Solar Eclipse July & August 2018

Raphaël VavasseurSolar Eclipse - Image by Raphaël Vavasseur

Hi Everyone, I wanted to give you all a heads up for the solar eclipse on the 11th of August. Like the July eclipse, it's 'only' partial but because it falls 30 days after, it's a 'double wave' or like some say, double whammy. It can really help to start leveraging the energy now. Check out the Yod, or 'finger of fate' aspect driving it. You want to know where this falls in your chart. Have a listen to the recording for details. GVA Members, you'll find a download link on the forum thread - Season of the Eclipse.

Abundance Through Astrology - Storytelling

duy_4Image - Duy Huynh

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the next call in the Abundance Through Astrology Course. This module is all about storytelling, as in, what you say to yourself about what is, and what will be. It's incredibly important, and here we'll be spending time learning why it matters, and how to use our own horoscopes start telling the story we want to unfold.

If you missed the introduction to Abundance Through Astrology  - Jupiter and Joy - be sure and have a listen. We also have an important pop quiz for identifying under expressed core values. If you haven't explored this yet, go to Abundance Through Astrology - Core Values.

Storytelling Step One

Our first step in this module's discussion is to fully understand what we mean by storytelling, how we do it automatically, all the time, and how we can edit our stories to better reflect what it is we want to create.

Listen here to Jeannette's introduction on this rich and powerful topic - Time For a Story Makeover?

Storytelling Step Two

Here Kim perspective on the power of using the chart to change our stories. It all starts with this awareness.

Storytelling and Your Ascendant

In this section of the course, we are going to go to our Ascendant, or Rising Sign, to better understand HOW to tell our new story. If you aren't sure if you know your rising sign or how to find it, follow this Simple Tutorial on How to Find Your Ascendant. If you still need help or confirmation, just ask! For those without a birth time, use your Solar House Ascendant (your sun sign). More experienced astro savvy members, you might want to also play with your Draconic Chart Ascendant.

Read your Ascendant (or *rising planet) below. This is a natural way for you to express in the world, and telling your story through the lens of the Asc can be a potent and exciting experience. Let us know how you are weaving your Ascendant style into your new story on the forum.

Aries Rising or Mars in the First House

Taurus Rising or Venus in the First House

Gemini Rising or Mercury in the First House

Cancer Rising or Moon in the First House

Leo Rising or Sun in the First House

Virgo Rising or Mercury in the First House

Libra Rising or Venus in the First House

Scorpio Rising or Mars OR Pluto in the First House

Sagittarius Rising or Jupiter in the First House

Capricorn Rising or Saturn in the First House

Aquarius Rising or Uranus in the First House

Pisces Rising or Neptune in the First House

Working with Any Ascendant Energy to Tell a Better Story

Storytelling and Your Ascendant Ruler

Our next tip for telling a powerful story that welcomes the abundance you're after is to check into the HOUSE that your Ascendant ruler occupies. If you know it off the bat, go straight to the recordings below; if you aren't sure what the heck I mean, you can work it out, step by step.

Example of an Ascendant and the Ascendant Ruler

Screen Shot 2018-06-12 at 3.02.25 pm1. The Planet ruling your Ascendant is the planet linked to the rising sign. They fall out like this:

Aries is ruled by Mars - Libra is ruled by Venus

Taurus is ruled by Venus - Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto

Gemini is ruled by Mercury - Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter

Caner is ruled by the Moon - Capricorn is ruled by Saturn

Leo is ruled by the Sun - Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus

Virgo is ruled by Mercury - Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune

2. Find which of the twelve HOUSES the planet ruling your Ascendant is in.

Learn the GLYPHS and the HOUSES

3. If you still aren't sure or need confirmation, give a shout out on the forum.

The house, or area of life, where you find the ruler of the Ascendant can offer wonderful support for your storytelling. When you have the chart ruler (the planet that rules your Ascendant) behind you, anything is possible!

Ruler of the Ascendant in the First House

Ruler of the Ascendant in the Second House

Ruler of the Ascendant in the Third House

Ruler of the Ascendant in the Fourth House

Ruler of the Ascendant in the Fifth House

Ruler of the Ascendant in the Sixth House

Uranus Breakthroughs in Taurus 2018 -2019

Let's celebrate the Uranus breakthroughs in Taurus, in orb all of 2018 to 2019. This auspicious change of signs happens on the 15th of May for the first time in eight-four years. It's a big fat whopping deal! Yet momentous as it is, upping awareness and self-reflection will bring the best results. You don't want to fall asleep in front of this train.

