Refocus your efforts during this three-week period on a project that you’ve already started, such as your exercise program, competitive athletics or some other major physical task that still needs work, because your energy is running high and you’ve got extra stores of stamina that are coming seemingly out of nowhere. Not only are you physically primed now, you’re also very much in touch with your opinions and values, and you’re willing to talk about them in an open and animated way that won’t offend anyone — but also a way that will clearly represent who you are and what you stand for. Your assertion energies are up, too, and you have the ability to demonstrate leadership and make instant executive decisions, so if there is a business relationship you’ve wanted to further or a project you’ve been dreaming of helming, now’s the time to step up to the plate. Now’s your time to make things happen, so don’t stay home, vegging in front of the TV. Your social life could pick up now too; you’re projecting positive energy and people will probably flock to you like moths to a flame. So don’t squander the energy and drive you feel during these three weeks!
Oh, you’re a live wire this week. Funny, pointed, staggeringly accurate. You say it like you see it, without mincing words, which keeps them snickering behind their hands and repeating your jokes by the water cooler. Fortunately you’re aware enough to avoid hurting anyone, at least not too badly. You can avoid it altogether by making jokes at your own expense, because everyone can appreciate the skill that takes. Keep the humor on you, but turn your roving mind to other subjects. You’re curious enough to learn a lot, especially by following one lead after another, which can take you places you’d never expect and can help you connect things that on the surface don’t seem at all connected. Let your mind wander far and near this week; you may be surprised where you end up. Flashes of inspiration are not unusual, or the sudden expansion of certain ideas and principles you’re familiar with. Now is a good time to break through the boundaries of your mind and the confines of ‘normal’ thinking.
Your imaginative side is highly stimulated this week, and you’re motivated toward creative writing, recording your dreams and visions and articulating your spiritual beliefs. Invite yourself to meander through the meadows of your mind while this influence is strong. You’re likely to feel tender and compassionate, even sentimental. Don’t hesitate to express these feelings to those around you; you’ll be able to explain yourself in a way that others understand, and which arouses their own empathy. You may feel slightly more sensitive than usual to odors, music or other aspects of your immediate environment, and may have to take steps to alleviate your discomfort: Open (or close!) the window, turn down the stereo, take down that loud poster that’s hurting your eyes. Be gentle with yourself, drink plenty of water and don’t press yourself to stick to any one task for very long. This is not the best influence for concentration or hard work. Instead, let creativity flow without concern for the outcome. Spiritual practices, reading or writing poetry or stories, or watching movies are all worthwhile activities now — anything that gets you into the realm of fantasy and imagination.
This transit roughly coincides with the Saturn Return periods in your life, occurring in your late twenties and again in your mid-fifties. This influence helps you to make the necessary changes needed to break free of any bonds or obligations that have been holding you back in your life. All of a sudden, you’re free to move forward with your own agenda. You’re able to make changes with a minimum of disruption or upheaval. A new job, a new relationship, a new place to live your life — whatever it is, the changes will flow smoothly and naturally from one stage to the next. Your urge at this time is to make changes that will enable you to be perfectly yourself, without direction from others. You want to live your life more fully than ever before, as an authentic individual — you no longer want to be described by the groups you belong to or the relationships you’re engaged in. You want to define yourself, and solely by your own terms. This is the time to strike out on your own. Anyone or anything you bring with you is by your own choice, not out of a sense of obligation or loyalty. Therefore, the changes you make now will encourage your growth as an individual.

Very likely you’re feeling quite mentally alert this week, curious and able to perceive things with humor and perspective. You ask yourself and others stimulating questions that inspire all of you to think bigger, grander, outside the box. The results of this think tank may surprise all of you, and will certainly expand everyone’s perceptions and ideas, which is the ultimate purpose of this energy. Now is an excellent time to promote anything — yourself, your projects, your professional endeavors, the groups you belong to. You have a knack for knowing what to say and when to say it for maximum effect, getting others’ attention and motivating them to sign on with you. Even legal agreements and contracts are win-win situations now, and will work out positively for all parties involved. This is a good time to travel or to plan a trip for the future. Even short journeys just outside your usual environment can have big impact, so be on the lookout for day-trip opportunities, and don’t pass up the chance to take one. Enjoy this period of mental stimulation.
Fortunately you’re aware enough to avoid hurting anyone, at least not too badly. You can avoid it altogether by making jokes at your own expense, because everyone can appreciate the skill that takes. Keep the humor on you, but turn your roving mind to other subjects. You’re curious enough to learn a lot, especially by following one lead after another, which can take you places you’d never expect and can help you connect things that on the surface don’t seem at all connected.

Flashes of inspiration are not unusual, or the sudden expansion of certain ideas and principles you’re familiar with. Now is a good time to break through the boundaries of your mind and the confines of ‘normal’ thinking.
