No one on Earth is going to miss this obvious change in our global experience. Planetary Change Agent Uranus digs into earthy Taurus for seven years, rocking and rolling, earth-quaking and shaking up our values and experience in the material world. Back to the basics. We are called to more deeply embody impulses from higher mind octaves, while strong plasma waves from the galactic center charge up Earth's magnetosphere. Is Gaia evolving? Now! Are we? How? Where is your Uranus? As we consider themes relevant to this new cycle, we look at how this cycle may impact the revolutionary, consciousness-awakening agenda of your particular Uranus mini-generation. We'll also take a quick look at the impact of the Uranian sign change through the houses, for more useful information relevant to you.
Venus is taking us on a deep dive below the surface of our lives, retrograde in Scorpio. Venus realigns with the Sun on October 26th, half-way through its retrograde period. Most of us are familiar with Mercury retrograde. What is the invitation from Venus? Every eight years we experience this particular Venus retrograde. The essential theme is the same each time, but the storyline changes. We will track this particular storyline that is unfolding through mid-December, involving earth-shaking Uranus in Taurus and the Nodes of the Moon, as well as certain powerful stars and planets: Sedna, Spica, Algol, Black Moon Lilith. Be inspired by transformative goddess archetypes and themes resonant with the Scorpio flavor, especially Eros. Our deepest desires are stirred. We'll look back on what we have experienced so far and ahead to the significant shift of tone in November, when Venus returns to her own sign, Libra, and turns forward, accompanied by significant planet sign changes, as we head toward the Solstice and New Year. Take note: This retrograde cycle affects specific groups of people born at Scorpio-rich moments— with Uranus, Neptune, Pluto & Chiron in Scorpio— great fodder for further discussion, as many of you have one of these positions.

This is a time to remember Mermaids (and the FishMan) that sing to ancient ancient memory so deep. Dive in and meet several mermaids that are surfacing in our cosmic consciousness now. Naturally, sea people live in all the water signs, as you know if you are Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces. We'll also visit specific mer people connected to various celestial bodies. Have you heard of sparkling Salacia, sea sprite Namaka, shapeshifting Chariklo or remote Sedna? You might find they are personally meaningful to you. I'll include basic tables to locate them in your chart. This is intended as an inspirational, mythic exploration, lightly suggestive on astrological interpretation. I encourage you to find your own flow of storyline. Do you know the real story of The Little Mermaid?
The level of change is intensifying. The stakes are high. It's time to look toward the New Year to consult the stars and preview upcoming planetary sign changes. What are the highlights, the shifting tones and trends of 2018—and beyond? How does all this impact the world situation, different generational groups and you, personally? The choreography of the planets defines themes and timing of cycles larger and smaller that effect our home planet and our lives. Let's consider the possibilities (con=with, sider= stars), and meet some newly emerging planetary gods and goddesses that offer new dimensions of experience.
On the eve of a Full Moon eclipse, we consider the wonder of these celestial events, like the flick of a celestial light switch. We look ahead to the dramatic total solar eclipse on August 21. Visible only across the USA, this rare moment is being called The Great American Eclipse, though its effect reverberates through the whole planet. Also, the impact of the eclipse is quite profound in the birth chart of the U.S. President. How important is it to you? Clearly, if you a Leo or Aquarius. Those born 1937-1962 are particularly called in as a generation. This Leo eclipse is aligned with fiery red Mars and the star Regulus, the Heart of Leo the Lion, empowering a shift from the masculine to feminine leadership and values. Mythically, the mysterious Sphinx and the blood-thirsty Lion Goddess are called forth. Let's explore the themes and potentials of this eclipse season with its ripple effects into 2018-19, as we prepare to follow our hearts through the transformational dark portal.
Venus has invited each of us in to our own SECRET GARDEN, encouraging us to deepen our emotional intelligence and our capacity for joy and delight. In this series we will gather in a shared garden, for five sessions, to follow the current cycle of Venus retrograde through its completion on May I8. I will review and amplify the material presented in the HONEY in the HEART webinar, sharing insights from my continuing research, along with resonant artistic images. [If you haven't viewed HONEY IN THE HEART, you are welcome to do so, however it is NOT a requirement.] In this small circle and extended meeting time, there will be ample opportunity for addressing personal charts. Each of you will learn more about : *Your Venus at birth: its sign, its house, its phase (morning or evening star, etc); * Positions of your repeating 8-year Venus pentangle pointst * Your progressed Venus—has it turned direction, changed sign or house since you were born? We will follow the unfolding schedule of this particular Venus cycle, with its power days, new and full Moons, planetary interactions (including a Mercury retrograde). I am excited to explore the richness of Venus with you, as we follow her trail of heart and learn from each other in our shared garden of Venus. PLEASE MESSAGE YOUR BIRTH INFORMATION TO ME WHEN YOU REGISTER.

THIS IS A REPEAT OF MY WEBINAR ON MARCH 2. There are many mythic stories of the goddess descending to the Underworld. What happens there? These stories are based on the movement of the Love planet Venus through the sky. The cycle of Venus is highly aesthetic. Every 8 years, Earth's sister planet goes retrograde 5 times, drawing a 5-pointed star around the zodiac. She continually revisits the same 5 places in our charts for re-evaluation and enrichment. This particular cycle, starting on March 4 in the fiery sign of Aries, invites us into a personal process of emotional alchemy for greater authenticity, joy and sweetness in our lives. Taking time to relish the love honey in our hearts will enhance all relationships. I invite you to join us to prepare for your journey! Rich visual imagery will help us explore the meaning of Venus and its retrograde cycle astronomically, mythically, and psycho-spiritually. I will give an overview of those 5 places (signs) in which the retrogrades repeat. A final focus will be on this particular (Aries-Pisces) cycle: the storyline, power dates, related planetary interactions and suggestions for enhancing your experience. If you know your chart and can find the signs in it, you will be able to find the 5 Venus retrogrades in your chart. Use can use the attached tables of 90 years of Venus retrograde cycles. Follow up webinars will become available for your continued learning.

Ancient, yet never more popular, Lilith evokes the primordial, secreted feminine. Trailing smoky scandal and an ambiguous reputation as seductive witch or vampire queen, the first wife of Adam and the Serpent in Eden who gave Eve the apple, whispering, "There are things you need to know, sweetheart." For centuries, she has continued to excite artists and our collective imagination with her mystery. Is she angel or devil? We meet this primordial goddess through myth, the arts, cultural icons, the world of Faerie, the Black Madonna, the Tibetan sky dancer and astrology.
Our basic sense of identity is shaped by our very earliest years. This is our Moon, or family self. As we open to a deeper, heart-centered experience of ourselves, self-awareness blossoms from the inside out with a unique personal beauty, our Venus self. This leads toward a spiritual light that gives us a sense of being connected to something larger than ourselves, infusing our lives with grace and brilliance, wholeness and meaning. This is what I call the Lilith self. We each have a unique expression of these three aspects of Feminine Being that plays out in our lives and relationships. As we learn to cherish and cultivate these aspects in ourselves, we are creatively charged by the aliveness of the life force moving through us. We shine with our own particular quality of personal brilliance.
