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!

Karma Course Homework #2

Crispin Korschen
Crispin Korschen

Hi everyone, thanks so much everybody who dialed in for the call. If you missed it, the recording is on the TalkShoe page. Bookmark it or 'follow' the course for quick and easy access.

If anyone wants to continue to explore their 12th house, intercepted signs and 12th house ruler(s), please post one Karma Course Homework #1.

Homework #2 Discussion

  1. Listen to Call #2 if you haven't already
  2. Find your Moon and/or Venus by sign and house
  3. Note any aspects of contrast  - square, opposition, conjunctions, semi-squares, inconjuncts etc to outer planets
  4. Think of three possible 'Karmic' meanings for the connection
  5. Contemplate on what that means to you now, in this lifetime.

This is not an exercise in 'looking for trouble' because we all know that we find whatever it is we are looking for. Instead, set the INTENTION of lightness, curiosity and discovery. What insights into your habit patterns or perceptions can you gain?

Example Homework #2

Following on with the lunar example (Kim's chart) on the call, here is one way we might see Venus in contrasting aspect, especially to Saturn or maybe Pluto. The square aspect might coincide with disappointment, at first, around relationship, or trouble finding the relationship of our dreams. The predominate thought might be "love never lasts." Or, "Relationships never work out." Or even, "Relationships are hell."

If there is difficulty like this, or with our relationship to our bodies, family, friends, it might be one of three, or more, things from a Karmic perspective.

  1. We've been too identified with relationships in the past and now we are learning to be more ourselves, more individuated. We can't really 'dissolve' our identity into another because our vibration intention is to learn who we are in our own right. The habit patter is over identification, over attachment.
  2. We found relationships very challenging in the past (lives) and have declared to the universe "I don't ever want to have a relationship again." This is an aspect of DESIRE/Goals that we haven't talked about yet, but your specific desires for a lifetime will influence what you experience. You probably won't be able to go a whole eternity without relationship, but it can be in play for a while, UNTIL YOU DECIDE TO CHANGE IT. This is all free will here. Your vibration. Your experience.
  3. We may have not been appreciative of relationships in the past. Maybe we took them for granted, overpowered the other person, was critical or judgmental, or even dismissive and now that vibration is home to roost.

NONE OF THESE ARE CARVED IN STONE. With love and awareness, you can transform any reason, any vibration, but it must begin with pulling it out of the unconscious and bringing it to light.

So, let's take a look at our charts, with the focus on Moon, body, love, emotions and Venus, body, love relationships, creativity, sexuality.

Remember to go gently with yourself, in kindness, respect and love.

It all begins there!

xxxKim

Karma Course Homework #1

Crispin Korschen
Crispin Korschen

bee-705412_640Hi everyone, welcome to our Karma Course Library & Chat

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. You do want to have that list for your first call homework though, so take time now to write them down, if you haven't already.

Astrological References  (this list will no doubt grow)

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!

Prep for Karma Course

Prep for the Karma Course

Prep for Karma Coursebee-705412_640

Hi Everyone! Ready for the Karma Course?

I wanted to give you all a quick guide for prepping for the Astrology, Reincarnation, Karma and Law of Attraction Course. There isn't much to do, so don't worry if you can't get to it ASAP. Deep breaths. We have lifetimes! :)

The Preferred Horoscope

I would like to see everyone who is going to be participating in the course upload their 'Karma Course' chart in the gallery under Course Examples. That means, choose Course Examples under Select Album.

Screen Shot 2017-03-17 at 10.59.28 AMNo, it's not some new chart style, but for the sake of consistency, focus and expediency (Virgo full moon?), I'd like all the charts to have the same essential elements. Here's what to include over at Astro.com, or in your own astro software: Choose your birth data in My Astro, then click EXTENDED CHART SELECTION. Leave it at the default chart style.

