Survive on your own terms
The Mercury/Pluto Square - " You can't fool all of the people all of the time." Abraham Lincoln
Since the 2008 stock market collapse triggered by the deregulated "too big to fail" banks, the public has been informed that by using taxpayers money to prop up the TBTF banks and bail out the entities that "financialized" the worthless sub-prime mortgages and sold them to nations that recently are near collapse and who have created derivative contracts in the realm of over $800 Trillion worldwide, we saved our economy and have been in a "recovery" ever since.
The "Real" Economy:
The Mercury/Pluto square lands squarely on China's Sun in Libra, exposing their inadequate leadership and phony economy that has fallen off the cliff. They have depended upon selling their products abroad cheaply because of their low wage workers who migrated into their cities from the farms. Their labor force cannot afford to buy these products, so as the global economy is drying up, their profits are in a major decline even though they have devalued their currency multiple times.

The Pope's Visit to the U.S.
The Pope's scheduled visit to the U.S. Comes at a very critical time in our history. His dedication to equal opportunity and justice for all, compassion for the poor, and message of universal love reminds us of what this country had at its origin, especially as he visits Philadelphia, our original capitol, the "city of brotherly love". The planetary patterns at this time are expressing crisis, dissension, and likely natural disasters, as Mercury is retrograde square Pluto and Mars and Jupiter are square Pluto. Hopefully, he will be safe and able to express the message we all need to hear from this most courageous leader of a great world religion.

Last Spring, Dick and I had a grid-tied Solar Panel system installed on our house. We like the idea of being "part of the solution"... plus it's fun, exciting, and interesting. Best of all, we chose the most popular leasing plan (no down payment). The monthly payments indirectly provide us with a significant portion of our electric energy at a rate lower than that of our utility. Our plan involves fixed payments. Initial savings are not huge but as inflation of utility rates rears it's ugly head we expect to benefit quite a bit.
A high quality local installer was engaged by Sungevity, our provider. It was cool to see engineers with advanced graduate degrees working on our roof.

Look through the site, you will see that the customer's referral code is a great deal for both the "refer-er" and the "referr-ee".
Several of you clicked for a free quote and were advised that Sungevity does not cover your area. We found that Sungevity operates in states that favor and provide incentives for residential and commercial solar installations. Here is a current list of these states... Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, and Vermont.
We were told by the installing engineers that the solar panels are even more efficient in cool and colder weather. The dual electric meter verifies that the panels outperform our utility on sunny days during the cold winter weather. We live on a hill and get a fair amount of wind. Snow is blown off the panels in short order.

I have been working steadily on this publication for nearly four years. The research I have done has been a "wake-up call" for me as I have tracked the historic trajectories that have led us to where we are now: at the critical point of choosing either extinction or illumination.
However, I am greatly encouraged at discovering that many people are developing new and innovative technologies that can solve the coming energy crises and are conceiving of new, more egalitarian economic systems and societal transformations. These pioneers may help us to navigate this "age of transition" from cannibalizing our planet to living in concert with the earth and each other.
Our journey through the great constellations has taken us to this place in time, this powerful historic point, this great challenge to human survival and evolution. It will take great courage on all our parts to open our hearts and minds to the level of truth needed to fulfill the great prophecies given to us through the ages. I think we can do it!

What Next? A Survival Guide to the 21st Century, by Linda Schurman, Lazer Lady Publishing, Inc., 2505 Anthem Village Dr., Ste. E-165, Henderson, NV 89052 USA, 2007. Softcover-164 pp.- $15.95 (ISBN 978-0-9796900-2-0). Available from: www.lazerladypublishing.com
Linda Schurman has maintained a private practice in astrology for more than 34 years. She is also a studious observer of the larger world stage, including domestic and global politics, climate change, financial markets, and social justice.
What Next? A Survival Guide to the 21st Century is a concise book that addresses the daunting issues of our time. This book is clearly written for non-astrologers. The specific astrology in the text is minimal; however, the author offers an educated view of the challenges we all face. The information, though directed to the general public, provides a timely and useful context for the concerns that clients bring to practicing astrologers every day.
The first chapter, "Pluto in Sagittarius (Nov. 1995 - Nov. 2008)," sets up the immediate background of where we are now by recapitulating the big themes of these years - Globalization, Financial Speculation, Religion, Law, Education, and the Media.
The next three chapters cover a similar range of themes and are organized around the outer planets' transits: Uranus in Pisces (Mar. 2003 - Mar. 2011); Neptune in Aquarius (Jan. 1998 - Feb. 2012) (Septile Pluto 2001 - 2011); and Pluto in Capricorn (2008 - 2024), Uranus in Aries (2011 - 2018), Neptune in Pisces (2011 - 2026).Schurman also writes on the upcoming Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius (Dec. 2020)and offers a chapter on "Sedna - A Planet of the 21st Century." Although the book is organized by astrological motif, and there are key astrological charts in the Appendices, the body of the text is informed by the work of (non-mainstream) journalists and economists.
Given the subject matter, Linda Schurman's book has a necessarily unflinching tone; she diligently refers to research on global warming, the energy crisis, corporate and political corruption, and other such matters. This author writes a large story in accessible language. She combines a view of the forces at work in the greater world with a positive and practical set of ideas for managing life in these often overwhelming times. For example, Schurman makes "prophecies" and suggestions throughout the book: Chapter 4 contains sections on the Worst-Case and Best-Case scenarios, as well as "The Quiet Revolution - Moving into the Solution" and "New Frameworks of Consciousness." Chapter 3 includes some investment recommendations and has a special section on solar design.
Linda Schurman is facing reality and yet also holds an impressively hopeful vision for the future. If you feel confused by the complexity of the times, her book will help you to sort out what has happened, who is responsible - and what we can do now (as she writes in the Introduction) to help ourselves become "able to 'invent' our way out of even the most profound set of challenges."

A Practical and Spiritual Survival Guide for the 21st Century,
There are several doomsday books that have been written that question our ability as a species to survive the threat of global warming, the impending energy crisis and a world that is imploding with new super bugs and looming pandemics, all of which are eventually guaranteed to wipe out civilization as we know it. This book, written by a well-renowned and incisive astrologer, not only points out the harsh truth about what the future holds for our planet and its people should we decide to continue our xenophobic thinking and behavior; it also provides hope through concrete scientific information, backed up by several references from well-respected professionals in their specific fields. The author also shows, through previous astrological patterns, how we are destined to repeat our mistakes with much graver consequences unless we choose to raise our consciousness in a way that connects us with every thread that runs through the universe and to realize that we all individually and collectively play a part in the future of our Mother Earth. The message that she brings to the table is that we are all our brothers' keepers. The book is concise and easy to read without the usual technical vernacular used in most astrology books, although it provides charts of nations and events to prove her points to the astrology student or professional. A beautifully written book that provides hope for change and a different future for our children and grandchildren in a world currently devoid of compassion and understanding for one another.
Important NOW Book,
What Next? by Linda Schurman is an astute account of the world's affairs, political, ecological, and economic, as they are today. Linda, a well-known astrologer makes dire predictions about where we are headed as a world, but she emphasizes it is up to us...we have choices, because although the planets and heavens have patterns that are read as given proclivities to certain events, they are not absolute because mankind's will can change events or prevent some. The book is important reading for our time, because we are running out of time for changing our fate. For professionals, Shurman gives official astrological charts to back up all her predictions. For the general public, we need this book to wake us up to what will likely happen if we don't act now. A MUST READ! I highly recommend this book.
