This comprehensive astrological forecast for 2014 was written by my good friend Laurie Baum, MSW, a psychological astrologer and psychotherapist in practice in Encinitas, California. As you can see from her video above and her article below, Laurie integrates the wisdom of natural patterns in the heavens with spirituality and psychological insights.

Personally, I never had much of an appreciation for astrology and just didn’t care enough about the subject to investigate it further. Then two things happened.
First, I happened to read a chapter in a life-changing book that burned off the fog of ignorance and answered every question I had about astrology. It was written with clarity, precision, wit and wisdom, and I felt the subject come brilliantly alive for me as I read it. Click here to read that excerpt on astrology.
Second, I had an hour-long astrological reading with Laurie Baum. We discussed every area I could think of: health, relationships, finances, lessons in need of learning, major life changes to come. Not only did she nail everything—and I mean everything—about me, but she provided very helpful insights that will help me navigate the years ahead with more confidence and authority. It was uncanny: everything she told me aligned perfectly with what my intuition had long been telling me; but she also went far beyond that point and gave me much to think about. This reading with Laurie gave me a much deeper appreciation of the value of astrology and a more profound respect for its power. Thank you, Laurie!
NOTE: After this post appeared, Alan, a very spiritually minded friend of mine, e-mailed me: “Given your glowing recommendations I just sent Laurie an email requesting a reading.” Three days later, Alan sent me this note: “I had a wonderful astrology reading experience with Laurie. She was able to deliver insightful information in a comprehensive and compassionate manner. I found it timely and useful on many levels so I thank you for introducing me to her.”

Laurie also offers counseling appointments by phone. She will answer your questions about major life decisions and talk with you about the reasons you have incarnated, the lessons you are here to learn, where you are on the wheel of karma, and the psychological developmental cycles you have been through and are going through. She will look at current influences on your health, finances, relationships, career, and any relocation plans that may be necessary. She also will look ahead with you at the next seven years of your life. A reading with Laurie can help you take the next step in your life. Sessions, which are available via landline phone or Skype (audio or video), are digitally recorded.
2014 ASTROLOGICAL FORECAST
by LAURIE BAUM
The Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, arrives on Saturday, December 21. The Winter Solstice is a time to celebrate the return of the light as the days will start to be longer after the solstice arrives.
The new year of 2014 will present many opportunities for profound growth. Karmic Saturn will spend most of 2014 in the depth-seeking water sign of Scorpio. And depth-seeking Pluto will be in the Saturn-ruled earth sign of Capricorn throughout the year, intensifying the trend toward cleansing, purification, and self-discovery. You may will feel an urge to avoid complex or tangled issues under this highly intense influence; but circumstances may push you to discover previously hidden information and feelings so that they may be untangled and healed. This process of unearthing, purifying, and rectifying is going on across the planet—notice all the drilling, construction, reconstruction, and destruction of man-made structures and natural resources. It can be a bit messy on the physical level, but it is a mirror of what is going on in our psyches. This is a time of clearing away the old to make room for the new.
The movement of karmic Saturn from Scorpio to Sagittarius on December 23, 2014, will give you the greatest power when you seek spiritual solutions. Saturn was last in Sagittarius from late 1985 to late 1988, so you will be revisiting and resolving Read the rest of this entry »
