This month of August is incredibly potent.  The eclipse on August 21st will be felt especially by anyone who has planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.  My ascendant is at 27 degrees of Leo so this eclipse falls directly on my “front door”.  Stay tuned!  I will give a report next month and let you know what happened.  Remember that all eclipses amplify.  So whatever is going on in your life, will just get more intense.  Remember this doesn’t have to be a bad thing.  Sometimes these strong celestial energies deliver powerful good news and a lot of grace.  The double whammy for this event is that Mercury is also retrograde at the same time.  I was born with Mercury retrograde, so this month is super duper juiced up for me.   If you want to know more about the planet Mercury and whether you were born during Mercury retrograde, check out my book THE POWER OF MERCURY, which was published by Harper Collins last September.  It is a very useful guide for understanding all your relationships, because you can look up your Mercury sign and compare it to another person’s.  Originally I was going to call this book THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF ROMANCE, as I know this book is a valuable manual for anyone who is single.  If you can’t communicate with your partner, you want to know this early on!  Enjoy the power of this eclipse, and expect change.

cover-for-xmasHappy Holidays!  As many of you know, I have been extremely busy working on my new book, THE POWER OF MERCURY.  It has arrived!  Harper Collins published it in September, and at the same time I did my TED Talk on “THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING WRONG” in Hollywood CA.  I was also interviewed on COAST TO COAST radio, The Jenny McCarthy Show, Elle and Best Self Magazines and many others.  I created this book to help people understand why some people are easier for us to get along with than others.  I am not a big believer in using Sun Signs to determine compatibility.  I think the quickest way to find out if you click with someone is to find out how they communicate, how they process thoughts, what type of humor works for them, etc.   One needs to know a person’s Mercury Sign to truly understand their inner workings.  The first third of the book is about my history with astrology and how I believe it works.  The second part is about Mercury Retrograde, and why it is so important to know whether you were born during Mercury Retrograde….which my book will tell you!  The final third is about looking up your Mercury Sign and comparing it to the Mercury Signs of the people you share your life with.  I believe this book should be one of those books always by your bed.  Use it as reference guide to help you understand the people surrounding you.  If you are in the dating world, this book will save you from a lot of wondering.  You can also visit my newly designed website www.lesliemcguirk.com, where you can click on a Mercury calculator.  Just plug in anyone’s birthdate, and you will know their Mercury sign.  Also, the TED talk link is on my site.  Many of my clients have asked me to write about the results of this election.  Stay tuned!  But in the meantime, think about ordering my book for holiday gift giving!  Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to everyone!

BRAIN SCANEMDR

Brain-Scan

Brain-ScanRecently, I did a reading for a woman in her late 50′s who had two aspects in her chart indicating physical trauma.  The first was Pluto square her Mars.  The second was Saturn opposite her Sun.  I asked her if she had ever been physically attacked.  She told me that when she was 7, a gang of boys beat her up on the way to school.  This brutal attack led to a whole host of emotional issues, around not feeling safe. Many of you know I am a big fan of EMDR therapy.  I suggested this therapy for my client.  I told her that by physically going into the brain, and releasing this early trauma, her current life issues would become more manageable.  I believe past wounds influence our current life situations. I am all about healing bad memories so we can move forward.  Scientists have done scans of the brain, before and after EMDR therapy.  The brain actually changes after doing EMDR, and the patient is able to release traumas that get physically stuck inside the body.  There is a new book, that just came out, that explains what EMDR is, and how it works.  Even more importantly, it explains the spiritual side of the healing process. Anyone who is interested in removing any traumas, or any unwanted patterns of thinking, should read this book. The title is UNBURDENING SOULS AT THE SPEED OF THOUGHT, by Dr. Andrew Dobo. EMDR works quickly, and in my opinion, more efficiently that regular talk therapy.  The reason for this is that EMDR works at the physical level of the brain.  If any of you have experienced EMDR therapy, let me know how it helped.  Please spread the word that there is hope out there for folks who are going through difficult times.

107If you happen to be near the San Diego area on August 1st, consider joining me and the well known yoga instructor, Stacy McCarthy, for a day of mindful meditation and astrology.  I met Stacy and her husband Tom, the last time I was teaching at Rancho La Puerta.  Stacy is a magnificent yoga teacher, and we both have a similar approach to teaching – which is to keep it simple and fun.  Together on August 1st, we will usher in the new month, with a day of combining our talents.  There will be a hike and then an astrology workshop at a private residence.  If you are interested in attending, just email me at leslie@luckystarsastrology.com.  I will also be in Mexico, presenting at Rancho La Puerta the week of July 25th, in case any of you are interested in crossing the border. Hasta Luego!
