An Opening for Successful Communication

Mercury is in Scorpio and in retrograde until November 19th. We know that when Mercury is in retrograde it has a challenging effect upon all forms of communication. Today, we receive some relief in this area as Mercury is forming a nice aspect with Pluto. This aspect is ideal for any communication and healing efforts. This is a great day to engage yourself in any intuitive healing work. This aspect can also help bring success in our creative process. If you are trying to sell anything, to introduce a new product, or create any kind of art, today’s cosmic energy is supporting you. We all have the power of creation and the Light inside of us. Like the light of the sun trying to make its way into the room, once the obstacles have been removed and the curtains have been drawn, the sun is free to shine. When our fears and barriers are removed, we can shine our Light in the same way.  



November 11

Stay Tuned In

Today, stay tuned in, stay alert, and pay attention. Today, Mercury is crossing over the face of the Sun which only happens 13 times in an entire century! The next time this cosmic event occurs will be in 2032. This crossing signifies that an important message or vital information is within our reach. Spiritually, we are encouraged to stay tuned in, be open minded, and be free of judgments and personal agendas so that we may receive the messages and guidance we need for our spiritual journey. In addition, since Mercury is currently retrograde in the sign of Scorpio, we want to be on the lookout and avoid crises or detrimental misunderstandings. Cosmic openings are gifts. They are special opportunities to aid us in our spiritual development. The Creator sends us help in many forms. We only need to be open to seeing and hearing the guidance that will benefit us and generate the blessings we seek.



November 12

What Is Real Security?

With the full moon in Taurus, we gain the ability to achieve real security. Taureans tend to think that security is derived only from material things, but with the sun in Scorpio, we can understand that true security comes from the Light we generate from our ability to change and transform. This full moon provides us with the tremendous positive energy of unification and completion. It assists us in accepting changes, gifts us with the willingness to transform what is unpleasant, and helps us to detach from our material possessions. These qualities take us on the path to achieve peace and tranquility inside and out. Taurus and Scorpio are opposites on the zodiac wheel. They are like a right and left hand working together. The Scorpio allows us to make the necessary changes and draw the Creator’s Light, while the Taurus gives us the certainty, stability, and calm waters we need for balance. Together, they can give us an opening to experience the authentic security only the Light can give us. 



November 13

Creating Circuitry in Our Relationships

We all desire and wish to feel love. Our ideal relationships are the ones in which we feel fulfillment and there is the opportunity to give of our hearts, as well as receive what we need from our partner. With the challenging aspect of today between Venus and Neptune, there is a danger of falling into an illusionary reality, especially in the area of romance and relationships. Be cautious from falling head over heels with something that does not even exist. Awaken your logic today, and think twice, even three times. Think about the long-term process. Is your head in clouds while you are making decisions? Illusions lack any substance so we lose so much energy maintaining something that does not exist. We fight for what is not really there, sacrificing our peace and happiness. We feel like a victim in illusionary relationships because we are always giving and working to keep up the lie, yet we never receive ourselves. There is no balance in energy but we choose to ignore how we feel and what we see. Take a moment today and examine your love life. Be honest with what is there and how you feel. Do not settle for a second-rate love. Aspire for real balance. Allow yourself to see beyond the illusion for the sake of creating real circuitry, real happiness, and true love.

It All Begins With a Thought

One of the most important and fascinating concepts in the study of Kabbalah is the Tree of Life, the system of 10 levels of our existence. We learn that the world is comprised of 10 dimensions and that everything originates from the highest dimension called Keter. Keter correlates to what we think of as a “thought.” Before anything is manifested in the lowest dimension of our physical world, known as Malchut, we need to first think of it, envision it, plan it, and bring it into action via these 10 levels. Because of the beautiful aspect that Mercury, the planet of thought, is forming with Neptune and Saturn, today, we have the potential to formulate great ideas, visions, and imaginations, as well as the ability to formulate a plan and know what steps need to be taken to turn them into reality. Take advantage of today’s cosmic support and take the time to think, day dream, and envision all that is possible. Meditate to connect to divine inspiration. Today, the idea can come, as well as the knowledge to manifest it. The Tree of Life is the process and secret of all creation. If used properly, it allows us to access authentic power and achieve lasting fulfillment.

