The Truth About Magic by James R. Eads (tarot cards)

The Truth About Magic by James R. Eads (tarot cards)

The full moon in Capricorn is sextile ruling Saturn trine Chiron and amping up that good old grand Cardinal cross in the sky. What does that mean? Breathe, release, let go. There are solutions and pathways that lead you forward, but you won’t see them until you give the grudge match a boot. Stop gnawing old bones and shake yourself free. Step into to the high clean winds of release. Not sure where to apply this ‘drop the tolerations‘ energy? Tips below, signs by sign. If you want to take it further, focus on where this event is in your chart and practice total release of anger, resentment, frustration or disappointment in that area of life. Basically, catch and release your judgments, of self and others. Appreciate and release everything. It’ll change your life.

AriesARIES: Your career takes a turn for the better with a chance to carry more responsibility for a much greater reward. Ask: Do you light up in a smile when you think of your life work? This is the time to take a risk, release stress and move forward with clear goals.

TaurusTAURUS: Take your mind, body or spirit somewhere it’s never been before – meditate, travel, read, learn. Ask: are you holding yourself back from your real dreams? Best not, as chance of a life time offers pour in.

GeminiGEMINI: Intimacy and intensity is what will light your fire now. Go ahead and take a leap in the dark. Ask: are you playing it safe with your emotions? Express, purge. Release grudges; make room for incoming love.

CancerCANCER: Partnership is the focus and you will benefit by assessing the relationships in your life. ALL of them. Ask: do you feel free to be who you are? Time to connect to the part of you that is brilliantly authentic and true. Cut dead wood.

LeoLEO: Putting energy into the body, health and physical well being brings the best results! Ask: are you getting enough exercise every day? Loving your good? It’s time to listen to your body, really listen, and respond. Let go of disappointment, now.

VirgoVIRGO: Creativity springs from a well of new, or renewed romance. Write, play, choreograph, sing, act. Ask: are you allowing for the creative gifts in your heart? Be ready to let the inner child out and the opportunities in! Clean slate!

A Few Thoughts on Power

kimfalconer:

This post by the Symbolreader is perfect for today’s Transform with Transits call on Pluto – an archetype of hidden, and not so hidden power.
“The roots of true power are indestructible and accessible to all.”
Thank you, Monika!

They alone remain to affront and disrupt the power of business.”

Before I started reading James Hillman’s Kinds of Power I tried to ponder and intuit what power means for me.

the keeper of secrets (oil on canvas) by Crispin Korschen

Astro-LOA Tip O’ the Month launches with Mercury Direct. Oh boy! Give the trickster planet a few days to get revved up before making big decisions, but you’ll feel an increased surety and focus right away. For major events and declarations, go for it with Mercury out of the ‘shadow zone’ – July 15th.

Between now and then, take into account your reflections, insights and understandings gained over the last three weeks. What have you learned from any delays, down time, or disruptions? Have eyes for the gifts!

On the 12th, Mercury is into Cancer again, bringing to light a situation or challenge from early June. Now it’s much more obvious how to proceed.

The Full moon at 20 Capricorn is a wonderful time to exhale, forget about all the plates you have spinning, and let go. You could drop a toleration or two, a grudge or a limiting belief. It’s like an elixir. Really!(Asteroid Icarus at 3 Capricorn, opposite Mercury and the Moon supports this toleration release!)

A wonderful ingress this month is on the 16th when Jupiter makes his once every 12 year sojourn into Leo. Think big heart, massive creative inspiration and full, magnanimous generosity. It’s playful and dramatic. You want to have fun with this for the next year! Check where Leo reigns in your natal chart for insights and a party plan. Jupiter boosts the spirits and instills confidence, an important component in any deliberate creations.