Prep for the Karma Course Style

Then scroll down and click these additions:

South Node (Descending Node)
Mean Node
Asteroid 3811 Karma
Part of Fortune (Pars Fortunae)
Chiron (and aspects to Chiron)
Add some Fixed Stars

Screen Shot 2017-03-13 at 4.27.52 PM

For the start of this course, at least, we'll stick to just those additions. No need to put in any additional asteroids, trans Plutos etc.  Here's my chart as an example below. If you don't want your data showing, but aren't sure how to edit it out, shoot me your chart and I'll sort it for you.

astro_2gw_03_annadusa_wilder.16131.29028

Uploading your Chart

When you go to upload your chart to the gallery, please put it in the Course Examples Gallery, (chosen under Select Album) so they are all in one place and easy to find.

If you need help, sing out!

Prerequisites

If you are new to astrology and/or the Law of Attraction, please go through the Essentials Course (5 calls). It covers Astro-LOA basics and the roots of astrology, the signs, planets, houses, and aspects.

We'll be talking about the Lunar Nodes in regards to past lives, so if you have any questions about the nodes before we start, fire away.

Additional Prep for the Karma Course

One of my aims for this course is to teach you how to use the astrological chart as a map to awareness, a way to see into your past, release patterns and habits and move forward with grace, integrity and joy. To do this, we will be putting focus on what we desire, while exploring the origins of any kinks that need unraveling. For this part of the prep, I would like you to name three things you'd like to change in your life. They might be inner, like, "my feelings about my family," or outer, like, "My bank balance," or a mix of both.

This give you a chance to pre-pave what you would like to work on in this course. Once we dive in, you might change your mind about what's important to you, but let's all find where we are at, right now, in this red-hot moment. :)

You can post your three things here, or in an email to me and Jeannette, or a completely private journal. All good.

Let me know if you have any questions so far.

So excited to begin!

Align with Venus Rx 2017

Flamencoscapes 13 by Miki de Goodaboom
Flamencoscapes 13 by Miki de Goodaboom

Hi Everyone, Let's talk about Venus Rx 2017.

audioListen in to the one hour call on Venus Rx with live examples.

 

pdf_downlaodLinks to example charts and CHAT notes here.

Venus Rx Technicalities

Venus Rx is short hand for Venus Retrograde. It means that, from the perspective of the earth, Venus is transiting backwards through the zodiac, in this case from  13 Aries back to 27 Pisces. This phenomenon happens about once every 18 months and is part of the cycle of Morning Star and Evening Star, ie, when Venus makes her switch. Read all the details on the Synodic Cycles of Venus. There is a quick video tutorial. Check how Venus creates the five pointed star in her travels around the sun.

Venus Rx 2017
Venus Rx 2017 from Cafe Astrology

screen-shot-2016-11-15-at-4-33-18-pmVenus Rx Align with the Stars Call

Jeannette and I are hosting a live call on Venus Rx, March 7th, 2017 at 5pm Eastern. We'll talk about the ins and outs of Venus, and retrograde planets in general, focusing on 'where' this is happening in your chart.

If you join in, we can look at your chart live, and take questions.

Check the Align with the Stars Calls schedule for details.

Things to do during Venus Rx

You want to go back to Taurus - the sign that knows what she wants. Joanne Whickenberg says, "When Venus is retrograde, it operates through Libra, so you look to others to give you a sense of your own personal worth. This generally doesn’t work, so you then have to go back and do the Taurus thing." To me, that means finding out what you really want, without prompting from others.

Are you doing what you love, or saving fun for a rainy day? Everyone benefits from reflecting on that right now.

Be open to seeing or hearing from people from your past, including exes. What have we learned?

As astrologer Caroline Casey always says, retrograde planets are like the arrow and the bow. The more you pull back, the further the Arrow will fly. That means if you take the TIME to reflect and refresh, restore and re-balance, during the Rx cycle, the stronger impact your intentions and desires will have as they shoot out into the world.

With that in mind, take this time to honor Venus in your chart, and where she is transiting by house (more details explored on the call). All things ruled by Venus, from desires to sensuality, relationships to money, are good places to start. See house by house tips below, but basically:

  • Sleep More
  • Find pleasure in everything
  • Appreciate food, money, love, connection, in all forms
  • Be in nature
  • Spend time with animal friends
  • Give yourself space to reflect
  • Have fun with friends, lovers, partners, strangers

pdf_downlaodReassessing your core values, partnerships and self-love habits bring the best results.