Uranus Breakthroughs in the 'Fall'

Uranus is in its FALL in Taurus. This has nothing to do with the seasons of the year, and everything to do with the way Uranus will express in your chart, and in the charts of nations.

Cripsen Korschen Uranus Breakthroughs Balance
Lovely Balance by Crispin Korschen

To understand why Taurus is the sign of Uranus' Fall, consider the desires of Uranus working out through Venus-ruled Taurus. What does he want, need and have to offer? The core values of Uranus include: to awaken, to shock, to be original, to be free, to revolt, rebel, reinvent. It's probably the most impersonal planet in the solar system.

Remember, the planets are the actors, the signs, the costumes they wear, the houses the stage or area of life and the aspects the scrips they read.

Now, think of what kind of costume Taurus give Uranus to wear. Words like sensual, seductive, expensive, alluring, practical, earthy, grounded, artistic, feminine, gentle, ostentatious, comfortable. Taurus is Venus ruled and of the body. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury and of the mind, intuition and higher realms of thought. In ancient mythologies, Uranus or Ouranos, is Father Sky, a creation god of perfection, and as such, he finds his earthly prodigy, the Titans, repulsive. Probably this theme represents the detachment of Uranus to the every day, and to the 'flawed'. The key to leveraging Uranus in Taurus include finding new ways to 'get real' and express 'practical genius', earthy innovation and abundances for everyone.

Uranus Breakthroughs When Last in Taurus - 1934 - 1943

In Taurus, Uranus operates through the world of matter, not his comfort zone.  Last time, a few things went askew, like the gold standard, the world economy and democracy abroad. Our relationship to prosperity changed as a result. Perhaps this is why some eccentric (Uranus) bank robbers (Taurus) like John Dillinger and Bonnie and Clyde hit the front page of newspapers at this time.

But in addition to the challenges, innovative changes appeared. Schrödinger's cat was first imagined as a way to explain the mind-bending contradictions of quantum mechanics. J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, or There and Back Again came out, shaping the Fantasy genre for the next eighty years, and beyond. President Roosevelt signed US Social Security and the Neutrality Act. Amelia Earhart flew solo across the Pacific, a rousing combination of technology (Uranus) and feminism (Taurus).

And, a personal favorite, the board game Monopoly was created. Leave it to Uranus (imaginary) in Taurus (money) to make a game of financial success and failure. Prohibition was overturned (freedom to be licentious?) with the 21st Amendment and the first proto-computer came online, the Z1, a room-sized machine able to store 1,400 bits of information. (The machine you’re using now sits in your lap and can hold 8.5 billion bits, by contrast.)

Other inventions of the last Uranus in Taurus transit include nylon, a synthetic (Uranus) garment (Taurus). Commonplace now, it was seen as something straight out of a SF future at the time, along with pinball machines, Kodachrome photography, color films and the Volkswagen Beetle. Not all doom and gloom!

Face the Sun by Crispin Korschen

Quotes for Uranus Breakthroughs in Taurus

As feminism rallied after the success with suffrage, powerful, creative and revolutionary women spoke out.

1. "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

2. "Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It's beyond me." -  Zora Neale Hurston

3. "I don't breed in captivity." - Gloria Steinem, when asked about her personal views on marriage. She was born in 1934 with Uranus on the cusp of Aries/Taurus.

4. "Men and women, here and now, are able to exert their wills; they are not pawns and puppets dancing on a string held by invisible hands. They can act, and think for themselves. Perhaps even they can influence other people's thoughts and actions." - -Virginia Woolfe

5. "Too often little attention is paid to individual talent. Instead, education goes on dividing people according to their sex..." - Amelia Earhart

Where will you experience your Uranus Breakthroughs?

Think of Uranus as one of the most exciting planets to work with in deliberate creation where we blast through glass ceilings and break out of limiting beliefs. It’s insanely powerful energy and we'll be talking about this more on May 15th, TIME - 6 pm EDT. For now, here are some ideas to explore.

Some have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to,
when all they need is one reason why they can. -Martha Graham, dancer.

AriesARIES: Uranus breakthroughs operate in your second house of core values and sense of ‘wealth’ $$ and abundance. What is it, inner and outer, that makes you feel secure? When things go topsy-turvy, you know you're on the right track.

TaurusTAURUS: This is your sun sign, the most potent Uranian transit of your life. It lights up all four corners of your world, self-expression, home, career and partnership. It’s the perfect time to set new intentions, putting energy into YOU and what you want to create.

