Captain, may I have a reading, please?



  • Captain, may I please have a reading for the coming year? It's been a long time since I've had one. There's been an awful lot of nonsense. Some direction would be very helpful. Thank you.



  • Scorpioreader, 2014 for you will be all about changes and opportunities. Last year was a tough, hard-working period when you may have felt like you were trying to move through quicksand. 2014 holds many opportunities for you to achieve greater freedom than you have ever had. You will have to devise some resourceful and innovative ways to retain and expand your freedom, whatever that may mean to you, while you may feel or be urged to do just the opposite. 2014 for you is about diversity, travel, and different cultures. Whatever you are dealing with, seek a deeper understanding of what is involved. Awareness of reality is the best safety-net you can have in this exciting and unpredictable year. Issues of change, chance, variety, choice, different belief systems, the sudden, the unexpected, the unusual, and the physical will all arise now. This year will be quite an experience for you - a new experience.

    You now stand at the halfway point of a whole cycle of your life. The first four years are behind you. The last four are yet to come. The events of this 'middle' year will enable you to know the difference between the old you, the present you, and the potential you. Expect a substantial change in your life, or a sequence of smaller changes that will lead not only to a whole new way of life, but also a completely new understanding of life itself. 2014 will provide opportunities to turn your life around by setting off in a direction that is totally different to any you have taken before. The best way to approach this journey is with a complete change of attitude. Last year was limiting and restrictive. This year, you must focus on being limitless and free, and be able to recognize opportunity as it appears. This will require an open and adventurous mind. Pick and choose carefully between your various options. Take only those which pertain to your true desires and not your temporary whims. If you try to take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself this year, the confusion of so much diversity will limit your ability to focus, and this could prevent success in any area. If the year's energies could be seen as roads or highways, 2014's route would be the widest and busiest. This is where all traffic seeks a change of course. Without a basic goal or sense of direction, accidents occur and people find themselves in places they don't want to be. Start out with a firm goal in mind; a specific sense of destination. But do be flexible. Even the best laid plans can change without warning signs of any kind. 2014 is the year of sudden and the unexpected - the unforeseen.

    You are embarking on a fast-paced journey which is filled with options, action, and excitement. It is an adventure into life. It is a time to discover your true potential by experiencing things you have not experienced before. This year is likely to be full of new people, new places, and new possibilities. An opportunity may fall right into your lap, or you may find yourself going back and forth in all directions, as you consider whether a particular change of course is what you want or not. Finally, a decision must be made, and courage may be required. Base your choices on the feelings that come from your awareness of reality, and an understanding of the probable outcome of your choices. After the age of about forty, you probably became more pragmatic and realistic than you were earlier in your life. This does not mean however you should judge something before you have experienced it. It means that you must be aware of how one change can create a chain reaction of many changes. It is essential that you know what you are feeling on a moment-by-moment basis. Denied feelings can remain trapped inside you and deplete your freedom. This year you will be releasing all the unexpressed emotion which has weighed you down for far too long. Regardless of what is happening globally, the world is opening up for you now, and is inviting you to experience it to the fullest. Yes, experience itself is what is on offer this year. In order to receive it, and in order to retain your freedom, some mistakes may have to be made. Remember that a mistake becomes experience when its lesson is learned and not repeated. Allow your mistakes to evolve into expertise. One of the biggest mistakes you could make this year is giving up on something before you have given yourself the opportunity to experience it in a state of freedom. You do not always have to lose what you have in order to get what you want. Guilt, disguising itself as fear, makes you feel this way.

    This year, you will become aware of the mistakes you frequently make which always result in disappointment. The year's energy will help you to finally take responsibility for your mistakes and, if you really are open to freedom and meaningful change, it will provide the alternatives you seek. From this experience, you will become stronger, more capable, effective, relaxed, and impressive as a human being because you will have learned and grown from a mistake instead of repeating it. Your mistake will no longer be a source of misery, guilt, and disappointment. It will no longer be a mistake. It will be EXPERIENCE. Your greatest challenge this year - and every year - is overcoming inertia. Understand and realize when you are letting fear or laziness take control of your actions. Change this by regaining control of your life. Each month of 2014 will give you the opportunity to notice an ongoing mistake, change your approach and gain new experience. You will soon realize that freedom is always a matter of the choices you make. Loosen up and feel the freedom that exists within, regardless of your external situation. This powerful feeling will help you to change your outer circumstances. The 2014 vibration is acutely attuned to your expectations and desires. It is also the principle energy involved in sex and reproduction. Conception most often takes place when this type of energy is active. What will you conceive this year? A child? An idea? A plan? What are you expecting? What do you believe?

