2015 Year of Gathering

Intro – My story / pop Astrology / Astrology for Healing/Growth 

I found Astrology to be a guiding light at a time in my life when many things were topsy turvy. Astrology helped me recognise that I was  in the midst of my first Saturn Return (28 to 30 years of age) AND there was light at the end of the tunnel PLUS a purpose for the ‘crazy’ situations I found myself in.

I wanted a deeper understanding of the mysteries of life and my role in the whole picture – Astrology seemed to help bring clarity and common sense into the various struggles I found myself in. Although the ‘pop’ Astrology of magazines and newspapers were often a bit of fun – I sensed there was much more to this ancient craft/wisdom/language. Pop Astrology does have its basis in the positions & relationships of the planets to each other AND to the general energy of our Sun Sign – MOST people know what their Sun Sign is (the part of the Zodiac the Sun was in on the day we were born). YET if we want to work more constructively with ASTROLOGY we need to have a more refined tool = the Birth Chart. Read the rest of this entry »

April 2014 Guidance in the Stars

April 2014 Guidance in the Stars

As April 2014 approaches – this can be an excellent time to prepare ourselves for the impact of all the challenging energies ahead. Astrological information abounds about just what we can look forward to …I will be using links to give you speedy access to the best data available at this time of writing BUT am sure lots of other wonderful guidance will be available in the coming weeks.

Earlier this year I noticed a rare Astrological Event destined to happen on 29.4.14 called Annular Eclipse Anon-C = a rare Annular eclipse where the central line does not touch the Earths surface. Watch out for that one!

Earlier in April – 15.4.14 we have a Total Lunar Eclipse which will be experienced mostly across North & South America Here is one link on this energy & others. And another link where the information covers a lot of 2014 and seems most helpful.

Other suggested sights (LINKS 1,2 & 3) have been recommended to my current Astrology Students as being places to gain more insight into the coming events. I encourage you to get into a bit of personal research – NOW could be the perfect time to follow-up on an interest in some personal healing therapy?

Eclipse astrology Charts 14.11.12 & 29.4.14
Eclipse Links Visible

Flipping through my ephemeris this week I discovered a rare Eclipse called ‘A non C’ – it was a term that I had never heard mentioned before and led me on a journey of research and discovery…. this is what I found…

In Life & Astrology amongst the ‘cycles within cycles’ lots of exciting events occur. When it comes to the Eclipse Cycle (often called the Saros Cycle), it has been found that an Eclipse will return to the same sign and house every 18years and the opposite sign and house every 9years. Therefore when we are seeking to understand the significances of an Eclipse in our own Life – look back 18 years or 9 years and check for a link to current circumstances.

 Eclipses are linked to the position North and South Nodes which are known by Astrologers to be symbolic of our Soul’s Destiny – the journey from the ‘comfortable’ & familiar past towards the often unknown future.  It is wise to consult a Professional Astrologer if you wish to discover the relevance of any planetary events to your own Life Path/Birth Chart. There is also LOTS of links between Religion & Eclipses.

This writing is about two upcoming Eclipses important in Australia. The first is a Total Solar Eclipse (a New Moon – Sun conjunct Moon, when the Moon will pass between the Earth & Sun causing darkness) on this Wednesday 14.11.12 at 8.10am- visible in North Queensland Australia and parts of the Pacific. The second is the rare ‘A non C’ event on Tuesday 29.4.14 at 4.14pm (a New Moon – Sun conjunct Moon; Annular, central line does not touch Earth surface) also visible in a wide area of Australia. When investigating these two events I found some intriguing links between the two. Read the rest of this entry »

A Grand 40day Experience

A chance to raise your vibration with Love

Here we are … in the 2nd quarter of what has been described as a “40day grand experience 15th July to 22 August 2012” …a time to “root out old emotional trash that no longer serves us” and to “Raise your vibration with love“.

What exactly is this ‘grand experience’ all about? As an Astrologer, I decided to investigate.

What I found is … YES we are definitely in a VERY dynamic period. A time of cycles within cycles synchronised amongst the many greater cycles of Life forever unfolding.

…15 July to 22 August is a retrograde period for the planet Mercury. It began at 12 degree Leo and will regress through the sign of Leo till 8.8.12 – where at 1 degree Leo, Mercury then goes direct. On August 22 Mercury will again be at 12 degree Leo, completing the cycle. During this time July 29th is another significant date – when the Sun and Mercury are conjunct (6degree Leo) within the retro cycle.

