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!

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.

Use Astrology to Boost your Manifesting

Image by Shana Erback

Hi Everyone! Use astrology to boost your manifesting is a re-blog from Jeannette's GoodVibeBlog posted in 2013 when GVA first opened. I realized this flows perfectly with the last call of the Home Sweet Home course and wanted to post it here as well.

Our aim is to marry up the powerful arts of astrology and deliberate creation.

(Hats off to you savvy creators who are already doing so!)

But for those of you who this might be foreign to, or anyone in need of some tips and reminders, here are six ways astrology can amp up your manifesting game:

Image by Elena Lishanskaya
Image by Elena Lishanskaya

1. Harness planetary energy

Everything vibrates – including you, me, our thoughts and all those beautiful planets.

How do those universal bodies affect your vibration?  And how can you use those energies to your manifesting benefit?

All it takes is some basic astrological knowledge to get more bang for your focusing buck.  You’ll find it makes all the difference in the world when you work with planetary cyclical energy rather in ignorance of it.

2.  Get a better handle on contrast

When things seem to be going sideways, it can help to spot the transits involved and understand the ‘message in the madness’.  (Just seeing transformation ahead, and the core purpose of it all, can bring relief in the present moment!)

3.  Find reasons to believe

When we can see how the stars are lining up to support what we want, it makes it even easier to believe in our success.  And belief and expectation are big parts of the LOA game.

When I saw Jupiter moving into my tenth house, my LOA-friendly interpretation was that this was the time my professional platform really wanted to grow.  That was no time to play it small – and seeing that energy in play made me braver in honoring bold work inspirations.

4.  Enhance self love

It is nearly impossible to study your natal chart without falling in love with yourself.  You’ll see all your complexities and quirks that make you uniquely you.  Since the world can only reflect how we feel about ourselves, self love is a helpful vibe to amplify.

5.  See others from the eyes of God/Source

We’re co-creating the others in our lives based on how we think about and know them.  So finding a way to see them in their highest light allows you to experience the best they have to offer.  Astrology is a powerful way to tap into another’s best self.  (In the past, knowing an ex was a triple Virgo helped me cut him lots of slack when he tended to criticize instead of appreciate.)

6.  Identify and leverage your best LOA power tools

Your personal astrology inclines you to certain manifesting gifts.  Once you know them, you can take full conscious advantage of them.  (Example, my Libra sun makes it easy for me to see other points of view, and thus to be more flexible in how I perceive reality.  Which is why I’m so good at leveraging Abraham’s advice to “see ‘what is’ in a way that pleases you.”)

How do you use astrology to become a more powerful deliberate creator?  We’d love to hear from you in the comments!

And if you’re interested in some first class guidance in using astrology to improve your manifesting results, Join us at GVA.

A Fun Manifesting Example

Thanks so much for re-posting here, Jeannette.

So, here's and example of an LOA  technique based on Saturn transiting my 4th house. It's a combo of the above #5 and #6 - Seeing others from the eyes of Source and seeing what is, in a way that is pleasing to me.

The Astro: Many of you know I have had Saturn transiting through my 4th house for several years. It put the focus on home and family, and I admit, I was having difficulties. We live in close quarters so, you know...

What I did to see them all from Source perspective, and get happy with What is, was IMAGINE each individual member of the family in a way that perfectly delighted me and found an image that matched. I added myself to the mix, and visit the images when I need to remind myself how wonderful these people are. Here, let me show you:

Aaron
Virgo son
Sara
Aries Daughter-in-Law
 Kayla
Virgo Granddaughter
Kinayda*another Virgo* Grandson
 Son

Leo Grandson

KimGemini me :)

It's an amazing practice and has transformed a contrasting Home Sweet Home to a delightful one.

I'd love to hear what current transits you have now and what LOA techniques you're using to boost your manifesting. Hop on the comments to share, or ask questions.

Thanks for joining us. See you there!


