It's about TIME someone wrote this article. Thanks Red! We are a very "happy ending", outcome fixated society. We race against ourselves to "get there". I have had callers in a bad marriage ask me WHEN they will meet someone new. No ending, no healing time, just plow into the new life without reflection. What exactly is the rush? I can say to a caller, "I'm feeling 3 months." They will say, "Oh, I can't wait that long!" Can you force tulips to open before May? Sometimes we race toward the conclusion only to discover we are going the wrong way. And.....once you do get there, guess what? There are more things to wait for! Cherish the time you have. We are not guaranteed tomorrows. It's really about now - not later.

Corrine if you are not careful you will end up a "crazy catlady". "Goofing around" can create good communication because the stress level is zero.....AHA! I'm glad you chose not to wait as long as me to come out of the "psychic closet". Have a good night! Lorna

Thank you, Joseph. Just some of my ponderings on one of my favorite subjects. If callers had a better understanding of what we do, they would have more realistic expectations. So funny you should say that about reading to them. One caller actually did say to me...."I didn't call for you to read to me from your computer screen." EXCUSE ME! My computer was down that day! I live in a rural area and we don't count on cell phones and computers to be reliable. Interesting analogy you had about "turn your chart into a symphony". I think of doing a reading as being like a dance. Shuffle over to the cards....spin the wheel.....shhhh...the music of the spheres. Can you hear it? Waltz around the question, don't step on any toes, be light on your feet and thank your caller for a lovely dance. Pray tell, Joseph. What sign are you? (How 60's of me!) Your photo has such an intensity to it. You seem to be very high energy. Lorna

Fantastic! If you get on that spaceship watch out the window for me and Miss Krystal. No way are we going to Mars. Too hot! I'll take her to Saturn. Miss Krystal and Fran always crack me up, which I love. Too much gloom and doom in the world. I love the Angel image because it shows a black cat in a positive light, which is a nice change. I have article ideas. I'm waiting for the day when time, focus and inspiration all show up in the computer room at once.... or, when pigs fly, which ever comes first. Life is too hectic! You live in Sedona??? Isn't that Vortex City??? :-0

Three times a year is bad enough. A fourth is really annoying. Who can we file a complaint with? If you are the kind of person who can make lemonade from lemons, you will be fine. :-)

Post Script Corrine! Really enjoyed talking to you the other night. You are a very old soul in a very young body. You will do very well in this lifetime. Keep your heart open and your mind hungry. You have the courage and energy to be a success. Time will season you. Also, really like your new bio photo. :-) God's speed, Lorna

Hi Corrine! Now I haven't told a cat story in over two months but it's fits into your article, so for those of you who are groaning.....click the X in the upper corner of your screen. I'll make it quick. For six years I had a cat named Sundance. I loved him dearly. He brought so much love and joy into our home. I won't go into his medical story, but I got a call that he had passed while I was not home. Not being able to say Goodbye I think is the thing that really haunts people. The next couple months were rough. I was in an awful slump I couldn't snap out of. I asked the Universe/God to return me to my old self because I wasn't having any luck getting there myself. The very next morning I went to feed the feral cats in town. When I got out of my car I saw a small form on the ground. When I went closer I saw a kitten, still half in the placenta and turning blue. No concerned mother seemed to be around and I knew the clock was ticking. I ran him home and got him warm and dripped formula into his mouth with an eyedropper. By the next day, I knew he was going to make it. Two things struck me. A sign. He was born on Memorial Day. And two....he looked exactly liked Sundance. In the months that followed it was eerie to see how he replicated my lost cat. It was like Sundance came back to me as this kitten. Being a Gemini, did I get his twin? Was the kitten "A Gift From The Dead." Can't prove it but it healed me. Today the new Sundance and I have an incredible bond. His being bottle fed made us very close. Of course you can't replace someone you love, but you need to keep loving anyway. That's why we are here. Lorna

Hi Faith! I have Libra rising too. I like it because it neutralizes some of my intensity. Same here...some family members want no part of it. Makes you wonder... It's like knowing how to play the piano and refusing to touch the keys! Happy Monday! Lorna

Hi Faith, Is it in your chart that you are psychic? Does it also run in your family? I agree that for most of us on this line we have carried this gift over from a previous life. What some people call aptitude, I call a past life ability. My chart mostly mentions astrology, writing and counseling. I can remember pounding away on a black manual Underwood typewriter. When I picked up my first astrology book in this lifetime, it was like being reunited with an old, dear friend. In grade school when I got my school supplies, I got a notebook with planets on it. I was only ten. Going back to signs....if you pay attention, clues are given to you very early on and NO it is not a coincidence. Fascinating stuff!

