“Full Sun” by Crispin Korchen

Hey everyone! Jeannette  and I have a new course starting tomorrow over at GoodVibeAstrology. comPurpose, Path and Identity Expansion.

We’re leveraging personal astrology to boost law of attraction, aka manifesting skills.

By tapping talents, skills, aptitude and authentic life pathways – learning how to identify with and follow your personal brand of bliss – you’ll begin to manifest your deepest driving desires.

Over the 6 week course, we’ll explore your path to empowerment via the astrological indicators in the natal chart, including asteroid Karma, and through current transits and progressions.

At the end of this course you will hold in your hands a personalized Rx to activate your sense of empowerment, purpose and direction in life. You’ll also have your Astro-empowerment crystal, synched to your horoscope, to enhance the insights and epiphanies you’ve gained.

Each week has a main topic and will be presented in a recorded group call for you to download and listen to. (These discussion calls are recorded if you can’t make the live call.) You’ll also receive PDF downloads, video tutorials, and have access to the Q&A discussion forum. Includes ‘Hands On’ sessions with student charts. There isn’t anywhere else you’ll find such a strong complement of savvy astrology with LOA expertise.

See you there!

Duration: 6 weeks
Cost: Free to GVA Circle Members. If you are interested in taking it as a standalone, please Email Kim & Jeannette for available seats.

Course Outline

Week #1 – The Sun as Identity Introduction to the astrological chart as a guide to Purpose, path and Identity, and how the law of attraction can set you on a road to fulfilling your desires. You’ll explore signs of talents, natural resources, empowerment and where to go to develop these qualities – particularly the Sun. Focus is on the Sun and solar aspects, and the notions of authenticity and awareness. Full of LOA techniques to help you align with who you want to be.

Week #2 – The Ascendant as the Magic Mirror Here you explore the Ascendant sign, decan, dwad and aspects and the nature and benefits of a fluid, shifting identity. Different situations call for different aspects of yourself, and the Ascendant can help us morph into alignment with just what we desire. You’ll focus on the evolving nature of the life path and spot those signposts in each others charts. This gets you into the perfect-for-you energy alignment to be everything you can possibly be.

Week #3 – The Nodes and Acting ‘As If’ Here you will discover the Lunar nodes and how they describe the paths, choices and forks in the road. Learn more about your own empowerment, what is well developed and what wants more focus as you explore this power points in the chart. The idea of ‘acting as if’ is practiced, on the group call and in the forum, along with other techniques to help you shift into the person you want to be.

Week #4 – Releasing Resistance; Embracing Excitement Consciously or unconsciously, all of us can resist our greatest potential, and astrology and the law of attraction are powerful indicators to identify where we ‘hide’ our path to success, and why. This week identifies any denial, releases resistance and amps up your greatest self-awareness! You will discover where your asteroid ‘Karma’ is, what it means and the reason certain goals and ideas excite you so much.

Week #5 – Making Choices When the Time is Right Often the path to Purpose, Path and Power is paved with choices. Which way do we go? The timing, and direction, of opportunities is revealed in the astrological chart, synchronicities and awareness through appreciation of what we attract. This week looks at transits, progressions and how you can leverage your astrology to make the ‘right for you’ choices and live the life you desire.

Week #6 – Hands on Chart Work and LOA Tools The final week includes a call-in discussion and forum participation resulting in your Astro-LOA Rx for boosting your sense of purpose, life direction and awareness of fluid identities. You’ll finish up this course with a clear set of goals and Astro-LOA tools, including your personal planetary crystal guide designed specifically for you to increase your sense of identity, power and ability to attract what it is you desire.

Tip o’ the Week – Mutual Reception Magic

If you received the Newsletter this week (let me know if you didn’t but want to) you’ll have seen this week’s Astro-LOA, but I wanted to focus on the mutual reception (the three with the red arrows in the image) and hear your thoughts.

NOTE: Jupiter’s in Leo (Sun’s natural sign), Sun’s in Capricorn (Saturn’s natural sign) and Saturn’s in Sagittarius (Jupiter’s natural sign).

Think of it as uniting these energies, allowing us to tap into the sun’s consciousness, Saturn’s authenticity and Jupiter’s expansion.