GeminiGEMINI: Taurus is your natural house of dreams and immersion in the collective. It’s a time of synchronicity, meaning and serendipitous connections. You will be generating new enthusiasm for a Uranus Breakthrough years ahead. Muse, create, allow.

CancerCANCER: Time to explore new connections, friendships and links with like-minded others. This energy wants tangible results so remember the ancient motto – to have a friend, be a friend. Let go of what is no longer true to you and explore new horizons.

LeoLEO: If you're not in the career or spotlight of your dreams, kiss the status quo goodbye. Disruptive at first, this transit is all about realigning with authenticity.  So, ask: are you doing what you love? The answer will define the next seven years! Be honest.

VirgoVIRGO: Time to get out of the house, away from the grind and out into the world. You are primed to taste, touch and smell the sunrise, view the sights and hear every new sound, idea and concept. Travel, explore, expand. Point your feet in a revolutionary direction.

LibraLIBRA: Joint partnerships, especially where finances are concerned, go through major transformations. You decide how you want things to be. It’s time to stop relying on outmoded business models for your shared resources. Intend for them to accelerate out of this world.

ScorpioSCORPIO: Emotional freedom to be yourself in all your relationships is the breakthrough you're after. Taurus puts the spotlight on intimacy, Uranus on liberty, meaning you will want to find new balance. Take a moment to imagine things the way you want. And so it begins . . .

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: All the taken for granted things of the household, studio, office, your pets, plants and plans, include gym, nutrition and well-being, require new energy, attention, revolution even. Over the next seven years, put your mind on the ways and means you accomplish your will.

CapricornCAPRICORN: A childlike creative impulse infuses you, giving you the Midas Touch when it comes to creative self-expression. Don’t be embarrassed! It’s natural for you to be more playful now. Set aside some time for fun and carefree expenditure of energy for best results.

AquariusAQUARIUS: Uranus in Taurus is your cue to put attention inward, into your emotional core, the home, family and sense of 'ground' and stability. Evaluate, appreciate and make repairs, or plan rebellions, where necessary. This sets the stage for fabulous results over the next seven years

piscesPISCES: Uranus in Taurus through your communications sector has you spouting genius innovations and honing them down to practical use. i.e., cut to the chase. Your words are even MORE powerful creators of your future. Say what you mean; mean what you say.

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Home Sweet Home Call 2 & 3. What great discussions!

You can access the HSH call 2 HERE.
pdf_downlaodChat notes with links to the charts we discussed.

You can access the HSH call 3 HERE.
pdf_downlaodChat notes with links to the charts we discussed.

Go to the Astrology and Manifesting post to talk about:

  • Manifesting more fulfilling relationships
  • More $$ and security
  • Manifesting a book deal :)
  • Making more peace
  • Manifesting what you want!

HSH Call 2 Content

In HSH Call 2 we explored the dynamics between the ruler of the IC (the 4th house cusp) and the Moon. So revealing. In many cases they are not aligned by element or modality, or aspect. Understanding the diverse needs via the horoscope allows us to connect with our true core values, even if they seem to contrast one another. When we love ourselves via both moon and IC, the inner romance is genuine, we feel nurtured and energy flows. Deliberate creation success skyrockets too! If you want to explore your chart in this way, or talk about PLANETS in the 4th HOUSE, post your thoughts below.

Homework for HSH Call 2

Our next step in exploring self-love for the soul is to look at transits to the 4th house. I know a few of you with Capricorn on the cusp of the 4th, for example, will have Saturn transiting there for the next 2.5 years following Pluto who has been there much longer. Scorpio IC means a Jupiter transit to the 4th. Pisces means Neptune will transit there, Aries/Taurus means Uranus. If you have an Aquarius IC then the recent eclipses have been in your 4th house.

We will also look at transits to the moon and the position of the progressed moon. 

If you aren't sure what transits and progressions are, watch these video tutorials - Transits part 1 & Transits part 2.

Create your chart online with the transits and progressions

Here are the steps for creating your natal chart wheel with the current transits and progressions.

1. Go to Astro.com and once your chart data is in, click Extended Chart Selection

6. Save the .gif file and download to your computer as you would any image

7. Upload the image to the GVA Gallery.

HSH Call 3 will dive into your transits/progressions to the 4th house, the ruler of the IC, your Moon and ruler of the moon. Let's get started here!

Love to hear your thoughts in the comments.


