Dear Fellow Travelers,

I am thrilled to share the culmination of the last decade of work with you. I would be honored for you to join me this Equinox. Deepen Your Astrological Practice: A Psychospiritual Journey through the forty-five Planetary Combinations. Please read the information below to register and for more details.

LogoDatedCap

Come share sacred space as we invoke the mystery of the planets to deepen our relationship with the divine. To commune with the archetypes is to remember, for they already live and breathe inside of you and you inside of them. They are the alphabet of a love-language from which we are continually spoken into existence—love-letters to us from Source. By listening and responding to the divine invitation, we come into profounder relation with the archetypes, undergoing their initiatory rites and drinking from the wellspring of their wisdom.

The culmination of my last decade of work, this course takes us on a transformative journey that integrates didactic learning, artistic expression, and embodied experience. We travel together with other astrologers, practitioners, and artists whose craft and mastery helps open the multidimensionality of the archetypes. As living sacred symbols that permeate and inform all areas of life, this in-depth exploration of the meaning of each of the 45 combinations is applicable not only to your astrological practice, but to all disciplines, relationships, and experiences. A transpersonal and depth psychological lens illuminates how engaging these cosmic energies rejoins the evolution of our souls to that of the anima mundi. In this course, you will receive:

    Beginning September 23rd, the class will be livestreamed to a limited number of participants for 11 weeks on Sundays from 2:00-6:30pm ET (with a 30 minute break). There will be time for students’ questions and comments each session. The course is open to all levels.

In my experience, being human means knowing pain, loss, fear, and confusion along with joy, felt intimacy, and meaningful connection. Meaningful relationship, with ourselves and with others, is the foundation of a balanced and flourishing life. And yet, so often our lives can be filled with difficult and challenging emotions. The archetype of the Moon is the psycho-somatic part of our being – our bodies, feelings, and emotions. The Moon is the relationship we have with our mother and family, our early childhood experiences, and how we nurture ourselves and others. Whereas the archetype of Jupiter expands whatever it touches so we must first look at what is being touched in the lunar dimension of life to understand what is being amplified here. Growth often comes with growing pains, some discomfort, anxiety, and fear of the unknown as we work our edges. Moon-Jupiter teaches us that when we take care of our core needs and nourish ourselves there is an abundance of support and maternal care that blesses our lives. When we get overly caught in what is comfortable and easy we sometimes miss the larger call to grow.

Psychological splitting is one of our primary defense mechanisms, a normal and healthy function of the individual psyche that occurs in every human being. On the one hand, it offers us protection until we are strong and ready enough to encounter and integrate those parts of our self, good and bad, that at first feel foreign to the ego. On the other hand, splitting functions more deeply, transcending our individual psyches by serving collective and transpersonal purposes. Psyche is not just on the inside, but is the universal mind in which we all swim together. In this sense, psyche is fractal, and we are each a diamond whose facets catch the light of communal relation in a kaleidoscopic network of interactions. We play different roles for one another, not just due to individual projections, but as part of a larger group gestalt, a broader process of psyche coming to know itself better as each individual becomes more integrated through working their relationships.

More than just a defense mechanism, psychological splitting is a way that you hold a piece of me until I am ready to recognize it as myself, and vice versa. In our closest relationships, our friends and partners often carry traits that we have trouble accepting as our own. By being in these relationships, we can slowly drink in those seemingly foreign traits. Thus, splitting in not pathological, but a way of integrating Self at a pace that we can handle. It is a form of amnesis, or forgetting, that is to our benefit. Just as we cannot see all our past lives less we be overwhelmed by their weight and unable to engage cleanly in the present, so too are we unable to see all the parts of ourselves right away. We must gradually become that which we already are potentially. We do this by interacting with people and our environment, by slowly reclaiming those parts of our Self that we initially, often for our own good, split off from ourselves. Splitting relates to the Saturn-Pluto complex in the sky presently. We can look at the birth chart to help us to see the unique ways in which each of us is prone to splitting. By identifying and working with these personal archetypal themes, we are aided on our soul journey toward becoming our fullest selves.

Life is made of patterns and cycles. They are all around us. We find ourselves, once more, in similar situations and experiences throughout our various relationships—those moments and people we encounter in life again and again. Astrology is a map of the cycles of the planets in connection to the patterns in human life. The patterns we repeat in love can be seen in the birth charts of our lovers and partners, a karmic trail running through our key relationships for us to discover. Identifying these repeating archetypal themes gives us the chance to grow our awareness and practice new ways of facing old patterns. The way through is not to escape the repeating patterns, but to find new meaningful responses to them that are more freeing than before. What repeating patterns in love and relationship might you be working with in this life?

In the third Stream, Family Systems and Astrology, I further explore family patterns revealed in the astrological charts of whole families as a continuation from Stream 2. Over the last decade as a counseling astrologer, I have collected research from thousands of charts and looked at the data through the lens of depth psychology. I share here the variety of ways archetypal signatures may show up within our family lineage. Discovering our own family archetypal signatures can help us see clearly the karmic batons we carry forward in our own lives, both in the archetypal complexes shared and the structural poetics in which the complexes are patterned.

Welcome to Stream. This new forum is dedicated to sharing my stream of consciousness in the realms of astrology and psychology, and to exploring how we live the most meaningful lives we can with the little time we have here.

In the second Stream, Family Patterns in Astrology, I share my thoughts on transgenerational aspect patterns. Encoded in our birth charts like DNA are planetary aspects we inherited from our parents. The genetics of astrology, seen in transgenerational aspect patterns passed from one generation to the next, allow us to trace our karmic lineages and understand the purpose of the gifts and challenges received from our ancestors. Astrology permits conscious evolution of the karmic torches we bear by illuminating where we incarnate in the chain of the unfolding Great Story.

Welcome to Stream. This new forum is dedicated to sharing my stream of consciousness as a Sun-Mercury-Neptune triple conjunction in Capricorn woman. Each Stream will come in free flow form as I am moved by Spirit to speak. A movement similar to the great woman dancer, Isadora Duncan, who would wait to move her body until she felt the presence of the sacred that guided her movement.

In the first Stream, The World, I share my thoughts on birth charts and death charts. I ask us to think critically and carefully about what “the world” means and what we mean when we ask the question that is perhaps asked more than any other, “what does this mean”? I also challenge the modern apocalyptic vision that is so often proclaimed with such authority.

The image of “The World” for this Stream comes from the new Tarot deck by Paulina Cassidy.
