Mars rules adrenaline and all the feelings that accompany that state: assertion, aggression and anger -- basically, "seeing red."

  • Numerology: Are You a Sun Number 4?

    The Varied Personalities of Numbers

    It is 4/4, and you may notice more people taking a "my way or the highway" approach to life. That's because in Numerology, the number 4 is stubborn and no-nonsense.

    Numbers, like people, are not always as predictable as you might wish them to be. Each of the single-digit numbers has a wide range of qualities, many of them apparently paradoxical, as is the case with people. Some of their qualities are hiding in the wings until circumstances send them to center stage. Some of those qualities are clearly two-faced: one day they show their good side, but the next day their bad side reveals itself.

    When I first became involved in Numerology, I took the descriptions of the meanings of numbers more or less literally. It was all pretty straightforward. Over time, the more I practiced and the more I learned, that picture changed. I no longer thought about numbers as clearly defined and severely limited

    While Western Astrology centers around the planet Earth, the 13 signs of Celtic Astrology are based on the cycle of the Moon. Long ago, the Celts imagined the universe as a tree with deep roots and neverending branches. Around 1000 B.C. people began to designate a tree for each Moon phase in the lunar calendar.

    Each Celtic tree sign has different powers and meanings, along with corresponding spirit animals, a color, gemstone, and a Celtic "ogham" -- a symbolic letter of the Celtic alphabet meant to attract luck, protect from harm, and heighten each tree sign's unique powers.

  • Should You Beware the Ides of March? No!

    March 15 is only ominous to ancient astrologers and Julius Caesar

    Are you ready for a fun Astrology history lesson on this Ides of March?

    Here we go: Sometime in early March of 44 B.C., an ancient Roman astrologer named Spurinna predicted the death of Julius Caesar. She told him to "Beware the Ides of March" and that he would be in great danger on this day -- March 15, as "ides" is derived from the Latin meaning "to divide" and falls exactly mid-month.

    As the ancient Greek story by Plutarch goes, Caesar ignored Spurinna's advice because a friend convinced him the astrologer's warnings were superstitious foolishness. He even ran into Spurrina on the way to the Theatre of Pompey on March 15 and told her (sarcastically, no doubt) "The Ideas of March are come." She replied, "Yes, they are come, but they are not past."

    Shortly afterward, Caesar was stabbed to death in the Theatre of Pompey by the Liberatores of the Roman Senate and elite. (Most history

  • 3.14: It's Easy as Pi

    I don't think I'm the only one whose fantasizing of warm, rich marionberry, apple and cherry crusty, baked goodness ... but I hate to break it to you: it's not "pie" day you've been hearing about, it's "Pi" Day! March 14, or 3/14, is celebrated as "Pi" Day because pi is that infinite mathematical number abbreviated 3.14.

    And another pattern: This one day of the year that's devoted to math for the masses, also happens to be famous mathematician Albert Einstein's birthday!

    So what makes pi so amazing, anyway? It's one of the most important constants in mathematics, and has been used by number crunchers, scientists and engineers for centuries. Pi is used in a number of mathematical equations to determine things like the overall area of a circle or the volume of a cylindrical shape. While it's only been celebrated as a holiday since the late 1980s, the number pi has been studied and used for thousands of years. Most recently, the