Eclipse Season - Moonwalk by Catrin Welz-Stein

Ready for the Eclipse Season?

Eclipse Season - Moonwalk by Catrin Welz-SteinEclipse Season Image by Catrin Welz-Stein

The 2018 Eclipse Season is upon us. Are you ready?

Eclipse Season Dates

The first eclipse of the year is January 31/February 1 – a (Full Moon) Total Lunar Eclipse @11 Leo linking Sun-Moon-Nodes to Ceres, Venus and Neptune. The last time we had a Lunar Eclipse at this degree was January 1999.

This current eclipse is significant because it is not only a total eclipse, but also a 'blue' moon (second full moon of the month in the northern hemisphere) and a supermoon* or at it's perigee. Think of this as activating and heightening emotions, perspectives and sensations while possibly shortening fuses. This may not be negative for you at all. With awareness, you can use a 'short fuse' to release tolerations, setting free pent up emotions and clearing the air. Just know you might cut a wide swath. Without awareness, there could be fallout.

In your natal chart, attention is placed on opposite polarities like yin and yang, home and career, internal and external, Self and Others. You have a chance to balance life, especially in the houses touched by this eclipse. Namely, the houses where you find 11 Leo and 11 Aquarius. If you need help finding those houses, run through the simple steps below, or give a shout out in the comments.

TIMES for the January 31st/February 1st Eclipse

LA – Wednesday – 5.26 am
NY. – Wednesday – 8.26 am
LON – Wednesday – 1.26 pm
SYD – Thursday – 12.26 am

TIMES for the February 15th/16th Eclipse

February 15/16 is the (New Moon) Partial Solar Eclipse @27 Aquarius. This is a powerhouse time to start new projects, especially in in the area of life ruled by the house activated (see how to find that below).

LA – Thursday – 1.06 pm
NY - Thursday – 4.06 pm
LON – Thursday – 9.06 pm
SYD – Friday – 8.06 am

Eclipse Season in Perspective

In ancient times, eclipses were associated with dramatic events, political, geological or existential. Hence the apprehension many feel when an eclipse is impending. Luckily, it's not the 1400s anymore, and we aren't locked into a single perspective. We decide how we will align with these Sun-moon-node cycles. Most importantly, we focus on the gifts they bring.

By checking where the eclipse falls in your chart, we can be open to the positive, creative change on offer. It's easy to do. Just follow these simple steps.

For the Jan 31sr/Feb 1st Total Lunar Eclipse @11 Leo:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your favorite software)
  2. Check where 11 Degrees of Leo and 15 degrees of Leo falls
  3. Focus on those HOUSES to see where you will receive your cosmic gifts

For the Partial Solar Eclipse on February 15th/16th:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your fav software)
  2. Check where 27 degress of Aquarius is in your chart
  3. Look at that HOUSE to open to the kick-ass fresh start on offer

Prep for the Eclipse Season Gifts

Ways to prepare for the eclipse opportunities include:

  1. Revisit your core values
  2. Make a list of tolerations to release
  3. Think about home live vs. career - balanced?
  4. Clean and de-clutter the house, or even a drawer
  5. Clear up misunderstandings in relationships
  6. Get more rest
  7. Boost your nutrition
  8. Find more time to exercise
  9. Appreciate what is, just as it is
  10. Amp up self love

Let's talk more about this in the comments.

Happy eclipse season gifts! I'd love to hear how this shapes up for you.

xxKim

* A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit, resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.[1] The technical name is the perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system or more simply full (or new) Moon at perigee.[a]  - Read More....

Home Sweet Home

senkarik-a-kiss-of-sunshine-1000x805
Home Sweet Home image by Mikki Senkarik

Hi everyone, welcome to an introduction to our new course for Jan - Feb 2018, Home Sweet Home.

Manifesting with the Moon....

Are you ready for the home of your dreams, inner contentment, emotional peace and security?

Home Sweet Home - Manifesting with the Moon - will focus on just that.