This connection is going to last a while longer as Sun into Aquarius is still Saturn ruled.

To explore this, look at where these three players are in your chart right now and watch for correlations.

Tips for the upcoming week:

Be the contrast is about the Mars/Saturn square, and a powerhouse mutual reception. It’s a ‘spartan up’ sort of energy. Can you embrace it?

Have eyes for the gifts is all about Uranus on the South node. It’s a time where the shock of realizations, often from a memory or person from the past, puts you in a state of renewed clarity and appreciation. Visualize the buried treasure.

Allow, allow, allow – this is the Mars/Neptune conjunction, representing the part that many of resist – the ALLOWING of our desires to manifest in our physical reality. We don’t always easily practice it. (Especially when we think it really counts!) Read more here from the GoodVibeCoach  . . .

Contrast as Noun or Verb

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Ocean – Desert Contrast, Wall321

Astro-LOA Flash. We’ve got contrast incoming a la transiting Mars in Pisces square Saturn in Sagittarius. Think: action checked, and/or leading to a surprise outcome.

Don’t panic!

Contrast is what makes art-life-art so incredibly interesting. The path turns the corner and wham, the last person we expect to see is standing in our way, or the building’s gone, or we’re not in Kansas anymore. Suffice it to say the Astro-weather for the next few days has a vibe of uncertainty.

Note: contrast isn’t something to avoid, or fear! For one, we wouldn’t have a story without it, nor would we have much of an exciting life. The thing to remember about contrast is that it can be a noun or a verb.

Contrast

1. Noun – the state of being strikingly different from something else in juxtaposition or close association. Red apples are in contrast to yellow lemons.

2. Verb – to differ strikingly. Her high income contrasted his low one.

With the noun, we experience the difference as a state of being. With the verb, we ‘see’ that we differ, and it often has a value judgment attached where different = wrong.

From: http://www.true-node.com/eph1 CLICK to enlarge.

From: http://www.true-node.com/eph1 CLICK to enlarge ephemeris.

The bottom line with contrast is, we have a choice to experience a state of striking difference with an “isn’t this interesting” approach, or we can get caught up in the action of differing, which can feel like something to fix.

Spending time contemplating our approach to contrast is supportive now as Mars urges us forward toward our dreams while Saturn puts the brakes on, asking that we check and recheck everything.

Think how helpful this is!

We get the chance to tune in and discover if the things we’re striving for (Mars) are still authentic goals (Saturn). It’s not about forging ahead blindfolded.

So tune in, reflect on what you really want (as opposed to what others expect you to want) and be the noun. Be the experience without judgment.

Renewed actions come later, after the new moon!

Have a great weekend!

Hey everyone! This is a RE-BLOG from the GoodVibeBlog. I thought she said it so well, I’d just press RB.

Do check out our podcast on what your moon wants you to know and feel free to comment on YOUR moon sign, placement and how she fits into your empowerment and deliberate creation mo. xxxKim

What Your Moon Sign Wants You to KnowFrom Jeannette at the GoodVibeBlog

Hey, here’s something you might want to know about …

Last year hundreds of LOA savvy creators joined Kim and I for a variety of our Astro-LOA courses.

That’s where we learn how to use our personal astrology to align to abundance, business success, and whatever else we desire.

We had a blast and this year we have several new courses planned. (Starting with Purpose, Path & Power later this month.)

But here’s what I wanted to tell you …

Instead of charging a couple hundred dollars for each of those courses like we did last year – in 2015 we’re offering all courses (past and present) to all members for no extra charge.

Membership is $29/month, which you can cancel any time. Courses are downloadable. The list of past courses you get immediate access to include:

  • Astrology for Deliberate Creators
  • Sex Secrets (What Your Astrology Can Tell You)
  • Path to Abundance
  • Transform with Transits
  • Astro-Biz (5 Steps to Rock Star Entrepreneurship)

(You can buy those past courses separately still, but members automatically get them free as part of their enrollment perks, of which there are many.)

It’s the sort of thing that goes in the “helluvadeal” category, if you ask me.