The power of the vibrations of confidence, commitment and belief . . . can turn dark horses into champions, long shots into heroes and underdogs into top dogs. -Jeannette Maw

On the 18th, Venus into Cancer turns passion into compassion. You’ll want to demonstrate your ‘caring’ core value in whatever area of life you have this sign. For example, 11th house is caring for friends, 7th house, nurturing committed/biz partnerships, 6th house, pets . . . where’s yours? On the 22nd, the Sun is into Leo, following the path pre-paved by Jupiter, and catching up on the 24th, a rocking day to expand your goals and explore new horizons. Whatever excites you today is a go!

Note: Changes of direction: July 20th sees Saturn turn Direct at 16 Scorpio. This is stabilizing, with increased ambition to accomplish what was started in November 2013. July 21 Uranus turns retrograde at 16 Aries and will journey ‘backwards’ until Dec 22, 2014. Uranus represents the urge to change and disrupt any ingrained, limiting habit patterns. The Rx period represents a more settled time where what we put in motion in March/April 2014 will start to show results. The rebel takes 5.

Mars is into Scorpio on the 25th where he will squares the Leo New Moon. The power to cut out old habit patterns that no longer serve, and to focus on a powerful, life changing intention is yours. Put your mind to it for incredible results.

Mercury, zipping forward now at supersonic speed, enters Leo, reactivating the recent energy of Jupiter into this sign. What you set in motion mid-month is going to blast off in August! Amazing!

Have a wonderful July!

The Charmer by John Waterhouse

Astro-LOA Flash: The new moon is linked to mystical, magical Neptune in Pisces, great for the imaginations, so dream big and often during this time. You know the drill. Set an intention on or near the time, and fuel it with your heart. Pluto is opposite the New Moon, so make it meaningful, and transformational.

Hint: Ask, what do I love about life? How can I nurture that more?

For me, practicing reverence for all life, and supporting organizations like the Ian Somerhalder Foundation with projects like the ISF Book Club. You?

NEW MOON 27th of June @5 CANCER
LA   – Friday – 1:09 am
NY   – Friday – 4:09 am
LON – Friday – 9:09 am
SYD – Friday – 6:09 pm

AriesARIESYour point of focus is towards home, family and emotional security. What ground do you stand on? Have you staked your claim? This is a time to choose your boundaries and stick to instincts and inspiration.

TaurusTAURUSPay attention to communication and moving from A to B, as you say what needs to be said. What energy can you stir up? Is there a project or study to complete? This is a time to express yourself brilliantly.

GeminiGEMINI: You’re ready to move forward with a new plan, project or goal but there’s a tiny quark in your way. Ask what it is that you believe about yourself and your future that wants adjusting. Tune in and live fore values.

CancerCANCER: This is your personal New Moon and a time to assess your basic goals around career and relationship. Have they grown and changed with your personal evolution? If not, the time has come. Refresh!

LeoLEO: Your dreams have never been so full of promise as they are now! Fall into your imagination and visions. There you will find answers to every current consideration, challenge or dilemma. Cat naps bring epiphanies!

VirgoVIRGO: This New Moon asks that you reevaluate your goals for the future. It all begins in the present moment. Hung out there lately? Take some quiet time with a close friend and script your awakening desires. Don’t hold back!

LibraLIBRA: This is a breakthrough time for your career, mission or profession. Think social identity on the rise! Tune into what you really want today, not what you were after a year ago. If you think they are the same, look again!

ScorpioSCORPIO: This New Moon is going to take you places you’ve never been before. All you have to do is open your mind to fresh vistas and surprising landscapes. The fun thing is, you won’t be traveling along. Buckle up!

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: The New Moon in your solar 8th house intensifies experiences of intimacy, trust and risk. Don’t panic. This can be a revitalizing time where you discover new aspects of yourself. Previous experience not required.

CapricornCAPRICORN: Relationship status quo is going through metamorphosis. This is an opportunity for creative change that gets your love life more in alignment with your authentic self. Seriously, why resist such a gift?

AquariusAQUARIUS: Pesky health issues or daily routine snags are about to resolve beautifully, all on their own. This means you don’t have to micro-manage a thing. Your only task is to keep making choices that ring true, for you.

piscesPISCES: The three C’s, children, creativity and comradery, influence your next lunar month. Use this time to get your thoughts straight about how you express, connect and mentor. Expect everything to fall into place!

