2017: A Quick Cosmic Preview

Here is an astrological glimpse of the year ahead based on a planetary chart calculated at precisely one minute past midnight on January 1st, 2017 in Cheneville, Quebec.

In short, 2017 promises to be challenging both personally and globally—but the challenges we will face, if properly managed, can present us with great opportunities for growth and prosperity.

chart-of-2017The most significant aspect of the New Year chart is that planets are aligned in a Kala Sarpa yoga, which means they are clustered together on one side of the chart between the shadow planets of Rahu and Ketu. (Although Mars is located slightly outside of the planetary cluster in the New Year chart, it is separated by only five degrees, so all in all the Kala Sarpa yoga effect is maintained.)

The Kala Sarpa yoga is often considered a negative alignment—but it doesn’t have to be. When we are aware of the challenges this planetary combination can produce, we can take steps to avoid its undesirable influences and turn its collective energy to our advantage.

The difficulties associated with Kala Sarpa stem from its lopsided nature. There are twelve houses in a chart. Having all the planets on one side of the chart focuses a kind of hyper-cosmic energy onto the occupied houses that, while directing great energy and momentum to those areas, which can result in undreamed-of success, leaves the other houses empty and neglected. This dichotomy can result in a tunnel vision that can upset our equilibrium, potentially isolating us from others and leaving us feeling alone and alienated.

In a balanced chart, the planets are distributed evenly above and below the horizon, indicating a balance in all areas of our lives. But in this unbalanced, Kala Sarpa New Year chart, nearly all the planets (with the exception for Rahu in the 12th house) are below the horizon, occupying houses one through six. These houses reflect deeply personal aspects of our existence—our sense of self and self-dignity, our finances, our interpersonal relationships with our siblings and our community, how we feel for our home life, our homeland and our mother, our romantic life, our individual health, the manner in which we respond to opposition and competition and our ability to deal with the consequences of our past actions. Having all the planets placed in these houses denotes a strong tendency to be preoccupied with our personal problems, doubts, worries and insecurities. This can push us into ourselves and pull us away from other people—even the people we care for the most. And because the first six houses represent areas of our lives established during our formative years, they are more difficult for us to control or change than the six other houses, which are above the horizon and more readily conquered using freewill and discernment.

Therefore, it is imperative for us to be calm and reflective in our personal life over the next 12 months, to resist the urge to isolate and to be proactive instead of reactive in our dealings with others, particularly in the way we treat ourselves and those we love. Don’t beat yourself up for missteps made during 2016—it was a difficult year for everyone and will have lingering effects we can properly address in the coming weeks and months. Use the struggles of the past year as a lesson in how to best overcome the new hurdles in the year ahead.

A Kala Sarpa yoga can also cause us to cast a fretful eye on the national and international scene, pushing us to internalize the growing unrest and uncertainty in world affairs—this can intensify our emotional and psychological stress and threaten our overall health and peace of mind. It is therefore imperative to keep our equilibrium by maintaining a philosophical long-view when it comes to current events. For example, don’t allow an upswing in global political anger and fear-mongering to arouse internal feelings of anger, bias or bitterness. Try to raise the level of discussion through positive debate and dialogue—this will raise your own consciousness as well as the consciousness of those around you, which ultimately create a better world.

The best news offered to us in the New Year chart is that while planets, although not situated in a sign in which they are at home, are directly connected by aspect to their home signs. So while we may face some initial struggle in knowing the right course of action to follow, or expressing our feelings, we still have access to an intuitive sense of what to do to ensure success at every level. We can tune into this intuition most effectively by using our discernment, wisdom and the deep-rooted insight derived through regular meditation.

If we follow this simple remedy, 2017 is sure to be a happy, harmonious and prosperous year for ourselves, our loved ones and all of humankind.