This is our first course series for 2018 and we'll be exploring your 4th house, the roots of the chart and how that inner core of well being radiates out into everything we do, want or desire. If you're feeling insecure, your manifesting will be shaky, so let's join in and find serenity, strength and peace at the center of our being.

Home Sweet Home Call Series

 

This is about leveraging all things 'home' in the chart, ie the natal Moon, Eclipse transits, progressed Moon, Draconic Moon and transits, 4th house rulers, planets in the 4th, Nodes, aspects to the IC - to manifest our best home life ever, inner and outer. You don't have to know your astrology to benefit. Jeannette and Kim will be looking at your chart to unravel the insights while you learn how.
We have fab stories and examples around house hunting, living with neighbors, feeling emotionally grounded, living with family, connecting to parents or family elders... Also, we'll look at the notion of relocation and manifesting. Does it change things when we move, or do we take our vibe with us?

LOA Techniques

We'll cover many manifesting techniques including self-love, the Magic Eye, scripting, self-talk, manifesting 'for others', acting as if, pre-paving, visualizing and more.

Prep for Home Sweet Home

1) Make sure your natal chart is uploaded to the gallery. If you need help, shoot your chart or data to Kim and she'll create it/pop it up for you.
2) In the comments, on this page to start, we'll be talking about some basic astrology of the home, thinking of it in terms of set points, and how we give and receive nurturing, including self-love. If you want Kim, Jeannette and others to chat with you and give feedback, you'll need to post so we can see you and your chart. :)

Discussion Topics for Home Sweet Home

1) On a scale of one to ten, where 1 = Yuk and 10 = Yum, notice where you are at with your home. That's the house, your sense of inner peace, your dreams about the home*, relationships you live with, neighborhood, everything. Think back to childhood homes too. What's changed? What has stayed the same?
2) List three things you want to experience at home. It might be a comfort, space, room for horses, a great relationship, fabulous view, fur children, human children... What would you like?

Now, for the Astrology Basics

3) Identify your 4th house in your chart, the sign on the cusp and the ruler(s) of that sign.
4) Think about what kind of HOME that sign would want to express in, and what those ruling planets might have to say about the ENERGY of the home. What goes on there?
5) Notice if there are any planets or points in the 4th. For now, just notice what they might feel about being in the watery, bottom of the chart.
6) Finally, for this discussion, notice the sign and house of your moon. How does she feel about the needs and desires of the 4th house. Compatibility or contrast?
7) What is your 'Home' set point right now?*
*Set points are defined in biology as the level or point at which a variable physiological state (as body temperature or weight) tends to stabilize. In manifesting terms, it is the level to which we will allow an inner or outer experience to reach/stabilize (bank balance, relationship, career success, home environment etc.)

Call Details - TBC

The first call is EARLY FEBRUARY TBC at 5pm Eastern (USA). The venue is changing up as well, to UberConference, so check the MEMBERS CALLS page for new details. All GVA members will be emailed updates prior to the call and then weekly during the course.

LA – Tuesday – 2 pm
NY – Tuesday – 5 pm
Lon – Tuesday – 10 pm
SYD – Wednesday – 9 am

New to astrology? Take our free, Essential Astro-LOA Course to learn the basics. You'll start to understand the Planets as ENERGY or WHAT is acting, the houses as WHERE the action takes place, the signs as HOW the energy expresses. What costume is worn?

See you there!

* You might think you have a great home life but if you have nightmares involving your home, there could be hidden contrast there.

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!

xxxKim

 


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.

Planets Out of Bounds

Planets out of bounds have a declination greater than 23 degrees 27’. It means “outside of the boundary of the ecliptic”, or the path of the earth’s orbit around the sun. Because of the tilt of the earth’s axis, the sun appears to stay within 23 degrees 27’ north of the equator and 23 degrees 27’ south of the equator. Anything “outside” of that is considered “Out-of-bounds”.