November 15 - The Day of Noach's Flood

The Choice to Build or Destroy Is in Your Hands

Historically, today is the day when Noah’s Flood occurred. The flood occurred on the 17th day of the lunar month of Scorpio. On this day, the level of human negativity reached a peak and it led to the complete destruction of all living creatures on the face of the earth, via a flood. The power of water can be incomprehensible. Water nurtures us, keeps us alive, heals us, and even protects us from any harm, as in our mother’s womb. Our bodies are even composed of 65% water! However, water can be destructive, God forbid, in the form of drowning and natural disasters. Today, the Sun is still in Scorpio, a water sign, and the Moon just entered another water sign, Cancer. We are challenged today with the overflowing emotional effect of water. We want to learn to balance our internal emotions. Any extreme manifestation of our emotions can potentially lead to a fall and destruction. We want our emotions to help us grow and develop spiritually, not pull us into a pit of passions and obsessions. The secret to using emotions for positivity and to keep balance is simple, but not always easy. If we use our feelings and emotions in order to be better aware of the needs of others so we can better help and support them, we prevent our emotions from controlling us. In this way, our emotions are tools to help us activate the Creator within and generate Light for others, the world, and ourselves.  



November 16 - Shabbat Vayera

The Power of Control

The month of Scorpio has many gifts and is rich with spiritual opportunity for our advantage. Today, and every day of the month, we are all influenced by the positive and negative elements of the month’s sign. We must learn how to navigate the energy and connect as much as possible to its positivity. For Scorpio, let us focus on the concept of control, because the scorpion has a huge desire to control. This desire can manifest in a negative way when try to control others and our environments. This type of control is really manipulation and not true care for other people and for the Creator’s plan. You may wonder then: How is control something positive and able to be used in a constructive way? Our teacher Rav Berg in his book, Kabbalistic Astrology, gives us some of the best guidance on the matter of control and Scorpio: “Scorpio must learn to detach from their emotions. Whenever you experience a surge of anger, passion, or hatred, you must endeavor to control it. Scorpios should stop manufacturing crises and dramas that eventually overwhelm them and those around them.” Let us all listen to this advice today, and for the rest of the month. In learning to control our own negative emotions, instead of others, we can achieve lasting peace and the greatest of spiritual heights.

October 20 - Sukkot & Hoshana Rabba


Sign the Deal

Today’s beautiful aspect between Venus and Saturn brings the energy of grounding, conviction, and commitment. Those of us who are in a romantic relationship can benefit immensely from the cosmos today. Venus in Scorpio allows us to see the truth about our partners and helps us to take action to move to the next level in our relationship. Venus is a reflection of our relationships and financial affairs. If you were looking for a day to make a decision, sign a deal, commit further, or move forward in the area of romance or money, today is the day! Saturn gives shape, form, and structure to our desires and goals. It brings us closer towards manifestation and this energy is within our reach. The planets manifest various qualities and attributes of the Creator. It is in this way we are able to experience the totality of the Creator, but in a digestible way. The celestial bodies are the interface through which the Creator’s blessings are channeled to us. If you lack the ability to manifest in your life, seize this day to finally make your dreams come true. 


October 21 - Simchat Torah

A Celebration of Light 

Today is Simchat Torah and it is one of the most beautiful and joyous holidays in the kabbalistic calendar. It occurs at the end of the “high holidays” and is a finality of the 22-day process of spiritual rebuilding for the year. This process gave us the opportunity to cleanse, recharge, and reconnect to the Light force of the Creator for the upcoming year. Today is a celebration of Light and a day that concludes all the effort and connections that we made over the last 21 days. It does not matter if you were actively present during the last 21 days, for today, we can all tap what is available in the universe. Cosmically, we are being beautifully supported by both Venus and Neptune. These celestial bodies represent love and union with the divine force of God. Venus represents human love. It is the love for people, nature, earth, and all the physical manifestations of the Light. Neptune represents our love for the creation process, the spiritual realm, the beautiful unseen order of life, and for a higher consciousness. Take the time today to celebrate and be joyful! Appreciate and rejoice life as it is with all of its beautiful gifts. It is a day to connect the dots in life and become aware that we are all connected. We can more easily see the Light force of God in every moment and every experience of our lives. Life may appear random but it is, in fact, in perfect order. It is divinely organized and created solely for our benefit and spiritual growth. If we knew how perfect the system of life is, we would stare up at the sky and laugh! This is the joy Simchat Torah offers everyone today.