Notes on Uranus – the Great Awakener

Awakening

Awakening by Maja Sommersted

I’m posting the notes for the Transform with Transits call here as a few people where having trouble downloading them. This is all basic info on Uranus, to get us started.

Think of Uranus as one of the most exciting planets to work with in deliberate creation as this is where we blast through glass ceilings and break out of limiting beliefs! It’s insanely powerful energy!

Uranus has an eccentric orbit between Saturn and Neptune, taking 84 years to make one complete journey around the sun (on complete journey through the Zodiac). He rules Aquarius and is exalted in Scorpio.

He spends 7 years in each sign (where we get the saying, “the 7 year itch,” and represents a desire for freedom, independence, individuation, originality, eccentricity, unconventionality, and the relentless breaking out of fixed cultural and social paradigms.

Basically, he’s a rebellion waiting to happen, and he doesn’t wait long.

He rules all things sudden, unexpected, erratic and unpredictable.

Being slow moving, the house position is very important as it will be more personal. The sign shows is nature of our individuality, our drive for uniqueness, and the way we break free of limitations and cultural restraints. The house shows where we experience unexpected changes and the chance to grow as an individual. It’s where things tend to get ‘weird’.

Uranus has a very extreme orbit, the tilt of the axis being so extreme (see image below) it alternates between periods of 21 years of night in the northern hemisphere (21 years of day in the south, with 21 years of more normal night and day (no doubt the model for George R R Martin’s world building in Game of Thrones) . . .  It’s all in the tilt of the axis.

The natal position of Uranus tells us where we can be “night and day”, individualistic, nonconforming, high-spirited and inventive (and sometimes radical, willful and detached). Aspects to Uranus bring these qualities out and you can imagine that the mix more harmoniously with, say Mars than they do with Moon or Venus.

By transit, Uranus Awakens. This energy coincides with changing the status quo, blasting us through glass ceilings, limitations and ruts. It’s a renewal and when we are open to change, its powerfully transformational.

It’s also powerfully transformational when we resist change, but the sensations are more of disruption that thrill. It’s all in how we perceive the energy! There is a fine line with Uranus between eccentric and unstable.

Note: If you want to see quickly were a client is feeling stuck, burdened or limited, note where Saturn is by transit. If you want to see where life is changing, throwing up radical new challenges, look to Uranus. Just spotting the houses these planets are transiting, and looking to the natal to see how comfortable they are with these containing and releasing energies can identify their biggest key to getting life on track. We build with Saturn, releasing old limitations/stories, and we awaken and evolve with Uranus, freeing up the past and setting new goals.

Remember: Uranus is the great awakener. Flow with the energy for the highest results!

Archetype of Trickster – Clown and the Fool by Tony Crisp

Mercury turns retrograde on June 7th, (see times below) and it’s honing up to be a corker. I mean that in the best possible way. If you’ve been throwing yourself into the ‘wrong for you ‘ direction, you hit the skids and anything not tied down goes flying. The best possible way to deal with this is allow it to nurture you. That’s right. Nurture. The apparent backward motion of Mercury is a time to check in to you thoughts, sort through and, in the grace of your own time, hold onto the ones that serve you and release the ones that do not. Simple, easy and relaxed.

If you find you’re getting wound up into a twist, consider that you might not have released the thoughts (plans, expectations, tolerations, assumptions) that aren’t in alignment with your authentic self. Revisit, rethink, reconsider . . . rewind and revision your life however you want it to be. You’re the boss here, not some outside force of telecommunications, technology, physiology or meteorology. You call the shots. Stand up, and do so! If it involves you taking time away from the usual routine, then do so!

