The ability to freely express ourselves is a defining aspect of human happiness. Do you want to feel the happiness and satisfaction we derive from expressing ourselves freely? We can help you—check out Blake’s story.

Blake was an extraordinarily good cars salesman. Everyone agreed, he was the Wayne Gretzky of automobile sales. Even when he was in high school and working part-time at his dad’s used car lot, Blake consistently out-sold his older, fulltime colleagues.

By the time he’d enrolled in university to study psychology, Blake had earned enough money to buy his own home and two of the late model Porches he was so talented at selling. During his first year of study he continued to sell cars at a luxury car dealership, which allowed him to marry the beautiful young daughter of the owner. No one doubted that he was going to be a huge success.

But when I met Blake shortly after his 26th birthday, he was a broken man—emotionally shattered and physically exhausted. He’d dropped out of school during his final year and went through a bitter divorce, in which he lost his house, cars and all his savings.

“I couldn’t do it anymore, Guylaine. Everyone thought I was Mr. Super Salesman because I knew a lot about cars. . . but that wasn’t true. I knew about people, that’s why I wanted to study psychology: I knew what people wanted, and I knew what they thought they wanted—so it was easy to sell them expensive cars, even when they clearly couldn’t afford it. But it made me miserable—I wanted to help people, not take advantage of them or put them into impossible debt. But I couldn’t tell them take the bus, or go buy an inexpensive used car from my dad. My boss, my wife, my friends and my colleagues relied on me to make money. I was never able to tell them that wasn’t what I wanted to do. So I walked away from it all. It cost me everything I had and I still can’t explain what went wrong. My life is over, I’m a loser.”

After taking Blake’s handprints, I understood why he had kept silent about his feelings for so many years. There was no indication whatsoever of a Mercury line in his hand, which is evident in his “before” handprint. He had solid head and heart lines, representing a keen mind and generous heart, but they were stifled and suffocated without the support of Mercury, or any other minor line.

In classical mythology, wing-footed Mercury was the messenger of the gods—his job was to make sure the immortals were able to readily communicate with each other. In the hand, the line of Mercury also represents communication—it reflects our ability to convey our needs, desires, dreams and ideas, and the happiness and satisfaction we derive from expressing ourselves freely.

A strong Mercury line tells us that we understand who we are and are comfortable within ourselves and in the world. Mercury enables us to explore the depths of our subconscious mind, develop our unique gifts and talents, and share them with the world.

Blake didn’t know who he was, although he was aware of who he wasn’t. He felt trapped, and had become so frustrated with his inability to express himself that, in an act of desperation, he had chosen to simply disappear from his life.

During a series of counseling sessions—during which I recommended daily meditation and breathing exercises—I convinced Blake that by changing his thoughts and outlook on life he could change the lines in his hand . . . he could leave his anguish and heartache behind, learn to express himself, and create a happy and fulfilling future.

After several months of coaching, I noticed the beginning of a Mercury line in Blake’s right palm—it signaled an awakening of his inner self, an awareness of who he was and what he was meant to do in life. Within a year Blake had developed a strong Mercury line, which is seen in his “after” handprint, indicating that he’d found the self-confidence and inner contentment needed to express himself effortlessly. He also developed a healthy Sun line, reflecting his new-found conviction, and a growing magnetism that quickly drew an amazing number of positive people and circumstances into his life.

Soon Blake returned to school and completed his psychology degree, he remarried, had two children, became a college lecturer and opened a private counselling practice with his new wife. Most importantly, he was happy.

The ability to freely express ourselves is a defining aspect of human happiness; without it, we are in danger of retreating into our own misery and develop a medley of physical and psychological illnesses. When we learn to communicate our dreams, ambitions and individuality, we can soar towards joy with the speed and ease of winged-Mercury.

It takes courage to love, and energy and strength to overcome the challenges, hardships and obstacles we so often encounter in our life and careers.