    Without change, we stagnate. Some changes will occur suddenly and unexpectedly, while others will be initiated by your own effort. Expect the unexpected. Be prepared for anything. Make freedom your prime concern. Understand that you are where you are so that you can prosper from the experience of it. If you are to make the appropriate choices and changes, you must be aware of reality at all times. There really are alternatives to your present circumstances but, first, you must recognize what needs to be changed inside you. At some point this year, perhaps from the very beginning, you will feel a deep need - a powerful urge - for more freedom and spontaneity in your life. And, if you want to be free, you must start living more freely! Get away from old routines and do things differently. Look for those new directions. Do not scatter your attention or spread yourself too thin, otherwise you may find yourself jumping from one thing to another without accomplishing anything. Your curiosity can lead to success or to disappointment, so make sure you focus on what matters. The 2014 energy for you is a very sexual and physical energy, and these areas of your life will be very much in focus this year. Indulgence is fine, but do not fall into the trap of over-indulgence in the physical aspects of life which also include food, alcohol, drugs, gambling, taking foolish chances, and extravagance. Such behavior can give the appearance of freedom, but is actually an addiction of some kind. Excesses can create unexpected reversals which will impede your progress. That would be both sad and unnecessary this year. Place a special emphasis on your body. Take care of it. Respect it. Heal it. Strengthen it. Become more aware of your physical senses and abilities. Use them creatively. Get adequate rest and relaxation. Love your body and enhance your physical comfort. See things as they really are. One person's reality is not the same as another's. Honesty is essential because freedom cannot flow outside of reality. Start by being honest with yourself and you will see that honesty has nothing to do with laws, rules and regulations. It has to do with straightforwardness, truth, and self-acceptance. Head games and manipulation will backfire on you. Try to be genuine at all times.

    This year, don’t allow hidden fears and insecurities to plunge you into procrastination, resentment, and obscurity. This would be a tragedy because, if you can summon the courage to lift your 'veil' (you often present an energetic, bright and cheerful face to the world, yet this is more often than not a veil masking an intense and original but sometimes troubled personality), you are destined to shine, contributing your talents and energies to the greater good. Your horizons will be much broader now. 2014 has all the elements of being in the "fast lane". If you set out confidently, with a specific goal in mind, you will be able to relax and enjoy these action-packed episodes. Set your sights high and experience the reality of change, variety, adventure, opportunity and, above all, your own precious Free Will.

    Good luck!



  • Thank you, Captain, for your insights. I have many things I would like to do this year.



  • Well, I've really had to read this and ponder it. I have wondered for a long time if I will continue with the work I love. I can't imagine what else I would do. So I would hope any chants would be for the better in regard to this. I'm not real clear as to what is changing. I will agree that many changes need to be made.



  • Change of attitude or mindset becomes necessary when all our attempts to move in one direction are blocked or thwarted. This is when the message from the Universe is quite clear - your best interests lie in another direction, no matter how much you may want or feel the opposite.

    What is it you want to achieve or bring to your life? It may not be the goal that is wrong but how you are going about attracting it.



  • Hi Captain. I have just been reading all this over again. I think the part I find interesting is the 8-year cycle. You see, I am acutely aware of what has been going on the last 4 years and how it has swayed me from my course. I would say my goal this year is to get back on course. The issues surrounding the last 4 years have to do with my brother. I have been wondering lately if this is the area where something changes. I don't know if you can tell me that or not. Thank you.



  • Change depends on you and whether you change your attitude/approach to the issue.



  • I do not have an issue.



  • "The issues surrounding the last 4 years have to do with my brother. I have been wondering lately if this is the area where something changes."



  • They pertain to him. I have no approach to the matter. I have no legal right to step in and help him in any way. His issues have had a profound impact on my life. At this point the only choice I have is to lead my life. But he was a huge focus in the last 4 years. The next 4 are supposed to be very different. What I am wondering is if something changes with him.



  • Whether your brother does or does not change, you have to live your own life. Worry for him still ties you to him in a negative way. Whenever you think of him, send him positive vibes of love and joy instead.