These planets out of bounds act in more EXTREME ways. They are on the edge—beyond the boundary because their energy is excessive and zealous in nature. It is really “out there”.

When an OOB planet transits a sensitive point in your chart, you can be sure it will wake up in wild and zany ways. Check your natal chart to see where these degrees fall. Any planets there? If so, you want to pre-pave the best ever expansion you can imagine.

Call #4 - Dream Come True Astrology

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.

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

See you on the call!

Call #2 - Dream Come True Astrology

Crispin Korschen Call #2
Image by Crispin Korschen

Hi Everyone,  Welcome to Dream Come True Astrology call #2 - Effortless Manifesting

In Call #1, we talked about our reality, where we see things as solid, real and sometimes daunting. Most of us are looking at the reality, 'what is' and wanting it to be different. It feels like we have to DO SOMETHING to change it - think differently, create a new perception, work it ... and those things can lead to change, lead to where you want to go. Sure. But it's not the easy way. It's not the effortless way. In Call #2 we are going to dive into the sea of Neptunian bliss, release resistance and experience effortless creation. To do that, we will call on the outer planets to support us:

  1. Awareness of our perceived limitation - Saturn
  2. Embrace change - Uranus
  3. Release resistance - Neptune
  4. Transform our experience of reality - Pluto

For those who want a scientific perceptive on Call #2

The effortless manifesting technique is based on the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle which states we cannot measure the position (x) and the momentum (p) of a particle with absolute precision. The more accurately we know one of these values, the less accurately we know the other. Watch this YouTube tutorial if you want a fuller explanation.

What does the Uncertainty Principle have to do with manifesting?

How this translates into the Law of Attraction and astrology is simple. The more you focus (fixate?) on a thing, the less probability it has of it becoming something else.

As an example, take money. If I only have x amount of money, and I measure that x amount regularly, putting my focus on and reaffirming "I only have x amount of money" the less likely I am to have any greater amount of money, no matter how much I work, what my financial plan is, how many jobs I take on, etc. The more I focus on x, the more x I experience. Focusing (ruled by Saturn) makes things 'real'.

The effortless way to have (in this case) more money, is to stop fixating on it. That means I release the thoughts associated with money (having x, wanting more, not enough etc). If I engage Neptune, and let go, so that my fixated thoughts dissipate, my experience of money shifts from the 'particle' or SOLID reality to the 'wave' or INFINITE possibilities.

Sounds simple! But ... how do we do it? That's what Call #2 is all about.

Prep for Call #2

In the spirit of effortlessness, you don't have to do a thing to prep for this call. If you want, you can post your natal chart to the Course Examples gallery and have the link handy for the call, or the conversations below.

If you are new to astrology and GVA, you can EMAIL us your birth data - Date, Time and Place of birth - and we'll post it for you and send you the link. 

After listening to the call above, let's recap this effortless manifesting technique.

  1. Choose a 'reality' that you focus on. This is something that you feel isn't serving you - a relationship pattern, a $$ issue, health, creative, just choose one, large or small.
  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.

That's it.

Questions and comments here.

If anyone would like to try the 'drill down' technique mentioned in the call, to get to the core value of their 'reality experience', here are links that lay it out.

Nobody wants to win the lottery - Thank you Jeannette!

Solstice Dance

Solstice Dance - Danza de Luna by Beverly Ash Gilbert
Danza de Luna by Beverly Ash Gilbert

The Solstice Dance

Happy mid-winter solstice in the southern hemisphere; mid-summer in the north. This is a time to celebrate, appreciate and feel gratitude for the blessings in life. Let's count them! Fuel our goals, aspirations and desires by honoring the connection to life, love, nurturing and joy. Make this whole week a an inner, and outer celebration.

Think of the Solstice Dance as a turning point, symbolic of endings and new beginnings. With the New Moon, Mercury and Chiron closely connected to the o degree Cancer sun (the solstice point), our intentions can magnify. If you focus this energy, there's nothing that can not be accomplished.