A few years ago Monika sashayed into my office two hours late for her appointment, dismissing her tardiness with a dramatic flick of her wrists.

“I’m running behind schedule today,” she said. “I overslept this morning; I couldn’t find anything to wear . . . and then my taxi didn’t show up on time. You know how it is. But none of that is important—what’s important is that I’m here now and I need help with my career—I need your help to become famous!”

She sat down across from me with an exhausted sigh: “I’m a good actress, Ghanshyam, but I want to be a star—a movie star. It’s so hard getting to the top, though. There is so much competition . . . and so many lines to memorize. Last week I stayed up all night trying to learn my lines, so of course I slept in the next morning. And because I arrived late at the studio, they gave my part to another actress. Do you think you can help me improve my memory so it’s easier for me to memorize my scripts?”

Monika’s lateness for our appointment left little time for an important first consultation. But even a quick glance at her handprints revealed the source of one of her major difficulties.

find-strength-live-courage-love-hands-print“You have a serious problem in your Mars Galaxy—it’s disrupting your entire hand, and I suspect it’s disrupting your entire life.”

I explained that the hand consists of 10 connected mounts which reflect our emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being. For example, the Mount of Luna, or Moon, represents our mind and imagination. The Mount of Saturn represents our logic and discipline. If our Saturn is depleted, or weak, our imagination can run out of control, getting us into all sorts of trouble.  In Monika’s case, her Mars—which consists of two mounts, Mars negative and Mars positive, forming the Mars Galaxy—was seriously depleted, especially her Mars Negative.

“The Mount of Mars derives its name from the planet Mars, the warrior planet,” I continued. “It represents our energy, our emotional and physical strength and our courage to deal with life. We can sometimes get by without a balanced Mars for several years by robbing energy from other mounts, but this is unhealthy and unproductive and, in the long run, unmaintainable. We will eventually find we are completely drained—physically, mentally and emotionally—and end up without a true purpose. We become like a motorboat without a motor, drifting down the river of life. Even if we know where we want to go, we will not have the energy or fortitude to get there.

“You have a healthy Mount of Venus,” I told her, “which shows your passion and desire to express yourself creatively . . . but you need the strong, reliable support of Mars energy if you hope to do that successfully. Honestly, right now your Mars Negative is so depleted that I am surprised you have the physical energy to clean your apartment, let alone the mental energy or focus to earn a living in a profession as demanding as acting. This may explain your difficulty learning lines and being on time for appointments and auditions. But the good news is you can strengthen your Mars, and improve your memory by . . .”

“Excuse me, Ghanshyam,” Monika cut me off. “It’s true I am late a lot, and a bit untidy and disorganized. But I don’t need to worry about being messy or earning a living. My parents help me with rent, and they send their maid to clean my apartment and cook once a week. That might sound strange, considering I’m 30 years old, but I think they are extra-protective of me because I was adopted. As a matter of fact, I’m in the process of re-connecting with my birth father right now. I’ve always dreamed of having my real dad in my life.”

I wasn’t surprised that Monika had ready excuses to explain away her bad habits—those with a depleted Mars often draw upon (and diminish) their Saturn logic to justify their behavior. But I was concerned by everything else she’d disclosed.

“Monika, as I was about to say before—we can strengthen your Mars Galaxy by giving you small tasks to complete each day—arriving for appointments on time, cleaning up after yourself, cooking your own meals. Accomplishing small, daily goals will build up the stamina and discipline needed to take on greater tasks—like memorizing movie scripts. Regular exercise, proper rest and meditation will also help you. But having someone else pay your rent, cook for you and clean up your mess will undermine these efforts.

“And as for re-connecting with your birth-father . . . the universe is giving you this opportunity to develop a healthy and balanced Mars Galaxy. Any loving or intense personal relationship requires emotional strength and the courage of commitment—qualities you’ll need to develop if you want this new relationship with your dad to be both happy and long-lasting.”

