The Professor

The Professor, founder of Rancho La Puerta spa in Mexico

There are sacred places on this earth, which are like heaven on earth.  The Rancho La Puerta spa in Tecate, Mexico is one of them.  At the base of the sacred Mt. Kuchumaa, the visionary Professor Edmond Szekely started this health and fitness resort in the 1940’s.  I have been extremely lucky to be a presenter there since 2000. I just returned from the Ranch, where I taught my astrology workshop.  Many of the guests knew nothing about astrology, but they took part in my classes to learn something new.  Many, including a medical doctor, and a science teacher, discovered there is perhaps more to astrology than they first thought.  I think the founder would be happy with what I am teaching his guests.   Professor Szekely wrote a book called COSMOTHERAPY, The Medicine of the Future.  In it he writes a lot about our connection with the solar system.  Did you know that crops are influenced by the moon light?  Geotropism is the study of the effect of gravity on plants.  During a full moon, the planets that grow directly up, like corn and beans, will pull towards towards the bright moonlight.

Mars the planet of war, has been in fiery Aries.  Tomorrow, Mars leaves Aries and enters the ultra feminine sign of Taurus. Things should start to feel a lot softer out there in the world, thank goodness.   It is a much calmer energy for sure.  Taurus people are conservative by nature.  They are practical and purposeful.  Of the four fixed signs, they are the most rooted in the earth.   We are all experiencing rather challenging aspects right now.  The world feels very unsettled.  The best way to deal with these “weather patterns” is to make sure you spend as much time as possible connecting to Mother Nature.  All the things that Taurus represents:  gardens, forests, soil, and animals….bring these elements into your life with intention.  There have been studies done on the power of walking barefoot.  Take off your shoes and just stand on the earth.  When was the last time you did this?