October 22

The Name of the Game Is Humility

The last few weeks signified an important cosmic period in time, according to Kabbalah. Last night we ended the period known as the High Holidays which consisted of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, the seven days of Sukkot, and Simchat Torah. These high holidays were gifts from the Creator allowing us to enter the year more connected to our soul’s purpose and more spiritually aligned. It is a process that occurred globally for all of humanity whether we participated fully or not. Today is the first day our new consciousness and selves are being put to the test. With the Moon being in the sign of Leo, we are being reminded that one of the most important ingredients for growth and achieving true success is humility. There is so much that we are not able to see and understand. Humility allows a higher power to enter our lives. Humility allows us to be learners and to absorb the messages all around us, for every moment in life offers its lessons. Every person we meet can teach us something. The sign of Leo is one of the signs that struggles with this truth the most, for the lion is the king of the jungle; what can peasants possibly teach the king? The Sun, which is the planet that rules Leo, is the center of the universe. This massive ego blocks us from being people who learn and listen to others. For the next few days, remember that humility is the name of the game. Growth cannot exist if we already think we are larger than life and smarter than everyone around us. The Light is accessible for us all the time, but only if we open a window for it. Reducing our ego allows us to admit the truth that we all need help, none of us can do it alone, and we do not know it all. 


October 23

Riding the Wave of Change

The Sun enters the sign of Scorpio today. Scorpio is a very powerful sign that has the potential to either build or destroy. This is precisely why Scorpio is the sign that is synonymous with the power of transformation. Scorpio is easily able to eliminate what is superfluous and rebuild a brand new reality. Death and rebirth are the ways of Scorpio. Since it is also the beginning of the fall season when the days become colder and shorter, we understand that our spiritual work is now in the process of concealment. Now is the time to go within. Just as the trees are ridding themselves of dead leaves, we, too, are encouraged to rid ourselves of physical and emotional “dead leaves”. Remember, life is but a cycle, a circle. If we want to be ready for the spring, we need to let go of the old to make room for what is new and coming. The universe is awakening us to be proactive about change and transformation. Transformation will occur no matter what we do. Therefore, the question is, will it be forced upon us via chaos and crisis, God forbid? Or will we engage in the process, forge forward in our spiritual awakening, and initiate our own internal healing? Whatever we choose, Scorpio is intent upon transformation. It will happen either way. Allow the wave to come. Ride it. Let it take you to places you have never been before.



October 24

Your Inner Psychic

Our internal world is highly functioning, today. With the Moon in opposition to Neptune, we can be extremely imaginative and creative, however, be careful not to create realities in our minds that do not actually exist. The ability to sense our environment and feel others around us comes more naturally to us today. We all become a little bit psychic, being able to access information that is beyond the confines of time and space. What is the spiritual way to handle this gift? Ask the Creator to become a channel of positivity and messages that can uplift and assist those around you. Ask for the ability to tap into your spiritual vision so you may help someone from a more elevated place. We are no good to others if we are not healthy and whole ourselves. When we take the time to work on ourselves through spirituality and self-love, we are then able to successfully help others on their path.


October 25

Take Action!

We are a few days away from entering the sign of Scorpio on the kabbalistic calendar. The last few days of Libra lie in front of us. Today, be willing to come closer to achieving some of the spiritual goals for the month of Libra while we still have the time. “We must learn to trust the Light and must understand that making mistakes is one of the ways we grow. We must take action in order to reveal Light,” Rav Berg teaches us in his book Kabbalistic Astrology. Today, it will behoove us to examine the areas where we are too concerned with what others think about us. Observe when we allow ourselves to become confused by other people’s opinions. In the month of Libra, we strive for harmony, peace, and to make people happy. Because of this, we may lack the ability to dance to the beat of our own drummer. Today, take an action without worrying what others might say or if you are going to make a mistake. After all, there are no mistakes, just lessons to be learned and new opportunities to be experienced. Let us overcome the negative qualities of Libra, while we still have the chance. Use the wisdom within and the guidance of others in a balanced way. The opinions of others are meant to inform us and improve our vision, not paralyze us with indecision. Remedy the confusion by taking action today! 


