Learn what the I Ching, Nordic and Greek mythology, Physics, Nature, Kabbalah, Runes, Astrology and all the Voyager Tarot number Eight Cards have to say about You Living In Balance and how to do Balance Readings.

– From the Voyager BibleVoyager Tarot Way of the Great Oracle by James Wanless…

"Balance is the law of action and reaction – for every action, there is an equal reaction. And as the ancient Chinese oracle, the I Ching says about balance – Hexagram #63 Chi Chi/After Completion: 'When perfect equilibrium has been reached, any movement may cause order to revert to disorder.'

The number for Balance is 8, its equal spheres suggesting balance. Eight (8) turned sideways is the symbol of infinity. Things are infinite only because they are constantly changing.  Eight represents balance amidst ever-present change. As every change creates a new balance/imbalance, Balance is a dance, a continuum of Libra-like mental adjustments to keep your equilibrium.

Balance is dancing in harmony with life (Eight of Wands – Harmony) moving to changes of our inner and outer seasons (Eight of worlds – change), and rotating between the right and left hemispheres of the mind (Eight of Crystals – Synthesis).  The dance of balance is to move lightly with the wind like the flute, to blend in with the leaves like the chameleon, and to change perspectives like the crystal.  The balance of the dancer is a state of mind, an awareness of the now and a mental flexibility to act in appropriate response.  Balance is trading the edge, able to go this way or that. Stagnation – Eight of Cups – meaning frozen, dried up, still, hard, is the death of the dance of life.  There is no life without revolution and rhythm.  Keep the mind moving, the body fluid, and the spirit soaring.

Balance is called Justice in traditional tarot. Balance is maintained by the fairness or justice you extend to each aspect of yourself – Be fair to your mind (bird), heart (cup), body (sphere) and spirit (dancer).

Like Themis, the Greek goddess of Justice, you are your own best judge. We hold the scales of balance in our own hand. Balance is composed of two Latin words: bi meaning dual, and land meaning scale. The balance between opposites suggest its Rune symbol, Tiwaz. Tiwaz is the Norse god of law and justice, Tyr, who ruled in favor of the right and honorable action.  So, follow the high road and do the right thing.

The Kabbalah letter-word for Balance is Lamed, meaning to teach.  Teach yourself through your continuously changing incoming stimuli and learn through adjusting. Balance is your teacher."


December Forecast

December is the last month of the calendar year, and now the first month of Winter is upon us. The Sun has moved into Sagittarius, which heightens the feeling of abundance and possibility that the holidays bring. It is also a time to reflect on the past year and assess our progress. Sorry to interrupt your festivities, but it’s important to get real about what you’re actually celebrating.


Early in the month, Uranus and Jupiter are met in quick succession by Venus, Mercury and the Sun in the first half of December, bringing a spirit of inspired innovation and access to an inner reservoir of faith and optimism. Now is the time to stand up for causes close to your heart and believe in the magic of the season.

There is a tendency, however, to spread yourself too thin during December 6-10th. If you’re feeling on edge because of too much shopping, baking and merriment, remind yourself not to take things too personally. The magnifying vibes of a stellium in Sagittarius can make us all get up on our high horse a bit too much. The intimate clustering of Mercury, the planet of communication and Ceres, the asteroid of health, is amplified when they join with the Sun, making conversations tense and debates over health topics fiery, so it’s best to see to your own health and keep quiet about your opinions of other’s well-being. That means no talking about your fruitcake allergy unless you want to stir up trouble. Just accept the gift politely and use it for a festive doorstop.


Around December 10th, the planet of love will be caught between a very cold rock in an unexpected place.  Or in other words, Venus hangs out with transformative Pluto and quirky Uranus, making relationships vulnerable, and communication tricky. Uranus and Pluto are set to square off on December 15th, so try to stay out of the line of fire. It will be difficult, as your inner warrior is boosted by the revolutionary energy of this square, and you’re ready to be the voice of all those Tiny Tims out there. Tread lightly and try to cooperate rather than dictate and your efforts will be rewarded.


It can be difficult to ignore the rush of commercialism, holiday gatherings and the deep need to deck your halls, but if you forget to fill up your soul, the season will seem empty. This is a time of year when deep transformation is possible, so if you really want to embrace the spirit of the season in a meaningful way, it is the perfect time to volunteer, help out a neighbor or support your favorite cause.


Enjoy things while you can because on December 22nd, the Sun enters Capricorn and the clock is ticking. This sign’s stern influence is like being awakened from a magical dream, and you’re stunned that you have to get down to business, like cooking and cleaning. Make your lists, check them twice and get ready for a wonderful, blessed holiday season.