Monika looked dubious, but said she would consider my advice. We arranged a follow up consultation for the next month, but she failed to show up. A few weeks later she phoned to reschedule, saying she’d been so distracted trying to get to auditions that our consultation had slipped her mind.

“But I did meet up with my birth father,” she added.

“Oh really, how did it go?” I asked

“It’s been a disaster, Ghanshyam. “He’s a wonderful man and he explained why he and my birth mother gave me up for adoption—they were only 15 when they had me. But now he wants to call me once a week to check on me and take me out for dinner once a month—it’s too much attention for me to handle; it takes up too much of my time and is too much effort. I told him it’s best if we don’t see each other again.”

Monika missed her re-scheduled appointment as well, and I never heard from her again. I regret that she didn’t take my advice on strengthening her Mars Galaxy before reconnecting with her dad. She missed out on the opportunity to form a loving bond with someone important to her.

It takes courage to love, and energy and strength to overcome the challenges, hardships and obstacles we so often encounter in our life and careers. These qualities emanate from our Mars Galaxy, so it’s in our best interest to make sure our Mars is healthy and balanced.

Leanna had everything to live for and, at 55 years old, felt that her life was just beginning. She’d successfully raised four kids as a single mom, earned a psychology degree at night while working fulltime, and was in a loving relationship with a wonderful man. In a few week’s time she planned to retire from her government job and launch a new career as a psychologist—she’d never been happier.

Then tragedy struck: During a routine doctor’s appointment she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She was distraught and didn’t know where to turn. A relative of hers gave her my number and she called requesting an emergency appointment.

Leanna walked into my office in tears, shaking her head in bewilderment.

“I don’t understand what went wrong—I’ve never smoked, I eat healthy food, exercise regularly and there’s no history of cancer in my family,” she said. “Why did this happen? What can I do?”

I looked at her handprints and was struck by the long and beautifully-rounded life line in her dominant hand—the hand we write with that reflects our conscious self, present circumstances and outlook on life. This perfectly shaped line indicated that Leanna was anticipating, and looking forward to a long, full and happy life.

leanna-power-perils-subconscious-mind-print

But the life line in her non-dominant hand—reflecting our subconscious self, our past, our buried desires, emotions and regrets—was short, fragile and tasseled at the termination of the line, denoting a major loss of motivation and a lack of vision for the future.

In Vedic Palmistry the study of both hands gives us a complete picture of the state of our subconscious and conscious mind—the yin and yang, the female and male, or the “feeling” and “reasoning” aspects of our being. The contrast between Leanna’s two life lines made me suspect someone or something had deeply impacted her in the past. This had created deep-rooted, negative feelings that she had not dealt with, had subconsciously attached herself to, and had been unwittingly nourishing for many years.

When I asked Leanna about this, she explained that 30 years earlier her then-husband—whom she’d loved and trusted—left her for one of her best friends. The betrayal devastated Leanna; it made her bitter and for a period of time even zapped her will to live. But for the sake of her children she eventually chose to ignore her pain, anger and hurt feelings and get on with her life.

I saw this reflected in the short life line of Leanna’s non-dominant hand—instead of dealing with the pain and resentment of that betrayal three decades ago, she had pushed her negative feelings “into storage” in her subconscious mind, where they took root.

The non-dominant hand is like the hidden root system of a plant, while the dominant hand can be compared to the visible stem, leaves, and flowers. Our subconscious roots reflect our deepest beliefs and feelings—and the subconscious eventually pushes those rooted-emotions and thoughts to the surface of our existence.  If we have planted the bitter seeds of a thorn bush in our past, we cannot expect to enjoy the taste of a delicious apple in our present or future—even if we desperately want that apple; we reap what we sow.

Metaphysicist Neville Goddard writes about this in his book, Feeling Is the Secret: “The subconscious receives ideas through our feelings and gives them form. If you dwell on difficulties, barriers or delay, the subconscious by its very non-selective nature, accepts the feeling of difficulties and obstacles as you request and proceeds to produce them in your outer world.”

