Aries and Spring Cleaning


It’s SPRING and it’s no time to hibernate and lie back.  Aries has a message for you all and it’s loud and clear – “The starting bell is ringing” and this is the moment for all you Arians (and all the rest of us) to start our Spring Cleanings.  It’s time to let go of anything that no longer serves you.
Now is the time to – just do it!

Are you still hesitating to get rid of those chipped flower pots or repairing the torn cover of your favorite armchair?  Does your clothes closet need a good looking over and cleaning out?
Now is the time to – just do it!

And you know, the process is not just about things.  It may also be about people and personalities.  You might have to get face-to-face with a critical parent and defend your point of view.  Your obnoxious and single-minded boss may be getting on your nerves and force you to stand up to him to tell him what you really think about his latest marketing strategy.
Now is the time to – just do it!

Aries’ message to us all is about Courage.
Tell your fears to take a hike, toss your hesitations and doubts and just do it

You already have the power.  All you have to do is use it.
No more excuses of not having enough money to go scuba diving in Cancun because you’re afraid to take that scuba diving class.  Feel the fear, face the fear and for once this year – just do it!


Need more ammunition to get your life out of neutral and on the road into high gear? Send me an email at: barbelbesseyre at or give me a call (919-929-3046) and we’ll do your chart (or the chart of a friend or family member). We’ll show you how the planets are telling you that now is the time to change your life so…just do it! 

Until next time,

It’s Spring …


Blue skies, warm temperatures, birds tweeting and a smell of freshness.  Spring is here.
Open your windows and allow the airiness of spring enter your home ! 

Equinox was yesterday, the 20th of March, the day the Sun crossed the equator from South to North and made the length of day and night the same.

This event symbolizes the season of rebirth, beginnings and renewal.  Truly the Rites of Spring.  Many countries celebrate the arrival of equinox in unique ways.  For example the Mayans celebrated the return of the light at the well known pyramid of El Castillo in Chichen Itza.   SpringEquinox

Persians make a 13 day celebration of the event.  Stone circles in Denmark, England and other countries  attract their yearly visitors to see the first Sunrays light up the stones. It is truly the moment to give thanks to Mother Earth for her abundance throughout the year and ask her to bless us for the coming year. Druids Celebrate The Summer Solstice At Stonehenge

Astrology also marks its beginning of another cycle.  The Sun enters the sign of Aries today, March 21st, the first sign of the classical, zodiacal circle.  It’s time to wipe your slates clean and start afresh, to move forward and be self-assertive.  With unending energy streams of your sign, you can make that sign shine brightly and sing along with George Harrison :

Celebrate the new season with lightness in your step and leave the cold darkness of winter behind.  The sap begins to rise in the plants and may your spirits rise and soar. Happy, happy spring days ahead for you, my dear readers.

Until next time, the time of the New Moon in Aries,

Why don’t you…







BB: Hi Vero,

Veronique: Salut, Barbel.
What’s been going on in your life?

BB: I’ve got exciting news. The New Moon phase started this past Monday and this time it’s in Sagittarius. Get ready for a ride on the big Ferris Wheel of life!

Veronique: Why in heaven’s name do you say that?

BB: Do you remember what happened to you this past Monday? An important event? What was different about this day? Did you have an appointment with someone who pointed you in a new direction? Were you inspired to do something that has been in the back of your mind for months?

Veronique: I will have to think back and try to remember what I did that day.
Oh, yes. I was called in my boss who offered me a new position.

BB: I’m delighted to hear that and sure hope that it’ll work out.
You know the New Moon generates new beginnings and this time these start-ups, always generate lots of optimism, vitality and movement. As though this wasn’t enough but they got a big push of encouragement by a beautiful alignment from that well-known planet of surprise Uranus in the sign of Aries.

Veronique: If I well remember from my astrology class both Sagittarius and Aries are fire signs. They must have had a real party up there.

BB: Yes, and with fireworks sending us a great deal of energy and prodding us to do something new. New impulses, inspiration and yearnings to start new projects. Those guys upstairs sure sent us lots of new ideas.
So now, why don’t you tell me what happened to you this past Monday?

Veronique: Well, you remember I used to do collage work, which I have neglected for the past two years. On Monday the idea of picking up this activity again popped into my mind. No later said than done, I settled down for the whole day creating my personal
X-mas card for the coming holidays. How excited and happy I was to place a piece of colorful paper next to another and another to finally create a piece of work that is to my liking.


BB: That’s great.
You’ll have to show me your work when we get together next time. You’re right on target, Vero.  It’s the perfect time to start a new project, just like you’re doing.  This New Moon gives you a great opportunity until the 9th. So don’t delay, grab those magazines and scissors and start cutting away.

See you then, Vero,

The New Moon in August


BB: Hi Veronique,

Veronique: Salut Barbel,

BB: Hey, Veronique, you know that on the 6th of this month it’s the New Moon and this month it’s in Leo. And that means that this is a perfect time to start new projects and plans.