Mercury Rx Times June 7th 2014 @ 3 Cancer
LA   -  Sat  -  4:56 am
NY   -  Sat  -  7:56 am
LON -  Sat  – 12:56 pm
SYD -  Sat  –   9:56 pm

Recap:

With Mercury Rx, you want to rethink, reconsider, review, reevaluate ideas and FEELINGS and THOUGHTS in the house where Mercury is transiting. Ask, what constitutes love and nurturing to me? The most primary way you can improve your life at this time is to boost self-Love! Yes, that’s it. Nurture your own heart.

Love yourself despite what you thought were your shortcomings: your character flaws, your love handles, low credit score, police record, your failed marriage, cluttered house, negative thoughts. Love yourself unconditionally. – Jeannette Maw – read more on how to boost self-love!

Remember Mercury Rx is a Trickster energy. It comes along when we are stuck, or a feeling trapped, out of touch with authenticity of SELF. When we get into such a state, sooner or later the Trickster will blow the doors and windows open so we can breathe fresh air again. In the sign of Cancer, the trickster turns our inner, emotional world upside down, so we can get ourselves correct.

Here are scopes based on the ‘solar houses’ sign (your sun sign), or the actual house Mercury is transiting, if you know it. Read all as Mercury goes from Cancer back to Gemini (possibly two different houses for you). Love to hear of your experiences in the comments!

AriesARIES: Mercury in the 4th house – Thoughts turn to home life, family and symbiotic connections. Give yourself enough ‘me’ time to appreciate recent inner growth and development. Ask what family means to you. Home?  Sanctuary. Is there anything you believe that could be limiting your experience of others? Listen. Love. Reflect!

TaurusTAURUS: Mercury in the 3rd house – The Mercury Rx puts the Trickster in control of your tongue. You say one thing and they hear another. Emails, sans body language, get misconstrued. Don’t even think about sending text msg without punctuation. But it’s excellent for revising manuscripts or creative projects put on the back burner. Go there!

GeminiGEMINI: Mercury in the 2nd house – Use this Mercury Rx to get in touch with what really gives you a sense of peace and happiness, then let go of the outmoded core values and actions. Awareness is the first step. It will lead to skill and talent development that is more authentic than you ever though possible. Expect a clean fresh $$ Vibe.

CancerCANCER: Mercury in the first house – Mercury Rx meanders through your home, work, Self and relationship life. Everything! Best reflect on what you believe about what you do, where you do it, whom you do it with. How? Just set an intention to notice the things you like about your life and smile. Exhale and limitations are going, going, gone.

LeoLEO: Mercury in the 12th house - With Mercury Rx in your solar 12th house, it’s time to go ‘in’ and listen to your dreams. Not daydream/Dollhouse fantasies of achievement, goals, challenges and actions, but really sink deep into the depths of your soul. What messages are welling up from there? Watch for synchronicity, tune into feelings, be of service.

VirgoVIRGO: Mercury in the 11th house – Mercury Rx in your 11th house of friends and groups can turn the usual gatherings into a mix of emoticons, all rolling about in different directions. The question is how do you feel? Allow for a new view when it comes to social connections, and find ways to relax amid the tension. Gems emerge when you aren’t looking.

LibraLIBRA: Mercury in the 10th house – Career, mission or profession can feel like a dream time journey, with the auto focus weaving in and out! This is good news! For the next three weeks you let go of trying to micromanage your future and ‘make things happen.’ Let your neurons relax so the universe can open new doors to infinite possibilities!

ScorpioSCORPIO: Mercury in the 9th house -Travel or study plans turn into the trickster’s playground for the next three weeks. Deep breaths. Remember, it’s not about forging ahead right now, but finding peace and serenity in the midst of contrast. Take time out to reconsider your world view. Is it what you think, or what you are expected to think?

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: Mercury in the 8th house – Mercury Rx in your house of shared resources has you reconsidering any joint financial arrangements, both income and debt. As you sift through possibilities, you’ll discover creative ways to organize and restructure the boundaries to your liking. You decide, but not yet. Let it marinate for a while. Go have fun.

