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.
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.

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.
I am loving this journey.
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.”
Read more about this here … Law of Attraction Isn’t for Fixing
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. :)
Thanks for being here!
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! :)
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.
No, 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.
Then scroll down and click these additions:
South Node (Descending Node)
Asteroid 3811 Karma
Part of Fortune (Pars Fortunae)
Chiron (and aspects to Chiron)
Add some Fixed Stars
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.
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!
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.
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!
How the past can unlock your future ….
Karma Course Start Date : March 21, 2017 - Free for all GVA Circle Members
The new Karma Course will explore ideas of Reincarnation, karma, the Law of Attraction, and how they relate to astrology, and you. Join Kim Falconer and Jeannette Maw.
Once you take this course, you'll see your life in a whole new way!
The Karma Course delves into the aspects of your birth chart, along with your sign and house placements, to help unlock mysteries and patterns from the past. References on these philosophies include ancient cultural and religious beliefs, along with contemporary speakers on the subject like Bashar, Abraham-Hicks, Deepak Chopra, and astrologers who work with past lives and karma, including Howard Sasportas, Judy Hall, Isabel Hickey and Edgar Cayce.
The goal is to reveal the core meaning of karma, not as retribution or ‘pay back’ but as synchronicity, an alignment. By understanding the continuity of spirit, and why we have certain patterns and contrasts in our lives, we can learn to change what we don't want, consciously. Right here. Right now.
