No Feng Shui in Paris?

Neptune - Lourve

Neptune @ The Lourve

Just as Neptune entered my ninth house,  I received a delightful invitation to join my daughter and her family in Paris!  It was so unexpected…an incredible gift,…how could I say no? On my own visiting Paris was very unlikely. Over the next few months the itinerary for the trip came together and before I knew it I was buckled into my economy class seat and racing down the runway to head EAST.  ( a rare occurance for me since I live at the edge of the east coast to begin with.

In preparation for this unexpected journey happening at a significant time, astrologically speaking,  I immediately consulted my astrocartography map.  Lo and behold, I had absolutely no lines of any sort going thru Paris, any which way.  Zero.  Hrmphf.   What could this mean?  Well, obviously there’s no karma for me there, which is kindof nice actually.  It gives me a freedom explore a new place without any karmic/dharmic residue confusing my experience.

Not so for the other members of my trip, and that’s the way it goes.

Neptune is an incredibly non-verbal energy that requires some study and experience to rightly interpret it for oneself, as it is the king of denial and illusion, and most likely for others.  However, if you are actively practicing a spiritual program with a disciplined, consistent approach, you will indeed gleam much information from Neptune.    Visit this post for keywords on Neptune.     more later.

Woke up to the news of the large-scale earthquaking in Chile.  No doubt there will be many, more events to come right up until April 22 (at the very least). as the alignment of the planets reminds us just who is Boss.  Now, sit for a few moments  and watch where your mind goes after reading that.  Then, take a long, slow, deep breath.

Chant Om.

(Go to a yoga class and ask the teacher, “why om?”)

If I could sum up everything I’ve learned over the past few decades and reduce it down to  2 words, today those words would be:

 Practice Kindness.

…more later.  New Class starts today, 4:30pm.  We’re gonna talk about Om.

 

turning back the clock…..

fearnotI recently attended Gary Christian’s weekend workshop with the Astrological Society of Princeton   I have a long history with this group and it was great to re-connect with other astrologers.  Gary spoke as Gary speaks, I’ve heard him before, he is brilliant, and sometimes I understand him, and sometimes I don’t, and yesterday it all worked for me just fine!  I am re-inspired to look at some old techniques, again, but for now in a new way.

Astrology continues to be the most reliable clock/map I’ve found.  Divine guidance, as well as practical solutions are always available in the language of the cosmos.  Astrology is real, it has been proven;  it’s the astrologers that provoke our culture’s disrespect for the science/art.   I agree with Gary on that point.   Regardless, it was a wonderful feast for my hungry intellect and I am excited to feel my left brain wake up.

Anyway, ’tis true, from yet another source, that we are in-deed in-store for very, very, very, big change.

That said, it’s time to prepare for this weeks yoga classes.   Jai bhagwan.

March 20 – INTERNATIONAL ASTROLOGY DAY    

Radical Change & Transformation..the schedule

Radical Change & Transformation..the schedule

clockandhourglass.jpgWhew. Well, it’s moved on now and no longer in the exact degree of eleven. Those of us who are sensitive to Pluto/Uranus can feel a slight sigh of relief.

During the mid-60’s Uranus and Pluto were about to merge, conjoin and initiate a cycle of Radical Change & Transformation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                The last conjunction was in 1850 in Aries. But that was before we even knew that Pluto existed.  The 1960’s conjunction occurred in middle degrees of Virgo, and other things needed to change and transform. The cycle lasts approximately 138 years and the next conjunction is: Apr.24, 2104 in early Taurus which will display a different theme of Radical Change & Transformation.

One way to think about conjunctions is that they mark the beginnings of a cycle, and cycles begin ‘in the dark’. (ie. the new moon cannot be seen) The ‘dark’ symbolizes the state of being unconscious and can sometimes express itself with spontaneous and impulsive actions. But, not always. The events of the 60’s were just the ‘seedform’ of what will ultimately be seen in 2045 at the full phase of the current cycle.

Today, 2012-2015, the cycle reaches its 90 degree/first quarter aspect, a square. This is the “crisis-in-consciousness” point. I refer you to Buz Myers, Dane Rudyhar, Alexander Ruperti, Barbara Hand Clow. They were (and are still) some of my favorite teachers. Their writings and teachings on ‘the nature of a cycle’ are brilliant and resonate still today.

In 2221, Uranus and Pluto will be conjunct again…starting another new variation of Radical Change & Transformation. And again, in 2357. Radical Change & Transformation. You can mark your calendars. It’s that certain.

On May 24, 2013 Uranus and Pluto squared each other for the first of seven squares occurring between 2012-2015. At the very least, expect major events & global headlines.

Here are the dates for the other squares:

• June 24 2012

• September 19 2012

• November 1, 2013

• April 21, 2014

• December 15, 2014

• March 17, 2015

The current incarnation of astrologers are watching and documenting, and sharing what they see.  And so am I. There’s much to learn.

Anything that involves Uranus and Pluto, involves me, personally.All the time. And, that fact has manifested in the timing of significant events in my life. Uranus and Pluto create incredible havoc when they’re together for everyone, and some of us get walloped personally, at the same time. We may become agents of Radical Change & Transformation.  It’s hard to know how to prioritize things sometimes.

Anyway, this month in our ongoing series of Experiential Astrology & Yoga workshops, we’ll be working this current transit of Uranus & Pluto to decipher where in our lives is Radical Change & Transformation.

Prescription.  Practice More Yoga.  Meditate, Often.

Om Shanti, May All Beings Live in Peace.