For a sampler of how we marry up astrology with law of attraction, you can hear this quick tutorial on using your moon sign to practice more effective self-love.

Turns out each sign has its own favorite way to experience love, so knowing yours can ring your bell even better – and conscious creators know what an essential piece self-love is for our alignment!

Enjoy that moon/self-love sample, and know that we’d love to see you join us at join us at Good Vibe Astrology to plug into your personal astrology magic throughout the year.

Sixty Eight days of Exaltation

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Aquarius

Aquarius from Paul Kiritsis, Down the Rabbit Hole

Astro-LOA Flash: In orb of the full moon, Mercury, messenger of the gods, enters the sign of Aquarius and remains there for 68 days. This is no ordinary transit; it is Mercury’s once a year sojourn through the sign of its exaltation!

Consider this the best position for the planet of communication, thoughts, ideas and knowledge. Watch the Mercury by transit video tutorial here.

In esoteric astrology, it is said that Uranus, modern ruler of Aquarius, lends intuitiveness and innovation to the intellectual gifts of Mercury. No fog. No muddle. Just pure awareness.

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!

Click to Expand

Click to Expand

With the lengthy stay in the sign of the Water-bearer, we have plenty of time to utilize this energy, making brilliant choices for career, home, creativity and relating. Remember, Mercury is the planet of consciousness, exalted in the higher octave of Uranus/Aquarius. Talk about a chance to expand!

Usually staying in one sign for a month or so, the longer transit in Aquarius is due to the upcoming retrograde period where Mercury appears to slow down, turn around and go backwards. You can leverage the Rx by taking time to rethink decisions made over 2014, reflecting and readjusting as insights appear.

And they will appear!

Mercury is a trickster archetype, as is Uranus, ruler of Aquarius. Combine the two and you have surprise, in all its forms. The key is to suspend judgment (it’s neither ‘good’ nor ‘bad’ but energy, just as it is) and embrace the opportunity to expand.

In the mythologies of many people, the mythic figure who is the embodiment of the unexpected (synchronicity) is the Trickster, who steps godlike through the cracks and flaws in the ordered world of ordinary reality, bringing good luck and bad, profit and loss.(Combs and Holland, 2000)

More on the retrograde period as it approaches, but for now, check out the ephemeris above and mark important dates (transits through your Aquarius house(s) and aspects to planets). As with all transits, awareness is key. Use this energy to enhance every aspect of your life!

Powerhouse Full Moon

crossroad2This is a POWERHOUSE  full moon, one of the triggers for the ongoing Uranus – Pluto square. And don’t forget the Nodes . . .

Jeannette Maw and I will be talking about this on January 6th/7th, on our monthly 2015 Year Ahead – Talkshoe call. Feel free to join in, or stream online. GoodVibeAstrology.com.

Meanwhile, whatever has been brewing – kicking up dust, getting under your skin yet still exciting you to achieve and accomplish more – since early 2012 or so, is heating up.

There could be some minor explosions, not necessarily in a disastrous context, but perhaps in the form of epiphanies, confirmations, validations or inspirations to clear the air.

Think of this as a opportunity to kiss goodbye anything you’ve been ‘tolerating’ and put your energy into things that make you smile. Period. 2015 is the year to connect to inner guidance. Start now. Listen. Appreciate. Respond.

Sign by sign hints below. What’s happening for you on this full moon? Comments always welcome.

FULL MOON @14 Cancer
January 4th/5th
LA– Sunday – 8:54 pm
NY – Sunday – 11:54 pm
LON – Monday – 4:54 am
SYD – Monday – 3:54 pm

AriesARIES: This is time to bring projects to fruition. With your 4th house home sector activated, you want to tidy up loose ends and check and recheck all goals and directives. Are you headed in the direction you really want to go? Do repairs. De-clutter, inside and out. Adjust course. Laugh at trouble!

TaurusTAURUS: Communication with others, especially those you see on a daily basis, has the focus now. There is a surprise there! Suddenly people are saying things that resonate with your soul and give you instant clarity on what step to take next, or not. Either way, the support, or contrast, is instructional. Listen in!

