Nostradamus (b. December 14): “Understanding cannot be acquired by the occult, only by aid of the zodiac…”

“Understanding created by the intellect cannot be acquired by means of the occult, only by the aid of the zodiac, bringing forth that small flame by whose light part of the future may be discerned.”

Kala Sarpa: everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask

30 Nov

“If the Sun and Moon would doubt,” poet William Blake once wrote, “they would immediately go out.”

As for me, there were times over the past 18 months when my own vision blurred, and I doubted whether I could write a book on Kala Sarpa that would do justice to its myth. But as it is with all writing of substance, it became a sadhana, and there was no choice but to finish the work. I hope students and practicing astrologers alike can now use it to shed light on what has always been a very dark subject.

Amazon book review: Parivartana Yoga

6 Sep

Here’s a recent 5-star review I received from an Amazon reader for my book PARIVARTANA YOGA:

“His logical and organized approach makes this book an easy reference guide…

“Alan Annand is a gifted astrological writer and his book, Parivartana Yoga, fills a void in the literature where material on clear interpretations of yogas and all their variations is often lacking in Vedic astrology. His approach is logical and organized and makes using his book an easy reference guide. He generously illustrates his book with key examples from famous people, bringing the principles to life regarding exchanges of planets via signs and houses. I often use this book as a reference guide when this phenomenon comes up in my chart analysis [43% of all clients]. A must for your shelf!”

Learn to love Saturn…

…and you can face anything in life.

Mercury Retrograde Sex

21 Apr

20 ways to show the love during Mercury Rx… 

As an astrologer, I get a lot of calls this time of year from clients asking whether it’s appropriate to have sex while Mercury is retrograde. For these three weeks, they worry their guy won’t be able to get his mojo working, or if he does, the condom will catch on fire, or even if it doesn’t, she won’t get no satisfaction… People wonder, maybe it’s not worth trying at all?

Nonsense. Don’t let that schizophrenic little planet dictate your sex life. Learn to work with it. During retrograde periods, simply honor Mercury by invoking the classic themes associated with the trickster planet. Follow these practical guidelines and you’re guaranteed to get off to a good start:

MERx

Have phone sex. Gemini loves to talk, and Virgo hates a mess anyway. Call up a friend and tell them how you like it.

phones sex

Start a sex diary. Even if you’re not getting it regularly now, you’ll probably enjoy reliving a few memories from your college days.

diary

Read erotica, alone or to each other – Anais Nin, The Joy of Sex, Henry Miller, the Kama Sutra. Not at your book club, or you’ll be getting home late.

erotica

Sext someone. Show your love with proper spelling and grammar. Nothing betrays lack of class like a note at the end saying, Did u cum 2?

Use your hands. Mercury is notoriously ambidextrous, so if you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with. Even if it’s only you.

Restrict the senses. Wear a blindfold and earplugs to rediscover the other senses – smell, taste, touch and shameless gratification.

blindfold

Dive headfirst into a wet dream. Love is an illusion anyway, so go deep, go surreal or go home alone.

Take a Sex Ed course, demand extra homework and ask for private tutoring. You just might become the next teacher’s pet.

Do it with mirrors. Mercury is all about duplication and self-reflection. Even if you don’t live in California, you two can make a foursome.

mirror

Do it in cars, boats, trains, planes, bunk beds, elevators, libraries, bookstores or stationery supply rooms. Be careful on the photocopier.

car sex

Record yourself in bed. If you don’t look that great on video, try a podcast. On audio everyone will think you’re just a cat in heat anyway.

video

Let other people watch. Except your kids, unless you can afford several years of therapy for their wounded psyches.

voyeur

You don’t have to wait for the weekend. Wednesday is hump day.

Renew your marriage vows in Vegas, just for the second honeymoon sex.

If you live in the Appalachians, share your love with a sibling, cousin or uncle.

appalachia

Do it with twins. Geminis come in pairs, so why shouldn’t you?

twins

Dance the night away. It might take two to tango, but if you still wanna, you can always lambada — down and dirty on the dancefloor.

lambada

Mercury loves games of logic and skill, so try your hand at strip poker — Texas Shuck ‘em, deuces wild.

Confess your cardinal sins to someone who has none.

 If you want to get ahead, give a little.
