The Veil is Transparent…. and an Illusion: Cosmic Blessings for Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, and All Souls Day!

29 Oct

Uuuuhhh, very SCORPIOnic times (SUN, MERCURY, and this year also: mighty JUPITER since 10/10) – feeling and revealing what’s otherwise hidden, and in the Dark… a magical mystery immersion…

Today Oct 29, the MOON will enter PISCES (at 4:46 pm), and over the next two days go into a mystical, magical Water Trine with the SUN, JUPITER, and MERCURY in SCO, link up with NEPTUNE (tomorrow Oct 30 afternoon), and, after connecting with CHIRON, go void-of-course ON Halloween (without an aspect to any other planet, before entering the next sign), from 2:35 pm PDT on, until 11:43 pm PDT…. letting ourselves GO into the unknowable…
A Halloween full of Magic, Mystery, and Imagination.

The Veil is transparent, and the cosmic Web connects us in the ONE…

 

Here is the Halloween chart – for dusk / 6 pm PDT…
This time, I added some theme comments…- how does it speak to You?

 

 

Happy Halloween, on Oct 31!

 

Impermanent Pumpkin Art, as seen in 2009(!) at the former yearly Fernwood Pumpkin Yard! It was one of the last years of its ‘incarnation’, at the carving house community that used to produce prolific perishable pumpkin art. Spirit prevails, even though forms – like pumpkins disintegrate…

We are approaching in the Zodiac cycle of the SUN the Heart of the Scorpion the center of the Fall Season and Celtic festival of Samhain.

Which was traditionally celebrated on Oct 31 when the ‘Summer’ and harvest time ended. On Nov 1 began a new Celtic calendar year. With large fires, the Celtic people thanked the SUN God for the good harvest, and expelled the evil spirits who wandered around that night. On Oct 31 also those who died in the past year were commemorated. Many believed that the dead returned to their old homes in the night to find warmth and friendship. The lit pumpkins at the door steps or in the windows symbolize skulls with the eternal light of the soul in it. The spirits who had not walked home into the light, wandering at night, scared people, and played tricks on them.

Nov 1 was eventually declared by the Church the Day of All Saints (holy ones), and Nov 2 All Souls Day.

‘All Hallows Evening’ or simply ‘Hallows E’en’ became later Halloween.

 

Samhain Blessings!


CELTIC WHEEL of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices, and the fixed ‘Gates of Power’: Beltane, Lammas, SAMHAIN / HALLOWEEN, and Imbolc.

Even though, mid Scorpio and central Fall are traditionally being celebrated with Halloween / Samhain on Oct 31, the exact centre (15°) of Scorpio is not on Oct 31 but round Nov 7.

This year, we’ll have a mid-TAURUS / mid-SCORPIO FULL MOON on Nov 3 / 4!
Very potent times with strongly concentrated energies that can bring out extremes and big contrasts… – which are guide posts to transformation.

Stay tuned for the Full Moon Astro~News Blog, and don’t get attached – or I shall say, let’s check out where we do get attached,. acknowledge it (don’t leave it ‘in the dark’) – so that it can change…

 

Feliz Dias de los Muertos Oct 31 – Nov 2!
Blessings for All Saints Day on Nov 1, and All Souls Day on Nov 2!

Mexican Dia de los Muertos Calavera Altar (from Wiki Commons)

 

In Catholic Bavaria where I come from and where my biological ancestors are from and my family lives, on All Saints Day (Nov 1), families visit the graves of their ancestors, after a mass, similarly to Dia de los Muertos in Mexico yet more solemnly.

A time of bringing fresh flowers, love, prayers and candles to the resting place of their bones, and to honour the undying soul.
Maybe a time to let go, to forgive, and know, Love is all that matters.

Halloween pumpkins with candles inside originally represented skulls with the eternal light of the undying soul ‘inside’. Through dying and transforming appearances, Light prevails.

The carved face or feature is the ‘façade’ and appearance, and the candle light is Spirit ‘behind’ and ‘inside’ it..

Perhaps a different way of looking at ‘carved pumpkins’ or of carving one…. And a different way of looking at ANY appearances…

Oct 26: SUN / JUPITER in SCO, AND MOON / PLUTO in CAP: Outgrowing the Old. Change for the Better!

26 Oct

Today’s a big day astrologically (which of course extends):

There’s a huge transformational boost round this day, OCT 26, when the SUN meets mighty JUPITER in SCO (only once a year), and it’s also the day of the encounter of the CAP MOON with PLUTO – the ruler of SCO!

They both point to personal emotional AND societal processing of old conditioning, and conscious awareness of what’s been hidden (or hidden in plain sight), so that it may BE the Change for the better!

 


May we outgrow the old and defunct, and build the new with the essence and BEST of the old and timeless!

End of LIBRA NEW MOON opposite URANUS: Diving into the Alchemy of Life! Awakening into the always-New & Free Self.

19 Oct

The LIBRA NEW MOON this year is only 3 days before the SUN enters SCO.

We’ve been experiencing a series of New Moons at the end of a Zodiac sign, since the Total Solar Eclipse on Aug 21 – on the very last degree of LEO.
The pattern continues until the end of the year. The SAG New Moon will be on Dec 17.

This is the New Moon following the Super VIRGO New Moon opposite CHIRON on Sept 19 which carried a lot of complex, nervous, and overwhelming energy, and was a call for flexibility in integrity.
How has your lunar month been???

Seems like more than a month has passed, since it was packed and loaded.
And we’re in a whole different season now…
So yeah, today Oct 19 at 12:12 pm PDT was the LI New Moon – on the cusp to SCO.
Please find its ‘birth chart’ below.
The transition from LI to SCO is a ‘Tipping Point’ energy (the scales tip, and choices lead to change) and also an  ‘Alchemy Point’ (‘ingredients’ of experiences may come together, and encounters with people may deeply touch us, and have transformational effects on us).
Falling in Love, Falling into Fall, Dying to the old Self and immersing into the Change….

 

What’s the MAGIC and ALCHEMY you’re stepping, falling, or diving into, these extreme and emotionally intense times?

