youre ready yet. By acknowledging
that your life would be better without

books (as listed on Goodreads) as The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller or Sleeping in Flame by Jonathan Carroll to recognize
that the topic of reincarnation is still alive and resurgent.

Dr. Todd Borlik, Professor of English Literature at Bloomsburg

University discusses one of the reasons for this resurgence:

Borlik: The theme of mortality is universal. We have a constant

desire to know what happens after death. It has given us an
opportunity to see ourselves not bound in bodies but connected
to everything else.

Borlik,whose latest book, Ecocriticism and Early Modern

English Literature reincarnation offers a special purpose in
literature as a way of breaking down the boundaries between
the human and non-human:

Borlik: Reincarnation is ecologically sound. In literature and

for the purposes of my book, it can work as a powerful metaphor
for extending ourselves in nature.

Dr. Borlik infuses the topic of reincarnation in Ecocriticism

Available at Amazon! and Early Modern Literature in many other ways as well. In one of the chapters of his book Reincarnating Pythagoras, Anima
Mundi and the Gaia Theory, one way he does so is by examining
how Elizabethan poets like William Shakespeare, and Edmund
36 Psychic Guidepost
Spencer draw on reincarnation to endow nature
with a sentience and a soul.

For Borlik, regardless of whether he may or may

not hold a personal belief in reincarnation we can
learn through analysis of his text and the texts
of those who came before him how intertwined
reincarnation has become in literature today.

The theme of reincarnation will continue to

rebirth itself throughout the centuries. By
purposefully cross-examining the texts of the
ancients, cultures such as India and the works
of modern day authors such as Todd Borlik, we
can gain powerful insights into the historical
consciousness of humanity and how it has
wrestled with, negated or accepted the belief in and poetry journals including The Pittsburgh

Aries March 21-April 19: Relationships take center stage for you this month for better or
worse. With your ruler (Mars) moving retrograde through your 7th house and the Lunar Eclipse
taking place there on the 15th, youll be dealing with relationships issues for at least the first few
weeks. Mars is not comfortable in Libra. And its not used to slowing down or retracing steps
which is exactly what happens when a planet retrogrades. So be prepared to rehash old con-
flicts and revisit old haunts. The Universe is forcing you to deal with things that you and a loved
one need to resolve before you can move forward. The Eclipse will shed light on problems and
reveal to you things that have been kept in the dark, including areas youve been in denial about yourself. In the
meantime, a grand cross is forming across your personal, relationship, professional and home sectors, and this is
where things start to get really tricky. You could feel like youre being pulled in several different directions, or like
everyone wants a piece of you and theres just not enough to go around. Your best bet will be finding a middle
ground; getting centered and giving what you can to each area without losing sight of yourself.

Taurus April 20-May 20: You could be looking into some health concerns this month that
have been put off but are now surfacing enough to get your attention, With Mars retrograding
through your 6th house (the area associated with physical health) and the Sun and Uranus con-
junct in your 12th house (the area related to hidden problems and weaknesses) you want to take
stock of both your physical and mental well-being. Youre known for having a good constitution
so this is probably not going to develop into a grave concern. But its also wise not to ignore it.
The first eclipse (a lunar eclipse) takes place in your health sector on April 15th, just after Pluto changes direc-
tions. This is a powerful transit because its a part of a grand cross that is stretched across your cadent houses.
Take the time to assess your mental and physical state during this time and make appropriate adjustments. The
Sun moves into Taurus on the 19th and Mercury follows suit on the 23rd. Youll probably start feeling more in
your element at that time. The solar eclipse on the 28th falls in your sign and should bring with it the clarity and
perspective youve been longing for. See this as an opportunity to reinvent yourself and embrace the changes

there are those that could go right. For starters, Mars rules your friendship sector, which ought
to tell you the best place to put (and keep) an old love interest who resurfaces at this time. The
Full Moon this month (a Lunar Eclipse) falls across your romance / friendship sectors, reinforc-
ing this concern. Your ruler (Mercury) is in Pisces (where its not happy) until the 23rd, when it moves into Aries
(where it is happy). Because Mercury in Pisces can cloud your thoughts and have you indulging in too much
wishful thinking, you may want to hold off on making major decisions until that time. The New Moon (a Solar
Eclipse) on the 28th falls in your 12th house: the area associated with self-undoing. The good news for you the
best news ever is that this area is also tied to dreams, spiritual inspiration, intuition and creative potential. You
can take your pick as to how this will manifest ultimately, so choose wisely and go make your dreams a reality.