Get together with friends for dinner, or go on a shopping spree — just don’t max out your credit card! You’re feeling self-indulgent now, but you do still have your wits about you regarding finances, and that’s a good thing. You don’t mind spending on items of quality, and you might find some great bargains. Regarding social or business contacts, don’t confine yourself to people you already know. This period presents the perfect vibe for connecting with someone new, whether it’s a new client at work or someone attractive and very promising out on the town. Whoever you take out to wine and dine, you’ll impress them with your indulgent attitude — ‘Only the best for my friends’ could be your motto now — but more than that, you’ll just make them feel great, and want to return the favor. Business meetings or negotiations should go really well for you this week; your magnetic energy is monetary as well as social, so you may even find yourself making a lucrative deal.

“The Five Types
¶ Science has discovered that there are five types of human beings. Discarding for a moment their technical names, they may be called the fat people, the florid people, the muscular people, the bony people and the mental people.
Each varies from the others in shape, size and structure and is recognizable at a glance by his physique or build. This is because his type is determined by the preponderance within his body of one of the five great departments or biological systems—the nutritive, the circulatory, the muscular, the bony or the nervous.
¶ Every child is born with one of these systems more highly developed, larger and better equipped than the others.
Type Never Disappears
¶ Throughout his life this system will express itself more, be more intense and constant in its functioning than the others and no manner of training, education, environment or experience, so long as he remains in normal health, will alter the predominance of this system nor prevent its dictating his likes, dislikes and most of his reactions.”
“Effect of Eating
¶ If you do not understand why the overreaction of one bodily system should influence a man’s nature see if you can’t recall more than one occasion when a square meal made a decided difference in your disposition within the space of thirty minutes.
If one good meal has the power to alter so completely our personalities temporarily, is it then any wonder that constant overfeeding causes everybody to love a fat man? For the fat man is habitually and chronically in that beatific state which comes from over-eating.”

“Although the use of psychoactive drugs can easily and profoundly change our experience of consciousness, we can also—and often more safely—alter our consciousness without drugs. These altered states of consciousness are sometimes the result of simple and safe activities, such as sleeping, watching television, exercising, or working on a task that intrigues us. In this section we consider the changes in consciousness that occur through hypnosis, sensory deprivation, and meditation, as well as through other non-drug-induced mechanisms.
“Changing Behavior Through Suggestion: The Power of Hypnosis
Franz Anton Mesmer (1734–1815) was an Austrian doctor who believed that all living bodies were filled with magnetic energy. In his practice, Mesmer passed magnets over the bodies of his patients while telling them their physical and psychological problems would disappear. The patients frequently lapsed into a trancelike state (they were said to be “mesmerized”) and reported feeling better when they awoke (Hammond, 2008). 
Although subsequent research testing the effectiveness of Mesmer’s techniques did not find any long-lasting improvements in his patients, the idea that people’s experiences and behaviors could be changed through the power of suggestion has remained important in psychology. James Braid, a Scottish physician, coined the term hypnosis in 1843, basing it on the Greek word for sleep (Callahan, 1997). 
“Hypnosis is a trance-like state of consciousness, usually induced by a procedure known as hypnotic induction, which consists of heightened suggestibility, deep relaxation, and intense focus (Nash & Barnier, 2008).  Hypnosis became famous in part through its use by Sigmund Freud in an attempt to make unconscious desires and emotions conscious and thus able to be considered and confronted (Baker & Nash, 2008). 
Because hypnosis is based on the power of suggestion, and because some people are more suggestible than others, these people are more easily hypnotized. Hilgard (1965)  found that about 20% of the participants he tested were entirely unsusceptible to hypnosis, whereas about 15% were highly responsive to it. The best participants for hypnosis are people who are willing or eager to be hypnotized, who are able to focus their attention and block out peripheral awareness, who are open to new experiences, and who are capable of fantasy (Spiegel, Greenleaf, & Spiegel, 2005). 
“People who want to become hypnotized are motivated to be good subjects, to be open to suggestions by the hypnotist, and to fulfill the role of a hypnotized person as they perceive it (Spanos, 1991).  The hypnotized state results from a combination of conformity, relaxation, obedience, and suggestion (Fassler, Lynn, & Knox, 2008).  This does not necessarily indicate that hypnotized people are “faking” or lying about being hypnotized. Kinnunen, Zamansky, and Block (1994)  ”
“used measures of skin conductance (which indicates emotional response by measuring perspiration, and therefore renders it a reliable indicator of deception) to test whether hypnotized people were lying about having been hypnotized. Their results suggested that almost 90% of their supposedly hypnotized subjects truly believed that they had been hypnotized.