GeminiGEMINI: Any contrasting views around money or shared resources will resolve with everyone’s best interest at heart. Everyone’s!. When it comes to core values and authenticity, you’ve got it all going on. It’s smoother sailing ahead. Hidden in the depths emerges a new talent or skill. Cherish it!

CancerCANCER: Your full moon of the year brings a change of heart. Whatever it is you’ve been brooding over, the worry dissolves! You are not going to live that way anymore. Prep for a mini-identity revelation which leads to authentic growth. You feel right when you own your power. Head that way.

LeoLEO: Whatever focus you’ve had on your daily work and ritual routine, it’s time to rein it in and do some soul searching. Venture more deeply into the realm of your dreams, the language of synchronicity and the power of myth. Spend some quiet time on your own. The Muse has something to communicate!

VirgoVIRGO: Your friends and associates want you to step up in a new way. Could be a leadership opportunity and a chance to redirect goals, or even an organization, towards greater functionality, greater compassion and creativity. Set any reserve aside and rise to the occasion. Your instigate renewal and illumination.

LibraLIBRA: This moon highlights more than your career, mission and profession: it’s about your life’s work. Tune into what you want and own it. You’ll get the notice and attention you need to take the next step. Think big, creative and productive. There is always more room at the top, for you.

ScorpioSCORPIO: Your beliefs about ‘reality’ are up for questioning and you can see the bigger picture, beyond cultural and social conditioning. This is a time to explore your core thoughts, inside and out. Ask which serve you, and then which could serve you better. The doors to expansion open.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: The attention turns away from personal security towards joint resources and shared intimacy. How are you connecting to others? Is there true communion? Sharing? Co-creating? Is your heart feeling in alignment with your goals and core values? Answers lead to a new path, new love.

CapricornCAPRICORN: This power lunation in your house of relationship highlights how you balance autonomy AND connection. The key word is balance. Both are authentic, and both deserve reverence and appreciation. Harmony is your goal, not isolation, or smothering. Seek the center of your heart, and live it!

AquariusAQUARIUS: This full moon asks you to assess your health and daily care of the body. Really look at what you eat, drink and do with the physical ‘you.’ The opportunity for clarity around any long-term complaints or symptoms is here. Eyes open. With these insight comes health, abundance and peace.

piscesPISCES: The light shines on your individuality, creative expression and the inner child at heart. Tune into to your sense of joy, play and romantic longings, and bring those aspects out into the world. Assess if you have time for adventures for the fun of it. If not, why not? Seriously, play heals.

Have a wonderful FULL MOON!

Namaste

Happy New Year – Astro-LOA Highlights for 2015

Christian Schloe – Surrealist Visions

On the eve of the New Year 2015, I thought it would be fun to hit the highlights and get us lined up to Pre-Pave the most fabulous year ever. I also wanted a go-to post to refer back to over the year, and dial in on the best way to set 2015 intentions!

Are you with me?

Over at GVA, Jeannette Maw and I will be doing a 12 month call series  to explore these highlights deeper –  Astro-Empower 2015 for GVA Circle Members. You can join us online, or dial in on the day. Everyone welcome.

Highlights of 2015

* The Grand Cardinal Cross ie Uranus square Pluto, Nodes and Luminary activation

This is basically the Uranus/Pluto square that has been in orb since 2010. It makes it’s final exact conjunction in MARCH. It may be helpful to look back over the last 5 years, especially checking in with early 2012, April/May 2013 and January 3/4, 2015 for insights into what’s been challenged, changed and evolved. They key here is to transform, from the inside out. If you are pointing the finger at someone else, or a situation(s), ask what it might have to do with you. This is your primary purpose in 2015, to address ‘where’ this aspect (and the transiting nodes) are activating your chart. If you aren’t sure, ask in the comments and we’ll help you discover it.

The Uranus/Pluto square, what my friend Mystic Medusa calls the Zap-Zone, is in orb all year, triggered to a peak on the following dates:

* Jan 4th, 2015: Full Moon at 14 Cancer
* Mar 16, 2015 – FINAL Uranus square Pluto 16 Aries/Capricorn
* Apr 4, 2014 – Full Moon Eclipse 14 Aries
* Apr 15, 2015 – Icarus conjunct Uranus 16 Aries
* Jul 15th, 2015: New Moon at 23 degrees Cancer

* Mercury Rx Cycles 2015

Mercury the trickster, planet of communication, messenger of the gods, is retrograde three times in 2015. This is like the 4 of Swords in the Tarot where we pause, slow down and rethink, reconsider, review and reevaluate ideas, feelings, plans and promises, particularly in the area of life indicated by the zodiac degrees. Check them out.