CapricornCAPRICORN: Mercury in the 7th house – Communication with partners, practical or intimate, goes a bit zany– muddled and/or blurred! It’s not the best time to come to any conclusions as wires get crossed. Use your gut feelings to make choices that can’t be delayed, and ask what you believe about partnerships. Rethink your relationships, without judgement.

AquariusAQUARIUS: Mercury in the 6th house - Mercury Rx through your 6th house of well-being says reconsider your lifestyle. Is this really what you want, or are you there because of circumstances ‘beyond your control?’ (ha!) Take stock of your nutrition, exercise, healthy care, comfort zone and routine. Start with what you believe about your body! More Self-Love! More magic!

piscesPISCES: Mercury in the 5th house – This is a time to go into cruise control on the creative realm and practice the art of allowing. Think play, recreate and relax. Consider where you can expand your beliefs and live more in the ‘now’. The goal is to drop judgment and experience life in the red hot moment. And it will be red hot!

GoodVibeAstroD52cR06bP01ZL-Hoover6b_sml

Happy Mercury Rx. Have fun as you slow down the pace and give everything a re-think!

Book of Books by Vladamir Kush

Book of Books by Vladamir Kush

With the New Moon in Gemini trine Mars in Libra think fresh ides, insights and of course, a powerful backdrop to set new intentions. It also falls into the ‘Gemini decanate’, meaning it’s talkative, curious and flighty, all about multitasking. The fluid and flexible, quicksilver, eternal student is unleashed.

Gemini says, “Lets TALK” and this new moon is all about the conversation. To add dazzle, mystery and intrigue, it is also square Neptune, the unseen real, what lies behind the veil. Things may not be all that they seem, or what people say they are. Double takes required.

Everything that deceives may be said to enchant. – Plato

NEW MOON @7 GEMINI
LA  – Wed  – 11:41 am
NY  – Wed  -  2:41 pm
Lon – Wed  -  7:41 pm
SYD – Thur -  4:41 am

The Gemini new moon asks us to think about the brainstorm, the free flow of ideas, the absences of judgment, the potential for something original to rise from the recombination of pre-loved ideas. This is not gossip, Q & A, dictation, dissertation or denouncement. It’s not teaching or learning in any traditional sense. This is Open Mind, and in Gemini, it’s a journey for two, one that can bring lasting transformation.

To amp this process up even more, look to where 7 degrees of Gemini is in your natal chart and immerse yourself in the environment of that house. Not sure how to find the transit? Here is a tutorial. If all efforts still have you scratching your head, ask for help in the comments. I, or another savvy member of the 11th House will help.

Happy New Moon, Everyone. I’d love to hear about the conversations, brainstorms and new intentions!

AriesARIES/Moon in the 3rd house: Reevaluate all modes of communication beginning with internet server plan, hardware, software then leading to your own voice. How are you using it? Suggestions: Start a new course of study, join a community project, get friendly with the written or spoken word. Ask: is there anything you’d like to learn?

TaurusTAURUS/Moon in the 2nd house: Go over the taxes, current invoices and bills. No, it’s not boring; it’s practical. Get your financial world in order. Suggestions: Indulge yourself in all things sensual — baths, long walks in nature, massage, fine food, enlightening vistas. Ask: Do you know your world perfectly by touch?

GeminiGEMINI/Moon in the 1st house: Time to rethink the shop window. Is your wardrobe, hair style and way of being in the world a match to the current you? Suggestions: This is a new chapter in your life. Open the door to your dreams by showing up!Say YES! Ask: is your life an accurate reflection of who you want to be?

CancerCANCER/Moon in the 12th house: This moon is about letting your Ego step aside, for a moment, and allowing for your compassion to unfold without limits or judgments. Suggestions: Commune with your unconscious. Take time to record and reflect on your dreams. Ask: are you deep in the well of your creative heart?

LeoLEO/Moon in the 11th house: The focus is on your goals for the future and who it is that travels with you on the journey. Stop and check the crowd! Suggestions: Remember friends and like minded others are a source of inspiration. Hang out with your own kind! Ask: Is everything in my life a true match for me?