It was clear to me that Leanna had been so powerfully impacted by her husband’s betrayal that she had subconsciously lost her inspiration to live a long and happy life—despite the fact that she consciously desired to do just that.

I explained this to Leanna, emphasizing the perils of subconsciously harboring negative feelings and emotions. “Life is precious and we can’t afford to let anything rob us of our motivation,” I said. “As the great sage Sri Yukteswar wrote, `wrath springs from thwarted desire’. It is extremely difficult for any of us to move forward if our hope and belief are entangled in the despair of our past. If we hold onto grief, hurt, resentment or disappointment we only end up hurting ourselves. We must let go completely of past wounds and focus on creating joy within ourselves and in the lives of those around us.”

I used the example of Nelson Mandela who, after serving 27 years in jail, pursued a path of forgiveness to move beyond the anger and atrocities he and so many others experienced during apartheid. Mandela said, “I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind I’d still be in prison.” He exemplified this by inviting his former prison guard to his inauguration as president.

Is there hope for Leanna as she fights a fatal disease? A resounding yes! This is a pivotal and crucial time in her life during which she can reprogram her mind and create new grooves in her brain that can change her present reality. Neuroscientists were once convinced that our thought patterns were fixed and immutable. However, technological advancements in magnetic-brain imaging have proven that we are capable of re-wiring our brain throughout our lifetime—from the moment we are born to the moment we draw our final breath. But, as Neville Goddard tells us, to successfully create a new, positive reality, our thoughts must be soundly supported by deep, positive feelings. One of the surest ways to achieve this is through meditation, positive affirmations and focused, peaceful self-reflection—all of which Leanna is faithfully practicing.

As Leanna reinforces her subconscious with positive thoughts and feelings, she will see an extension of the life line in her non-dominant hand, which will match up with her resolve to live a happy life that is expressed in the beautiful life line of her dominant hand. As she creates new, positive grooves in the thinking patterns of her brain, the negative grooves in her non-dominant hand will disappear.

In time, and with perspective, Leanna will even be grateful for her past difficulties and realize that the painful betrayal she experienced presented her with the opportunity to create wonderful changes in her life—a realization already reflected in the wisdom signs on her mount of Jupiter—in her Ring of Solomon and in her Star and Square. In the end, the suffering she endured helped her develop a huge and generous heart, enabled her to attract an even greater love into her life and gave her a new passion for self-awareness. Despite her battle with cancer, Leanna is filled with gratitude; she wants her story to be shared so that others can learn from her experience and she is looking toward the future with hope.

Gerald was a concert pianist; Marge didn’t play an instrument but was a huge fan of classical piano music. One evening, Marge attended a concert in which Gerald played a solo piece; she was so moved by his music that she was determined to meet him. When they were introduced backstage they felt as if they had known each other all their lives—the chemistry was instantaneous, undeniable and profound. It was love at first sight.

They began a passionate romance and became inseparable companions. And although their ardor never cooled, after several months of dating there was definitely trouble in paradise. Gerald felt smothered by Marge’s possessiveness, sudden outbursts of anger, and forceful, demanding nature. That’s when they came to see me for couples’ counselling.

union-line-making-beautiful-music-together-printThe first thing I did was check their union lines (sometimes referred to as the marriage line) and noted that they both had just one, indicating they were seeking one true and lasting love-match. Their partnership was supported by the age-placement of their lines—Marge was 32 and Gerald was 38 when they met and their union lines perfectly corresponded with that time frame. And the fact that both of their union lines extended to the back of their hands suggested they may have known each other in a previous life and had a karmic relationship, accounting for their sudden, mutual attraction and instant sense recognition and familiarity. All this pointed toward a very good match.