October 26 - Shabbat Beresheet

The Untraditional Approach

We all grew up learning certain belief systems and developing our own mind sets. Some of us are more inclined to be traditional, fixed minded, and rule followers. Today, the traditional approach to life is being challenged by Uranus which is facing off with the Sun. Pay attention if anything comes to offset your traditional way of thinking and acting. Be open to the new and the unexpected. Welcome innovative ideas and be sure not to rule them out immediately. Additionally, take the time to examine the areas of life where you are closed minded, too traditional, and not open to new ways. Ask the universe to give you the ability to access the untraditional way of thinking in order to progress in those areas that you have been stuck. Oftentimes, we hold on to old ways out of fear. We are afraid to change, afraid to let go, and afraid of being hurt. When we see that fear is holding us back from change and experiencing all the goodness life can offer, maybe, just maybe, we will be willing to try something new.

Take a Deep Breath; Patience Is Required

It is definitely a high-voltage day. The intense energy of today can potentially awaken tension and anxiety, but if we learn how to balance it in the right way, it can lead to great insight and spiritual vision. Mercury and Uranus are opposing one another, which is speeding up our thinking process. When planets oppose each other, it signifies a struggle and a conflict. The question is: Are we willing to solve the conflict and overcome the struggle? The spiritual opportunity, today, is to apply self-discipline and patience. Be a force that strives for balance, and with this intention, you will avoid the potential turbulences that this opposition might create. Our consciousness does create our reality. Our consciousness allows us to change our destinies and enter into new and different “movies” of life. There are parallel universes happening simultaneously. The magic of life is that we can choose the kind of world we want to live in. When we choose to focus upon love, balance, and peace, we choose a life in which positive energy reigns supreme. This is our great underestimated power as human beings. The choice is always in our own hands.


October 7

Going Outside of Yourself

Today, we need to learn to pay attention to those around us, especially when we are feeling heavily focused upon ourselves and our own needs. Do you know those moments when you feel that you have all the energy and excitement you could ever need? When you feel you have all the answers, the universe is supporting you, and the wind is at your back? These great moments are gifts and really help us to move forward in life. But what happens when, in the middle of one of these great times of positive energy, someone asks us for our help? What if someone asks us to slow down a little to lend them a hand? Having to help another can feel like it will only inhibit us and slow us toward reaching our goal. It is in these moments that we find the test of life. Today, pay attention to these tests. You might not realize it at the moment, but the universe is always sending you angels to help you along your way. Stay aware of your environment and who is coming into your life while you focus on your individual desires. If you stay open and are willing to stop and give energy to others now and again, you will arrive even faster where you intend to go. That’s the paradox and beauty of creation. The gift is always found within the sharing with others and going outside of ourselves. When we help another with their dream, the Light will help us with ours. No matter how fast we think we are, we are never faster and better than the speed of Light!



October 8 - Yom Kippur Eve

Love and Hate: Avoiding the Extremes

The feeling of extreme love is on the horizon today. Love is a beautiful emotion when expressed in a balanced and gentle way. Strong and powerful expressions of love are only positive when they expressed with sensitivity to the other person. After all, is smothering someone really love? Today, Venus, the planet of love, is moving into the sign of Scorpio. Scorpio is a tough energetic neighborhood for Venus to reside, as it naturally yearns for balance and peace. Scorpio will awaken intense emotions, that if directed in a negative way, can lead our love to the dark side of obsessiveness and jealousy. Pay close attention to your emotions towards your loved ones today. Pay attention specifically to the way that you express your love and if you suddenly feel your love turn to hatred. When an extreme energy source meets the "planet of love," it can easily awaken feelings of hatred and revenge, which we should all avoid. Our actions and thoughts are like boomerangs, we cast them out at our targets, but find they only come right back to us. Learning to conquer our hatred and turn towards love can be the greatest act of self-care we can ever take. 