Hi Joseph! Thanks for writing this. A great explanation as to why so many of us defend it. Sometimes when I ask a caller for their birth date, I will hear them sigh. Astrology clarifies everything. A psychic may misinterpret the visions they get or be off on a time element. The Planets and their meanings will always stay true. Moon in Aquarius, Mercury retrogrades and Leo in the 5th House have definite meanings. A natal chart can be as individualized as a fingerprint. To use Astrology is not "cheating". A caller is rarely on the phone long enough to have a whole chart done, so in the end, we are picking up psychically from the chart instead of using other methods. Some people who put Astrology down usually have not looked beyond their sun sign or a newspaper horoscope. The "Aspects" are so fine tuned it is uncanny. Never say to an Astrologer...."I think I was born around 9am." The birth time is crucial for accuracy. A good Astrologer can tell what sign someone is by the way they walk, their teeth and their build. Often Librans will have such symmetry in their faces, you can see the Libran Scales. Leo men will sometimes have a flatness at the bridge of their noses that makes them look like the Lions they are. Body language, eyes and voice, all scream what sign a person is. The good news is, to be well versed in Astrology, you do not need to be a psychic or a medium. Read! Read some more and read again. The more books you read the more you will want to know. Doors will open for you that you never knew existed. I got into Astrology over 40 years ago when it was finally explained to me why my mother and I were in constant conflict. What relief I felt when I realized there was nothing wrong with me! Mom and I were like oil and water! Also remember that Astrology is only one spoke in the wheel. You have your karmic mission, your culture, religion, family and financial background all shaping you. We won't even get into past life memories! Ahhhh, I feel better now. Thanks again Joseph! Lorna

Were they Watermelon Jolly Ranchers? We Americans have been supersizing things for so long, we are way off base about what a portion actually is. Not sure why Cancer is such a food sign, most likely connected to the feminine, nuturing nature. Candy does seem to be a Cancer classic. My Dad stuffed his pockets with butterscotch everyday, like he couldn't be caught without it! :~D

Hi again, I have two daughters. The Cancer/Leo owns a Day Spa and the Scorpio/Sag is a Pastry Chef. They are both empathic but too busy to want to work with it. They choose to exploit me instead! Now my Grandson, Sebastian who is a Pisces has a great deal of ability. It remains to be seen where he will take it. Yep! Your candy list matches my daughter's. You have such a perfect smile! Careful...... :~D Coffee is a necessary evil. Gotta have it! I add coffee grounds to my brownie batter. Helps me to chase down the kittens. >^..^< Later!

Hi! Your Mom called you Moon Child? My daughter was born July 22nd with a Virgo rising. I called her Little Lunar. She always had some kind of candy on her. Phillip would take my girls for ice cream and when they came back he would have chocolate all over his shoulders. It always made me laugh. I should have sent him out with a tarp! What is your favorite addiction? The Cancer memory stores more than any computer, I know that! :~) Lorna

Hello Miss Krystal, I simply can't imagine living with the reality of earthquakes. Aren't you always in a state of subconscious anxiety, wondering if the sidewalks are going to buckle beneath you? That sounds frightening to people in the Midwest. We get some intense storms and a foot of snow, but that's about it. Is it safe to assume you believe animals have souls? I believe they do and yet I run into so many people that don't feel that they have one. Now that I know you have a Guardian Cat, I don't feel so silly having a Guardian Collie. I agree with you that my father found a love for cats after he passed. Seeing him with those three orange tigers in his Army uniform has inspired me to find an artist who would do a painting. I would find so much comfort in that image. Do you think your Grandfather appeared in the window because you were too preoccupied to pick up on him. So you got to see him because you really needed to know you were protected. Yes, it is an amazing feeling. People expect to be scared, but when it actually happens it's not scary at all. It's peaceful.

Dear Crazy, You are not a mess, you're just a soft shell crab. That's OK! The world can never have too many caring, sensitive softies. So stop baying at the Moon. One of my daughter's and some of my best friends are Cancers. I would love to talk to you! Lorna