Maybe you’ve come to a point where you say:
NO more playing games and strategizing, no more presenting yourself to others in a ‘convenient’ and conventional way to not rock the boat, no more compromising and compensating…
While deep inside (or barely under the surface) the authentic YOU is SO ready to be born / reborn (URANUS in ARIES) and LIVE.

  • What would ‘tip the scales’ of choices for you?
  • What’s the paradigm shift that’s about to happen now, or has already happened for you, that sets you FREE?

Maybe you’re done with inner relationship contracts (a LIBRAN thing) with self absorbed, overly dramatic, narcissistic, toxic (you name it) people in your life (in personal relationships, and ‘even’ with famous people ‘out there’ in public).
Don’t blame them and self-victimize, can’t change them. What do they mirror you?
We have to change from within. Themes around change are so BIG, and there are so many opportunities now – MERCURY / JUPITER both now in SCO.
See ‘Taboo Talk’ blog post from Oct 17.

Sometimes, the issues have to get big (JUPITER) to change (SCO).
Perhaps a theme of the whole JUPITER-in-SCO year (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018).

Through our deep inner change (SCO), the World we perceive (JU) changes. 
Disclaimer: This is not a call for a rose coloured spiritual bypassing, rather for a deeper immersion, and intimacy with Life that might appear scary at first.

 

This NEW MOON in LIBRA is in a sense like a FULL MOON, because of its polarity with URANUS in ARIES.

Liberating ‘Golden Boy’ Prometheus at the Rockefeller Centre NYC, surrounded by the Zodiac belt. Prometheus the Awakener is the Archetype related to the Planet Uranus!

 

Lots of tension, polarization, upset, tragedy and turmoil is going on these days (I don’t need to tell you, it’s everywhere…). Scary and unsettling indeed, yet it’s also deeply moving time that brings us fully into the moment (ARIES).

I had my mini share of acute URANian intervention these days:
The internet wasn’t working yesterday and today – made me once again realize how dependent we all are on the umbilical cable / wireless connection. And I couldn’t get to the blog either for that matter.
After a few diy attempts, calls to my internet company, a phase of being really nervous, since one technician said it’s an issue with my computer, and asked whether it’s still on warranty!, mutual Scorpionic detective work with a competent technician lady (didn’t give up, called again – LIBRA kicked in: finding a good ‘match’ in her), in the end, re-setting the router did the job.
If you don’t have an assigned technician and deal with who’s randomly on the other end it’s a hit and miss – and self-education along the line…
Ok, URANUS definitely brought me into the acuteness of the moment here.
Meditation and smudging during the New Moon time (before calling ‘the right person’) helped with inner and space reset. Seems like I was guided to intuitively do the right things…

So yeah, thank you for your patience with the AstroNews delivery!!!

I just researched, and found that since URANUS has been in ARIES (March 11, 2011), there have been LIBRA NEW MOONs exactly opposite URANUS every 2 years:
2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017 – today – wow!
The whole URANUS in ARIES phase since 2011 has been a series of wake-up calls (URANUS entered into ARIES on the day when the Fukushima catastrophy happened), and a mass Awakening of Humanity, politically / societally, and spiritually.

When URANUS goes into relationship with a New MOON in LIBRA peace, balance, and harmony can be quite disrupted and even shattered.
On another level, True Freedom, Awakening and Liberation is ripe to be brought into the realm of relatedness – which would show up in areas of life related to the LI – AR axis in your chart.

The Self is like the Ocean – always New, Fresh, and Free – Photo by Melanie, Oct 2017

 

Apropos Freedom:
Last weekend, I was at a Krishnamurti retreat. K (as he’s being called) pointed out in a video:
What’s Freedom that has no opposite? Only this is true Freedom. 
What’s Love that has no opposite? Only this is true Love.

Deep, simple, radical truth pointers (a la SATURN now coming to the ‘Galactic Centre’ end phase of SAG…) that have stayed with me, and that I’ve shared with friends and clients.
With this in mind and heart, it’s not about a path of holding the balance between opposites of Freedom (URANUS in ARIES) and Relatedness (LIBRA) but the (pathless) point is to BE FREE, unconditionally, authentically, anywhere, everywhere.

And this could be a radical (URANUS) seed point (New MOON / ARIES) NOW.

 

Let’s take a look at the LIBRA NEW MOON chart!

The New Moon was today Oct 19 at 12:12 pm PDT.

LI NM 2017

So here it is, setting the tone for the next Lunar month:

What a striking gathering of SUN / MOON late LIBRA, next to JUPITER / MERCURY in early SCORPIO!
All four celestial bodies are wrapped around the ‘Alchemy Point’, from Earth perspective.
Right opposite (for the SUN and MOON exactly, today!) URANUS retro in late ARIES!

Perhaps also a reflection of the volatile scenario of a few crazy people playing with Uranium these days, while the scales may finally tip towards peaceful coexistence!

On the other hand, a wake-up call to be fully alive in THIS, experience the Magic and Alchemy of every moment, and drop into the Intimacy with Life.

The momentum goes towards SCORPIO:

  • The MOON will enter SCO (in her monthly cycle) today Oct 19 at 6:41 pm PDT – 6 hrs after the New Moon, and we might drop emotionally into intensely moving, cathartic processes.
  • The SUN will seasonably move into SCO on SUN-day Oct 22 at 10:27 pm PDT, for a month of bringing consciousness to change from within, and new empowerment from there.
    There’s a huge transformational boost round Oct 26, when the SUN meets mighty JUPITER in SCO (only once a year), and it’s also the day of the encounter of the CAP MOON with PLUTO – the ruler of SCO, pointing to emotional processing of old conditioning, and awareness of what’s been hidden, so that it may change for the better.
  • VENUS will join SCO on Nov 7 (until Dec 1), ‘exiled’ from ‘her’ Taurean domain. We’re drawn to  look under the surface of things, and discover hidden beauty in the dark and changeful.
    Don’t get too absorbed in a ‘magical black hole’, too many vampire movies, crime scenes, and personal power games though, as VENUS will go into conjunction with JUPITER on Nov 13, and into trine with NEPTUNE in PISCES on Nov 16. Rather channel the energy into deep immersion in the mystery of Life.
  • Lastly, MARS will go into SCO on Dec 9, when all the other archetypal players except JUPITER will have left SCO.  MARS will connect with JUPITER on Jan 7, 2018 – the last connection of a planet with JUPITER in SCO (until Oct / Nov 2018). New year’s purge? Definitely a lot of energy is available.