Home Sweet Home - Self-Love for the Soul

ConfettiSkyImage by Karla Gerard

Hi everyone, on this page, Home Sweet Home - Self Love for the Soul, we're going to talk about topics on the call, and look at ways to boost our self-love when it comes to the 4th house.

Recordings and notes for Calls #2 & #3

Self-Love for the Soul

Finding the best way to bring love to the soul often isn't through our Ascendant sign, or MC, or even the 7th house of 'others'. It rises up around the core values of the IC and the 4th house. This is also called the "I don't see". A place where we like to retreat to for safety and comfort. Now, if that place is ruled by Mars or Uranus, it will be a different kind of sanctuary to one ruled by the moon or Venus.

Remember, the 4th house on an OUTER level is the home. On an INNER level, it's the soul.

It also represents a parent (the hidden parent?) family (tribe), lineage, real estate agents, home, family, ancestors, emotional ground. Hidden processes, drives. These are NOT the things we show in our "shop window" the Ascendant, or our Public Identity (the MC).

To check into this brand of self-love, think about the sign on your IC. Your 4th house cusp. What would make that sign, and it's ruling planets smile. Ahh.....

Self-Love for the Soul by Sign and Decan

Let's continue the discussion by looking at each of our charts to explore self-love for the IC and also for the Moon. Do they align? Contrast?

To take the Astrology deeper, let's look at the degree of the IC and the Moon by Decan. What ruling planet is added, or simply emphasized?

Brush up on decans here. Let's talk about this deeper detail in terms of self-Love.

For more self-love alignment, and help with self-talk, this short post by Jeannette is perfect: Self-Love Alignment Spell

Try saying "I love that about me!" next time you feel embarrassment, shame or self-judgment.

Perhaps the reason this little sentence works so well is because it returns us to our truth – that we are complete, whole and perfect just as we are.

In the comments

Pop your thoughts in the comments. I'll give it a go with my high contrast Scorpio IC and Aquarius Moon. I think Jeannette asked about Scorp on the call, and we didn't get to it. (haha, my unconscious avoidance of my own I don't see?)

Last Call for 2017

Last Call for 2017

Last Call for 2017
Image by Michiel Schrijver

Hi All,

Here is the PDF Chat for the call. You'll find links to the charts we talked about and some really great gems for Saturn into Cappy.

You can access the call on Talkshoe. Or, listen to it and/or download from here:

Of course, we'll be talking about how and WHEN to set new intentions for 2018 as well so please join us, or listen to the recording. At this point, it's set for Talkshoe but as some of you know, there have been interesting time warps happening over at the old TS. If you are trying to access calls and courses posted there but run into a 404 message, please email us and we'll do our best to help. Talkshoe assures us they are working around the clock to restore any lost calls. Thank you, Talkshoe!

Topics for the last call for 2017

Last_Call_2017We'll look at Mercury Rx in action and see what's happening for you in your Sagittarius house. Reflecting? Slowing down? Releasing tolerations? Jeannette and I have techniques for you to align with this powerful re-calibration device we call Mercury Rx.

On the Day, Saturn goes into Capricorn for the first time in 29 years. It's one of his HOME signs, (the other being Aquarius) so think of strength, integrity, structure and ambition in your Cappy house or houses. We have 2.5 years to leverage this energy, so let's do it right (ie Saturn style).

We've had a few members request a review of scripting and the power of  the story we tell. Jeannette's going to give us an example of how we actually can CHANGE another person (or at least, how they are around us).

Will we talk about wishes for 2018 and setting strong intentions. You bet, but not on December 31 or January 1. Looking at the retrograde and eclipse patterns of 2018 will help us all align with the most powerful manifesting momentum.

Bring your charts and see you there!

Mars and Empowerment

The King of Wands by Stephanie Pue-Mun Law King of Wands by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Hi everyone, this post is for our call on Mars and Empowerment. The call is here:

Links are here, on the Call Chat PDF.

Let's start with a quick quiz

Rate on a Scale of 1 – 5
I take care of myself, physically, emotionally, financially
I’m my own boss at home
I’m my own boss at work
I say it like it is
I don’t give a rip what others think
I do whatever I like, when I like, how I like.
***
I’m in a partnership
I share the decision-making processes at home
I collaborate at work
I speak diplomatically
I say what I feel other people want to hear/ or are capable of hearing

You can probably tell which two planets we are testing for here - Venus and Mars, right? To explore empowerment, we really need to look at Mars in all his forms.