Nurturing our Purpose: Mary’s story

Mary was a nervous wreck when she first came to see me. Despite having a degree in Television Production, she suffered from very low self-esteem and yearned for fulfillment. She was filled with restless energy, but had nowhere to direct it. Mary was desperate for something to make her feel good about herself, bring her happiness and give her life meaning.

During our first consultation she was convinced that romantically attaching herself to someone else would fill the void in her life. “Guylaine, I need a man—can you help me find a relationship?”

I looked at her handprint and shook my head. “Jumping into a relationship right now is not going to give you what you need to find lasting happiness,” I told her.mary-bef

Mary had two very prominent lines in her palm—a long, ram-rod straight heart line as well as a long, beautifully developed destiny line. Her destiny line told me she would do very well in a career or by championing a cause where she could direct the energy of her passionate heart line.

“Mary, you need a purpose that is your own, a purpose through which you can take pride in your personal achievements. You are blessed with a powerful destiny line, pursuing a career will give you the purpose, which will help develop characteristics necessary to succeed in all areas of your life. Find work that satisfies you and then pour all your passion into it—that will give you a sense of accomplishment and meaning, build your self-confidence and make you self-reliant. When you are happy in yourself, you can be happy with someone else.”

Mary took that advice; the very next week she landed a mid-level job at a major television studio. From her first day, she dedicated all her energy to becoming the very best in her field. Her steely determination and the laser-sharp focus arising from her destiny line pushed her to the top in record time. She earned an executive position with a big salary, an expense account, a company car and a glamourous lifestyle that took her all over the world. She had found her purpose and was happy in her work and with her life.

However, when I called Mary a year later to check on her progress, I discovered that her new-found happiness was in jeopardy. One day as she was walking home from work someone caught her attention by whistling at her. She was extremely flattered and realized the man worked at her studio. David quickly became the center of her entire life. She began to neglect her work duties and became increasingly dependent on David—suffocating him with relentless demands for his attention and time. Mary’s successful, confident and dynamic personality, which initially drew David to her, disappeared in her growing obsession with him. Within that year her relationship was over, she’d been fired from her job, and was so despondent that she was contemplating suicide.

It was at this low point that she returned to see me for a follow up consultation, hoping I could help her figure out whamary-aftert went so wrong with her seemingly perfect life.

As you can see in her “after” handprint, Mary’s line of Destiny has vanished completely—losing sight of her purpose had, at least temporarily, cost her everything—her job, her relationship and her sense of self. Over a series of coaching sessions, she came to realize that losing one’s purpose and depending on others for happiness leads only to thwarted desire, anger and despair. If we are lucky enough to have a purpose—be it a career, a cause or a belief—we must nurture it or we will lose it. In Mary’s case, losing her purpose almost cost her her life.

Mary eventually rebuilt her career by producing documentaries that had strong social messages. Her new work firmly connected her to her passion and to others, which made her heart line more flexible. When she did begin a new romantic partnership, she was prepared and capable of balancing both a loving relationship with nurturing her drive to succeed professionally. Her heart line began to turn upward and her destiny line began growing again.

My personal palmistry coaching program focuses on the issues blocking you from happiness and fulfillment: from eliminating self-defeating attitudes to developing confidence, charisma attracting love or building a successful career. Whether your goals are short-term or long-range, I’d be delighted to help you achieve them. Together we can change your life as we change the lines in your hand.

A Karmic Conjunction: Mars and Ketu Beginning December 26

The current conjunction of Mars and Ketu offers us a unique opportunity to simultaneously look back over our lives while looking toward the future—and hopefully, make some positive, permanent and life-changing resolutions on New Year’s Eve.

Mars, the warrior planet of fiery drive and passion is now facing off with Ketu, the interiorized shadow planet denoting the effects of our past karma embodied in the principal “what we sow, so shall we reap.”

Mars moves us forward by pushing us to action and getting things done; Ketu forces us to reflect on our Karma, to think about how our past has resulted in who we are today, and how our actions in life can lift us up, cast us down and lift us up again.