 

Also very prominent these days, as seen in the New Moon chart:
The Mutable T-square from MARS in late VIRGO (will move out of the alignment, and into LIBRA on Oct 22), opposite CHIRON retro in late PISCES, both square SATURN / LILITH in late SAG – the Galactic Centre!
A challenge / stress dynamic that needs an outlet at the late SAG apex.
Maybe you’ve felt overwhelmed, helpless, and disconnected – CHIRON in PI – (I did, literally, from the Internet…), and needed realignment ‘surgery’ and assertion of your integrity (MARS in VIR).

Connecting, asking for help, and doing spiritual practice with subtle energy brings things into flow again. When in a ‘rien ne va plus’ mode, it’s important to follow natural inner guidance (SATURN / LILITH in SAG) that knows… even if you don’t see the light.

LILITH and SATURN in late SAG connect in auspicious trine with URANUS retro in late ARIES (was for LILITH already exact on Oct 12 – see: me too ‘explosion’, will be for SATURN on Nov 11).

Trusting intuition, trying a completely new approach, re-set and re-start, seeing things from a fresh angle, and being fully present with what’s in front of you, step by step is the way to go.

Next up:
MARS will enter LIBRA on Oct 22 (until Dec 9) – Pursuit of Balance…?
On the same day (Oct 22) the SUN crosses over the Alchemy Point, and enters SCO. 
Stay tuned for the next AstroNews Blog post!

MERCURY / JUPITER in SCORPIO: Taboo Talk

17 Oct
Not even a week ago since JUPITER crossed the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO on 10/10.

And already SUCH a movement of so many of us who don’t put up with LIBRAN ‘being nice and polite’, playing the game, or compromising / compensating for other people’s s..t anymore.
The ‘me too’ tidal wave is one example of how airing what’s been hidden is empowering and transforming.


MUCH more to come, under JUPITER in SCORPIO until Nov 9, 2018.
Have I mentioned yet? SATURN will cross the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAPRICORN on Dec 19!

We’re also in the T-square from MARS in late VIR opp. CHIRON in PI (exact Sunday Oct 15 when the me too wave started), both in square to SATURN and LILITH in late SAG (the Galactic Centre) –
Truth Speaking spirals out like a Galaxy, and sets us free. Who knows where Humanity goes from there.

Sooo.
MERCURY is now (since this – Oct 17 – morning) also in SCORPIO, joining and passing JUPITER tomorrow (Wed) morning.
Big Time Taboo Talk, as we dive into ‘uncomfortable’, scary, repressed, covered up, and unfathomable topics and scenarios, remembered, experienced, or perhaps vividly pictured.

Of course, this is only the starting point, to process what’s been ‘under wraps’…


The ‘me too’ social media wave, triggered my Alyssa Milano just a few days ago, encouraged women and men: “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” 

Hundreds of thousands of us responded. 

Which woman never has been sexually harassed or assaulted, verbally or physically???
Sadly and scandalously, it almost ‘comes with the territory’ of inhabiting a female body (speaking from personal experience).
Up until now.

 

A hidden issue of magnitude (JUPITER) indeed, that’s been talked about now big time.
May the Truth empower us, and bring Healing and Freedom!
JUPITER (only one week so far) in SCORPIO – Outgrowing what’s been hidden!

 

Me too isn’t completely new – 11 years ago (JUPITER was also in SCO then), Tarana Burke founded the me too Movement in 2006, to spread awareness and understanding about sexual assault in underprivileged communities of colour. 

May the Me too wave lead to ‘game over ‘ / zero tolerance for sexual harassment, assault, and even violence in Hollywood, and in a Society of true Adults!
I know I’m a ‘bit’ idealistic here but putting the blessing out regardless.
Big kudos, Alyssa Milano, for getting the ball rolling!
A.M. was born on Dec 19, 1972 – here is her chart.
Lilith and Saturn are now (Oct / Nov, only every 9 / 29 years) transiting her late SAG Sun – the Integrity Point. She even has PLUTO on her JUPITER / North Node in CAP nowadays /-years – being a catalyst for Eve-olution out of the dysfunctional and abusive patriarchal system.
And  with her MARS in late SCO, VENUS / NEPTUNE / MERCURY in early SAG – all on the ‘Phoenix Point’ on her 12th House cusp, she’s speaking out on behalf  of ‘whom it may concern’, and encourages the Collective to speak out and free up hidden stuff – we’re all in this together, it’s a societal phenomenon.
Her SATURN / MOON in GEMINI also got activated just in the last months – must voice and question on behalf of (mostly) women…

And that’s just the beginning of a major SCORPIO infusion:


We’re heading into a spooky (if you will), Astro Archetype line-up in SCO that’ll reach us deeply to evoke change from within, and has us process deep, otherwise covered themes:
  • The MOON will enter SCO (in her monthly cycle) on Oct 19 at 6:41 pm PDT – 6 hrs after the New Moon, and we might drop emotionally into intensely moving, cathartic processes.
  • The SUN will seasonably move into SCO on SUN-day Oct 22 at 10:27 pm PDT, for a month of bringing consciousness and new empowerment to what’s ready to transform. There’s a huge transformational boost round Oct 26, when the SUN meets mighty JUPITER in SCO! (Also the day of MOON / PLUTO – ruler of SCO).
  • VENUS will join SCO on Nov 7 (until Dec 1), ‘exiled’ from ‘her’ Taurean domain. We’re drawn to  look under the surface of things. Don’t get too absorbed in a ‘magical mystery black hole’, too many vampire movies, crime scenes, and personal power games (VENUS will go into conjunction with JUPITER on Nov 13, and into trine with NEPTUNE in PISCES on Nov 16).
  • Lastly, MARS will go into SCO on Dec 9, when all the other archetypal players except JUPITER will have left SCO.  MARS will connect with JUPITER on Jan 7, 2018 – the last connection of a planet with JUPITER in SCO (until Oct / Nov 2018). New year’s purge?