What many non Astrologers may not realise is …that the true Mercury Retrograde Cycle began way back on 28th May 2012 when the Sun and Mercury (then a direct motion through the zodiac) were conjunct at 7 degree Gemini (the first sign ruled by Mercury). The next Sun/Mercury conjunction happens on 10th September 2012 at 17 degree Virgo (the 2nd sign ruled by Mercury). We average at least 3 Mercury Retrograde cycles each year.

What it means to you and me

 …Astrologically, the planet Mercury represents – my attitude – my thinking – my communication – my voice – my memory – my beliefs = learned behaviour helpful/or hindrance; useful/or out-dated; love/or fear = who’s’ voice are you repeating? = are you repeating someone else’s thought patterns? – your name/how you are Read the rest of this entry »

Over the years I have been asked many times to facilitate Astrology Classes, and although I often teach some of the basics in a Natal Chart Reading; it has never been the ‘right time’ to do a structured class. Now is the right time.

My love of this wonderful language of symbols began in the mid 1980s in this lifetime (I am sure I have lived other lifetimes where I have also been an Astrologer). This connection has continued to grow and blossom with structured studies, working with clients, research, reading books and articles. Working with Astrology on a daily basis is a bit like having a referdex (street directory) to a city – you have an idea of what type of environment (transits) you are travelling in; and the type of detours you are most prone to enjoy. Yet the choice is totally yours as to what ‘road’ (energy) you choose to utilise at any given time. Read the rest of this entry »

 

Ancient peoples would connect to the Moon more strongly when it was full – they could easily observe the build-up towards the full and the waning into nothing-ness.  Today, with the help of the telescope we are more informed. We tend to follow the new Moon as it builds to full & returns back to reconnect with (conjunct) the Sun as a full cycle. We see this 28/29 day passage through each sign of the Zodiac (Moon spends approx 2 ½ days in each sign) as a full cycle.

 But what if we took the full Moon as a beginning point and followed the cycle through the ‘nothing-ness’ and back to full? The full Moon is the point at which the Moon is exactly opposite the Sun; perhaps this alternate method of beginning a Moon cycle would contribute more successfully in bringing our awareness back to a more holistic life focus? Moon symbolises emotion and the feeling nature, while Sun is about ego and enterprise.

Tomorrow (at 9.10pm Eastern Australian time) we will be experiencing a full Moon at 26degrees Scorpio. This will usually have the most influence on people with any Inner Planet (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) at 26 degrees of any Fixed Sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius). Depending on the Planet involved, any other Transits and the Houses too; some may experience the event as a profound shift, a menacing nuisance, or a minor hiccup. A Professional Astrologer is best consulted when seeking to take advantage of each significant event. Read the rest of this entry »

yaninayoga recently researched the ancient practice of reading hands . . . . .  This activity  can be traced back to 384BC, with links to Aristotle and Greek Gods. Many of us are aware of the signifigance of hands found in rock paintings of Aboriginal Australians and other early cultures. While archaeological discoveries accross the planet have found hands made of stone, wood and ivory by ancient civilizations.

The Catholic Church was responsible for forcing the Art of Palmistry to go underground. They branded the practice as ‘linked with the devil’ and murdered anyone who was found engaged in or interested in Hand Reading.

Many many books have played major roles in my life at different times. Books are my friends in times of struggle, a comfort when lost or confused, and a consistant method of growth and learning for me. I recently wrote two Book Reviews as a Guest Writer for SpiritualBookReviews.com

'The most important book I have'

'The most important book I have'

A Course in Miracles (ACM) is by far the most important book I currently have.

It contains 3 Books in 1 –
Text
Workbook
Manual

The Book Review shares some excerpts chosen at random from each section of ACM and is designed to give an impression of the powerful concepts covered in this publication.

A link to the website of the Thetford Foundation (who are the Australian  custodians of ACM) is also given for easy access to aquiring a copy.

'Useful tool for everyday Life'

'Useful tool for everyday Life'

 

The other Book Review is

for a publication called

 The Oracle Within.

Within the pages of this useful book lies the guidance and wisdom of many respected Teachers, Authors and Thinkers.

Designed to be used in times of confusion and hopelessness, this book can help bring clarity and purpose back to the reader.

Each of these publications have been huge favourites of mine for many years.
I have gifted copies to both family and friends, and enjoy sharing their unique qualities with all readers.