When Ketu is in conjunction, it takes on the other planet’s natural energy and characteristics. Being conjunct with a benefic planet can bring out Ketu’s positive, insightful and soul-searching aspects, which can help us detach from worldly concerns, raise our spiritual awareness and ultimately put us on the path toward enlightenment. However, being conjunct with a malefic planet like Mars can have an unpredictable and chaotic effect.

That chaos may result in the release of pent up energy that we have not found a positive or productive outlet for, which can lead to mishaps, misunderstandings, frustration and sudden, unanticipated outbursts of anger.

Needless to say, Mars conjunct with Ketu can present many hurdles and challenges for us, creating disruptions at home, at work and in our own peace of mind. However, it is also a conjunction that can provide us with deep insight into ourselves and how we choose to live. This is because Ketu allows us to internalize Mars’ energy, which we can use to root out unproductive or self-defeating attitudes and engrained behaviour patterns, making this an excellent opportunity to burn off accumulated negative Karma. But accomplishing this requires effort—we have to consciously choose to utilize the power of Mars’ fighting spirit to champion noble causes and to establish peace and harmony in our own lives while fostering it in others. Otherwise the comingled energy produced by these two formidable planets in conjunction will put us at risk of becoming excessively opinionated, rude, overly aggressive or even physically confrontational—qualities that won’t win us many friends at a New Year’s party.

So, it is advisable to keep our cool and be both patient and introspective while these planets are aligned—in this way we can successfully direct Ketu’s intensity and Mars’ warrior energy toward combating our personal demons—a battle that will make us better people and the world a better place for having us in it. What better way to ring-in the New Year?

Mars and Ketu will be in each other’s field of influence until mid-January, when Mars leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces.

Journey Toward a Meaningful Life: Robert’s Story

Despite having a B.A. in comparative literature, Robert had no idea what to do with his education or his life. At 26, he was drifting unhappily through a series of odd jobs, including washing dishes at a restaurant a few blocks away from the Birla Center. One afternoon he wandered into my office, said he was miserable and asked for a consultation. Even a quick look at his hand told me that the root of his unhappiness was his utter lack of a destiny line—in other words, Robert had no purpose in life.

Lacking a purpose in life is more than an existential crisis—it is a potentially dangerous condition that can rob us of our health and happiness. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM)—used by caregivers around the world to diagnose mental illnesses—links a “lack of purpose” with depression, borderline personality disorder, drug addiction and even suicide. You know you lack purpose if you experience a nagging sensation telling you: There must be more to life than this! Well, there is more—it is purpose.

But finding your purpose takes work; it doesn’t simply mean having a job, a profession or a role to play in our family or society. If our careers or duties are not driven by a deep-seated purpose, they are merely occupations and we crawl out of bed in the morning instead of embracing each day as a blessing and a new opportunity to shine in the world.

Raising our kids, doing our best at work or labouring to put food on the table provides us with an external purpose, but if that purpose does not come from within, it is unanchored, fragile and can be shattered by changing circumstance. The death of a spouse or child, the loss of a job, the realization we are in the wrong career or a bad marriage, or the prospect of a forced retirement can drain us of the meaning we thought our lives had—leaving us with only hopelessness and despair.

Our real purpose comes from deep within; it can be hard to find and even harder to sustain over a lifetime. But if we succeed—despite any hardship or heartaches we encounter—we will create a happy and healthy existence driven by a strong sense of meaning and steering us toward personal fulfillment and enlightenment. Finding and developing our purpose will enable us to lead better lives and help us make this world a better place for everyone.

destiny-lineIn palmistry, the Saturn line—also known as the line of destiny—is a good indicator of our depth of purpose.

In Robert’s case, the presence of a Mercury line shows an ability to apply himself, enabling him to earn a B.A.—but the complete absence of a Saturn line indicated a lack of no-destiny-robertdeep-seated purpose. So he had an education, but no calling . . . and he wasn’t searching for one. He passed his time earning rent money, watching television, and becoming more and more depressed. With no hobbies, passions, causes or supportive friends to encourage or challenge him to set his sights higher and strive for excellence, Robert fell into a mechanical routine of daily survival, leaving him restless, bored and completely unfulfilled.