 

Stay tuned for the end-of-LIBRA New Moon (Oct 19) Astro~News!

JUPITER into SCORPIO (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018) :: Deep Dive into the Alchemy

9 Oct

Mighty JUPITER has come to the end of its 13-month journey through LIBRA (09/09, 2016 – 10/10, 2017), and moves over theTipping Point’ into SCORPIO tomorrow, Oct 10!

Harvesting the LIBRAN gifts that JUPITER has brought with questions like these can be quite fruitful:

  • What have you seen more clearly about relationships with significant others and yourself IN relatedness, over the last year? 
  • What did you attract in others as a reflection of yourself (missing parts, blind spots, shadow projection)?
  • Which important choices came up for you, and how did you go about choosing wisely?
  • How do you go about restoring inner and outer peace and balance, in a world of turmoil (JUPITER in LI has been opposed by URANUS in ARIES 3 times, in Dec 2016, March and Sept 2017)?

The area of life related to LIBRA in your chart (House, Planets) has been ‘blown up’ over the last year, so that there can be more SPACE around it that allows for (mutual) growth.

 

 

On the LIBRA – SCORPIO ‘Tipping Point’,

Choices (or a Choiceless Choice?) lead to Change!
Choosing from Peace.
Deep Journey into Change.

The cusp from LIBRA to SCORPIO is not ‘just’ a Tipping Point.

 
It’s also an ‘ALCHEMY Point’, and a Magical Zone.

New Life Unfurling in the Fall – Photo by Melanie, Oct 2017

SO much MAGIC is showing up these days – if we invite it, and are open and grateful (JUPITERian qualities)!

I’ve been blessed with a whole domino effect of Magic at and since a personal retreat this Thanksgiving weekend, where a recurring theme has been ‘Free Fall into the Timeless’ 
Inquiries like:
Freedom that has no opposite.
Love that has no opposite.
…have been gifts that open tremendous SPACE – very JUPITERian…

And then, intimate encounters (LIBRA – SCORPIO) with Nature Beings (Plants, Trees, Animals, the Elements) have shown me the Timelessness yet natural Timeliness they’re always in.
What they teach me in that moment is just perfectly what resonates and what I need to hear. What looks like ‘synchronicities’ seems more the result of naturally being ‘at the right time at the right place’ without resisting, without ulterior agenda.

The Wisdom of Nature, and the Intimacy with Life as it Unfolds….

It can’t be actually described and talked about (as airy LIBRA would like to – which would also lead to Libran comparisons…) since it’s a very visceral sense of what happens – the SCORPIO realm.

Have you tapped into the ‘Magic Zone’ and the Alchemy too, these days?

On the ‘Alchemy Point’ encounters happen, and  ‘ingredients’ are ‘married’, to co-create something bigger than the sum of them.
If the ‘match’ is magical powerful change is afoot!
JUPITER into SCORPIO shows us opportunities to go into magical and alchemical change – if we trust the Unknown…
 

Alchemy Retort. Medieval painting,. Origin unknown.

…and dig deeply into our taboo, repressed, or emotionally (apparently) controlled experiences, are offered now (galore!) to alchemically / psychologically / spiritually, or even ‘just’ instinctively process them.

Which can reveal hidden treasures and powerful resources that we might have buried from the world and ourselves.
We don’t know yet what’s ‘behind the veil’ and underneath the cover. That’s the whole point.
Who knows what comes from that?!
 

A lot (JUPITER) is due for transformation now.
In Society and the World at large, and in our personal inner worlds.
My sense is, A LOT of hidden agenda will be revealed in the World which inevitably leads to change.

JUPITER in LIBRA has brought the themes of relatedness, fairness, equality, balance, and peace so strongly to our awareness…
Not that it’s ‘all good’ in that realm as ‘benefic JUPITER’ has visited that realm (as the old-world polarized / simplistic Astrology would have suggested) – in fact it can have the opposite effect.

If there’s a ‘formula’ for a JUPITER Transit, it’s more like:
The theme gets bigger, so that we can fully SEE what’s going on there (a magnifying glass effect), to create space around it,  and use the opportunities to outgrow the old.

People and other ‘partners’ (even shadow projections) have come into our lives who show us a mirror (LIBRA) of what’s due for transformation (SCO).

Now, JUPITER in SCO helps us with processing what’s ‘in the dark’ – maybe because the theme is everywhere, lots of others are ‘coming out’ with taboos and under cover issues, and massive processing is going on.

Having found good partners (LIBRA), and being in good relations with others who also go into depth and darkness (SCO) can help. Whether they are physically present, or whether there’s lots of space between you – even all around the globe (JUPITER).
Yet, it’s of course an ‘inside job’ for everyone – with the inner JUPITERian Mentor on your side. No other person can do it ‘for you’.
It’s your inner access to nature-ALL Power (SCO). 

Power of Love?
Power of Freedom?
Finding a motto that speaks deeply to you and guides you on the Journey can help.

 

SCORPIO, PLUTO, and the Shadow

SCO is ruled by PLUTO which is more outwardly ‘active’ again as it’s going direct / forward from Earth perspective, since Sept 28, calling us to follow the Power of the ‘Body Wisdom’ (Sabian Symbol for the PLUTO Turning Point degree at 17 CAP) for empowered change.

The ‘original’ PLUTO in our chart points to our inner Power Centre in the Core of our Being, or rather:
How historic / societal conditioning has repressed and controlled our Power, and what needs to transform in us to step into it.


Similar to Persephone’s decent into the realm of PLUTO / Hades in Fall where an Initiation happens before ‘she’ and Nature come back in Spring, we might need to ‘dive’ into our inner ‘Underworld’ in the next while, for a deep regeneration and re-empowerment from within.

Perhaps to alchemically transform the ‘lead’ of ego consciousness into the ‘Gold’ of the pure Self.
Not by ‘killing’ the ego (which still comes from a dualistic / separative ego consciousness) but by making it conscious, by exposing the dark and sticky attachments that drain our energy like a vampire to the light.

