Asteroid 3811 Karma

Asteroid 3811 Karma! What a popular topic. I've written on this in the past, on the 11th House Blog, but wanted to bring it in to GVA for us to study here. Those of you taking the Karma course, our call on the 9th of June will focus on this topic. Here's a little warm up ...

Astronomy of 3811 Karma

Asteroid 3811 Karma is a main belt asteroid discovered Oct 13, 1953 by Liisi Oterma, a Finnish astronomer at Turku Astronomical-Optical Institute. She discovered over 200 asteroids and three comets, an inspirational women and astronomer of her time. Karma orbits between Mars and Jupiter, taking 4.136 years to make the journey through the Zodiac.

So what is the meaning of this little asteroid and how does it relate to our natal charts?

In the astrological chart, it can be related to 'consequences', not in an 'ouch' way, but as in results or 'vibration.' We're talking about this, in the Karma Course, but I'll repeat it here.

Karma is essentially the Law of Attraction. It's the vibration or pattern of energy we signal the universe to return to us. Like attracts like. As you sew, so shall you reap. I've summed it up like this:

The core meaning of karma in your life is not retribution or ‘pay back’ but synchronicity, and alignment.

Those who have my book Astrology and Aptitude - How to Become What you are Meant to be can read a short delineation to get started. Another way to get to a deeper understanding of 3811 Karma it to look at the origin of the word Karma.

It is Sanskrit, from KARMAN or KAROTI, which means "to do" or "to work". KARMA is a word and we attach meaning to it in the context of what we know, the usual being gleaned from Hindu or Buddhist "consequences of a person's actions. Fate. Destiny. . . reaping what you sow."

But, the word originally referred to the simple act of doing. In taking of action we have the RESULT, the consequences which will change our destiny (what we are creating in our lives.) NOTE: Karma isn't the destiny, it is the action that leads to our 'path' as we walk it. We are deliberate creators. We decide. And with each thought, new worlds come into being.

In this sense, asteroid 3811 Karma is, by house, sign, aspect and transit, about 'doing that which must be done.' In the chart there is a kind of fulfillment, a 'rightness' when we activate that area of life. When the asteroid is activated in synastry (by another person's placements) it can be that "the work or actions" of another trips our destiny switch. Being around that person when they are 'doing' their Karma could at times bring an epiphany or turning point. A realization. It's a two way link that joins action with revelation.

Has anyone seen this in chart comparisons or by transit?

My natal Karma is 22 Gemini conjunct Mercury in the midst of my Gemini stellium so it's hard for me to put my finger on it. I do to myself often things like, 'I have to write! I have to communicate!' Perhaps there is something of the 'doing' that motivates my Mercury energy. I know a lot of clients and friends, and readers, that have personal planets very close to my Karma/Mercury. Interesting!

In a quick look at synastry charts I noticed that Amelia Earhart (who I did intensive research on for a case study many years back) had Neptune at 21 Gem 33. I was doing at lot of work (Karma) on her mysterious (Neptune) disappearance . . .

As for Karma and Astro-Carto-Graphy, the town where I have worked harder in my life than anywhere in the past for 20 years has Jupiter exactly opposite my Karma! And BIG results!

Looking at synastry contacts is very interesting. As in, 'Will they be 'hard work'? lol Seriously, as deliberate creators, we wouldn't want to think that!

Thoughts? I'd love to know where your 3811 Karma is.

Also check the transits, watching for change of house or exact conjunctions.

For those curious but not ready to dive into self-study, Karmic Astrology Readings are now available at the Astrology Shop.

Karma Course Synasty - Homework #5

2 of Cups Shadowscapes Tarot

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Karma Course Synastry where we look at the 'karma' or vibration patterns between two people. 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 #5 Homework Resources

  1. Synastry Charts Tutorial Youtube  - 8 minute video
  2. Manifesting Romance  - People as Mirrors - 1 hour call
  3. Chart Reading Like a Pro - Love Relationships - 1 hour call
  4. Transcripts of Karma Course Synastry call - PDF

We didn't talk about the Vertex on the call, but I find it significant too in drawing people into our lives that match a patter, or awaken one. Check the post here, and see if you spot any vertex connections in the synastry (accurate birth time is essential).

"...Meetings with significant people, as seen through synastry and composite charts, may also link strongly to the vertex. (Think of people as permanent transits.) When one person’s inner planets or asteroids (Sun through to Jupiter), angles, nodes, vertex or certain Arabic parts conjunct the vertex, there can be a feeling of fate, destiny, rightness or wrongness about the encounter. Something in the contact with that person may have the ability to create profound change over a long or short period of time. The change may be perceived as wonderful, or not so wonderful, but always ‘meant to be.’..."

Call #5 Homework

This is where you can explore any synastry chart combinations that interest you. Try focusing on three things that stand out, or ONE things that stands out. The goal isn't to do a full synastry ready, but to spot a vibration pattern activated in the charts.

See you in the comments!

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!

Prep for the Karma Course

Prep for Karma Coursebee-705412_640

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! :)

The Preferred Horoscope

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.

Screen Shot 2017-03-17 at 10.59.28 AMNo, 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.

Prep for the Karma Course Style

Then scroll down and click these additions:

South Node (Descending Node)
Mean Node
Asteroid 3811 Karma
Part of Fortune (Pars Fortunae)
Chiron (and aspects to Chiron)
Add some Fixed Stars

Screen Shot 2017-03-13 at 4.27.52 PM

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.

astro_2gw_03_annadusa_wilder.16131.29028

Uploading your Chart

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!

Prerequisites

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.

Additional Prep for the Karma Course

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!