I encouraged him to grow his Saturn line by becoming more introspective; I urged him to read books, take up yoga or meditation, become a community activist—anything to expand his horizons and engage his heart and mind, so long as it stirred his passion and required a deep commitment. I assured him that igniting his passion would lead him to his purpose, and that a purpose-driven life is one that promises us happiness, contentment and rich spiritual rewards that will generate inner joy and inspire those around us.

Robert dropped by a few months later to let me know that, although he was still washing dishes to pay the rent, he had started writing film reviews for a community newspaper and had written the first chapter of a novel. He wasn’t sure if writing was his true purpose, but it was a good place to start looking for it.

A Cosmic Call for Change

Jupiter Opposite Uranus: Beginning December 19th

When the late, great David Bowie sang ch-ch-ch-changes, he may very well have been celebrating the transit of Jupiter opposite Uranus. The hallmark of this powerful transit, which begins today, is an irresistible urge to make major life changes. This transit lasts until January 22nd when Jupiter moves for a short time into Libra and then returns February 21 when Jupiter goes back into Virgo (retrograde) until March 14th when Uranus moves into Aries.

Jupiter opposite Uranus is famous for producing a driving force that feeds the desire to break free of anything that is holding us back or limiting our choices, be it an unhealthy relationship, a go-nowhere job, negative habits or a lack of education.

Change is never easy, so this transit can prove to be personally disruptive and emotionally challenging, but such is the cost of freedom—the rewards of a new life and new opportunities will easily outweigh any short-term discomfort. Make the most of the Jupiter opposite Uranus energy over the coming months by recreating your reality and expanding your horizons—embark on a project or self-development program you’ve been postponing, enroll in school, or take up yoga or meditation. Just make sure that if you do answer the Cosmic call for change, the change you make is directed toward improving your life and bringing you happiness.

A Troubled Marriage

Steve and Lyn: Moving from Anger to Laughter

Steve was a big, burly owner of a fleet of moving vans who had no patience for palmistry. When we started our first session he wanted to be any place other than in my office watching me analyze his handprints.

“I’m only here because my wife made me come. There is nothing wrong with me—she might buy into this palmistry silliness, but I don’t,” he said, folding his tattooed-arms across his chest defensively.

“I understand,” I said, smiling. “Palmistry isn’t everybody’s cup of tea.” I also understood that his wife, Lyn, a long time client of mine, was fed up living with Steve’s demanding nature, short-temper, and overall miserable outlook on life. He was no longer the thoughtful, happy man she’d married 20 years earlier. She’d had enough and had given him an ultimatum—go see Guylaine or pack your bags. Despite his surliness, the fact that he was sitting across from me told me he loved Lyn and was desperate to save his marriage.

“Steve, you say you are only here because your wife insisted—so let’s talk about your relationship with her.” At first he was reluctant to discuss his personal life, but as he described how he and Lyn met and fell in love his macho exterior began to melt. Steve slowly let down his guard and his eyes filled with tears as he shared his fears about losing his wife.

“I don’t know what’s wrong with me,” he blurted out. “I get so impatient and annoyed whenever she asks me to do something with her. I know she’s just trying to bring us closer together . . . but I’m afraid that if I don’t do what she wants she’ll leave me. That fear makes me even angrier and I end up pushing her further away. I know I’m acting poorly by not doing what she wants to, but I can’t seem to help myself.”

steve-rb-beforeSteve’s handprints confirmed what he was telling me. His heart line was particularly revealing—it was long and as straight as a ruler. While the line’s length suggested he was idealistic and capable of loving deeply, its rigidity rendered him incapable of compromising or accepting others for who they truly were. He became agitated when people didn’t see things his way, which made him intense and unyielding—a bad combination if he hoped to maintain a long-term, harmonious relationship. He simply couldn’t respond to the needs and feelings of his partner. His unhappy situation was made all the worse by his closed Sun finger, which drained him of his natural magnetism and prevented him from experiencing joy in life and love.