Jekyll / Hyde

How do we recognize the ego’s ways?
In SCO, it ‘should be’ actually quite easy because it can get so intense when it displays low vibrational responses of…
…obsessions, compulsions, and various needs for control, as if there were inner demons that have a hold on you, or ‘hungry ghosts’ (a Buddhist term for desires that can never be satisfied – the belly is always bigger than the mouth).
And since these things are embarrassing, there’s a shame factor involved as well that keeps things under wraps – which can create a vicious circle.

The energy is often released through behavioral symptoms like being secretive, involving ‘allies’ into one’s ’cause’ and controlling them, being cynical, hurtful (knowing where to ‘bite’ others in their vulnerable side) in order to not get hurt, being manipulative…
Sometimes behind all this is a deep fear of death – the ultimate loss of control.
In SCO strong and deep emotions (SCO is a fixed Water sign) can be hermetically sealed in the Alchemy retort.

JUPITER in SCO brings Awareness to all this, has us face our hidden sides, inner darkness and inner light, and (RE)discover our Soul Power that’s the catalyst for change.

Awareness, witnessing, and holding space (JUPITER) is often ‘all’ it takes to let things run their course and to outgrow them gradually.
After all, the pristine Lotus Flower too, is rooted in the murky Scorpionic swamp.

 

Here is the JUPITER-into SCORPIO chart – viewed from Victoria BC.

 

As you see, JUPITER leads into SCO.
It catalyzes the other planetary Archetypes and their alignments into the Alchemy:

SUN / MERCURY – rather than letting the Mind run the show, be mindful and conscious of what’s going on;
VENUS / MARS opposing CHIRON, in T-square with SATURN / LILITH – rather than a wounding battle of the sexes that goes nowhere, except into old patterns and beliefs, a sacred union that heals and points to the ultimate unknowable…

MERCURY (on Oct 17), the SUN (on Oct 22), VENUS (on Nov 1), and MARS (on Dec 9) will follow into SCORPIO.
When these personal planets / planetary Archetypes unite with JUPITER their qualities get enhanced through a deepening:

MERCURY / JUPITER (Oct 19): More depth through communication that goes under the skin.
SUN / JUPITER (Oct 26 – also the day of MOON / PLUTO!): Massive Consciousness about the Change that’s needed and is under way.
VENUS / JUPITER (Nov 13): Magnetized by the Power of Love.
MARS / JUPITER (Jan 7): Radical Purge and Transformation.

Every month, the intense and powerful SCORPIO MOON will unite with JUPITER which can evoke deep, amplified emotions – quite the time for purging and alchemical change from within – maybe after a few rounds. Be gentle with yourself and your environment, as you get ‘a hang of it’. And have a MOON calendar at hand..
First encounters of JUPITER / MOON in SCO:
Oct 19 (right after the late LI New Moon!), Nov 16, Dec 14.

 

JUPITER’s Gifts for SCORPIOS & SCORPIO Mini Generations


JUPITER in SCO offers this year extraordinary opportunities for a deepening and expansion of consciousness for whole groups of ‘SCO Mini Generations’, and of course for everyone with SUN, MOON, AC, and personal Planets (MERCURY, VENUS, MARS) in SCO.


Whichever Planetary Archetype is in SCO for you gets enhanced – with the opportunity to be alchemically transformed into coming even more from Soul Power – which changes everything.

What are the ‘SCORPIO Mini Generations’?
All of us born with slow moving, societal (JUPITER, CHIRON, SATURN) and transpersonal, evolutionary Planets (URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO) in SCORPIO.

And that’s a LOT of us!
B.t.w., I give the whole time spectrum from first entry into SCO until final exit, incl. brief intervals back in LIBRA or forward in SAG. In doubt get in touch with me, and I can let you know from your birth chart, or set up your chart if you don’t have it yet.

Here are the ‘Mini Generations’, with ‘working titles’.
Expanding on their generational themes would be a topic for another, extensive blog post – perhaps during JUPITER in SCO?

PLUTO in SCO – The Magicians
Nov 1983 – Nov 1995

NEPTUNE in SCO – The Mystics
Oct 1956 – Nov 1970

URANUS in SCO – The Liberators
Nov 1974 – Nov 1981

CHIRON in SCO – The Shamans
Nov 1946 – Nov 1948
Jan 1997 – Sept 1999

SATURN in SCO – The Masters of Transformation
Oct 1953 – Oct 1956
Dec 1982 – Nov 1985
Oct 2012 – Sept 2015

North Node in SCO – New Values through Deep Change
Oct 1956 – May 1958
June 1975 – Dec 1976
Jan 1994 – Aug 1995
Sept 2012 – March 2014

JUPITER in SCO – Deep Dive into the Alchemy
Oct 1934 – Nov 1935
Sept 1946 – Oct 1947
Jan 1958 – Oct 1959
Dec 1969 – Feb 1972
Dec 1981 – Dec 1982
Nov 1993 – Dec 1994
Nov 2005 – Nov 2006

 

These phases of Planets moving through SCORPIO had a certain signature / Zeitgeist.
Maybe you remember some of them, how they changed you, through going through a deep psychological process, esp. related to the area in your life related to the SCORPIO House in your chart. 

 

Now, as JUPITER initiates SCORPIO again, we’re all exposed to more depth, to SEE and be fully aware of what’s been hidden (incl. what we were hiding from ourselves), to process and purge deep stuff and ‘dark matter’, and allow it to transform into pure ‘Gold’.

May we come out deeply changed, perhaps like a Phoenix out of the Ashes, having burnt off and outgrown old consciousness, when JUPITER crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ on Nov 9, 2018!

 

You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11, 2017), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.

ARIES – LIBRA Harvest Moon 2017: Wake Up, Be Fully YOU, and Bring Your Authentic Nature into Cooperation and Partnership!

4 Oct

Boom!
The ARIES MOON is here-now, since 1:40 pm PDT today Oct 4 – opening the scene for her exact Fullness, opposite the LIBRA SUN, tomorrow, Oct 5 at 11:40 am PDT.

The warm and golden early October SUN and the crispy-fresh moonlit nights this week have been such a beautiful gift of contrast and balance.