October 9 - Yom Kippur

Dulling Our Knives

Yesterday, we mentioned how Venus had entered into the sign of Scorpio. This can be an intense time for emotions and even extreme or brutal if our love turns into hatred. However, today, Venus in Scorpio is having a beautiful aspect with the moon in Pisces. We can now access the power to become softer and kinder in our interactions with others. This energy can be utilized proactively if we make the choice to express our inner feelings and emotions with a little gentleness. Venus in Scorpio still compels us to say the truth and to be direct, but with the moon in Pisces, we are able to dull our sharp edges. This positive influence of Pisces can also affect our financial affairs by helping us tap into our intuition and gut feelings. Pisces is the most evolved sign of the zodiac and offers the gifts of spiritual maturity, love, and mercy. When it appears in the chart, it sweetens and purifies whatever it touches. This is the power of love. When love comes on to the scene, everything just gets better.



October 10

Protecting Your Energy 

We all feel the desire to help others and assist them with their challenges. This is a positive desire and feeling, but it must be balanced or else it can become destructive. Today, with the challenging aspect of the Sun and Neptune, we all should be aware of the potential to help someone in an imbalanced way. Remind yourself that while it is a good thing to be there for others, you must also set healthy boundaries. We have to be careful while in the process of serving other people’s needs that we do not deplete our own energy and ignore our own needs. We may think that we are doing an act of sharing by listening to someone’s troubles and offering our help, but today, we must stop to think: Is it really helping them? Is my support allowing them to become stronger so that they may surmount their own challenge independently? If you have a relationship in your life in which the other person is dependent upon you in an unhealthy and imbalanced way, take a stand and decide what will more accurately help them instead. The answer might even be to advise them to seek professional help. Oftentimes, saying no is helping someone. Sometimes, saying nothing at all is what the person needs to hear. Sometimes, not giving is the greatest gift. True love and care is understanding we need to help people to walk their own journey in life, not to walk it for them.


October 11 - Rav Berg's Day of Elevation

Under Pressure and Loving It

Is pressure a positive or negative force? With today’s challenging aspect with Mars and Uranus, we can potentially feel stressed and guilt over not reaching our goals quite soon enough. To answer the question, according to Kabbalah, pressure is actually a good thing! Pressure is our driving force that assists us to get things done. Without pressure, we would most likely never push ourselves beyond our limits and end up staying stuck forever in the same place. Utilizing pressure in a balanced way will motivate us to grow and progress in life. The issue appears, however, when pressure turns into stress, anxiety, and guilt. Our goal today, will be to avoid taking the stressful route. We must remind ourselves that the Light force of the Creator is always with us in everything we do. We need to make the effort and do everything in our power to push through our obstacles, but the results and timing are in the Creator’s hands. At the end of the day, we do not always know what is truly best for ourselves. We do not always know the best timing for things to evolve and manifest. What is important is that we are pushing and focusing on our growth while allowing the Creator the space in our hearts and minds to do His part of the work. Working alongside with the Creator will lead us to our soul’s evolvement and growth. So, let’s drop the stress and welcome the pressure. 


October 12 - Shabbat Ha'Azinu

Life Is a Rollercoaster; Fasten Your Safety Belts

How do we generally handle unpredictability? Do we welcome it or are we scared of the unknown and the unexpected? Do we lack certainty? Today presents this test for us. With Venus opposing Uranus, which is the only time this year it will do so, we can experience a sense of excitement in the romance department, beckoning us to try something new and break our routine. On the other hand, the cosmos could create for us unpredictable or unstable situations. Life can feel a bit like a rollercoaster today, especially in the areas of finances and relationships. Today will be important to take the open-minded approach to life. Open your hands and look up to the universe. Express to it your desire. Ask the Creator to help you accept and navigate successfully any changes or surprises. This is a day to ask the Light for strength, certainty, and the ability to understand that whatever comes your way is only for your best and brought to you out of love from the Creator. Start your day by meditating on this spiritual truth so you can be prepared for life’s unexpected gifts.