Fortunately, Steve’s hand also possessed several wisdom marks on his Jupiter mount that, although they were faint, told me he was capable of change and personal growth. By the end of that first session he said he was willing to do whatever it took to change his attitude and develop a rounder, more flexible heart line. I gave him a journal and asked him to keep a record of every experience that triggered an angry outburst.

Within the first few weeks Steve was shocked to observe that he became upset during most personal interactions. “It’s not just with Lyn—it’s with everyone—I yell at my employees if they are 30 seconds late coming back from lunch, at the guy in front of me who’s driving too slow, at the waiter when he’s not quick enough with my order, at Lyn if she wants to watch a comedy show instead of the hockey game . . . everything and everyone seems to aggravate me! I’ve almost filled this journal and there is only one day that I felt happy! Why am I always so angry?

I answered by quoting the great Eastern sage, Sri Yukteswar, who said that wrath springs only from thwarted desires—that if we choose to love, our love must be unconditional. Otherwise our relationships are based on satisfying our own desires and we will inevitably be disappointed when our needs aren’t fulfilled. That clicked with Steve; he agreed to start another journal—this time writing down a note of forgiveness to everyone with whom he lost his temper. The next time we met he was angry with himself.steve-rb-after

“Look at all these forgiveness notes. I can’t stand myself, who would want to live with someone so miserable and mad at the world?” This insight was a major breakthrough for Steve, whose next step was forgiving himself for putting so many demands and expectations on others.

A year later Steve and I met for our final coaching session. This time Lyn joined us and my office was filled with laughter as we took another set of Steve’s hand prints. His heart line had changed as much as his attitude—it was much rounder and far more flexible. And now the marks of wisdom on his Jupiter mount were more prominent and his Sun finger had opened up, inviting joy to return to his life.

Lyn confided that Steve had undergone a dynamic transformation—his anger had evaporated and he was more patient, caring and attentive to her needs. They had drawn closer as a couple and, most importantly, they were both happy.

“Thank you for giving me back the man I married,” Lyn whispered as they left.

We will look at how to eliminate self-defeating attitudes, develop confidence and charisma, attract love, strengthen your relationships or build a successful career.

A Righteous Transit: Mars in Aquarius

If there is a worthy cause you want to champion or an injustice you want corrected, now would be a good time to make your voice heard.

On December 9th, Mars moved into Aquarius, where it will remain until mid-January. Mars is a hotly enthusiastic, passionately goal-oriented planet and Aquarius is the sign renowned for social causes—which makes this an ideal transit to strive for positive change in the world, at work or in your neighbourhood.

The inclination to fight the good fight is being bolstered by the current exchange of positive energy between two benefic planets—Mercury, which is in Sagittarius, and Jupiter, which is transiting in Virgo. On top of that, Saturn (which rules Aquarius) is presently in Mars-ruled Scorpio, so its steely Saturnine determination and self-discipline are readily available to any noble battle launched while Mars is passing through Aquarius.

The only cautionary note at this juncture is to tread softly. Aquarius is an air sign, and air can easily feed the fiery temperament of Mars—their combined energy is like nitroglycerin—extremely powerful but highly volatile. So, if you do set out to make a difference or right wrongs during the next month, be careful not to make matters worse by enflaming tempers. Be calm instead of combative when dealing with others, and peaceful instead of provocative when your opinions are challenged. Remember, you don’t have to shout to make your voice heard.

Don’t Let the Love of Your Life Sail Away

Charles was a graduate student of philosophy at a major university who wanted the security of being a fully tenured professor. Melissa was a talented musician and recent immigrant to Canada who earned a living giving private music lessons. They’d both grown up near the water—Charles on the banks of the St. Lawrence River; Melissa on the coast of Jamaica—and shared a deep passion for sailing. They met at a boating regatta near Montreal, where they rented a small skiff and fell in love while skimming across the waves on a beautiful summer afternoon.