Balance and Freshness by the Water (and what a way of being a West-Coast child!) –               Photo by Melanie, Oct 2017

 

The first Full Moon in Fall is coming up!
It’s the Harvest Moon – the Full Moon closest to the Fall Equinox!

 

A good time to check in, what’s coming to Fruition, in this Harvest time – not just from the Summer, but from longer phases!

Soo much has been stirred up and in turmoil in the social and public world, and for many of us privately too in the last weeks, as URANUS the Shake-up / Wake-up Liberator yet also disruptive, shocking, and traumatizing force turned direct / forward at the very end of ARIES, in early August.

  • How have you set yourself FREE from being bombarded with news that could easily re-traumatize something latent in you?
  • What do you DO about moving courageously forward in your life and in this world?
  • What’s waking up in you?

 

MARS, the ruler of ARIES, has been travelling close to the SUN this Summer which heated up the atmosphere, and it’s been sadly literally a record year for out-of-control wildfires here in the West.
Hope you found positive passionate outlets for MARS / SUN this Summer! 
The SUN is gradually further ahead of MARS now, loosening the heated Yang type combo, plus, the present LIBRA SUN is ruled by VENUS, and more conducive to the dance and negotiation in partnership than than battling with fire and fury.
Additionally, up until tomorrow, Oct 5, MARS has been ahead of VENUS (since Spring 2016!), and we’ve seen the effects of a MARS driven world all too well.
This too is changing, as VENUS will pass MARS, just hours before the Full Moon.
Please find my VENUS / MARS blog post here, for more in-depth info (incl. the Sabian Symbol for their union).

  • What’s cooking for you, in the Conscious Cooperation Caravan?

 

Also JUPITER is coming to the end of its 11-month journey through LIBRA next week, on Oct 10, when it moves over the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO (until Nov 9, 2018).
Harvesting the LIBRAN gifts by JUPITER with questions like these can be quite fruitful:

  • What have you seen more clearly about relationships with significant others and yourself IN relatedness, over the last year? 
  • What did you attract in others as a reflection of yourself (missing parts, blind spots, shadow projection)?
  • Which important choices came up for you, and how did you go about choosing wisely?
  • How do you go about restoring inner and outer peace and balance, in a world of turmoil (JUPITER in LI has been opposed by URANUS in ARIES 3 times, in Dec 2016, March and Sept 2017)?

The area of life related to LIBRA in your chart is what has been ‘blown up’ so that there can be more space around it that allows for (mutual) growth.


‘Even’ good ole SATURN comes to the end of the SAG finish line soon – on Dec 19 – where it’s been since Sept 2015, challenging us to focus on the light and on what matters, in a world of distraction and disorientation.

Harvest review:

  • How do you stay on track on your intrinsic path?
  • When challenges and ‘obstacles’ show up, can you recognize them for what they are, adjust the course or our approach, and take the teaching and guidance?
  • How have you been able to not loose heart, with what you see in the world
  • What keeps you moving forward with your vision? Where’s your WHY?
  • Where does the journey go NOW, and what motivated you now, compared to 2 years ago?

 

We’re in the build-up time for this ARIES Full Moon that’s a ‘fierce midwife to URANUS’, the Awakener and Revolutionary Archetype.

When the BS hits the fan there’s no holding back – so much is bursting out now, as in ARIES – emergence / emergency. Quite the wake-up call, for The Feminine (MOON) and for The People.

In traditional Astrology, the MOON is the Archetype of the People vs. the SUN is the King / Queen / Ruler. I know, this societal model is outdated, and up for evolutionary change, but hey, it’s been symbolically still in effect, and currently again in full force, as seen in places like Catalunya striving for its independence from Spain (see yesterday’s Astro blog about it, with the charts of Barcelona and Spain).
It illustrates what’s going on and shaken up at so many places and in so many ways:
The People (MOON in ARIES) come out and stand up: “Hey, this is US, our Catalan identity can’t be repressed (PLUTO in CAP), our voice must be heard, we’re not in this anymore, and we might pro-actively declare our independence.” Suspense in Spain…

Speaking one’s Truth, and being on the Path is very ‘loaded’ now. The Full Moon will be in the central LEO part of ARIES, and URANUS is in the Sagittarian part of ARIES – linking over in a trine to SATURN in SAG – the end of ‘old stories and beliefs’.
What stories are wanna-be leaders trying to tell us?
We’re not living by ‘old stories and dogmatic laws and beliefs anymore.

 

Calling for a Revolution?

Angel_of_Revelation _W.Blake

Angel of Revelation, Painting by William Blake

The Inner Revolution and Liberation has begun for so many of us, in fact, is HERE when we wake up from the past, from the dream, from anything that keeps us from living in the NOW.

Since the ARIES FULL MOON is close to URANUS (and will meet URANUS on Oct 6, the door to spiritual awakening is open.

Upon waking up (“What a crazy nightmare was that???” or “Was I dull, not really alive, apathetic, and paralyzed?”), a freedom FOR a conscious new start, a new blossoming, and / or: An alert presence in the I AM can ‘take over’.

 

What’s LIBRA got to do with it?

DSC01889


It offers questions like:

  • What would be conscious (SUN) choices (LIBRA) that meet the need (MOON) to be authentically, fully YOU (ARIES)? Hint – it starts with: Choose Yourself!
  • What’s negotiable (LIBRA) and what’s a deal breaker (URANUS in ARIES)?
  • How could a partnership look like (LIBRA) that brings out the partners’ liberated beingness (URANUS in ARIES) where the light is reflected to one another?
  • Baby steps at a time (ARIES) are fine and normal.
  • Too much sitting on the fence, weighing and waiting (for the other to make a move, for ‘something’ to happen and tip the scale) doesn’t do it much longer. JUPITER ‘had it’ and crosses over the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCO on Oct 10. Choices create change!

Lots of questions to consider, says SUN / MERCURY, not far from JUPITER in LIBRA, on the other side of the ‘equation’.
Yet, i.m.o., being truly, spontaneously authentic in the Self naturally supports good choices, and things don’t ‘stick’ so much in relationships that need to be ‘ironed out’ again.
I know, it can be a balancing act to bring one’s true authentic Nature into relationship – but it’s actually more from the perspective of the conditioned Self an ‘issue’ than from the free, authentic Self.