Mars is raw, animated energy. It represents the force that gets us out of bed in the morning, staking claims, winning battles and achieving whatever it is we want. Vital in our ability to move through each day, natal and transiting placement of this planet can be used as a physical energy gauge, suggesting just how much dynamic force we need to wield and where. Mars is healthy aggression, keeping us out of victim mode, but Mars also links to accidents, burns, cuts, and violent outbursts, selfish, impulsive and rash behavior.

Most of the challenging expressions (for our culture) of Mars result from frustrated energy, when we can’t get our way, be assertive or initiate desires. Mars wants take action, find an outlet and often the form of expression needs to be physical. With links to the flight/fight response, Mars equate directly with increased adrenal activity. Once activated, the only way to burn the stress off is (usually) physical.

Is Mars a tool for alignment?

Jeannette talked recently about the Beauty of Anger - "The fact is I’m still getting some juice from anger right now in this red hot moment, and I’m hanging out here as long as it feels good and certainly long enough to fuel incentive for positive change. If it didn’t bother me this much, I might not notice it and I might not change it. (“It” being my relationship.) So this anger is a good thing. It’s got my attention!"

Abraham states that anger (Mars) is only a problem when resisted. Check out the emotional scale. How many of these feelings are linked to Mars?

The Emotional Guidance Scale

1. Joy/Appreciation/Empowered/Freedom/Love
2. Passion
3. Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness
4. Positive Expectation/Belief
5. Optimism
6. Hopefulness
7. Contentment
8. Boredom
9. Pessimism
10. Frustration/Irritation/Impatience
11. Overwhelment
12. Disappointment
13. Doubt
14. Worry
15. Blame
16. Discouragement
17. Anger
18. Revenge
19. Hatred/Rage
20. Jealousy
21. Insecurity/Guilt/Unworthiness
22. Fear/Grief/Depression/Despair/Powerlessness

Bashar treats Mars (anger) as an alignment tool, saying that it shows we have new awareness. Putting that awareness on how we are feelings -frustrated, restless, aggressive- is a chance to become happier (like knowing what we are tolerating and finding ways to release resistance to it).

The Rabbi Hillel said: If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?”

The balance of Mars and Venus

You can see from the quiz at the top we're looking at a balance between Venus/Libra (love) and Mars/Aries (will).

These two signs/planets are a natural polarity, two ends of the same stick.  They illustrate the battle between will and willingness, give and take, self and other.  Mars and Aries orient towards self-awareness where Venus and Libra orient towards awareness of the valued significant other.  When Mars wants to dominate and win control, Venus wants to share, give and receive. How to find balance so we experience both in the world we manifest?

Check where Mars and Venus are in the natal chart, and by transit, and then, tell a new story. What you are saying about your Mars and Venus, your love and will expression is creating your experience of it. If you don't like it, try saying something new.

Address tolerations. The basic steps are:

  1. Delete it (decide it doesn’t have to be done after all)
  2. Delegate it (put someone else in charge of it)
  3. Do it (just get it over with, once and for all)
  4. Dance with it (transform how you experience it)

Read more deeply here on Jeannette's Blog.

Mars, Stress and the Four Elements

Some people have a high threshold for stress and anger than others. To demonstrate, consider how the four elements might react to aggression

Fire signs can thrive on excitement, risk and danger. They don’t often mind being kept on the edge. This element has a high tolerance for stress and may not respond negatively to loads that would cripple others. An accent on fire signs in the natal chart makes challenge and conflict a welcome stimulation.

Earth signs tend to abhor the stress of change, especially when sudden and unexpected. There is a desire to experience life through the senses, meeting events in steady, predictable and enduring ways. An emphasis of earth in the natal chart makes project planning, productivity and tangible results a must.

Air signs tend to handle moderate levels of stress and the pressure of deadlines. The more there is to do, the more they get done. An accent on air in the natal chart may welcome high-tension, social environments that require quick and varied intellectual responses.

Water signs take on the nuance and character of their environment, having semi-permeable boundaries. Their personal stress levels can reflect the energy of those around them. An emphasis of water in the natal chart often indicates someone who can cope with emotional turbulence and the inner needs and demands of others.

Saturn Trine Uranus

Hoisting-Our-Dreams-Into-The-Light-Of-Another-SunImage by Paul Bond

Saturn Trine Uranus - Stability meets excitement...

GVA Members access the recording here.

The Astro Clock I was raving about on the call is HERE.