Charles recited love poems to Melissa from ancient Eastern texts and Melissa played classical guitar for Charles until he drifted off to sleep. He had never been happier in his life, and she felt the same way. They talked of the future, planning to raise a family and sailing around the world together when they retired.

For two years they were inseparable, except those times, Melissa noted uncomfortably, when it came to meeting Charles’ parents or the faculty members at his university. She finally asked Charles why he had not introduced her to his mom and dad or his colleagues. “Charlie—is it because my skin is darker than yours?” Charles was flustered. “Melissa, you know I don’t have a prejudiced bone in my body—but my mother . . . she is old fashioned, she wouldn’t approve. And the president of the university faculty is very conservative—he believes academics should only marry other academics. So please, be patient—one day I will have tenure and can do what I like. And who knows, sooner or later my mother might come around. Let’s just wait and see what happens. Let’s be patient.”

‘Be patient? It’s been more than two years! We don’t need other peoples’ approval to be happy together. Why don’t we just leave and start our life somewhere else. We are young and in love, we can earn money . . . what’s stopping us? Let’s rent a boat and sail away somewhere—anywhere in the world!”

“I would do that in a heartbeat—if we won a lottery. We can’t exist on love alone, Melissa.”

“But money can’t buy you love Charlie! You said you wanted to get married, to have kids and spend our lives together! You better make up your mind and decide if that’s the life you want,” Melissa said.

“Okay, Okay . . . I’ll think about,” Charles answered.

That Christmas Charles failed to invite Melissa to the faculty party or his family get-together. A few months later, on the third anniversary of their first meeting, Melissa was about to give Charles a lottery ticket as a present. “Move to the West Coast with me,” she said. “I can teach music to support us, you can finish your studies at a new university and we can go sailing whenever we like. We’ll live our dream; if we put each other first, the money will follow.”

“I’ll have to think about it,” he said. Melissa kissed him goodbye as she put the lottery ticket back in her pocket and left. Charles never saw her again.

I met Charles several years later while he was completing his thesis and researching some of the rare Vedic texts in Birla Center’s private library. He asked to have his handprints taken and wanted to know which feature or character trait was most prominent in his palm.

cross“The lines and signs of the hand form a complex and integral web—they should be read as a whole,” I said. “But what stands out most in your palm is the cross on your Sun line. The Sun line is an expression of personal joy, success and contentment—if it’s healthy and solid, it means you’re following your heart selflessly and without the need of praise or approval. However, this cross is cutting your Sun line in half. The cross has likely been caused by some unconscious or external force that’s interfering with your ability to decide or act upon what your heart is intuitively telling you is the right thing to do. Have you had difficulty finding or keeping the things that give you joy? Do you have trouble committing to your passion or happiness?”

That’s when Charles told me his sad love story and how his relationship with Melissa ended. “But the real irony is this—a mutual friend recently told me that the lottery ticket Melissa tried to give me was actually a winning number. She became a millionaire, then she met and married another man; they bought a boat and are sailing around the world. I let the love of my life sail away from me because I couldn’t make up my mind—I let other people decide the kind of life I would lead. I guess that’s my destiny.”

“What I see in your hand is not etched in stone, Charles. What happens to us is not predestined. We can change our lines, and our lives, if we truly desire and commit to change. We can fix your Sun line, Charles—the question is, do you want to fix it, do you want to change your life?”

“I’ll have to think it over,” Charles said as he left my office. When I last heard of Charles, he had become a tenured professor and was living in his mother’s house. He never married.

Palmistry is an amazing tool that can not only reveal the personal challenges blocking us from a full and truly happy life, but can also help us eliminate those blockages and embrace the happiness and joy we deserve. All we need to do is find the courage and commitment to change.