 

And then, what a beautiful cosmic reflection showing up also tomorrow:

YinYang Infinite

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

On the DAY of the ARIES (ruled by MARS) – LIBRA (ruled by VENUS) Full Moon will be also the union (every 2 years only) of VENUS and MARS (see today’s blog post for this theme)!

May cooperation (VENUS) rather than competition and confrontation (MARS) lead the way now!

May the world, humanity, and everyone of us be more / come back into integrity (VIR), and may right relationship/s in dynamic, ‘juicy’ synergy help us with conscious, creative cooperation!


VENUS goes into square with SATURN on Oct 8, and MARS on Oct 9:
Specifics and ‘details’ can make things complicated and create conflict and stagnation – or just need to be ‘ironed out’ to open the path for the YES.

VENUS will go into opposition with CHIRON in PISCES on Oct 10, and MARS on Oct 15:
Integrity in adaptive Fluidity can be the Medicine.

 

Voila – here is the chart for the exact ARIES – LIBRA Full Moon tomorrow Oct 5, at 11:40 am PDT, as viewed from Victoria BC:

AR - LI FM 2017

You see the Full Moon Axis of the MOON in mid-ARIES (with LEO undertone – Be Fully and authentically YOU!) not far from URANUS end of ARIES which is in mutually enhancing Fire trine with SATURN / LILITH in late SAG.
LILITH is now in the area pointing to the Galactic Centre where we deeply trust the ultimately Unknown – to reveal our True Nature in the ‘Journey’.

The SUN and MERCURY bring contrasting balance in mid-LIBRA (with an AQ undertone):

  • How can we consciously cooperate for Peace, Justice, Fairness, Equality? It takes a team / group / circle / humanity.
  • What’s a well-suited cooperation and partnership – esp. with others who show up in the area of life where LIBRA is in your chart?
    If they aren’t naturally compatible how can you bring yourself into balance and be at peace with what IS?

MERCURY will go into opposition with URANUS on Oct 15, and the SUN on Oct 19 (the day of the LIBRA New Moon) which can be quite a dilemma between ‘Us’ and ‘Me’ or convention and spontaneous action. It can also resolve the tension from JUPITER opp. URANUS since last Winter. May there be a consciously chosen win-win!

PLUTO, still stationary (went direct on Sept 29) in mid-CAP is the apex (= outlet) of a wide cardinal T-square with the Full Moon axis!

What does PLUTO in CAP point to, where can the change be sourced, and what can the state of things change into?

  • The Power of TIME and Timeliness.
    How do we know when’s the ‘right & ripe time’, esp. when making choices that involve / are dependent on others (LIBRA) while you might want to move forward or it’s not really your gig (ARIES)?
    Astrology helps through showing us the cosmic cycles, and how to align with them. Natural inner knowing and alignment helps too. Don’t let yourself get guilt-tripped (“You should do this for… them”) or pressured (“You should be already…. doing this”) in this ever so 24/7 production mode world (which isn’t really all that productive, if natural cycles of rest and regeneration aren’t honoured.
    So perhaps the Power of TIME means to slow down, smell the Roses, and let things naturally ripen until their Harvest time comes…?
  • Honouring the Elders, and Receiving Guidance.
    Elders may be biological Elders, Spirit Elders, the Spirit of the ‘Old World’…
    Being in (LIBRA) partnership with them, and guided (CAP) by and to them can be very powerful – IF you hear the call (SATURN, the ruler of CAP is now in SAG, testing us to find where the most important YES is).
  • Working Well with Resources. Being Resourceful.
    Which ties into Time and Natural Laws…

    Working respectfully with the cycles of nature, incl. our own nature, the human life cycle, and day-to-day cycles. CAP traditionally works with the Land, and cooperates with Nature. When and where is a good time / place to seed / plant / harvest?
    There’s simplicity and beauty in this. Can we apply it again more into our lives?
    CAP says: I use (I use what’s here and make the best out of it, I’m resourceful).
    The shadow would be to abuse, over-use, and the lack would be to under-use what’s sitting somewhere, and would be a helpful resource.
    Bottom line: Time for an inventory (LIBRA / CAP) / invent-ory (URANUS in ARIES).
  • Wisdom of the Body.
    The most obvious ‘earthly’ resource ‘close to us’ is our body, of course. Mid-CAP where PLUTO is now has also a TAURUS undertone – TAU rules bodily sensation.

    Don’t let yourself get de-stabilized from chaos and imbalance around (low grade experience of UR in AR). Find and stand your ground.
    So yeah, let’s definitely bring the wisdom of the body in, for wise choices, and empowering change, while being in our authentic Self!

 

JUPITER, on the brink of leaving LIBRA, will enter SCORPIO on Oct 10, to move through the Magical Zodiac zone until Nov 9, 2018.

JohfraBoschartLibra

Johfra Bosschart: VENUS rules LIBRA

The painting to the left by Johfra Bosschart contains a lot of esoteric symbolism.

I chose it to illustrate an important aspect of the transition from LIBRA to SCORPIO (upper part of the picture):

In the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Ibis-headed Thoth to the left with the double-serpent and Cow-headed Hathor to the right weigh the heart of the deceased (in an urn) against the feather of Ma’at (Goddess of Justice).
May in any significant choice point and transition our heart be unburdened, and as light as a feather!

 
The transition from LIBRA to SCORPIO is not only the ‘Tipping Point’ (the scales tip, the choice is being made – or it’s a ‘choiceless choice’! – and inevitably leads to change), but also an ‘Alchemy Point’ where ‘ingredients’ are ‘married’, to co-create something bigger than the sum of them.
If the ‘match’ is magical powerful change is afoot!
JUPITER into SCORPIO shows us opportunities to go into magical change – if we trust the Unknown.
 
Yet it also shows what’s hidden and covered, and makes it worthwhile visiting and digging deeply into our taboo, repressed, or emotionally (apparently) controlled experiences. To bring forth treasures that we might have buried from the world and ourselves. Who knows what comes from that?!
 