Veronique: I don’t understand, BB, why particularly when it’s in Leo?

BB: Leo is all about influencing your creativity and it thrives on new ideas, fun and play, new things to enjoy and vacations.

Veronique: Well, you know, all that would fit right in with the outline of a book that I’m working on. It’s a guide for tourists and even Parisians who want to visit the neighboring areas surrounding Paris.

BB: I’m sure many a traveler would be really interested in a book like that. You know I still have a wonderful memory of the Giverny gardens, which are just outside of Paris. Monet was certainly a master in painting all the various flowers of his gardens at different times of the day – a real creative soul.


Veronique: You know, BB, that does certainly beat standing for hours in line to go to the Musee d’ Orsay, in the heart of Paris.

BB: So, Veronique, I hope that the “planting” of your new creative seeds at this particular time will be super successful. Be confident and upbeat about your new project and then the Universe will surely respond with great results.

Veronique: Thanks for the advice, my dear friend. I’ll let you know how things go. It does seems to be the perfect timing for my project. And happy vacationing to you and many thanks for your support.

Bonnes vacances to all of you,

The Star of David


 Today, July, 29th, there is a special alignment in the heavens.

It is made up of two inter-related triangles and is called the Star of David, Soloman’s Seal, The Star of Bethlehem and The Hexagram. Going back to Sacred Geometry of the Greeks, this configuration was also given the name the Star Tedrahedon.

In this special figure, the position of six planets are linked and interwoven. Each planet is perfectly placed in harmonious alignment to the next. Respecting each other’s place in the heavenly spheres, they create a safe space relative to each other and it all creates intense beams of Light streaming towards the Earth – beams of Light which we respectfully receive as joyful radiations of delight and encouragement.

There is something very magical about this configuration, but let’s not get too carried away. Let these two interconnected triangles humbly help us in our everyday lives.

At this beginning of the week, don’t doubt you can really do well the job that your boss assigned to you last week. Don’t wait to strike out on your own and open that jewelry shop you’ve always dreamed of owning.

This starry alignment is very special and magical and through it, we can manifest our wildest dreams. Let’s all create something special in our lives, in the here and now!

Joy and bliss to you,

Days of Grace

bull-elk-creek-crossingToday is July 19th and Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn are raining their exquisite energies down upon us. Their energy is of the water which stimulates and stirs up all our feelings and sensibilities. We might feel melancholic, gloomy and sentimental but beware! Do not lose yourselves in these turbulent waters. Rather step aside and move around and beyond them. Forgive yourself for the wrong words, the tactless gesture and the hurtful remark and move on. Forgive yourself for your frantic thoughts and obsessive fears and move on. Let go of your deepest pains and move on.

There is a new energy awaiting us.
By moving beyond these turbulent waters and not wallowing in them, we reach the place of quiet, soothing and healing waters of these four days of grace. The burdensome and oppressing ways of the past will now be lightened and the quiet waters will carry us on the way to new experiences, discoveries and possibilities.

This is a most appropriate time to start a new project, to plan your schedule differently and to introduce some spunk into your life. You’ll see, the pot of gold is waiting at the end of the horizon.

Days of Grace to all of you,

Conversations with Veronique


Conversations with Veronique

On the phone:
BB: Hey! Let’s welcome summer and celebrate the entry of the Sun into the sign of Cancer. We could have lunch outside of Weaver Street Market and chat under the pecan trees.

Outside of Weaver Street Market:
Veronique: That was a great idea of yours, B.B. The change of season is upon us and look, everyone is in shorts. Summer is finally here and we can relish eating one of my favorite dishes, crab cakes.

crab-cakes-su-656208-lBB: Oh yeah, I love crab cakes too . You know, Veronique, the sign of Cancer is associated with the sign of the crab. This cute little crustacean represents the symbolic meanings of Cancer very well with its shell being its home. Family and family relationships are on top of our list for the coming month. Talking about crabs, the word crabby comes to my mind. Would you happen to be crabby now and then?

Veronique: Yes, sure I’m moody now and then and I even become angry when Frank refuses to pick up his clothing and considers me his live-in maid. We’ll have to work on some of our pet peeves that might provoke a quarrel or a misunderstanding on either side.

BB: Good idea. So, for the coming month let’s celebrate the family and family relationships. Let’s plan a party for Becky, my cousin, to show her we appreciate her volunteer work for the girls soccer team. We could plan an outing on Lake Jordan for the sailing club and bring crab cakes. That would be an ideal way of celebrating the arrival of the sign of Cancer.

Veronique: Thanks for your suggestions. I’ve got to run and we’ll e-mail each other to fix the date of our next get-together. Ciou, ciou . I’ll have to get out my red striped shorts.

So take the cue from the crab: when you get home,
pick up the phone and tell your family that you love them.

Until next time,
Warmly yours,