The trouble was with Marge’s downward-turning union line, referred to as mangli, which told me the effects of traumatic events or turbulent life changes were spilling into her current relationship. As it turned out, she was dealing with the recent death of her mother, the breakup of her previous long-term romantic relationship and a work-transfer to a new city—the combination of which had made her angry, anxious, insecure and resistant to change. Unfortunately, Gerald was often the focus of these negative emotions.

I explained to Marge that she needed to let go of her anger and channel her intense emotions into physical exercise as well intellectual and spiritual pursuits, otherwise she would poison her relationship and make herself sick.

Marge took my advice. We scheduled regular appointments to get to the root of her anger and she had frequent ayurvedic massages to release her tension and faithfully practiced yoga and meditation. And she began studying piano under Gerald’s tutelage.

Over the course of two years Marge completely changed her outlook on life. She became more accepting and open to change and developed an easygoing, sunny disposition. Her union line gradually straightened out, reflecting these internal changes. Her relationship with Gerald improved immensely—they married a year later and have been making beautiful music together now for two decades.

Hugh was a 30-year-old palmistry student with movie-star good looks and piercing blue eyes that lit up when he laughed. He was searching for enlightenment, but that changed after his father died. He inherited a multi-million-dollar business but had no interest in working anymore. He wanted to be a playboy; he sold the company, broke up with his girlfriend and set out to travel the world.

Six months later Hugh returned for a consultation. He was laughing and his blue eyes shone brightly as he showed me his hand. I smiled too, until I saw the number of union (marriage) lines on his mount of Mercury. The Mercury mount is known as the domain of Buddha—it reflects our ability to find inner peace and contentment and not be distracted by the many persuasions of the material world. Hugh had so many broken and crisscrossing union lines that I knew he’d found very little inner peace and was extremely attached to material and physical pleasure.

hughs-union-lines-enough-never-enough-print

Ideally, our mount of Mercury has a long, single union line that is straight, deep, and free of interference—a formation that reveals a yearning for a loving and committed relationship. It is not unusual to see several union lines, reflecting a number of relationships over the course of a lifetime. But I needed a magnifying glass to count all of Hugh’s jagged, short-lived and blocked lines of union. Hugh had been a good palmistry student and knew why I looked worried.

“I know what you’re thinking Ghanshyam—yes, I’ve had plenty of girls, and I even got dumped by my latest . . . so what? I’ve got a girl in every port,” he laughed. “The world’s an ice cream parlor with a thousand flavors. Why not sample them all?”

“But Hugh, this hedonistic attitude isn’t healthy,” I said. “You have great potential to love and be loved, but you’re squandering it by allowing yourself to be ruled by desire. Your appetite is a bottomless pit that can never be filled—you’ll never have enough to satisfy your hunger. If you spend your life searching for happiness by buying things and having flings you’ll miss out on what’s real, you’ll never be happy.”

“Ghanshyam, I’m young and rich—I can buy happiness.”

Three years passed before I saw Hugh again. This time his eyes were dull and he looked miserable. His Mercury mount was depleted and crammed with chaotic union lines.

“You were right about never feeling satisfied, Ghanshyam,” he said. “How can I find peace and happiness?”

“Begin with daily meditation,” I suggested. “Seek happiness within—develop a spiritual relationship, it is the only relationship that offers lasting peace and joy.”

I don’t know if Hugh took my advice—he never came back. But I know this: Palmistry reveals both our negative proclivities and our positive potential—it is up to us to decide what to do with the information the palm of our hand has to offer.

Marie-Christine first came to see me when she was 18 years old and in her first year of college. She was bright, pretty and charming, but unhappy.

“I don’t know what to do with my life,” she told me as I studied her handprints. “One day I want to be a doctor, the next day I want to be a scuba instructor, the day after that I want to be a painter or maybe work with children . . . or quit school and travel the world. There’s so much I want to do in life, but I’m getting nowhere. I can’t even commit to one boyfriend—I keep dating guys who are totally wrong for me because they’re fun, then I stay up all night and miss morning classes. I want to have a career and start a family one day, but it seems hopeless. I’m really lost—can you help me?”

