The Cardinal Cross

2014_Grand_Cardinal_Cross_April_22ndThis upcoming planetary picture has captured the attention of astrologers world wide.  It’s a pattern that no human,  has ever  lived through at least not with the planets currently forming this major grand cross.  For that reason, we have no historical information to guide us.  We are left thus with our education. our imagination, and our intuition as to just how this dynamic picture of planets is going to manifest.  It’s complicated and the presence of Pluto & Uranus who are locked into their ‘square-dance.x7’, makes the whole picture quite life-changing on a global scale.

Zodiac signs can be either Cardinal, Fixed, or Mutable, and each category has its own quality of expression.  The Cardinal category includes: Aries, Libra, Cancer & Capricorn.  Those of us who have a predominance of this ‘cardinal’ energy will really feel the ongoing effects of this alignment.   The rest of us will be impacted (greatly) simply by osmosis.  Cardinality is dynamic, active, and is fond of beginnings.  They like to start things in an active way.

Countries, Organizations, City/States, all have horoscopes too.  The USA is Cancer, born on the fourth of July.  If one looks at the horoscope of the USA what stands out in flashing neon is the fact that we are experiencing a return of Pluto to our natal Pluto in Capricorn.  The timing begs for deep discussions of where our country is heading in this 21st Century.  If you add the Cardinal Cross to a Pluto Return you quickly realize that we are truly living in “some interesting times” as the ancient Chinese curse so states.

Anyway, this will be some of the material we will work with on March 30 at the next Experiential Astrology & Kripalu Yoga workshop.  If you are interested in bringing a program to your location, contact Ida.

Back from Kripalu…….

Back from Kripalu…….

swami kripalu….where I do volunteer work at least three times a year.  This trip I worked as a facilitator and hatha yoga teacher.  The program was called the Inner Quest Intensive and I have been a part of this amazing ‘production’ since ’99.  Here’s a post I wrote after another such trip about 5 years ago.

The world really needs this program.  Those of us who facilitate transformation and healing for others know this.   I am completely filled with love, gratitude, and kindness once again as I continue to live and teach yoga.

and, totally excited to promote and deliver an: The Outer Quest Intensive©, an experiential journey with transformational possibilities.  Using your natal chart as a launchpad we’ll journey thru the solar system with an intention of  expanding our self-awareness and self-knowledge. Interested in knowing more, like where, when, and how?  Contact me at idafae@gmail.com.

Balsamic in the Winter……….

back to the Hill House

Have you noticed how the outside really does reflect the inside? All the time.

I’ve just returned from Kripalu Center where I was able to take on the role of musician in the Saptah ‘event’ and then facilitator and yoga leader in the IQI.

A lot happened. Nothing happened. The stillpoint that becomes present when I find my center was exquisitly healing for me personally & professionally.

And, just to remind me that the universe supports inward journeying I’ve arrived home during the balsamic phase of the moon; another opportunity to develop relationship with the more causal levels of existence.

I’ll be facilitating another yoga nidra this thursday.

The astrology is perfect.

I feel like I’m doing my part to bring peace to the planet.

I couldn’t do this work without practicing peace for myself.

May we live in peace, no matter what we’re given.

Om nama shivaya.

KYTA CONFERENCE 2007

I’m traveling into the beautiful Berkshire Mountains tomorrow heading to the Kripalu Yoga Teacher’s Conference. Over on the sidebar to the right you’ll find a link for more information.

One of the things I love most about Kripalu yoga is it’s emphasis on community and creating a more peaceful world.

I look forward to re-connecting with my teachers and my peers. After all, there’s just ONE of us here, right?

Om shanti , shanti, shantihi

Saraswati

I’ll be back next week.