“One common misconception about hypnosis is that the hypnotist is able to “take control” of hypnotized patients and thus can command them to engage in behaviors against their will. Although hypnotized people are suggestible (Jamieson & Hasegawa, 2007),  they nevertheless retain awareness and control of their behavior and are able to refuse to comply with the hypnotist’s suggestions if they so choose (Kirsch & Braffman, 2001).  In fact, people who have not been hypnotized are often just as suggestible as those who have been (Orne & Evans, 1965). 
“Another common belief is that hypnotists can lead people to forget the things that happened to them while they were hypnotized. Hilgard and Cooper (1965) investigated this question and found that they could lead people who were very highly susceptible through hypnosis to show at least some signs of posthypnotic amnesia (e.g., forgetting where they had learned information that had been told to them while they were under hypnosis), but that this effect was not strong or common.
“Some hypnotists have tried to use hypnosis to help people remember events, such as childhood experiences or details of crime scenes, that they have forgotten or repressed. The idea is that some memories have been stored but can no longer be retrieved, and that hypnosis can aid in the retrieval process. But research finds that this is not successful: People who are hypnotized and then asked to relive their childhood act like children, but they do not accurately recall the things that occurred to them in their own childhood (Silverman & Retzlaff, 1986).  Furthermore, the suggestibility produced through hypnosis may lead people to erroneously recall experiences that they did not have (Newman & Baumeister, 1996).  Many states and jurisdictions have therefore banned the use of hypnosis in criminal trials because the “evidence” recovered through hypnosis is likely to be fabricated and inaccurate.
“Hypnosis is also frequently used to attempt to change unwanted behaviors, such as to reduce smoking, overeating, and alcohol abuse. The effectiveness of hypnosis in these areas is controversial, although at least some successes have been reported. Kirsch, Montgomery, and Sapirstein (1995)  found that that adding hypnosis to other forms of therapies increased the effectiveness of the treatment, and Elkins and Perfect (2008)  reported that hypnosis was useful in helping people stop smoking. Hypnosis is also effective in improving the experiences of patients who are experiencing anxiety disorders, such as PTSD (Cardena, 2000; Montgomery, David, Winkel, Silverstein, & Bovbjerg, 2002), and for reducing pain (Montgomery, DuHamel, & Redd, 2000; Paterson & Jensen, 2003).

“A psychoactive drug is a chemical that changes our states of consciousness, and particularly our perceptions and moods. These drugs are commonly found in everyday foods and beverages, including chocolate, coffee, and soft drinks, as well as in alcohol and in over-the-counter drugs, such as aspirin, Tylenol, and cold and cough medication. Psychoactive drugs are also frequently prescribed as sleeping pills, tranquilizers, and antianxiety medications, and they may be taken, illegally, for recreational purposes. As you can see in Table 5.1 “Psychoactive Drugs by Class”, the four primary classes of psychoactive drugs are stimulants, depressants, opioids, and hallucinogens.
“Psychoactive drugs affect consciousness by influencing how neurotransmitters operate at the synapses of the central nervous system (CNS). Some psychoactive drugs are agonists, which mimic the operation of a neurotransmitter; some are antagonists, which block the action of a neurotransmitter; and some work by blocking the reuptake of neurotransmitters at the synapse.
In some cases the effects of psychoactive drugs mimic other naturally occurring states of consciousness. For instance, sleeping pills are prescribed to create drowsiness, and benzodiazepines are prescribed to create a state of relaxation. In other cases psychoactive drugs are taken for recreational purposes with the goal of creating states of consciousness that are pleasurable or that help us escape our normal consciousness.
“The use of psychoactive drugs, and especially those that are used illegally, has the potential to create very negative side effects (Table 5.1 “Psychoactive Drugs by Class”). This does not mean that all drugs are dangerous, but rather that all drugs can be dangerous, particularly if they are used regularly over long periods of time. Psychoactive drugs create negative effects not so much through their initial use but through the continued use, accompanied by increasing doses, that ultimately may lead to drug abuse.
“The problem is that many drugs create tolerance: an increase in the dose required to produce the same effect, which makes it necessary for the user to increase the dosage or the number of times per day that the drug is taken. As the use of the drug increases, the user may developa dependence, defined as a need to use a drug or other substance regularly.
Dependence can be psychological, in which the drug is desired and has become part of the everyday life of the user, but no serious physical effects result if the drug is not obtained; or physical, in which serious physical and mental effects appear when the drug is withdrawn. Cigarette smokers who try to quit, for example, experience physical withdrawal symptoms, such as becoming tired and irritable, as well as extreme psychological cravings to enjoy a cigarette in particular situations, such as after a meal or when they are with friends.