Cancer June 22-July 23: As much as you may feel like staying close to home this month, chanc-
es are good you wont be able to. For starters youve got Mars (your career-ruler) retrograding
through your 4th house the area associated with home and family. This can manifest as prob-
lems juggling your professional and family obligations, having to take work home with you, or
unable to disconnect from your work even away from the job. You could also run into problems
Spring Issue 59
with family members or find yourself having to take care of one who is ill. The lunar eclipse on the 15th also
takes place across this axis, bringing problems youve tried to sweep under the rug to the forefront. Therell be
no hiding your head in the sand with this eclipse. In the meantime theres a cardinal grand cross forming that is
stretched across your angular sectors. The good news for you is that Jupiter one leg of the cross is in your
sign and exalted, meaning that youre less likely to be negatively impacted by it.

Leo July 24-August 23: If youre planning on doing any traveling this month, take time to put a
Plan-B in place as there are bound to be snafus. With Mars retrograding through your 3rd house
(the area related to local travel) you could have car problems or scheduling conflicts. The Lunar
eclipse the 15th also takes place in this area. Its not a good time to sign contracts or make major
decisions related to training or education. At the beginning of the month, your ruler (the Sun)
will be conjunct Uranus in Aries. Youll probably be bursting at the seams with ideas, and may
be impatient to put them into action. But youre bound to run into some snags especially with co-workers or
business partners. Dont be surprised if your enthusiasm lands you in a self-created pickle on the job. Doing the
work of two or three people, being called out for overstepping your bounds, making careless mistakes, etc: these
are all possibilities with this aspect, especially as it tightens into a grand cross later in the month. The second
Eclipse, on the 28th, falls in your professional sector.

Virgo August 24-September 22: Youll be focusing on your relationships for the better part of
the month, especially after the 5th when Venus moves into your 7th house joining Mercury
(your ruler), Chiron and Neptune. Venus is exalted in Pisces and Neptune is its modern ruler, so
bringing them together with your own ruler bodes well for you. Falling in love, renewing your
vows, discussing lifes mysteries or figuring out ways to make the world a better place (Neptune
and Chiron) are just a few examples. This can be a very idealistic and romantic time for you, but
dont lose sight of practical concerns, especially regarding money and your health. Mars rx moving through your
financial sector and the lunar eclipse taking place there mid-month can bring financial problems to the surface.
The eclipse just so happens to occur on tax day so get your records in order and dont take any risks. This is not a
good time to lend or borrow money: right now you want to be responsible (and accountable) for your own debts.
Save some for a rainy day too:

Libra September 23-October 22: Right now, youre trying to figure out ways to balance your
career with family, personal and relationship obligations. With Mars retrograding through your
sign for the last five months, its probably not been a picnic. You may be questioning whether
youre even pursuing the right career path or whether your relationship is worth holding onto.
This is not the time to make a change, as much as you may feel like throwing in the towel. Think
back to what you were doing 19 years ago. With the Nodes now in your sign for the first time
since 1995 you may experience notable synchronicities or dj vu occurrences related to that earlier time. The
Full Moon eclipse on the 15th stretches across your relationship axis, bringing any hidden problems to the sur-
face. Its the not a good time to start or end a relationship but it is a good time to hash out problems so that they
can be resolved.