The transit of Saturn trine Uranus is exact for the last time in this cycle on November 11th, bring to a conclusion the phase of energy that began December 2016. Here are the dates and degrees. Times are EDT.

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 1.27.43 pm

 

 

This transit last occurred in 2003 with Saturn in Cancer and Uranus in Pisces. The next trine will be in 2047 with Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Virgo.

What to Expect with Saturn trine Uranus

Saturn is the ground we stand on, the containment, and our defense (immunity, strength, endurance). Express it fully and we tap into ancient wisdom, power and ambition to be all that we can. He rules the tried and true. Where Saturn is in the chart, we have the opportunity to be more than. A chance to find an authentic sense of worthiness and accomplishment.

Uranus is the rebel, the great awakener, the urge for change, freedom, excitement and autonomy. It's trickster energy that creates growth through chaos and surprise. He rules the unknown, the edge of extreme where we do things for ourselves alone. Where Uranus is in the chart we long to tip the apple cart, pull the rug out from under our feet and experience genius breakthrough.

The two in the 120 degree trine aspect brings solid knowing and the fresh winds of change. Suddenly energy is available to create what we want, blast through set points or perceived obstacles, try new things that can be incorporated into a solid and sturdy structure.

WHERE this lands in your chart by house, where you have 25 Sagittarius and 25 Aries, indicates the area of life most likely to be receptive to the blast of creative evolution.

Jupiter into Scorpio

Listen to the Call where we talk about Jupiter in Scorpio and what it means to you.

Chat PDF

Jupiter into Scorpio

As an astrological archetype, Jupiter is know as the ‘Greater Benefic' expanding horizons. In Scorpio, think expansion of authentic feelings.

Almost anybody can learn to think or believe or know, but not a single human being can be taught to feel. Why? Because whenever you think or you believe or you know, you’re a lot of other people: but the moment you feel, you’re nobody-but-yourself. –Laura Riding

Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and is symbolic of large scale experiences. That's big wins, big times, big love. You get the picture. He is yang, optimistic, popular, expansive and generous. Happy!

Jupiter is anything that lifts our hopes, helps us aim high and shows us new horizons. But what’s really going on when we experience this energy is we begin to believe in ourselves. That’s what makes it happen.

The power of the vibrations of confidence, commitment and belief . . . can turn dark horses into champions, long shots into heroes and underdogs into top dogs.Jeannette Maw

Confidence means you believe in yourself and where Jupiter in Scorpio transits symbolizes where we can amp up that belief and make things bigger. Larger than life.

If it’s in your 5th house of romance, you’ll vibe self assured when meeting that hottie you’ve been ‘living’ to talk to. Suddenly your creative life is on fire. Why? Because you believe.

Jupiter in the 10th house can amplify the career. You might wake up with the confidence to walk out of a deadbeat job and land the one of your dreams. Belief in yourself breeds trust and respect, even a bit of awe!

Have a look at where Jupiter in Scorpio is transiting in your natal chart and let the sun shine in.

Questions, examples and comments welcome.


Call #4 - Dream Come True Astrology

Image by by LaveryART

Hi Everyone, Welcome to Call #4 in Dream Come True Astrology.

 

audioListen to Call #4

 

Review

Call #1 we looked at Saturn and manifesting asking,"Where am I at with ‘reality’." It's a check in to where we perceive our limitations to be and ways to leverage Saturn in the chart, natal and transit, to boost manifesting skills.

Call #2 dives into the sea of Neptunian bliss, releasing resistance and experiencing effortless creation. To do that, we engage the though experiment based on the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. The steps are very simple:

  1. Choose a ‘reality’ that you focus on.
  2. When you think of this ‘reality’ don’t DO anything about it. Just notice it.
  3. Be aware of how many times a day you are noticing by jotting it down

That’s it. More details on the Call #2 Post.

Call #3 we look at Uranus, exploring a healthy relationship to change. It all starts by putting awareness on your natural comfort levels with this topic. What happens when things start to shift?

Call #4

This call is about Pluto and transformation. We are going to use the chart as a focus wheel  of transiting Pluto. This will support our greatest expansion and transformation via the LOA technique of focusing.

Download a blank wheel from the gallery.

  1. click on link
  2. right click
  3. save image as ...

We'll be using the blank wheel for call #4 first by simply plotting in where  transiting Pluto is, by house.

See you on the call, or back here afterwards for all the details.

If you are new to astrology, check out the Essentials course Planets Part Two, and the Astrology for Deliberate Creators Call # 5.