“I’m here to help,” I smiled. “Let’s take a look at your handprints and see what’s going on with you.”

I wasn’t surprised to find two head lines in Marie-Christine’s palm, which is not uncommon in multi-talented individuals. A double head line signals a duality of mind in an individual who is gifted in so many areas that they become too restless or bored too easily to pursue just one. Marie-Christine was being pulled in many directions and reluctant to say no to any experience for fear of missing out on all life had to offer. But her inability to settle on a single career path or romantic partner was preventing her from reaching her full potential, which was reflected in her broken Saturn (or destiny) line. And her indecisiveness was making her miserable.

“We have to mend your destiny line and forge your two head lines into one,” I told her. “I suggest you stop dating for at least a year and focus completely on your studies. Find the subject you are most passionate about and pursue it with all your heart and mind. Ask your family to help you, it is important for you to have a supportive environment.”

Marie-Christine told me that her parents were divorced and she was essentially on her own—both financially and emotionally. She asked me to be her coach and I happily agreed.

At first it wasn’t easy for her to make choices and stick by them, but she persevered and it paid off. She enrolled in child psychology and proudly showed me her straight-A progress report every month—and every month her head and destiny lines showed signs of improvement.

Last year—15 years after we first met—Marie-Christine returned to my office. This time her prints revealed a strong and solitary head line and a healthy, unbroken destiny line; she was running her own successful clinic helping troubled youth, was in a loving relationship and the mother of two young children of her own. She had defeated the duality in her palm and was singularly happy.

Christina was at her wits end when she called me.

Her husband suffered a fatal heart attack several months earlier and she’d moved from Chicago to Montreal to be with family. But her 13-year-old son Benjamin was not adjusting well to the sudden changes. Devastated by his father’s death and traumatized by the move, he was experiencing panic attacks, had no friends or interests, and was doing very poorly at school, where his bad behaviour landed him in detention every afternoon. While on the phone with Christina, I could hear Benjamin slamming doors and shouting: “I hate my school, I hate my teachers, I hate French . . . and I hate you for making me come here!”

“I’m worried sick about Benji,” Christina said. “We’ve been in family therapy for months, we’ve visited three child psychologists and consulted a psychiatrist—nothing has helped. My sister recommended you; I don’t really believe in palmistry, but you’re my last hope.”

Benjamin was sullen and despondent when he arrived at my office. He slumped into his chair, balled his hands into fists and stared at the floor. His despair was heartbreakingly obvious. His handprints revealed that his pain and anger were blocking him from progressing in life—he was trapped in his grief. He had prominent islands of interference on the life line of his left hand, reflecting his growing isolation, loneliness and despair. I decided to reach out to him through astrology.

“Look at these, Benjamin, they’re the astrological birth charts for you and your father,” I said. His eyes widened as I pointed to the similarities in the charts. “You have the same Virgo ascendant and very similar planetary placements, which makes you and your dad quite a bit alike.”

“Really?” he asked, showing interest.

“Really! And you both have Major Rahu periods beginning at age 13.” I explained that, in simple terms, a Major Rahu is an 18-year period that can bring a lot of change and present us with tough challenges to overcome and hard lessons to learn . . . and sometimes force us to travel to different countries and learn foreign languages. I told him that the way we respond to these challenges can shape our future and determine what kind of person we become. “

“That’s exactly what happened to my father, Benjamin said. He had to move from Italy to America when he was 13, leave all his friends behind, start over at a new school and learn another language.”

“Kind of like you’re doing, isn’t it? I asked. Tell me Benjamin, how did your Dad handle those big changes?”

“Grandma told me it was tough for Dad at first, but he learned English and studied so hard he got a scholarship. Then he started his own company and hired 200 people—and had tons of friends! Everybody loved my Dad. I guess that’s what I’ve got to do, too, isn’t it?”

