes occur event to event. Although I like to talk in terms of the ultimate, there are bad days. My panacea for that is to stay in bed, pull the covers over your head, and forget it. Tomorrow, start all over again. The idea to go around and think you are goin to change the world when you are having a bad day is ridiculous. You are just having a bad day. You made a mistake. So what? That is not the end of the world. What you have to understand is that, for the most part, you are focusing and trying. That is all that really counts. You are not, by any stretch of the imagination, supposed to be a saint.
You show me anybody who makes a grand effort to focus and give only to other people, and I will show you a bell without a clapper. Their life is practically worthless. They try to build their life on the basis of other people’s response to them, and that is how they live. They haven’t got much in the way of their own life. The bell is there. The clapper isn’t.
You don’t go out and push the darkness back. You glow, and the darkness pulls back. If you are good as individuals, everybody close to you benefits and responds to that. They use that as they see fit, and you are very happy in letting them use it because you didn’t really give. It was just YOU being YOU.” – Gregge Tiffen