Creating and Uploading your Focus Wheel for Call #4

Here are the steps for those who want to create a Pluto Focus Wheel.

  1. Download the BLANK WHEEL and print (for hand drawn) or open in your image editing software for digital drawing
  2. Draw in you house cusps that include 17 Capricorn. i.e. the cusp before 17 Cappy and the cusp after
  3. Plot in transiting Pluto
  4. Plot in any natal planets or points in aspect to 17 Capricorn

Here's my Pluto Focus Wheel as an example. I did it digitally, but you can draw it by hand then scan or photograph and upload.

FocusWheel_PlutoIf you have any questions, just shout out.

If you need help finding the transits, let me know and I'll help.

See you on the call!

Karma Course Homework #4

Welcome to Karma Course Homework #4

First of all, for those of you who were on the call, thanks for being patient. There was a dropout at the end, but I returned. Be sure to listen past Jeannette's sign off to hear my take on Fred's Nodes in the 5th and the 11th. The PDF with links to the charts is here.

Before you start the homework, be sure to listen to the call. It is available with the entire series for DL or listening on Talkshoe.

Call #4 Homework Resources

Other references mentioned include the post on the NODES, the Youtube Tutorial on the Nodes, the full lecture discussion on the nodes form Module 5  – Reveal Your Rock Star Entrepreneur.

In addition, check out this fabulous technique from Dr Hawkins on decreasing effort and using INTENTION to release a karmic pattern, habit or addiction. You don't try to DO anything. All that is required is you Notice it. That's all. Make a mental note and write it down - no judgment.

Awareness alone will diminish the thought, habit pattern or karmic rut. Effortlessly, the heisenberg's principle will apply. "Let the Field do the work," as Dr Hawkins says.

David R. Hawkins - The Heisenberg's Principle

#4 Homework

I'd like you all to tell the story of your journey from South Node (a past life experience, family pattern or way of being) to your North Node, what you are becoming fabulous at now. This is where you can tell it like you want it to be, so let it sing.

See you in the comments, and any questions you have can go there as well.

Thanks, everyone.

I am loving this journey.

Karma Course Homework #3

Image by Crispin Korschen
Image by Crispin Korschen

Hi everyone, thanks so much everybody who dialed in for the call. If you missed it, or want to listen again, the recording is on the Karma Course TalkShoe page. Bookmark it or ‘follow’ the course for quick and easy access. In the call we talked about the stories we tell, and I wanted to mentioned again several articles/audios for reference.

  1. Tell a New Story - the example chart is the writer Octavia Buttler
  2. Using the Chart to prep for 2017 - one hour Audio
  3. The Tale of Two Vibrations
  4. How to Break a Bad Story

Let's all support each other by observing (not judging) when we spot a story, perhaps asking, "Is there another story here?"

Jeannette says -

"If you find yourself drawn to repeat the version you don’t like, it may just be law of attraction calling you back to it. (That’s what law of attraction does.) Resolving the situation is just a matter of consciously creating new momentum by engaging a different thought/story.

It could also be that you’re getting some benefit from telling the unwanted version, so you don’t really truly intend to leave it behind. (Like if I keep talking about how all the good guys are taken, then I never risk rejection or failure in a new relationship."

Let's explore what some of the pay offs are of STAYING in a story/pattern. Just notice what they might be, no judgment. We'll talk more about this on the next call.

Homework #3 Discussion

  1. Listen to Call #3 if you haven’t already
  2. Find a story you are telling. Observe it. Tell a different one, if you want to, one that is equally true.
  3. Consider the ideas of Karma, Dharma and Desire as discussed on the call. Can you see these elements at work in any aspect or placement in your chart?
  4. Spot your Saturn, "Lord of Karma" and describe what it is you really plan on being awesome at! Tell a story that supports that energy.

You know by now that these are not exercises in ‘looking for trouble’ because we will find whatever it is we are looking for. Instead, set the INTENTION of discovery, lightness, curiosity and choice. Are there any new insights into your habit patterns or perceptions coming up?

You put your answers here, in the comments, in part or full, or work on your own, whatever feels best.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Thanks, everyone, and Happy New Moon!

This is where we will be posting questions, adding our comments on any charts offered up for viewing and posting insights into the homework. Basically, anything related to the course can go here.

Listen to past calls here

If you share thoughts or questions about your chart, be sure to link to the horoscope so we can give it a look. It wants to be set up as per the Prep and placed in the Course Examples gallery. Thanks!