“It sounds like a very good idea,” I said, giving him a small astrology book and the two birth charts to take home.

I saw Benjamin regularly over the next several months and he was always eager to see how the lines in his hands were changing and learn about the planets. When he showed up with his mom a year later to take his “After Handprints”, his entire demeanor had changed. He was walking tall, his eyes were bright, his hands were relaxed and he was smiling. His After handprints reflected his dramatic transformation—the islands of interference had completely disappeared from his life line.

“I don’t know what you said to him, Guylaine—but you inspired him—you opened his heart. His grades are terrific, he’s almost fluent in French, he’s joined the school hockey team and astronomy club—and he’s popular! His new friends are constantly hanging out at our house. I don’t have to worry about him anymore, he’s happy.”

Michael’s life was a mess. At 30, he was a chain smoking high school dropout in a dead-end job, 70-pounds overweight, crippled by self-loathing and low-self esteem and using drugs and alcohol to numb his pain.

“Michael, why have you come to see me?” I asked, troubled by his heavy aura of despair.

“I’ve got nothing in my life . . . look at me, I’m a fat loser—I hate myself, life isn’t worth living.”

“Michael, every life has worth; it’s how we live that makes our life worthwhile.”

case-files-flipping-switch-printMichael’s handprints reflected his many troubles—but great potential as well. A beautiful magnetic cross on his mount of Jupiter indicated a deeply sensitive nature, a great potential for spirituality, a yearning to find a purpose in life and a strong desire for a loving relationship. Unfortunately, he was cut off from his Jupiter cross by a downward curving heart line, which was blocking him from loving others, loving himself and from loving life. His descending heart line told me he’d switched himself off emotionally and spiritually. Making matters worse, the downward heart line was disrupting his quadrangle, the space between the heart and head lines known as “the landing strip of the angels” that is a psychic energy zone directly linked to our chakras. When the quadrangle is balanced, our heart is open to the wisdom of spiritual teachers, learning important life lessons, interpreting visionary dreams and receiving heavenly blessings. Michael’s quadrangle was out of balance. His heart line was also marked with many lines of interference.

“These interference lines indicate emotional trauma at an early age, what can you tell me about that?” Michael confided that his father had been a demanding, authoritarian alcoholic who belittled him throughout his childhood. His father’s abusiveness led to his parents divorcing when he was barely into his teens. Michael hated his dad, blaming him for denying him love as a child and for the way his own life had turned out.

“Michael, you cannot blame your father for life . . . it was your choice to drop out of school and poison your body with toxins. Filling your heart with hatred stops you from loving anyone else—not even yourself. You have switched off your heart and can’t access the many wonderful things I see in your hand.”

I gave Michael several yoga and breathing exercises to practice, encouraging him to meditate every day. I also suggested he call his father.

“Be a caring son—let go of bitterness, judgement and resentment. Talk to him with unconditional love.”

Happily, Michael took my advice; a year later I barely recognized him. His eyes were bright and focused, he’d lost more than 50 pounds, had quit smoking, drinking and drugs and had enrolled in night school to “find his purpose”. His ongoing conversations with his dad had inspired his father to quit drinking and his parents were talking again after years of estrangement.

Michael’s interference lines were disappearing and his heart line was beginning to curve upward toward his Jupiter cross, mending his quadrangle. He had flipped the switch and opened his heart.

There was an urgent message on the office answering machine the morning of July 25th.

“Guylaine, it’s Marc. I am having the day from hell—I am coming to see you, it’s an emergency!”

Marc, a long-time client who is usually sweet-tempered and calm, was soon banging on my door.

“What’s going on with you Marc?” I asked.

