The Lunar Phases and How to Use Them – Part 1

The Lunar Phases and How to Use Them – Part 1

I think today is a great day to begin to talk about the Cycles of the Moon. Funny that we call it the Lunar Phases, or the Moon Cycles when it is really the relationship between the Sun and the Moon that is being discussed. The Moon does not go through the visual changes we see on her own. It is  through her  relationship with the energy and the light of the Sun that changes how we see the shape of the Moon throughout the month. Understanding these Cycles and learning how to use them, provides...

The Moon – Development of Kindness

published Jan 5, 2013 Today we are going to consider the soft emotions of empathy, compassion, affection, receptivity, and kindness as it relates to the house placement of the MOON in our horoscopes.

Love

Love After Love written by Derek Walcot The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other's welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the...

Gratitude and Blessings for the Ordinary Day

Gratitude and Blessings for the Ordinary Day

First Published September 11, 2010 Each morning as we wake, what are our expectations for the day? Do we look forward to all the wondrous things that may occur or do we worry about the unhappy moments or the terrible things that may happen throughout the day? Perhaps we think about the sign the Moon is in and what aspects are happening that will highlight different energies that we can use throughout the day. Today let's consider having an ordinary day. Looking back over the years there really...

Flexibility – Transformation

Flexibility – Transformation

  We are passing through such amazing times! What has prepared us for this? Is it possible to understand more deeply? To see the patterns in our behavior from a more universal perspective? Can we allow the transformation that is occurring unimpeded? Be the bending branch of the willow tree! Bend with the wind, with the tornado, with the hurricane. How strong we are equals how flexible we are.  We can open our eyes and be more aware of the patterns, watch them in those around us; feel them...

Elements, &Compatibility

Pay attention to the simple motion of the MOON through the signs.  If we are paying attention we are able to anticipate the underlying Mood of our days. As we watch, the Moon (along with the general mood) drifts through one sign after another, creating observable patterns. Every 2.5 days the Moon shifts into another sign. The order of the Signs is as follows: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. The Elements tell us a great...

Seeing Yourself Clearly

Seeing Yourself Clearly

In order to make any lasting change in ourselves, we need to have a clear understanding of who we are. We need to look under the cover and protection of the ego. We must come to understand and make clear distinctions between who we are and the ego we have constructed around ourselves. It is easy to become attached to the image that we present to the world, it is not so easy to see who is deeply buried underneath that construction! Who are we? How do we learn to see ourselves clearly? The...

Learning Life, Understanding Self

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...

Individuation – True Inner Freedom

Individuation – True Inner Freedom

The purpose and the significance of astrology is not to tell us what, or whom we will meet along the corridors and pathways of our lives. What astrology can tell us is how to approach each crossroad along these paths we travel. Astrology can point us toward an understanding of why the road leads us in the direction we find ourselves moving in. It can show us the areas of our lives that will be activated at different times and what types of energies and strengths are needed to find the shortest...

The Cycle of Life: Reality

The Cycle of Life: Reality

  As we watch our lives reflected in the movement of the planets against the back-drop of our horoscope, we finally stop cursing our fate. We begin to perceive the inevitability of the cyclic nature of life. Our lives proceed no differently than the cycles of the Moon! Birth - Crisis - Challenge - Fulfillment - Teaching - Decline - Letting go - Death We respond to these cycles in our lives as though the circumstances of our lives were under our control and deeply personal. We are elated...