Karma Course Library & Chat Homework

I'll post the homework here shortly after each call. Your first step to do before hand is list three things you’d like to change in your life, as per the Prep for the Karma Course page. Some of us have posted our lists there already, which is great, but you don't need to share them if you'd rather not. They are for you, and your inner work.

Quotes & Definitions to Ponder

Astro and LOA Perspective

“Astrology is not meant to be a primarily predictive science.  It is meant to be for understanding ourselves and others. There is nothing in a horoscope that you cannot change, if you want to. The chart contains the stories of the cycles and rhythms you are going through. It shows your character.  You can read it the day a child is born; you can tell what they have brought over as a blessing and what they have brought over as a challenge.  But that is only the personality pattern.  Behind the personality lies your real self, and you center yourself in that essential thing.

We are vibrationally connected to everything that happens to us.  There is only one way we can change our life, and that is by changing our attitude toward it; changing our consciousness.  This is a cosmic law that few people know.  By changing your attitude, one of two things has to happen.  Either the person or the problem will be completely removed without any harm to anyone, or that person or problem will change so much that you will be able to live with it very easily" --Isabel Hickey (1960s)

Eternal Return & Karma

“To endure the idea of the recurrence one needs: freedom from morality; new means against the fact of pain (pain conceived as a tool, as the father of pleasure...); the enjoyment of all kinds of uncertainty, experimentalism, as a counterweight to this extreme fatalism; abolition of the concept of necessity; abolition of the "will"; abolition of "knowledge-in-itself." – Nietzsche

"Thoughts are the seed of Karma, very powerful seed. The seed in its seed status is very potent. …the vibrations (of the Karma) go out in thought and deed and return from the wall, from the sun, from millions of miles. Vibration finds it’s match." --Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

The Continuity Principle

It's simple. You get very good at something in this lifetime and next lifetime, they say things like, “Oh, a savant! They're a natural! What a genius!" Reincarnation explains the wide variety of abilities even from those who are genetically similar or have the same upbringing. It's like nature, nurture, karma. :) Of course, if you are ingrained in a patter that you won't move beyond, that comes trough too. The horoscope shows both of these, and so much more.

Using LOA/awareness of Karma to 'Fix' Things doesn't Work

Think of karma as like-aligning-with-like so that we have the full range of human experience, every emotions, every action, every thought, every feeling.

Using law of attraction to fix something 'wrong' in our lives won’t work, and the same goes for Karma. As soon as you label an experience as ‘wrong' or' bad’ you vibrate ‘wrong/bad’ and attract more of it.

Jeannette puts it like this:

“…if your signal to the universe says something is “wrong,” like your body, or bank account, or marriage – it can only return more of that.”

Read more about this here … Law of Attraction Isn’t for Fixing

Homework For Call #1

Identify your 12th house sign and ruler and discuss the “self-sustaining vs. self-undoing " expressions.

If you have duplicated signs on the 12th and 1st, or an intercepted sign in the 12th, put your hand/chart up for discussion in the comments.

Find your ruler of the 12 (usually sign on the 12th house cusp but may be the sign behind – both. What house, sign and aspects does it have.

Where the 12th house ruler is, you may 'meet' your karma (the thoughts and feelings that you sent out into the world that are coming back to you) face on. In my example on the call, the ruler of the 12th is in the 10th. The public, limelight, or even a parent/father would be key areas of karma coming home to me. The house your 12th ruler is in is a prominent place to experience past life vibrations (karma). Here we meet the past patters, and what will sustain or undo us, depending on our  alignment with that house. It's a vibration, a perspective you can choose to expand, change, drop judgement on.

Note any planets in the 12th.

Think about what you discover above in relationship to your ‘three patterns or things you want to change/focus on.

Reread your list. Is there judgment there?

Can you approach the patters/goals/desires from a perspective of experience as opposed to something that has to be changed, augmented, diminished, fixed, healed or redeemed-transcended? Is there something at the core of the desire you want to experience?

pdf_downlaodPlanetary Dignities: This is a chart and description of the Planetary Powers or 'rulership dignitaries'. In some signs, the power of a planet (energy) is able to flow without any kinks because it is in a natural alignment with that sign. In other signs, it is more convoluted, because the energy of the planet is contrasting or resistant to the nature of the sign.

 

On the next call ...

We will discuss everything we discover in the Call #1 homework, look at examples and explore the next segment (the aspects of contrast).

Questions? Comments? Pop them in below, or save them for the the next call APRIL 4th @7pm Eastern. :)

Thanks for being here!
