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

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

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!

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.

Home Sweet Home - Self-Love for the Soul

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?)

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.

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.

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!
