Welcome! Thank you for visiting.
Powell's Healing Arts is the culmination of a lifetime's journey of
metaphysical training and education. George uses Astrology,
Hypnotherapy and Reiki to address his client's unique needs. One or a
combination of these healing arts are utilized to assist his clients.
On a personal note, thank you all for the well wishes as I recuperate from recent surgery. Some of you may not be aware that I have Crohn's Disease and that an emergency resection was required on Jan. 30th to relieve a blockage caused by stenosis (narrowing) of the small intestine. I'm feeling much better now and have started seeing clients again.
New Moon in Pisces (chart below) is on March 1st. This is one of the most positive New Moon's we've had in awhile. Pisces, the sign of imagination, intuition, dreams and creativity. With the Sun, Moon, Neptune, and Chiron (all in Pisces) trine Jupiter and the North Node trining Neptune as well, this is a great opportunity to start or renew spiritual endeavors such as meditation, practicing unconditional love and healing at a deeper level . You can smoothly tune into your higher self, understand greater realities and tap into the rapidly expanding global consciousness that is the driving force for positive change the world, This would be a wonderful time to read a spiritual book; I highly recommend: "The Disappearance of the Universe" by Gary Renard. We still have Jupiter creating a T-square with the powerful Uranus- Pluto square. The key to working with this configuration is being proactive and going after the changes you would like the see in your life and the world. This combination is also representative of the massive protests and demonstrations to reform outdated government and corporate practices that only serve the 1% that have been going on in recent months and will likely peak over the next several months.
Mercury's retrograde period officially ends on February 28th, but wait an additional week or so to let the energies get back to normal before doing such things as signing important contracts, making big purchases and getting your car worked on. Your everyday routines should start to run smoother as obstacles melt away like snow from the recent storms.
Mars in Libra goes retrograde from March 1st until May 19th - When Mars goes retrograde, whoever starts the war, loses the war. This is not the time to aggressively starts things up, whether it's a big project or picking a fight. If you do, it's likely that disruptions, irritations and other obstacles will cause you to run out of steam. Better to carefully contemplate and adjust your plans, maybe several times before taking action after this period ends. In the sign Libra, it would be prudent to go slow regarding relationships decisions, whether romantic or business in nature, and regarding legal matters.
Saturn in Scorpio goes retrograde on March 2nd until July 20th. Saturn goes retrograde 4-5 months each year. This is an opportunity to go over the past year's successes and failures and think about what needs changing and come up with new or tweaked goals and action plans. In Scorpio, this may be related to business matters, but also deep psychological work to uncover how we get in our own way by going off into extreme directions. Insights into are own psyche that make us more content and productive are available if we step back and reflect during this period. According to Raymond Merriman, an astrologer and stock market analyst (some analysts are astrologers), the market may be due for major downward correction because of the Jupiter-Uranus waxing square becoming exact on Feb 26th, and this combined with Mars and Saturn going retrograde while Mercury and Jupiter (Mar 6th) turn direct. That's a lot of astronomical activity in a short period of time. We'll see how that goes very soon.
US and World - Last month we mentioned that transiting Pluto makes its first of five opposition to the US's natal Sun on Mar 14th. This is a classic power struggle aspect that will be influencing the nation for a couple of years. As mentioned before, we're seeing other countries questioning our governments aggressive military stance in the Middle East, the handling of whistleblowers and they are starting to trade in other currencies or metals as they question whether the Dollar should still be the world's reserve currency. Other nations are rightfully concerned about our massive debt and quantitative easing policy worsening the ongoing worldwide economic crises. Our overall heavy-handedness and bullying of sovereign nations has certainly hurt the US's reputation and status around the world since 2002 when "W" barged us into Iraq and later Afghanistan. The US still seems obsessed with getting involved in another war with either Syria, Iran or North Korea to stimulate the economy and keep the mega corporations and banks happy. The Cardinal Cross configuration returns in April and is combined with two Eclipses; these powerful influences could be the triggers that push international concerns over austerity and corruption over the edge. We will start seeing the effects of the Cross and eclipses in March. Actions (Mars) for the benefit of others (Libra) taken in the near future are likely to be sudden and revolutionary (Uranus in Aries) which could lead to huge (Jupiter) changes in transforming (Pluto) governments and economic systems (Capricorn).It is hard to say exactly what will transpire, More unusual weather, particularly involving flooding, earthquakes and volcanoes will continue are likely into the summer. The underlying theme for 2014 is change and everyone is compelled to take action in the effected houses of their individual chart. More about this next month.
“There is no means of avoiding a final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”

is a great tool for self-awareness. Through insights accessed from the
birth chart, George aims to maximize the client’s innate talents, make
the most of potential opportunities and help them successfully navigate
life’s challenges. By understanding ourselves, we can move toward
wholeness, that is, integration of our whole being. We all have free
will, and our lives are strongly affected by the choices we make. On
the other hand, some events are seemingly fated, or karmic in nature,
as they are necessary for our personal growth. more
Hypnosis is an amplified state of mind similar to being in a meditative
state or deep relaxation. It is a natural state of focused
concentration in which the client is very aware of his surrounding,
similar to driving your car in familiar areas or concentrating on a
television show. Hypnosis involves being relaxed enough to get into the
alpha or theta brain wave state and allowing your conscious mind to
step back and let the subconscious mind come forward. The subconscious
mind can hold certain beliefs and habit patterns that we have learned
in life. more
Reiki is a technique of complementary or alternative medicine,
rediscovered by Japanese educator Dr. Mikao Usui sometime prior to
1922. It is believed that this hands-on healing method may have been
originally developed by Tibetan Buddhists 2500 years ago but was lost
to mankind until Usui’s rediscovery. The word Reiki stems from the
Japanese “rei” (meaning universe, spirit, soul or the higher
intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe)
and ki (energy/life energy, comparable to chi, qi or prana). Ki is the
non-physical energy that animates and flows through all living things.
Reiki is commonly referred to as “Universal Life Force Energy”. more
feel that the essence of spiritual practice is your attitude toward
others. When you have a pure, sincere motivation, then you have right
attitude toward others based on kindness, compassion, love and respect. ~14th Dalai Lama