Things to put on pause during Venus Rx

Cosmetic surgery

Weddings

Makeovers

Shopping sprees

Remodeling (home makeover, website makeover, garden and landscaping, unless you've been planning prior to January 30th).

Decisions about long term relationships (note: do drop any toxic relationship if you are 100% clear on the toxicity. Otherwise, wait until Venus Direct to take actions - same goes with getting back together with exes).

Decisions about short term relationship

Risky investments

Go further into debt

Venus Retrograde through the houses

First House -

Go through your closet and throw out or giveaway old clothes, but resist the urge to buy new ones just yet. Facials and body care are in, radical changes in hair color or length, or any cosmetic surgery is best put on pause. You want to reflect on your shop window, how you present yourself to the world, not change it completely.

Second House -

Take time out to reflect on your finances, what's in the bank and also the ways and means you support yourself. How are you moving towards self-sufficiency? Redo your core values list and ponder what has changed. Self worth? Ruminate now; act later. The urge will lean towards extravagance. Definitely put the credit cards away, at least until mid-April.

Third House -

Connect to your consciousness, what you think, and that you think you think. How do you communicate your true self? Are you saying it like it is, or like you think they want to hear it? Are you true to yourself, or false? Let your sibling, or part-way related ppl into your awareness more. Tune into any persistent relationship patterns you have with yourself - self talk?

Fourth House -

Family relationships, home ground and emotional security are everything right now. But, avoid putting energy into home repairs as a displacement for being with family members, listening to them, connecting resolving. If some of these relationship are old patterns, or toxic, keep your boundaries, and take action with Venus Direct. Parental issues? Get more sleep.

Fifth House -

Revisit old creative projects that have been sitting on the shelf. Have you a neglected idea that wants to come to life? Enjoy time with kids, or those young at heart; avoid deciding on new creative ventures, new babies, new love life. Review feelings for what you have experienced in the past. Get in touch with your heart.

Sixth House -

Tap into your core values around body, body love, health, nutrition and well being. Fitness? Strength? Fix old things (like dental cavities or leaky dog house). Save new work, if possible, for May or later. Any rituals around Venus and your desires are potent now, but check into core values before you ask for something you don't really want.

Seventh House -

This is your time to release old patterns when it comes to relationship. Reflect on what you love about partnership, not so much 'who' but the feelings and experiences that light you up. It's the perfect time so release toxic connections, letting them float away. Pause to consider any open enemies. What do they represent in you? Why are they in your life? What can you learn?

Eighth House -

Joint finances and resources, money owed and owing, come to the foreground. Check into your core values around collaboration, sex, and deeper motivations for your connections with others. Hold off on radical change, declarations, adventures and commitments. This is a time to re-evaluate, not rebuild, yet.

Ninth House -

This is a great time to dream big, explore ideas, expand beliefs, but realize you won't be acting on them yet. Travel and higher edu might feel like it's on pause, which is perfectly fine. Instead of chomping at the bit, take this time to explore what you want through imagination. The bigger you dream, the more territory you'll create once Venus goes direct.

Tenth House -

Career goals are up for evaluation, along with your relationship to the public. If you play a PR game, this will be a significant time of considering what works, what's worth keeping and what to let go. You always hang on to what's authentic. Experiment, test, but hold off on big sweeping changes for now. Prepare for insights into how others see you.

Eleventh House -

This is where friendships come into play. You may connect with those from the past, and revel in how much you have both changed, or stayed the same. Your relationship to groups, leading and being one of the many, rise up, so take a reading of where you stand. What's true for you. It's also great to explore your goals and wishes for the future. Again, dream in what you desire.

Twelfth House - 

In the 12th house we meet what sustains and/or undoes us. Our job is to find and feed the sustaining aspects of Aries (in this case) the independence, leadership. enthusiasm, confidence, bravery, without letting it become arrogant, conceited or tyrannical. With Venus Rx here, we meet others who represent our hidden side, the parts of ourselves we can't easily see. Use this time to give everyone the benefit of a doubt. Find compassion, openness and generosity. This is your relationship with your unconscious ... Dreams are everything.