“Users may wish to stop using the drug, but when they reduce their dosage they experience withdrawal—negative experiences that accompany reducing or stopping drug use, including physical pain and other symptoms. When the user powerfully craves the drug and is driven to seek it out, over and over again, no matter what the physical, social, financial, and legal cost, we say that he or she has developed an addiction to the drug.
“It is a common belief that addiction is an overwhelming, irresistibly powerful force, and that withdrawal from drugs is always an unbearably painful experience. But the reality is more complicated and in many cases less extreme. For one, even drugs that we do not generally think of as being addictive, such as caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol, can be very difficult to quit using, at least for some people. On the other hand, drugs that are normally associated with addiction, including amphetamines, cocaine, and heroin, do not immediately create addiction in their users. Even for a highly addictive drug like cocaine, only about 15% of users become addicted (Robinson & Berridge, 2003; Wagner & Anthony, 2002).
”Furthermore, the rate of addiction is lower for those who are taking drugs for medical reasons than for those who are using drugs recreationally. Patients who have become physically dependent on morphine administered during the course of medical treatment for a painful injury or disease are able to be rapidly weaned off the drug afterward, without becoming addicts. Robins, Davis, and Goodwin (1974)  found that the majority of soldiers who had become addicted to morphine while overseas were quickly able to stop using after returning home.
“This does not mean that using recreational drugs is not dangerous. For people who do become addicted to drugs, the success rate of recovery is low. These drugs are generally illegal and carry with them potential criminal consequences if one is caught and arrested. Drugs that are smoked may produce throat and lung cancers and other problems. Snorting (“sniffing”) drugs can lead to a loss of the sense of smell, nosebleeds, difficulty in swallowing, hoarseness, and chronic runny nose. Injecting drugs intravenously carries with it the risk of contracting infections such as hepatitis and HIV. Furthermore, the quality and contents of illegal drugs are generally unknown, and the doses can vary substantially from purchase to purchase. The drugs may also contain toxic chemicals.

A Memoir By Laura Zukerman
“Consciousness is defined as our subjective awareness of ourselves and our environment (Koch, 2004).  The experience of consciousness is fundamental to human nature. We all know what it means to be conscious, and we assume (although we can never be sure) that other human beings experience their consciousness similarly to how we experience ours.
The study of consciousness has long been important to psychologists and plays a role in many important psychological theories. For instance, Sigmund Freud’s personality theories differentiated between the unconscious and the conscious aspects of behavior, and present-day psychologists distinguish between automatic (unconscious) and controlled (conscious) behaviors and between implicit (unconscious) and explicit (conscious) memory (Petty, Wegener, Chaiken, & Trope, 1999; Shanks, 2005). 
“Some philosophers and religious practices argue that the mind (or soul) and the body are separate entities. For instance, the French philosopher René Descartes (1596–1650) was a proponentof dualism, the idea that the mind, a nonmaterial entity, is separate from (although connected to) the physical body. In contrast to the dualists, psychologists believe that consciousness (and thus the mind) exists in the brain, not separate from it. In fact, psychologists believe that consciousness is the result of the activity of the many neural connections in the brain, and that we experience different states of consciousness depending on what our brain is currently doing (Dennett, 1991; Koch & Greenfield, 2007). 
“The study of consciousness is also important to the fundamental psychological question regarding the presence of free will. Although we may understand and believe that some of our behaviors are caused by forces that are outside our awareness (i.e., unconscious), we nevertheless believe that we have control over, and are aware that we are engaging in, most of our behaviors. To discover that we, or even someone else, has engaged in a complex behavior, such as driving in a car and causing severe harm to others, without being at all conscious of one’s actions, is so unusual as to be shocking. And yet psychologists are increasingly certain that a great deal of our behavior is caused by processes of which we are unaware and over which we have little or no control (Libet, 1999; Wegner, 2003). 
“Our experience of consciousness is functional because we use it to guide and control our behavior, and to think logically about problems (DeWall, Baumeister, & Masicampo,2008).  Consciousness allows us to plan activities and to monitor our progress toward the goals we set for ourselves. And consciousness is fundamental to our sense of morality—we believe that we have the free will to perform moral actions while avoiding immoral behaviors.
But in some cases consciousness may become aversive, for instance when we become aware that we are not living up to our own goals or expectations, or when we believe that other people perceive us negatively. In these cases we may engage in behaviors that help us escape from consciousness, for example through the use of alcohol or other psychoactive drugs (Baumeister, 1998). 
“Because the brain varies in its current level and type of activity, consciousness is transitory. If we drink too much coffee or beer, the caffeine or alcohol influences the activity in our brain, and our consciousness may change. When we are anesthetized before an operation or experience a concussion after a knock on the head, we may lose consciousness entirely as a result of changes in brain activity. We also lose consciousness when we sleep, and it is with this altered state of consciousness that we begin our chapter.
