Home Sweet Home Astro-LOA

Last Call for 2017Image by Michiel Schrijver
The Home Sweet Home - Astro-LOA course 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.
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? Join us in these calls, and on the forum and create your own Home Sweet Home.

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.

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.


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.

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.

xxxKim

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!