Remember, Venus Rx supports re-evaluation of what we really want, for ourselves and in our relationships. Give some time over to this task.

The Lunar Nodes and Your Future

emotional-financial-baggage

UPDATE - the May 16, 2017 Align with the Stars call will be all about the transiting Nodes into Leo - Aquarius. Join in!

Call details. Everyone welcome.

The North and South Lunar Nodes

moon.orbit_First of all, the Lunar Nodes are points that mark the crossing of the Moon, north and south, over the ecliptic. (That's the imaginary path of the sun around the Earth.) The Mean Lunar Nodes progress in a retrograde direction, taking 18.6 years to complete a cycle backwards through the zodiac.

Youtube Tutorial on the Lunar Nodes

For  a brief overview of the Lunar Nodes, how they relate to Source energy, your path and your past, watch the new video tutorial.

Screen Shot 2017-02-26 at 1.31.49 PM

Listen to the full lecture discussion on Module 5  - 5 Points to Reveal Your Rock Star Entrepreneur.

Lunar Nodes 101

The Nodes are significant points that offer meaningful and applicable guide posts in any astrological interpretation.

“[The Nodes] link together the solar principle, the lunar principle and the principle of the Earth. The points are derived through the movement of those three bodies, and I actually think the Nodes are an attempt…to balance solar principles and lunar principles within the body on the earth plane. In some ways, the Nodes indicate a struggle between the pull of the past and new qualities or traits or choices that need to be made.” --Howard Sasportas

Note the Nodes represent a pull in opposite directions

Snode
South Lunar Node

The South Lunar Node, also known as the Dragon’s Tail or Cauda Draconis, pulls us into the direction of the past. This represents instinctive desires that call us back to a place where we feel, if not comfortable, at least familiar. Like the Moon and her association with intuitive impulses, the South Lunar Node can operate unconsciously. It's often an automatic response.

NNode
North Lunar Node

The North Lunar Node, the Dragon’s Head or Caput Draconis, pulls us into the future. It represents the areas of life where we can, with conscious effort and choice, break new ground and obtain valuable new experiences. Like the Sun, the North Lunar Node, when approached with courage, awareness and a sense of new possibilities, brings consciousness and growth.

Remember, the two Nodes are always diametrically opposite, in opposing signs and houses.

The Lunar Nodes also pertain to people. An activated South Node can indicate a person from the past that suddenly pops back into your life. More often than not, these South Node people require help or assistance from us. Even those with a personal planet sign corresponding to our South Node sign can seem to always need help.

An activated North Node, can indicate new people that enter the life offering opportunity, alliance and aid. Transits and progressions here can indicate someone new presenting a challenge, opening or fresh direction.

True or Mean Lunar Nodes

The terms True Node or Mean Node refer to the same thing, the position of the lunar nodes, but they represent different ways of calculating them. It's a matter of mathematics. The true node takes in the 'wobble' of the nodes and includes direct and retrograde motions. The mean node is an average and is always retrograde. True or Mean, they are never more than a degree or two apart. Astrologers don't agree on which is 'best' but given the closeness, either preference will give insights and results.

The North Node into Leo

kittens-in-suitcase

As the nodes transit clockwise, or retrograde, the NN goes from 0 Virgo to 29 Leo on April 28, 2017 (True Node) and May 10, 2017 (Mean Node). Note that Leo is about developing creative self expression, and Aquarius is about group dynamics, being one of the many.

This is going to activate your Leo -- Aquarius houses over the next 1.5 years, so look there to where you 1) shine in your own right vs. rely on friends or groups to define you. The idea, remember, is to create balance.

The transit will be crossing my Ascendant (0 Vi or 29 Le depending on which birth time I use.) I'll be noting inner and outer events at that time, and incorporating the nodal alignment with my manifesting practices.

Where is this transit happening in your chart?

True and Mean Lunar Nodes Rx into 29 Leo April and May 2017.
True and Mean Lunar Nodes Rx into 29 Leo April and May 2017.