VirgoVIRGO/Moon in the 10th house: Social identity, mission, profession gets a thorough makeover as the career takes a turn for the better (in the long run). Think more responsibility for greater rewards. Suggestions: You have to LOVE what you do to make it sing! Ask: Does your work life make you smile?

LibraLIBRA/Moon in the 9th house: New horizons are going to bring fresh insights. You gain inner perspective by going off the beaten path. Suggestions: Take your mind, body or spirit somewhere it’s never been before—meditate, travel, read, expand. Ask: are you holding yourself back from your real dreams?

ScorpioSCORPIO/Moon in the 8th house: Revelations flood in when it comes to shared resources and co-creations. You are making big changes in this area of life. Suggestions: Intimacy and intensity is what will light your fire now. Go ahead and take a risk. Ask: are you playing it safe with your emotions or setting them free?

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS/Moon in the 7th house: The Eclipse is all about re-visioning your relationships so they are an authentic match to you! You’ll be seeing much clearer at this time. Suggestions: be honest with yourself about what you want. Ask: do you feel free to be who you are with loved ones? If not, why not?

CapricornCAPRICORN/Moon in the 6th house: If you’ve been on auto-pilot, it’s time to stop and take charge of your vessel! ie make choices that resonate with who you are right now and where you want to go. Suggestions: Put energy into the body, health and physical well-being! Ask: are you getting enough exercise?

AquariusAQUARIUS/Moon in the 5th house: This eclipse activates your child-like spirit of joy. Will you take her out to play? Suggestions: Creativity and healing springs from a well of romance. Think dates, moves, dinners, walks under the stars. Entertain, and be entertained! Ask: are you allowing for love in and out of your heart?

Athene – Prepaving with Power

Goddess Athene - Clarity - Spirit of Women Australian Wildflower Essence

Goddess Athene – Clarity – Spirit of Women Australian Wildflower Essence

Hi Everyone,

Some of you know I’m in the last two weeks of completing my Masters Degree, which explains the scarcity of posts this month. But, I’m nearly there, and taking a moment off to share an Astro-LOA Flash for the Weekend: Pallas Athene into Virgo!

Each of the FOUR MAJOR asteroid goddesses  (Ceres, Juno, Vesta, Pallas Athene) represents an aspect of the feminine—an aspect of inner relationship to the anima—that is meaningful to both men and women. When strong by house placement, sign or aspect in the chart and especially when linked with an inner planet or angle, greater understanding of our relationship needs can be gained by their study.

Ah, would that flashing-eyed Athena might choose to love thee even as then she cared exceedingly for glorious Odysseus [220] in the land of the Trojans, where we Achaeans suffered woes. For never yet have I seen the gods so manifestly shewing love, as Pallas Athena did to him, standing manifest by his side. If she would be pleased to love thee in such wise and would care for thee at heart, then would many a one of them utterly forget marriage.” –Apollodorus

Athene’s brand of love is protective, supportive and reportedly asexual. At heart, she is very much her father’s daughter. Leaping from the wound in Zeus’s head after Hephaestus, or perhaps Prometheus, split it with an axe, Athene was born full grown, dressed in golden armor and screaming a war cry. She proceeded to protect heroic men, guard the city of Athens and was worshiped as the goddess of war-craft, strategy, craftsmanship and wisdom. Unlike other Olympians, Athene was completely trusted by her father Zeus. She even got to use his thunderbolts and aegis. She holds no resentment towards him for swallowing whole her mother Metis, goddess of wisdom, and seems to reserve her attachments and allegiance to the king of the gods alone. Daddy’s girl, but oh boy is she strong!

Born without a mother, Pallas Athene is in some ways a magnificent and beautiful extension of Zeus (Jupiter, expansion, optimism, new possibilities), representing pure intellect untouched and uncontaminated by the body. His favorite child, Zeus indulges her every wish, even in the face of censure from the other Olympians. She is often depicted with a crested helm, shield and spear, and wearing the snake-trimmed aigis cloak wrapped around her breast and arm, adorned with the head of the Gorgon (more snakes – transformation). She’s also linked the the owl (wisdom). Read more about Athene and Medusa here.