Here is a list of the times/degrees (EST – thank you Cafe Astrology)

* Chinese New Year of the Goat  – February 18/19, 2015

This is a very powerful New Moon and ‘changing of the guardians’.

LA – Feb 18 – 3:47 pm
NY – Feb 18 – 6:47 pm
Lon – -Feb 18 – 11:47 pm
Syd – – Feb 19 – 10:47 pm

We’ll do a call on this topic in February for sure!

* Mars-Venus and Eros-Psyche in Pisces with Neptune and Chrion and over the Zero Degree Aries Point!

A line up like this doesn’t happen every year. The last one may not have even been in your lifetime!

You’ll want to tune into your powers of attraction, passion and deepest desires where you find 0 Pisces to 0 Aries in your chart. Here’s the Ephemeris:

We’ll be doing a call specifically on this topic in February 2015 over at GVA. Keep an eye on the calendar or sign up as a GVA member if you want to delve deeper.

* The Season of the Eclipses

* March 20 – New Moon Eclipse @29 Pisces – This is the last degree of the last sign. Ask, “What will I expiate?” You give something back to the gods today.
* April 4 – Full Moon Eclipse @14 Libra – Activation of the Uranus – Pluto square. You get to see what is left to process. In @technicolor.
* September 13 – New Moon Eclipse @20 Virgo – Do the de-clutter of the year.
September 27 – Full Moon Eclipse @4 Aries – a full on physical body – love – check- in!

* Venus Rx in 2015

Periodically, the Synodic cycle has Venus turning retrograde once every 18 months or so. We are in for another one this year, a chance to reflect on our relationships, values, self-worth and esthetics.

Active from June to October, you’ll want to pre-pave this, big time! Look at your chart to find the range of degrees between 14 Leo and 0 Virgo. That is the house(s) you want to activate and immerse in for the best results.

More on this when the time comes.

* Jupiter in Leo and Virgo

Jupiter as an astrological archetype is know as the ‘Greater Benefic‘ It’s the largest planet in our solar system and is symbolic of large scale experiences – big wins, big times, big love. You get the picture.

Jupiter is optimistic, popular, expansive and generous. Some call him the ‘Cosmic Santa Clause’ (others reserve that title for Neptune) but all agree, Jupiter lifts our hopes, helps us aim high and shows us new horizons.

But what’s really going on when we experience this energy is we begin to believe in ourselves. That’s what makes it happen!

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

Confidence means you believe in yourself and where Jupiter changes signs, it symbolizes where we can amp up that belief and make things bigger! Check where Jupiter is transiting in late Leo / early Virgo and put your focus there in 2015!

* Saturn in and out of Scorpio

As Saturn, the planet of maturity, form, structure and ‘reality building’ glides into the sign of Sagittarius, we can get quite visionary, but he doesn’t stay there for long. From June to September 2015, Saturn is back into the tail end of Scorpio. You know, the one with the sting.

This is a powerful symbol of expansion, inner and outer, supporting awareness and releasing resistance in all it’s forms. In other words, dropping the deliberate creator denial. How? One way is to listening to the messages  via synchronicity, body talk, projection, events and dreams. More on that in the June GVA call. All welcome to join in.

Here’s to a happy, empowered and thrilling New Year. (check out a quick guide from Jeannette Maw for setting those intentions now.

Thank you for all your support and good wishes.

Happy 2015, Love and Light,

It’s the Dark Moon now until December 21st/22nd, SOLSTICE – the perfect time to reflect on the power and energy about to shift with the final New Moon of 2014. Dark moons are for rest, recuperation, meditation and quietude. Find a place, inner and outer, that represents peace to you and go there.