“It started yesterday, Guylaine. I’d been edgy all afternoon and when my wife and I went out to dinner with friends I inexplicitly ordered two bottles of wine for myself and a second meal. I ate and drank until I felt sick, then I insulted the waiter and was rude to my wife and friends for no reason at all. I woke up this morning feeling anxious and emotionally drained—I snapped at my wife again, cut off other motorists while driving to work and almost quit my job just because my boss didn’t say “good morning” to me. Why I’m behaving like a crazy man?”

“Don’t worry Marc, you’re not crazy,” I said. “Mercury is in the 29th degree of Cancer and its taking a toll on all of us in different ways. This transit’s intense nervous energy can make us lash out illogically over trivial things and push us to overindulge and neglect our health. Read the article The Storm Before the Calm:  Monday’s 29th Degree of Mercury in Cancer and you’ll understand what’s happening to you. And don’t worry, Mercury enters Leo tomorrow and will bring a lot of positive, creative energy with it. It will be a great time for you to find inspiration and make a fresh start . . . and to apologize to your wife.”

Marc called a few days later and said he was quitting drinking, beginning a fitness routine and making it a point to be nicer to everyone—especially his wife.

“I’m taking advantage of Mercury in Leo. Thanks for telling me about the article about the 29th degree, Guylaine—it was an eye-opener!”

We should all heed the maxim: As above, so below. What happens in our stars echoes in our lives; it’s wise to know what’s going on in the Cosmos so we aren’t caught by surprise.

Marcus was a talented young animator from a small Canadian town who, despite his inherent shyness, applied for a job at a major Hollywood film studio. While riding the bus to the interview, a female passenger became trapped in the vehicle’s rear doors when they shut on her foot. Marcus felt her pain as acutely as if it were his own; he rushed to help the woman but he was overwhelmed with emotion and fainted before reaching her. When he opened his eyes he was laying next to her on the street as paramedics treated both of them. Marcus missed the interview and didn’t get the job. The next day he booked a consultation with me.

“Ghanshyam, I’ve been like this all my life,” he said, holding his trembling hand out for me to study. “Ever since I was a kid, people’s emotions have washed over me like a tidal wave—I feel like I’m constantly drowning. I’m 28 and have never kissed a girl. I can’t even show up for a job interview without passing out. I have my art, but I do that in my room, alone. Please help me—this loneliness is killing me.”

Examining his hand, I saw that Marcus had a fragmented Girdle of Venus, which I suspected was a major contributor to his troubles.

marcus-broken-girdle-venus-broken-dreamsThe Girdle of Venus has been described as a divine smile permanently stamped on our hearts as an inspiration to others. Ideally, it forms a gentle arc in the upper region of the palm linking Jupiter, Saturn, Sun and Mercury, the four mounts housing our highest forms of energy. The Girdle’s close proximity to the heart line reflects a deep capacity for empathy and an intimate connection with the spiritual realm. It also reveals a powerful creative energy that compels us to express the beauty and love within our soul. Many artists, humanitarians and those devoted to serving God possess a Girdle of Venus.

Unfortunately, a perfectly formed Girdle of Venus is rare; it is much more common to find a fragmented Girdle, like Marcus’s. A broken Girdle of Venus reflects pent-up passion and blocked creativity. In Marcus’s case, the broken Girdle of Venus, exacerbated by an underdeveloped Mars, denoting a depletion of energy, can result in feelings of insecurity, over-sensitivity, moodiness, frustration and erratic or self-destructive behaviour.

Marcus’s emotional sensitivity was crippling him socially and professionally; he was in danger of losing his ability to function in society, as his ill-fated bus ride painfully illustrated. I suggested he begin a daily meditation routine to center his energy, and taught him breathing exercises to keep his emotions in check. I also encouraged him to be less self-absorbed by being of service in his community, and to surround himself with caring people who would support his efforts to interact in the world in a helpful and healthy manner.

Marcus made steady improvement and, over the course of a year, his Girdle began to mend. Sadly, we fell out of touch when he moved to another town. I pray that wherever he is today, Marcus has a smiling Girdle of Venus in his palm, and a smile of happiness on his face.
