2015 Year of Gathering

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 »

My first encounter with Amma happened Saturday 17th April 2004. At the time I described it in my diary like this …” at 1.02am after lining up on my knees & waiting at least 4hours (got to venue at 6pm aprox & waited ages to get into hall – then heard a taped speech by Amma on the need for the feminine to reclaim her power as healer & nurturer of all – men, children & planet as her-self).

As I approached Amma I noticed so many others looking adoringly at her as if drugged or ‘high’. . . Then I knelt before her and she clasped my head & drew me to her left breast – it felt so soft. I breathed & relaxed a bit when I realised I was holding back a bit. I felt a lightness like I was resting into a soft cloud; Read the rest of this entry »

I release you & set you free ~ my love has no agenda of entrapment, only recognition of the wisdom & beauty within us all

I release you & set you free ~ my love has no agenda of entrapment, only recognition of the wisdom & beauty within us all

Our ego mind loves to perpetuate its most familiar state. If used to struggle (often first experienced at birth) & disappointment, or drama & conflict it will seek to continue this familiar pattern throughtout our lives; even in the most ideal loving  relationships.  ~~**Through awareness we CAN break this pattern**~~

  Serial monogamy and the inability to be faithful (inability to make a commitment & honour it) are often symptoms of beliefs based on insecurity and fear. It is said that we first need to know & trust ourselves before being able to make a genuine commitment to another. Take time to be with yourself ~ get to know the unique multi-facetted you!

Rebuilding a healthy ego mind state is like planting & tending a garden = regular maintenance will bring best results.

We need to keep ‘weeding out’ the destructive thoughts that bring NEGATIVE results or cause pain and replace them with THE TRUTH/ ‘feel good’/happy thoughts that bring connection, safety, harmony, health & wealth.

TRUST yourself ~TRUST the process of Life ~TRUST we are always in the right place involved in the right activity~ KNOW TRUST & AFFIRM= I AM innocent ~ no need to suffer  … I AM innocent ~ I deserve Love & Joy & safety now I AM innocent ~ No matter what! … I AM innocent ~ I can let go of ALL pain/dis-ease NOW … I AM innocent ~ therefore I trust myself – I trust others to Love & nurture me without debt … I AM innocent ~ I can live as long as I choose in health & wealth NOW

I AM innocent ~ success is natural = fun is natural = Life is natural … I AM innocent ~ I am at peace – I can relax now … I AM innocent ~ I now trust my Inner Wisdom … I AM innocent ~ therefore my body is a safe & pleasurable place for me… I AM innocent ~ therefore it is EASY for me to forgive – I forgive myself & others easliy & effortlessly  … I AM innocent ~ therefore I know I AM totally Good Enough, Worthy & Wanted ~ Now & Always

U R special, unique, amazing, talented, precious, magnificient, innocent, creative …….& safe ~ just like EVERYBODY ELSE

Welcome back my Love ~ your aliveness is a Gift to the World … I cherish you in my Life!

Unfortunately for many of us, this wasn’t our initial experience – our existence was unplanned or perhaps unwanted by our parents (or that is the impression our ego mind holds). This belief/thought was upheld by a traumatic birth and re-enforced by parental disapproval, difficult school & social experiences … now followed by recurring issues in adult relationships.

Issues of sexual promiscuity, emotional aloofness or ‘overly clingy’ behaviour have been traced to self-loathing & criticism that spills out to others around us and into the wider world. We find ourselves addicted to rejection, or rejecting anyone who genuinely tries to love us. Did you know – You are the Ultimate Healer in your Life (just as I am in mine) and we each have many choices for correcting the lies (based on events at birth & in early childhood) that limit our freedom and bliss.

I write this for you (U know who U R) ...and for me ...and for everyone (we R all living with questions & doubts about ourselves our loves & lovers)

Before I go into this 4 Part Series (Pt1: Love = Dirty Word? Pt2: You R Wanted; Pt3: You R Safe & Accepted; Pt4: You R Special) I would like to ‘set the scene’ by reviewing the basic psychological premise behind my writings. I am writing this with humility as an offering of my Truth at this time based on over 20years of personal growth/study/Professional Practice. We are no good to ourselves or each other (let alone a new partner) till we address the hidden motivations that propel us from one lover to the next and the next (serial monogamy).

It is common knowledge that we all have an ego = ego mind is basically the sum total of all our memories/experiences/cultural conditioning etc. Our ego mind is a useful & necessary part of Self. It contains our conscious survival instinct with protective qualities; influences our emotional states and is VERY useful for navigating our way through Life + having FUN.

Ultimately, many of us fail to realise that we also have choice about how to manage this powerful ego Self. And that we also have other facets to ourselves = the deeper mind – often called Inner Intelligence/Higher Self/Spiritual Wisdom. This aspect of Self is often (mostly) unconscious, yet available through various practices such as CCBs/Rebirthing , meditation, or our Dreams (the dream world can be a mix of ego & higher self guidance).

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 »

Steps to Fitness

 

 

 

 Now that the 28 days in February 2011 are fading into the past, it is helpful to realise that we can utilise the 28 day Moon Cycles (mentioned in Part 2) to continue on our path to improved fitness and well-being.

At this point, it may be useful to ask ourselves – what does fitness mean to me?

For each of us it will often mean very different things. For some, it maybe Read the rest of this entry »
