“My evenings are taken up very largely with astrology. I make horoscopic calculations in order to find a clue to the core of psychological truth. Some remarkable things have turned up which will certainly appear incredible to you.”

~Carl Jung in a letter to Sigmund Freud (June 12, 1911)

 

Astrological Counseling

I offer astrological counseling for psycho-spiritual exploration, understanding, and transformation. Astrology utilized in this way can be a missing key for deep inner work and can shed light on the path towards greater harmony with the natural rhythms and cycles of one’s life journey. My approach to astrology is to share the potentials and opportunities I see while exploring how the symbols and archetypes are manifesting uniquely for each individual. Astrology is a wonderful tool for self-knowledge and a help in times of challenge or transition. It can facilitate tremendous insight and peace, as well as provide timelines for certain archetypal or energetic influences reflected in our lives and inner states of being. Consultations available for birth chart exploration, current influences, relationship dynamics, and timing for important events.

The Spiritual Implications of the Astrological Birthchart

 

 

Upcoming workshop with Randy Wasserstrom

 

At the heart of the astrological birthchart is spiritual karma and from this karma comes a perfect compassionate design for each one of us. Our mission is to feel the perfection of the design and to guide our lives by it. In this workshop, “The Spiritual Implications of the Astrological Birthchart”, we will discuss how to interpret planets, signs, houses and the lunar nodes from a spiritual perspective while comparing this perspective to the psychological model. Participants will have the opportunity to look at their own charts (voluntary) “piece by piece” from this perspective. This workshop is for all astrology students — beginning to advanced.

 

Randy Wasserstrom, MSW, a professional astrologer from Cary, NC will be the workshop leader. He has 22 years of experience as an astrologer, has taught many classes in beginning to advanced astrology, and started the Network of Triangle Astrologers. 

 

The fee is $45.00. For further information and/or pre-registration, call Randy at 919-467-4043 or email randwass@nc.rr.com

 

When: January 28, 2012 from 1-4pm 

Where: A Far Away Place —16 Battery Park Ave. Asheville, NC 28801

All planets are direct, but Mars ♂ is slowing down...

 

 

Although all planets are direct now, helping us to move forward without obstruction, Mars ♂ is traveling slower than usual in preparation to stop and turn around for his retrograde cycle (1/23-4/13). So the drive forward may not be going as quickly as hoped... Or the current phase could be welcomed as a time for deepening exploration and clarity. Actions taken from mid Nov 2011 (when Mars entered its shadow) thru mid Apr 2012 (when Mars goes direct again) may be reviewed and analyzed in the coming months as Mars retraces his steps backwards and then forwards again. Mars is in Virgo ♍ during this process, supporting us to assert ourselves methodically and conscientiously.

Sun conjunct Pluto

 

 

The Sun is conjunct Pluto tonight (2:41am EST on 12/29 at 7º Capricorn ♑). If it’s lighting up your chart, this aspect can correspond with powerful, compelling emotions, and primal fears or wounds coming up to the surface. Pluto has a unique way of digging through the unconscious and bringing up that which is ready to be seen, loved, and healed.

Jupiter goes direct (all planets direct)

 

 

On Christmas Day, expansive and benevolent Jupiter ♃ goes direct (at 5:09pm EST, after about four months of being retrograde), beginning a rare few weeks where there are no planets retrograde. This opens a window in time where there is little or no resistance to moving forward with projects, plans, hopes, and dreams.

New Moon in Capricorn ♑

 

 

On Christmas Eve there is a New Moon in Capricorn ♑ (at 1:06p EST). The New Moon is the phase of the cycle when a seed is sown. And during this time of year, around the Winter Solstice, it is the deepest, darkest, and most fertile time within. One might find oneself designing new aspirations and visualizing new beginnings.

Venus is in Aquarius ♒

 

 

Venus is in Aquarius ♒ from Dec 20-Jan 13. The modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus ♅. Uranus rules flashes of intuition that come with sudden clarity. Venus rules all things to do with love, relationships, beauty, and art — so the intuitions that come may be especially connected with these Venus areas… One way to discern whether it is a well-founded intuition is if it feels like it came from outside of your ordinary mind and if you have a sense of knowing that accompanies it (despite any resistance to it such as fear).

The Winter Solstice

 

 

Dec 21-22 is the Winter Solstice, as the Sun shifts from buoyant, arrows flying Sagittarius ♐, to grounded, efficient Capricorn ♑. The Sagittarius archetype persistently aims for high goals. This persistence develops into the Capricorn archetype, where one brings the process down to earth and climbs the mountain one step at a time.“While each sign seems to be an antidote to its immediate predecessor in the zodiac, each one also comes equipped with the capability to take the gift of the preceding sign to the next level” (Kimberly Maxwell & Jim Schultz). Capricorn “gives stability and substance to the metaphysical, religious or social enthusiasm of Sagittarius… Capricorn puts to practical use what Sagittarius has released” (Dane Rudhyar).

Mercury ☿ goes direct tonight

 

 

Mercury goes direct tonight at 8:43p EST. While Mercury is changing directions (apparently to us from our perspective on Earth), his trickster ways can be even more active. In response to miscommunications, misunderstandings, delays, or mistakes — I am reminding myself things like: the same word can mean very different things to different people, and there is no real rush, everything in its perfect time, etc. Typically, Mercury retrograde issues can be remedied with a little extra care. And after today, communications, purchases, contracts, and moving forward in general will most likely have less resistance and more momentum.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini ♊

 

 

There was a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse this morning, just hours after Uranus turned direct (that’s a lot of intensity in a short period of time). If you have any planets or points in your birth chart around 18º Gemini ♊ or Sagittarius ♐, this eclipse is especially significant for you. Full Moons represent the culmination of the lunar month, increased emotional sensitivity, but also greater clarity. Eclipses increase the magnitude of all of this in a quantum way. Eclipses can also “clip” something out of one’s life, that which is stagnant and in need of transformation.

Uranus ♅ turns direct

 

 

Early on Dec 10, Uranus ♅, the planet of lightning bolt change, revolution, and freedom, turns direct after five months of being retrograde. Generally, when an outer planet is retrograde, its influence is experienced more on the internal level. When it stations (the time period when it slows down and appears to change direction), its influence is intensified and dramatic. Once it turns direct, outward manifestation becomes more apparent. Uranus is turning direct at the very beginning of Aries ♈, the part of the zodiac that epitomizes abundant raw energy and fresh new beginnings. This is a potent shift.