Scorpio October 23-November 22: The 6th house / 12th house axis, which relates to both
mental and physical health is going to be lit up like a firecracker for you this month. As such you
want to pay attention to health-related concerns rather than ignoring and avoiding them. You
may have been working too hard and neglecting your health, or you could be nursing an ail-
ment on your own that will end up causing you to seek medical attention, such as back or dental
problems, etc. Speaking of work, this is another area that youre going to have to figure out a way
to balance this month. Your career ruler is moving through your work sector most of the month, which will have
you chomping at the bit to make things happen. But a grand cross thats developing threatens to derail your best
laid plans. Its going to be all about balance work with home and family; your physical and mental well-being
60 Psychic Guidepost
with taking care of others; and your personal goals with those of your partners or loved ones.

Sagittarius November 23-December 20: This month you may be trying to figure out where to
put certain people in your life. Are they friends? Lovers? Casual acquaintances? As much as you
like to roll with the punches and let things take their natural course, youll probably be forced to
define your relationships with others. Unfortunately this can also manifest as cutting people out
of your life for good but not without cause. The combination of Mars retrograding through
and the Full Moon eclipse taking place in your friendship sector can unmask the truth behind
nagging suspicions and can bring conflicts to a head. Your ruler is exalted in Cancer and moving
through your 8th house the area associated with sex, death and other peoples money. You could be in line for
an inheritance or settling a law suit, or you may be expecting a nice tax refund. Either way you want to put it
into savings. If you decide to invest it or lend it to someone during this time, you might as well kiss it goodbye.
Your libido should also be quite high courtesy of that same Jupiter transit. But remember the relationship
dilemma and try not to complicate your love life any more than it already is.

Capricorn December 21-January 20: Youve got a lot on your plate this month and a lot of
people relying on you, most of whom will be vying for your attention all at once. Mars is elevated
in your career sector now. Its in detriment (not good) and retrograde (a lot of back-peddling)
and will ultimately complete the last leg of a cardinal grand cross (very stressful and crisis-ori-
ented). So what is there to look forward to this month? Well for starters this grand cross stretches
across four major sectors for you: personal, professional, relationship and family. Youll have
opportunities to show others what youre made of in all four areas. You may feel like youre under a great deal of
pressure, that youre spread very thin, and that theres not enough of you to go around. But youll also have the
chance to step up and take charge something you do very well. Your ruler is also now retrograde and is mov-
ing through friend and social sector. Its a good time to get back in touch with old friends and to repair old rifts.

Aquarius January 21-February 19: You may need to reign yourself (and your opinions) in a
bit this month. Youre either in danger or rubbing people the wrong way or could end up with
egg on your face over some fact that gets disproved publicly if youre not careful. Your ruling
planet (Uranus) is in Aries and moving through your 3rd house (the area associated with com-
munications) and is the focal planet of an intense t-square aspect thats developing into an even
more intense grand cross. So what does this mean for you? It means youre going to be impatient
(Aries) to express your ideas and opinions (3rd house), which leads to conflicts (t-square) with
others. You do like to be in the know but these transits can trick you into repeating information prematurely or
asserting conjecture as fact. Venus is in your sign at the start of the month and moves into your money sector on
the 5th. This would be a good time to buckle down and focus on making money.

Pisces February 20-March 20: You may be feeling a bit emotionally fragile until the 5th when
Venus moves out of your 12th house and into your sign. Youve got a lot going for you now. Venus
is exalted in Pisces, and Jupiter (your modern ruler) is exalted in Cancer, while Neptune (your
traditional ruler) is in its own sign. With all this in your favor, you should be in better shape
than most. The whole world could be falling apart around you and as long as you can retreat to
your safe place mentally, emotionally and spiritually youll have a leg up on everyone else.
Expressing yourself creatively, spending time with children, developing romantic connections all these are
potential manifestations of this energy.There are some stressful aspects, too: with all thats going on itll to be im-
possible to avoid them. You wont want to be spending money frivolously for example. And its not a good time to
gamble or take financial risks. You could also be clearing out some old (fair-weather) friends and making room
for new friends. There may be moments of loneliness or uncertainty, but dont doubt yourself. These transits are
clearing away the dead wood in your life now in order to replenish them with what (and whom) you really need.
