Learning Life, Understanding Self

More and more of my clients are expressing a desire to learn astrology.

Rather than depending on an astrologer to interpret the charts for them, many folks are realizing that they would like to learn, understand, and work with this language themselves.

I love to teach and am thrilled to take on new students! It takes time and dedication to understand this language, and along the way there is a constantly growing self understanding!

Folks can experience a huge shift in their lives due to the understanding that astrology brings. When we come to understand our horoscope it opens windows of perception in our minds that can never be closed again.

Once those windows begin to open we become hungry for more! We are able to see different things within ourselves that we can no longer hide from.  We encounter our deepest issues, our deepest vulnerabilities; we encounter the best and the worst of our true, honest selves.

The understanding that astrology offers is non-judgemental. This self understanding is full of self-love and self-compassion. As we understanding our horoscopes we encounter ourselves directly without filter. We are able to see the reality of who we are underneath all the anxiety and conversation layered over ourselves. We can see all that we have to work with and all that we need to work on. 

There is no where to hide from our biggest flaws and our deepest goodness. We not only have to face the worst in ourselves but we must also look honestly at the soft tender heart of love and goodness that is there within, just waiting to be discovered! 

I am thrilled to work with new students. Send me a note if you are interested!

Monday, November 5, 2012:

The day begins with the MOON still VOC* as she continues through the moody, sensitive land of CANCER. We may feel sluggish and moody wishing we had one more day before heading back to work.

The energy shifts, rather dramatically, as the MOON enters the hot fiery sign of LEO at 2:39pm EST. With the MOON IN LEO we want to get out of the home and family cocoon we were so happy in yesterday!  We want dynamic warmth, charm, and a bit of pizzazz. 

We are painfully aware of the big day tomorrow (if we live in the US) and the internal and external drama may heat up,  adding stress and anxiety to our evening.  We are so ready for this to be over, to buckle down to the real work we (as a culture) know is required regardless of who is in power. 

Tomorrow Mercury turns Retrograde. Many people dread these times. I certainly think Mercury retrograde can be a problem for certain situations – such as its start coinciding with the US presidential election!

For our personal lives, Mercury retrograde is to be embraced, not dreaded.

Tomorrow we will talk about how to use Mercury retrograde in your favor. After working with these cycles for many years, I have learned to love these times. I truly look forward to Mercury retrograde and find it to be some of the most productive times! More on that later! 

*The Moon is considered to be VOC(Void of Course) when it has made all the Ptolemaic aspects (conjunction, square, opposition, trine, sextile) (to other planets) while in a sign until it enters the next sign.