JANUARY Align with the Stars Calls

Jeannette Maw and I talked about the January - February 2017 Astro weather including Mercury Rx - Direct and the Full Moon Grand Cross. Exciting events! We've included a checklist for getting the most out of this powerful Full Moon. We also looked a quite a few individual chart as examples. It will help you learn how to work with these transits on your own, and with others charts.

Basically, we are looking at amping up self-love where you find the Full Moon at 22 Cancer. Then opposite, we are encouraging you tap into your core ambitions and goals where you find the Sun at 22 Capricorn. We also look at dropping tolerations were you find 22 Libra, Jupiter's position at this tine. And finally, with Uranus at 20 Aries, you go there to discover where you need to take control, be the boss.

Telling a New Story 2017

56ab97371a00001001ab1957
Octavia E. Butler’s 1988 Journal, from Huntington Library in California.

octavia_butlerHi Everyone, ready to amp up 2017 with a fine tuned, astro-tailored new story?

It’s the end of the year, and with 2017 a few days away, we can all think about telling a new story. I don’t mean putting a splash of energy towards a new vibe, wishful thinking, bling, you’re done. This is about engaging with the idea of what you want and being that vibe, now. No doubts. Zero hesitation. As Octavia Butler writes (above) ‘So be it! See to it!

She wasn’t messing around, and I don’t want us to either.

Octavia Buttler’s New Story in 1988

As an African-American female author in the white/male dominated sci-fi landscape, Octavia E. Butler achieved extraordinary success in her writing career, winning Hugo and Nebula awards and the coveted MacArthur Fellowship ie the “Genius Grant.” What’s really inspiring is, on top of all that, Octavia Butler scripted her success BEFORE it happened. Take a moment to read her script. It’s not humble pleading. No hedging around. Her new story, which clearly she came back to edit a few time, is strong, bold, insistent even! You might say she demanded her success, and her ability to help aspiring writers. It all came true, against huge ‘odds’.

So be it!

See to it!

Spot the Old Story First

The idea is simple. You have a desire and it’s yet to be realized. The longer it takes, the more your old story builds, like:

“I’m not going to make it.”

“All the good ones are gone.”

“I’m not (good/smart/pretty/rich) enough to deserve this.”

It’s easy to know when an old story isn’t serving you. As Jeannette Maw says, you can spot those ‘bad’ stories a mile away by how they feel. And, if the old story has been hanging around for a while, if it’s become a solid BELIEF, your outer circumstances will make if clear. For example, if your story is “Relationships are hard work,” and you are in the thick of a dramatic breakup, your relationship story could use an upgrade.

How?

As you speak, so shall it be. Tell the version you want to see unfold! – Jeannette Maw How to Break a Bad Story

The Astrology of the New Story

Like Octavia Butler’s example, you can literally write the story as you want it to read, as if it’s already happened. Variations on this range from mantras, affirmations, scripts, vision boards to active imagination and guided meditation. The idea is, you let go of the old story-thoughts-belief and sing in the new.

What impresses me the most about Octavia’s New Story is the confidence from which she writes it. And it all came true!

Example Chart

Let’s look at her horoscope and see where that energy is coming from. What made 1988 the time she chose to get ‘real’ about her intentions. How does this success in writing fits her chart.

The writer in her, indeed the marginalized science fiction writer in here, might be seen as Sun/Uranus in the 12th. She’s not what society expected. Mercury rising is a love/drive to communicate, and my favorite, the North Lunar Node in Gemini, in the 11th.

The Transits

Active when she wrote her new story was transiting Jupiter (expansion) on Mars (action) and Saturn/Uranus (breaking old patterns) both opposite the sun (purpose/identity).

In her solar return chart, Gemini (the written and spoken word AND commerce) rises, bringing her own 12th house to the Ascendant. Her deepest dreams meet the light of day.

What new story do you want to tell in 2017? Join us, GVA Members, to discuss the possibilities on the December 27th Call.

Activate Your Vibration

These are Jeannette’s Vibration Activators – great resources to flip on your positive, confident, and as Janette put it, Puissance!

“The best way to leverage this vibe support is simply to read the post, then let go. Don’t try to “make it happen” or worry if it is. Get to the vibe, then go about having your good time.” – Jeannette
