Planetary Update

Originally Published 3/11/1999


Dear Cyberfriends,

  Those of you who have been with me awhile are aware that I am a psychic, not an astrologer. However, I do believe there are certain planetary events, which affect everyone’s lives. Though I do not believe the planets control our lives, they can influence us and we can use that knowledge in a beneficial way. My clients appreciate being informed of the events which have the potential to impact them personally or in business. I thought that those of you have not yet had a personal reading with me might also benefit from this information.

  One of these planetary events, which occurs three times a year, is Mercury retrograde. Mercury just turned retrograde yesterday and will be in that position until April 2, 1999 when it goes direct. Since Mercury is the planet of the mind, this will be a time for intense emotions and confusing communications, as well as increased possibility of electronic or mechanical breakdowns. While this is a useful time to review, rewrite and research, ie. to go inward, it’s important to keep things simple. It’s a good time to write things in pencil, literally and metaphorically, because when Mercury turns direct, new and hidden information sometimes emerges.

  If you are feeling ungrounded, apprehensive, or confused, check out my grounding meditation at I have included in this email a beautiful poem and I hope it touches your soul the way it did to mine.

The Most Beautiful Flower

The park bench was deserted as I
sat down to read

Beneath the long, straggly
branches of an old willow tree

Disillusioned by life with good
reason to frown,

For the world was intent on
dragging me down.

And if that weren’t enough to
ruin my day,

A young boy out of breath
approached me, all tired from play.

He stood right before me with his
head tilted down

And said with great excitement,
“Look what I found!”

In his hand was a flower and
what a pitiful sight,

With its petals all worn – not
enough rain, or too little light.

Wanting him to take his dead
flower and go off to play,
I faked a small smile and then
shifted away

But instead of retreating he sat
next to my side

And placed the flower to his nose

And declared with overacted

“It sure smells pretty and it’s
beautiful, too.

That’s why I picked it; here,
it’s for you.”

The weed before me was dying or

Not vibrant of colors: orange, yellow or red.

But I knew I must take it, or he
might never leave.

So I reached for the flower and
replied, “Just what I need.”

But instead of him placing the
flower in my hand,
He held it mid-air without reason
or plan.

It was then that I noticed for
the very first time

That weed-toting boy could not
see: he was blind.

I heard my voice quiver; tears
shone in the sun

As I thanked him for picking the
very best one.

“You’re welcome,” he smiled
and then he ran off to play,

Unaware of the impact he’d had on
my day.

I sat there and wondered how he
managed to see

A self-pitying woman beneath an
old willow tree.

How did he know of my
self-indulged plight?

Perhaps from his heart, he’d been
blessed with true sight.

Through the eyes of a blind
child, at last I could see

The problem was not with the
world; the problem was me.

And for all those times I myself had been blind,

I vowed to see the beauty in

And appreciate every second
that’s mine.

And then I held that wilted
flower up to my nose

And breathed in the fragrance of
a beautiful rose

And smiled as I watched
that young boy,

Another weed in his hand,

About to change the life of an
unsuspecting old man.

  If this message has inspired you,
Or touched you in anyway
or if you feel that it can
brighten up
someone else’s day,
please forward it.