November Astrology Forecast



This month promises to be a little complicated and serious, but will lead into the holidays with reason to celebrate. After the Mercury Retrograde of last month, November 2014 may seem less challenging despite the somber tone.

On November 6th, the Full Moon will peak in the sign of Taurus, offering plenty of sensual delights along the way. We’re talking fireplace, chocolate, bearskin rug type of thing. Now is the time to indulge in pleasure (without the guilt) and really enjoy the moment with that special someone.

Speedy Mercury will join lovely Venus in the sign of Scorpio on November 8th, triggering a narrow, focused period of seriousness in relationships. A touch of pre-holiday gloom may be lurking just below the surface, mixing with a passionate intensity that can whip up some extra drama if you’re not careful. This energy can turn a hopeless romantic into a scorned stalker, so watch the superficial flirting on November 12th when a clash between Venus and Saturn sets off sparks!

Venus moves on to visit optimistic Sagittarius on November 16th influencing possessive partners to drop the jealous power games. The mood begins to shift from somber to celebratory, and desperate fears can quickly turn into passionate exchanges.

The big day for planetary action this month is November 22nd, when the Sun moves into boisterous Sagittarius, signaling the beginning of the holiday season. A New Moon in Sagittarius also joins the Sun on this day and enhances the possibility for adventure and need for higher education. Think “big picture” and go for it!

Thanksgiving Day, on November 27th, welcomes Mercury into Sagittarius giving extra positivity and conviviality to the family dinner table. Celebrate fully with your loved ones, but watch for a possible clash of ideals over pumpkin pie. Say less, eat more.

All the while, Mars and Pluto have been hanging out in Capricorn, offering a determined, pragmatic energy that can have seriously radical outcomes for anything happening in November 2014. Be ready for unexpected troubles, but know that a higher good is being achieved through a little upheaval. While patience and flexibility are necessary throughout the month, generous Jupiter will partner with quirky Uranus providing unexpected support on many levels, giving us all many reasons to be thankful!



September Astrological Forecast

Although saying good-bye to summer is bittersweet, there are definitely things to look forward to - changing leaves, freshly baked apple crisp, a cozy fire. This September will also offer a calmer pace to life, as the effects of the Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year wear off and Mars and Saturn separate after engaging a “Clash of the Titans” type wrestling match in August. This energy is still being felt by some of us - those who are Scorpio, Taurus, and Aquarius should keep their eyes and ears on for a couple more weeks.


However, most of us are going to just love life for a while. After several months of tension, scrambled efforts and even a bit of delusion, you can sit back now and trust that the effort you have put in over the last several months will start to pay off. Cheers to that!Although saying good-bye to summer is bittersweet, there are definitely things to look forward to - changing leaves, freshly baked apple crisp, a cozy fire.

The influence of Jupiter and Uranus will be felt by almost everyone this month in a very unexpected, yet grand way.  Watch for something spontaneous and exciting to come along, then go for it. You’ll know its right in an undeniable way, so have faith that it is right for you. Take a deep breath and leap into it with confidence.

This wild optimism will also get a boost when Mars, the planet of action, hooks up with the expansive nature of Jupiter and the innovative aspects of Uranus for a powerful threesome in the middle of September. Another Grand Trine - but this one is a little more productive - and seductive. Not in a romantic way, but in an offer-you-can’t-refuse sort of way.

This is awesome news for fiery Aries, Leo and Sagittarius folks, as Mars and Jupiter have some serious clout to put in your corner this month. You will be offered unexpected opportunities and the odds will be stacked in your favor. Kinda like mobsters who rig the whole event. What you do with that chance is up to you, of course. If you are a Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, you will also be expected to step it up in September - so get ready.

The Autumnal Equinox (in the Northern Hemisphere at least) will be exact at 8:29 pm MDT on September 22nd, 2014. This is the perfect opportunity to go outside at sunset and mark your East/West points in your yard, as the sun sets due West at that time. It doesn’t take a genius to predict that winter is coming, especially since the mountains in our area have already been dusted with snow. However, the equinox helps us re-establish balance, so pay attention to the equal days and nights and adjust your “busy” and “rest” times accordingly. That means more sleep - yay!

No matter what your sign though, everyone will definitely feel that a fresh start has been offered in an area of life that has been stuck lately. Take advantage of this energy, but beware of becoming obsessed to the point of excess. Due to a late month stand-off between stubborn Mars and sensitive Neptune, things may get emotional, dramatic, even hysterical regarding your ‘new’ way of doing things. If you’re taking it to the fanatic extreme - you have gone too far. Keep it real, people.

All in all, its going to be a wonderful month, and may all your creations be blessed!