New Moon 0 Capricorn 06′
LA – Sunday – 5:35 pm
NY – Sunday – 8:35 pm
Lon – Monday – 1:35 am
Syd – Monday – 12:35 pm

New Moons are perfect for setting intentions, pre-paving desires and focusing our energy on what we want, but often we’re too busy to get in touch with how we really feel. As the dark moon deepens this week, we can look back over 2014, asking what came to be. What could use some tweaking? Is there any dead wood that wants pruning?

Aligning with the current Astro can help you find the answers now, before the New Moon, and turn that knowledge into powerful transformations.

Key elements in upcoming New Moon are:

1) Uranus direct – think back to March/April 2013. What was set into motion then? You have a chance to make major adjustment there now, and move forward in new ways.

2) The Uranus/Pluto square  – It’s been in orb since 2010 but coming to its final exact alignment. What challenges have you faced? What strengths resulted?

3) Saturn leaving Scorpio to enter Sagittarius – What have you been working hard towards since late 2012? The fruits are about to ripen!

4) New Moon on the 0 degree Aries Point. What is it you want to be ‘known for’? Make sure that is part of the intentions you set on this auspicious New Moon.

Remember you get to decide how your respond to everything that comes your way. Be it old family dynamics, new romantic interest, brilliant creative dream or a job/living situ that has to change, you set the stage by how you think of it.

 Sign by Sign tips for the Capricorn New Moon

AriesARIES: This New Moon is a laser focus on your career, mission, profession. It’s not enough to just get by. You want to express your capabilities out into the world. Ask what it is you represent and be that every time you step outside your door. Career Action time! Make a move.

TaurusTAURUS: Think new horizons as the possibilities for expansion present themselves in the new year. The focus for you is on new experiences  – going places you have never been before. Travel, meditate, learn, teach, wander beyond the beaten path. Expand your awareness now!

GeminiGEMINI: The New Moon activates your house of shared resources, collaboration and the desire to transformation. It helps if you let go of old ways of thinking about yourself and embracing the new. Include the art of receiving in this renaissance self. Abundance through joint endeavors.

CancerCANCER: The New Moon rises in your 7th house of relationships and the intentions you set now will pave the way for your all of 2015. Hint: Begin with yourself. That’s the partnership that counts! Be there for yourself, and shower your life with LOVE, appreciation and reverence.

LeoLEO: Time to address any health or healing areas. Everything you do in your day to day routine counts – exercise, nutrition and the thoughts you think! The key to manifesting the life of your dreams begins with the basics, with soap and water and the kitchen sink. Appreciate every little thing.

VirgoVIRGO: The focus for you is creative self-expression, your art, craft and recreation. What is it you love doing? More of that is in order! Your homework is to have the time of your life through play, creative practice, music, dance, theater, film . . . whatever lights you up. Romance doesn’t go astray either!

LibraLIBRA: This New Moon is in your house of secret feelings and it’s going to awaken all kinds of magic in your life. Eyes open. Be ready! Any and everything you do to improve the home right now improves you too! De-clutter, and spruce up the Feng Shui. Dreams and synchronicities light the way!

ScorpioSCORPIO: For you, the New Moon rises in your 3rd house of ‘mind’ and it’s your thoughts and how you direct them that are most empowered. This is where your communication skills come in to play. Use them! Focus on what you want most, speak it aloud, and watch dreams come into being.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: The New Moon in Capricorn can make it easy to get distracted with pragmatic concerns. This isn’t ‘bad’ though if you look deeper at your ‘resources’ you’ll see your true wealth is your core values. Use them. Meanwhile, sort your finances, make a new plan, and expect abundance in 2015.

CapricornCAPRICORN: This is your personal New Moon so take a moment to reflect on how your life is progressing. What have you accomplished in 2014? What goals do you want to set in 2015? Care to raise your sights? The sky truly is the limit, so start blasting through those set-points now!

AquariusAQUARIUS: The New Moon rises out of the land of dreams and the chaos of the unconscious mind. It’s about letting go and allowing for what you want as opposed to trying to force things to ‘make it happen’. The more you relax, let go of control and allow your intuition to guide you, the better. No resistance!

piscesPISCES: The Capricorn Moon lights up your house of friends and like-minded others. You are opening to new connections and also, perhaps, some friends are starting to drift away. Just go with the ebb and flow, releasing the urge to grasp and cling. 2015 brings leadership roles! Be ready!