Just as Pluto/Hades may be seen as a phallic representation of the matriarchal principal of death and regeneration, so Athene may embody a female image of the masculine principals of rational thinking, will and intellect. She is a representation of objectivity, fairness and justice (very Libra like, in this way). The power of her sword is as keen as the cutting edge of her mind and she was often called to arbitrate disputes, her impartial decisions being final. Athene takes us out of the world of raw instinct and desire, educating us to the realm of objective thought, unbiased choice and organized strategy. Pallas Athene, although regarded as femininely beautiful, is an androgynous figure, a goddess at home in the masculine realm. Athene was also adamantly celebrate.

Her avoidance of sexual intimacy with men, women or gods is a contrast to other “virgin” goddesses who, although they aligned themselves with no man, they still enjoyed the passions of lovemaking and rearing the resultant offspring. Athene, by most accounts, never gave birth and had no direct descendent. Although she shunned intimacy, she was loved and pursued by Helios, Hephaestus and some say Hercules. None of these gods or men won her over, and never, it seems, did Eros or Aphrodite cause her to fall in love, at least not in the traditional sense. Interesting!

But, Athene was passionate about her crafts, battles and the heroes she protected. She is reported to have transformed the blood of Medusa into a healing potion and is associated with the medicinal arts. Creative, multi-talented and dedicated, Athene may not lay with man/woman or god, but she does not withdraw from them either. She seeks the company of men in particular and relates to them as their divine counselor, protector and guide.

As Athene ingresses into the sign of earthy, sensual Virgo, she ignites Cor Regulus, the heart of the lion, representing courage, integrity and strength, our insights brim with life. New possibilities are seen and where there was chaos, a path through the forest appears. Think about where you have 0 degrees of Virgo in your chart. The house, angle or planet(s) you find there represents your wellspring of insights, objectivity and integrity – the perfect place to initiate Jeannette Maw’s practice of Pre-Paving. Also, think of this energy as acting on the body, squaring your shoulders, lengthening your spine and giving you that “wonder woman” stance, invincible, empowered, undaunted.

Where is Athene at 0 Virgo in your chart? What are you planning for? Comments and questions welcome.

John William Waterhouse, “The Siren”

Reading the Odyssey in a superb translation of Robert Fitzgerald is like listening to the most delightful music. No interpretation can possibly replace the sheer pleasure of experiencing Homer’s talent. The opening lines of Book XII read:

 “The ship sailed on, out of the Ocean Stream,

riding a long swell on the open sea

for the Island of Aiaia.

Summering Dawn

has dancing grounds there, and the Sun his rising;

but still by night we beached on a sand shelf

and waded in beyond the line of breakers

to fall asleep, awaiting the Day Star.”

On the island of Aiaia, Circe receives Odysseus and his companions, who have returned from Hades, with a lavish banquet. Later at night she tells Odysseus in great detail about his next adventures, what perils await him and what precautions he must take. It seems that at this moment Odysseus…

Hi everyone,

Our next course at GVA is called Transform with Transits. It’s a 10 week – 10 call exploration of the planetary transits and how they can boost your deliberate creation, get you in line with your authentic core values and give you the savvy to work and play with the energy at hand instead of resisting, or struggling against it. It’s a much better way to fly! (check out the introduction to transits video tutorial Part 1 and Part 2 here).

On week one, we start with the Moon, the ‘planet’ that transits everything in your natal chart every month. From there, each week we’ll build out through the solar system until we reach Pluto and beyond. We cover transits and progressions, orbs, timing, predictive techniques but mostly how to leverage the energy of each transit to work with your natural evolution, not against it.

On each call, we’ll be using your charts as examples (for those who would like to) and of course the course forum will be covering all the Q’s and A’s.
