Asking the Right Question

In order to get the right answer from The Astrology Oracle you have to ask the right question.

A good place to start is with a simple reading – the Time Snapshot. Make a silent request to be shown the most important information about your life right now. Using Dianne Skafte’s great example, take the basic phrase, ‘What perspective should I take on this issue in order to proceed in the best way?’ and convert it to ‘What perspective should I take on my life right now in order to proceed in the best way?’

Remember that time is a river and you are stopping in mid-stream to take a snapshot of all the factors. The past flowing into the present. The present flowing into the future. The future flowing back into both of them.

You may want to start a journal in order to record your readings and make notes and also to track how they manifest for you. Over the course of this year, I will hold online workshops and masterclasses for you about The Astrology Oracle to take your readings further.

    • I’m sorry as I know this must be so stressful for you. You say “we” and I don’t have the chart of the other person, or the other people, involved, so I can’t comment as I only have part of the story. What I would tell you to make the most of, is the chance to go back over old ground, regarding a property. Perhaps a family. I say this because you have Mercury Retrograde delaying or changing the story that was there on September 24th to 27th. It will be played out again from October 29th to November 10th when you have a second and perhaps a third chance to make some changes. Thank you.

  1. Today was frustrating as my trial was adjourned
    My business partner will be on trial on this week
    He controls our finances and a successful outcome for will mean a financial abundance outcome for me
    A loss will be total despair
    Have things changed For a more favourable outcome for me

    • I am sorry about the delay. You are still going through Mercury Retrograde, which is well-known for delays, rescheduling and the rest. You’ll see twists in the tale, hold-ups and perhaps reversals until 20th November as Mercury goes backwards through Libra (partnerships) and Scorpio (finance). There is a lot to untangle financially. It is impossible to say if this is you, or your partner, as I don’t have his chart. I also don’t have the chart of the opponent in court, of course. As a broad interpretation, the man with the money who is surrounded by valuable assets, the finer things of life (antiques, good wine and so on) is also completely bound and tied down by all he has produced and grown. The material world traps him. He should think about property but he doesn’t, because he just can’t move that fast or that far. He’s very earthy – Capricorn and/or Taurus. I would suggest you communicate and connect. Negotiate. What does he want? How could you assist? He is open to persuasion. He does have a considerable sum there to use. He’s crazy if he doesn’t loosen up a bit, make some changes, liberate himself and get moving with a property matter. That would be my general reading for you, but as I say – it’s a bit hampered by lack of information about the other charts.

    • Yes, you will be like J.K. Rowling and make rock bottom the foundation of future success. You are one of many, many people who may have to go legally bankrupt, but that is really the system’s fault, not yours. Okay, the good news is that from 21st December you will see both the challenge and the solution. In fact, there will be opportunities and answers from that point forward, no matter how many obstacles you face. It is very likely that banks, business or governments will talk about new measures from that point. You will go back and forth with paperwork or calls, negotiations or agreements, January 16th to March 13th, but will still feel optimistic and so you should. From 2023 you will come out of the biggest learning experience in 29 years and head for the greatest chance in 248 years. Chiron in Aquarius in the Eleventh House of your chart is about friends and groups. You belong to a group, or will join one, in 2021 which brings about a jaw-dropping opportunity and reward which involves getting away with what others say you cannot or should not.

  2. Thank you today Sunday
    I drew the Midheaven and tenth house in the astrology Readings
    Yet my investments will be probably be liquidated by the court tomorrow
    We are hoping that we maybe able to start again with the influence of an now unknown third party although I will no longer have much funds available
    Can you see this happening

    • Good cards. This is about your future success, ambition, position and mission. So, despite the liquidation (you are not alone; millions are going through it) you are on track for a new beginning, in terms of your career, unpaid work or study. Ask yourself what your highest achievement could be. The mountain top. No matter how high you have to climb. Then start climbing. Go for the core of what you want and need; is it – perfecting your craft, serving others, saving a town – what is it?

    • This is literally (round number) comment number 12,000 as I look up at the screen. Let me see if I can find you in the queue, or do ask again and I will check the questions and comments again tomorrow. Thank you.

  3. What perspective should I take on this new Finance project, How to proceed in the best way?
    My Angels are contacting me now

    • Yes, the only thing to add to your question is a deadline. ‘What perspective should I take on this new finance project (for 2021, or for 2021-2022) and how to proceed in the best way (for this year, for the next two years, five years and so on).

    • That is also the right way to ask your question – set a time limit. Don’t forget to check in with the present and do it three times, using Your Oracle, The Astrology Oracle and the Tarot for validation.

  4. What perspective should I take on this new finance project for 2021 which will be ongoing for up to 5 years and how to proceed in the best way for this year, and the next five years

  5. Hi Jessica

    I am completely new to Astrology. I have always read my horoscopes in every paper and magazine I open! I have purchased the premium membership and 2021 Astrology report but at the minute it’s like a foreign language to me. I am really looking forward to learning and understanding all of this though.

    I didn’t even know what a birth chart was! I have familiarised myself about the layout etc. Could you please help me understand this a bit more. What can you read from my birth chart overall?