Have a wonderful NEW MOON!
Namaste all! xxxKim

What’s in a Voice?

Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany

This post is reblogged from my Supernatural Underground Monthly offering.

With #NaNoWriMo in full swing, I’ve seen more than a few questions pop up in the social buzz about #VOICE. For example, a post yesterday questioned writing multiple characters. It had everyone talking.

The smartest answer?

Make it sound real.

This reminds me of ​Tatiana Maslany’s incredible delivery of – what is it now, twelve –  cloned versions of herself on Orphan Black? The writers give each character a different personality, back-story and voice, and Tatiana delivers in a way that feels authentic. Not forced.

And those accents!

Editor Ariel Hahn says voice is the absence of artifice. It’s what comes out when you have just yourself. She says not to worry though; it will develop on its own if you keep writing!

China Mieville

China Mieville puts it like this: Every book I write, the first thing I have to do is get into the voice, and the voice varies from book to book – that’s part of what’s interesting to me . . . Of course, who you’re writing for is part of the decision about the voice of the book . . . but the person you’re writing for is (sorry to repeat what is a cliche, but it’s true) yourself – though yourself at different times and in different moods.

So when I wrote Railsea, I was very much wanting to write a story for myself at a certain age. I tried to inhabit the voice that would excite and win over and appeal to and interest that me, rather than thinking “now to write to appeal to children”. I wouldn’t know how – but I do know how to tell younger-me a story he would like, I think and hope.It takes self-reflection for a writer to pull this off.

Les Edgerton suggests that the best way to find your voice is to write autobiographically. “Writers will never find a powerful, evocative voice until they learn to be bone-deep honest with themselves, open and vulnerable”.As the saying goes, if you’re a writer, who needs therapy?

Here are examples of voice in two different projects I’m currently working on:

Black Tuesday (w/t) – NY, 1926 Paranormal Romance

The secretaries were like birds on a hot wire, all a chatty flap. Hammond’s door was open, the man shouting on the phone.

    “What happened?” Charlotte asked the receptionist.

    “He was actually here!”

    “Who?” Charlotte knew perfectly well who. It was all she could do to keep from running after him.

    “Leon Marcottie!” the office girls said in unison.

    “Him?” Charlotte managed to shrug one shoulder. “I hear he’s a real cake eater . . .”

The Blood in the Beginning (w/t) – 2020, LA Urban Fantasy

The detective and I went way back, not in a cozy, family friendship way, hell no. He’d set me straight when I went a little wayward.

    Okay. A lot wayward . . .

    Rourke kept me out of juvie, for the most part, and though there’d been no luck finding decent foster care, he started me in the LA-MMA junior circuit, and that saved my life.

    “You want to fight, you might as well learn how not to get killed.”    

    When I showed up for my first class, he was leading it. Yeah, we went way back.

VOICE is like a fingerprint – if you listen closely, you’ll find the writer’s unique signature. Do you have a favorite voice in film, TV or novels? I’d love to hear more! Comments welcome. :)

Neptune, Redemption and the Nature of Archetypes

kimfalconer:

With Neptune empowered in the sign of Pisces, the Symbolreader offers a timely and insightful article on the and longing for unity with the divine, and redemption.
Thank you, Monika. Brilliant!

“The longing for redemption is an ancient, strange and many-headed daimon, which dwells within even the most earthbound and prosaic of souls. Sometimes eloquent and sometimes mute, this daimon aspires toward some dimly sensed union with an all-seeing, all-loving, ineffable Other, in whose encircling embrace may be found ultimate solace for the harsh limits of mortality and the frightening isolation of individuality which lie embedded somewhere, albeit unconscious, in every life. Even if we do not call the Other by any divine name, but instead direct our devotion and our yearning toward unrecognized surrogates such as humanity en masse, family, nature, art, love, or admiration for a particular person or thing. The hallmarks of the longing for redemption are, first, that it is a longing; that it is compulsive and absolute, and often collides violently with individual values; and third, that its goal is not…