More to come, in a special JUPITER into SCORPIO blog post next week.
 
I felt called to offer JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Sessions, for the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

JUPITER opposes URANUS and PLUTO in CAP goes direct (Sept 27 / 28): Wise Choices in Authenticity. Wisdom of the Body. Authority of Natural Laws.

27 Sep

Hmmm, that’s a mouthful of a title…

Hopefully sums up what helps in dilemmas and choices we’re facing SO much these days, personally and collectively, choices of small and bigger impact, esp. since JUPITER is in LIBRA (SEPT 9, 2016 – OCT 10, 2017).

I say intentionally ‘Choices’ instead of ‘Decisions’ to balance out the masculine and also potentially disempowering language and experience of the word decision = “I have to”, which is also quite a narrow polarized dualistic  ‘this or that’ way of looking at things.

We do indeed have many choices – and are constantly exposed to lots of different avenues and approaches we can take. The gifts of our interconnected modern world. Which creates overwhelm too (TOOO much to choose from, is also what JUPITER in LIBRA can bring up).
SO,

  • What would be a wise choice now, given all the implications and people involved?
  • A choice / choices from a ‘higher vantage point’ (JUPITER expands our consciousness and sees things from an ‘Eagle Perspective’)?
  • A choice that supports balance in relationships, and synergy – everybody wins and grows (LIBRA / JUPITER)?
  • Choices that bring peace and harmony, yet not for its own sake / at anyone’s expense (JUPITER in SCORPIO would show where hidden agenda sits)?

 

JUPITER will be only 2 more weeks in LIBRA before it crosses over the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO on OCT 10!
Let’s choose wisely, since Choices lead to Change!
What’s the Change you wish to see / you’re born to be part of? Choose accordingly!

Maybe these days you have received help and perhaps unexpected divine intervention (JUPITER / URANUS) with choices?

URANUS in ARIES shakes things up to wake us up from a ‘too peaceful slumber’. 
Which helps you make new, fresh choices that change paradigms, and free up energy.

Life is NOW, says URANUS in ARIES. Why wait, why then – there – someday….
And YES, it’s YOUR Life. Don’t compromise, be fully and authentically YOU, in the choices you make! 
In the Freshness of the NOW, BE the One you’ve been waiting for!

Also in the Cosmic Equation:

PLUTO in mid-CAPRICORN goes from retro (since APR 20, a yearly pattern) again direct / forward from Earth perspective, tomorrow SEPT 28!
With the stationary PLUTO energy, SEPT and OCT 2017 are quite PLUTO months where a lot of purging and transformation takes place:

With PLUTO retro in CAP, we’ve been purging a lot of inner and old conditioning related to power and control, fear and (self) punishment, abuse, rejection, resentment, sense of failure (according to which standards?), and judgment.
SO much out there in the world – and in us…
THIS needs to move, and transmute into something else that’s a much better use of the CAP energy.

 

PLUTO sits almost between JUPITER and URANUS – a wide T-square, and is the catalyst for change, helping with wise choices in authenticity.


What does PLUTO in CAP point to and what can it change into?

  • The Power of TIME and Timeliness.
    How do we know when’s the ‘right & ripe time’? Astrology helps through showing us the cosmic cycles, and how to align with them. And natural inner knowing and alignment helps too. Don’t let yourself get pressured from external forces (“You should be already….”) in this ever so 24/7 production mode world (which isn’t really all that productive if natural cycles of rest and regenration aren’t honoured.
    So perhaps the Power of TIME means to slow down, smell the Roses, and let things ripen…?
  • Honouring the Elders, and Receiving Guidance.
    Elders may be biological Elders, Spirit Elders, the spirit of the ‘Old World’…
    Being guided by and to them can be very powerful if you hear the call (SATURN, the ruler of CAP is now in SAG, testing us to find where the most important YES is).
  • Working Well with Resources. Being Resourceful.
    Which ties into Time and Natural Laws…

    Working respectfully with the cycles of nature, incl. our own nature, the human life cycle and day-to-day cycles. CAP traditionally works with the Land and cooperates with Nature. When and where is a good time / place to seed / plant / harvest?
    There’s simplicity and beauty in this. Can we apply it again more into our lives?
    CAP says: I use (I use what’s here and make the best out of it, I’m resourceful).
    The shadow would be to abuse, over-use, and the lack would be to under-use what would be a helpful resource.
    So, bottom line: Time for an inventory / invent-ory.
  • Wisdom of the Body.
    The most obvious ‘earthly’ resource close to us is our body of course. Mid-CAP where PLUTO is now has also a TAURUS undertone – TAU rules bodily sensation.
    Don’t let yourself get de-stabilized from chaos and imbalance around (low grade experience of UR in AR). Find and stand your ground.

    So yeah, let’s definitely bring the wisdom of the body in for wise choices!

 

Goes well with the

Sabian Symbol for the degree where PLUTO goes direct / forward from tomorrow:

CAPRICORN 17°:
A REPRESSED WOMAN FINDS A PSYCHOLOGICAL RELEASE IN NUDISM.

KEYNOTE: The escape from bondage to social inhibitions and a reliance upon the wisdom of the body.

Under the pressure of religions that have created a sharp and unwholesome division between soul and body, society has produced strict codes of values regarding the play of natural instincts, and has glorified them under the name of “decency” and “modesty.” The growing trend toward nudism — which of course has nothing to do with the “pornographic” display of one’s body — is a welcome protest against the depressing and neurosis-generating puritanism of the past. Men and women are demanding a psychologically as well as physically healthful freedom of the body as a means of overcoming the hypocrisy and constrictions of social behavior.

In this second stage symbol we see how our society has been able to repress and distort the natural activity of the human body and its sensitivity to the elements. Thus a contrast is established between healthy youth at play and the neurotic subservience to a socio-religious tradition. The symbol is a call for RELEASE FROM INHIBITIONS.

Indeed, the Body is wiser than all the concepts and expectations superimposed on life.
Let’s free ourselves up to BE more embodied, and true to our Nature!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

 

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

 

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gifts of Astrology!