    I hope I’ve posted this in the correct page. Thanks

    • Sure, Karen. Astrology is a language and it can take time. The most important thing I can tell you, is that after an extremely tough time with your general lifestyle, health and wellbeing (for example: conditions that were hard or expensive to fix; complaints you never thought you would have to deal with) and also your daily routine, employers/staff/colleagues – you are now so much better off. In fact, 2018, 2018 were the toughest years for overall lifestyle, workload, wellbeing in decades and although solutions did appear in 2020 (despite the pandemic, or strangely, because of it) it has not been until now – 2021 – that you are seeing just how much better life can be. There is more to come, Karen, and with Uranus in Taurus in your success sector until 2026 and Pluto in Capricorn in your work sector until 2023, the years 2021, 2022, 2023 in particular are all about getting proper rewards for hard work done in the past. This is the karma cycle and the more you gave, and worked, the better off you will be. There are also signs of a duet here, or a pair, or a double-act. It began to take off at the end of 2020 and is at the core of so much more that is possible for you in 2021. You need to take your time, figure out what is going to work, and go step-by-step. It may be a work duet, or a romance/marriage – it may be simple friendship – but ‘two’ is the number.

  6. I have drawn the seven cups
    In light of my past question I am projecting that my finance will be starting up soon in weeks
    Is the correct perspective to have

    • You could have the house or apartment situation that is like Disneyland for children (a dream come true) and the money to go shopping at Tiffany’s. However you could also have who or what you fear. The Seven of Cups shows you looking at what is not real. That is why it is in a cloud. Property in the first cup. Jewels in the second cup. Victory in the third cup. Then we have a skull, a dragon, a snake and a ghost! So there is a lot of fear with you, also pure imagination. To get the money, home and success, get rid of who or what threatens you. It’s not real. Reach for what you do what and make it real. Believe it is there for you, know you deserve it, be very clear about bringing it into your life. But until you banish who/what is scarey or toxic to you, you’re never going to have the time, energy and focus to bring the good things into your world. You have a fair bit of work to do on yourself. Have a chat to yourself in the mirror. It works really well. Then get clear and real about what is possible, because it’s all possible.

  7. I gave notice on my job of almost 2.5 years on March 24, 2021 (partly because I was increasingly unhappy with it). The job will end on April 30, 2021, after which I plan to take the rest of 2021 to finish my master’s degree. What is my higher education prognosis for 2021 and beyond, and what is my career prognosis in 2022 and beyond?
    PS: When I say ‘career’ prognosis, I also mean ‘financial’ prognosis.

    • The work situation (or academia) will challenge you and change you, and those around you, for years ahead. Ultimately you will come to see that it was the biggest experimental laboratory of your life and what you began in 2011-2018 when you rejected particular roles, goals or people connected to your job, was the start of a new life path. In April 2021 you have more choices to make, especially around April 12th, about how to live, how to be useful to other people, how to do the housework and the study, how to give unpaid efforts to others, what to eat/drink, when to sleep/exercise and the rest. This is even more crucial with Covid of course. Having completely reinvented your lifestyle and work patterns by 2018 and become so much more free and independent, you are now at stage two of the journey, and in April 2021 you will see what you can get away with. It’s rather like a player breaking free at the World Cup and aiming for an impossible goal. In general 2021 is all about that; your MA might involve a part-time line of work as well, for example. Later on in life it is possible you will lecture in an Ivory Tower university, rather like Oxford or Cambridge, as we find you escaping into a bubble, when ‘work’ is actually a holiday from reality.

  8. Hi l am a new member this year. I look at my birth chart and read daily horoscopes trying to understand how l can find this information for myself. I realise that it will take a long time before l am equipped with the knowledge to do myself, but l would like a bit of help to get started. I would like to know what you see in my birth chart and relate to me how you see it. How do l pick up this information ? I know you are very busy and l do appreciate any help at all.

    • It takes time to learn your own chart so if you are new to astrology give yourself as long as you need. A really basic way to begin is to look at anything in your chart at the same number or degree. Minerva at 0 Cancer and Venus at 0 Gemini in your chart are a good example. Just work with that for now. Your wisdom (Minerva) is about houses, families, apartments, households, home town and homeland matters (Cancer) and every time you are making choices about that (like, renovations, or family reshuffles, or the local council) you also get Venus in Gemini along for the ride. Venus is complicated relationships. Gemini is the internet, the media, advertising, education, publishing. Gemini the twins also rules siblings. So that is a lifelong pattern. It may be that you and a brother or sister are caught in a loop pattern about the family. You need to interpret it for yourself as I don’t know anything about you, but every time a transiting or travelling planet goes to 0 degrees, Minerva and Venus wake up in your chart. This is the chart of someone who would be a good family therapist or real estate agent, actually.

  9. Hi Jessica,
    Thank you so much for all your tips available.
    I am new member and I have a specific professionnal questions. I thought I would be able to find my self the answers but it’s too complicate for me. Could you please kindly help me to get the answers?
    Since almost 10 years I was looking for a new position but whatever my efforts in research and perseverance…nothing, not even one contract! And now after 10 years it appears finally two positions and I refused because for one of them didn’t get the feeling and the 2nd company the conditions were not good for me… I am too scared to change and be again in the same situation that I lived in my actual company… but the 2nd company came back to me again so I requested them better conditions…i don’t know if they will accepte…so how I can see that I will do a move into this company? Will I be happy and grow? If i refuse will I never find again a good position…in the other hand I want as well to create a company in portugal (I am actually leaving in switzerland) my idea is emerging and is related to real estate and insurance… and I don’t if it just a dream or if I will be able to turn it true and successful… too many thinks and doubts…

    I would be so grateful if you could help me to understand my career path.

    • Thank you. So, no job for ten years and then you were offered two, and refused both. Now, the second company is back again and you’ve asked for better conditions. Switzerland is something you need to look at, before you think about anything else. Compare Switzerland to Portugal, please, and look at the Swiss and the nation in terms of the European Union and the pandemic. Everything you need to know about your career, comes back to that country. Even if you think you know the score, do your homework and your research. Your common sense should tell you that you accept the job, and if you dislike it, you can resign. Correct?
