Hi 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.
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!
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.

“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)
“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
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.
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.”

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?
Planetary 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.
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. :)