Technical Notes

In Astrology, two major things happen at the solstice.

1) the Sun is crosses the AP – the zero degree “Aries” point. What? The sun is nowhere near Aries. It’s 0 degrees of Cancer.

True, but all the Cardinal points of the zodiac, 0 Aries, 0 Cancer, 0 Libra and 0 Capricorn are collectively called the “Aries Point”. If you take a square piece of paper and fold it so each corner is in the same place, you’ll see why.

2) the sun crosses triggers the Draconic Nodes, releasing energy to move you along your path (especially if you know what that path is!).

If you want to fast track your abundance, creativity, well-being, love and enlightenment, then focus your thoughts this week, up to and through the New Moon in Cancer, for maximum results.

New Moon @2 Cancer

New York - June 23 - 10:31 pm
London -  June 24 - 3:31 am

Deliberate Creations tips for the Solstice Dance, from the JeanetteBecome a Skilled Receiver, I Am Statements 101, The Manifesting Exercise.

Using your Chart to Amp up Solstice Intentions

It's easy to use your chart to amp up your intentions. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Spot where the four 0 degree Cardinal signs are in your chart. Think greet, engage, give, receive. This is where you do your Solstice Dance of enthusiasm and joy!
  2. Hone in on 0 degrees of Cancer in your chart. Give it an 8 - 10 degree orb either way. (20 Leo to 10 Cancer). Any planets there? What house is the focus on? Transits to that house?
  3. Notice how you feel in this area of life, what you want and then relax about it. Let the universe do her thing!

Not sure how to find these positions in your natal chart? Pop in a comment and we’ll give you a hand.

Happy Solstice everyone!

Mercury & Self-Talk

LovingThoughtsbyNicole_Wong
Loving Thoughts by Nicole Wong

Hi Everyone,

Anyone with Mercury as 12th house ruler, or Mercury in aspect to an outer planet, Mercury square to Ascendant, MC or planets - heck - anyone with a Mercury, may experience challenges improving their self-talk. Mostly, it's about changing a habit pattern, one that rises up when we aren't being kind, generous or loving to our SELF. The vibe that self-talk creates comes back to us, over years or even lifetimes. Changing our self-talk to thoughts of love, kindness and encouragement will change our lives. No questions asked!

As Jeannette Maw says, “The universe can only be as good to you as you are to yourself,” and face it, we aren’t always that self supportive.

What to do?

Think about your self-talk when you look in the mirror.

Are you your own best cheering squad, or do you list the faults and things that need to be ‘fixed’? What about at work? In your creativity? Your daily routine?In relationship to others?

When you lay awake at night, are you thinking of the things that went right or ‘wrong’?

Most of us are in the habit of self judgment, criticism and denigration. Just imagine what signal that sends to the universe? It’s a spell that conjures more of what we don’t want.

But there are ways to turn those harsh self judgments around, and this post is dedicated to exploring, discussing and practicing them.

Awareness

The first step is becoming aware when we get snarky with ourselves. That's all. Note it. Don't judge it. Find a way to smile and say, "There you are." It's catch and release. With. Love.

10 Minutes of RECEIVING Self Love

This is Brad Yates, a wonderful EFT wizard and booster of all things positive, creative and carefree. This recording is free on his website. If you want to explore EFT, he's your guy. To download onto your iPod, computer or phone, go here.

Worthiness Magic

This is one of Jeannette's tips and it really is magic.

Get a little notepad and on the first page write, I am worthy . . . write it a few times, just to get in the head space. Then go with some specifics. It might look like this:

I am worthy  . . .
I am worthy of love . . .
I am worthy of closeness . . .
I am worthy of connection. . .
I am worthy of happiness . . .
I am worthy of my family . . .
I am worthy of my power . . .
I am worthy of success . . .
I am worthy of my place in the world . . .

I am worthy . . .

Do the exercise once a day or as you feel to, and watch things shift.
