Astrology in my world

Astrology at the Expo

Twice a year I do readings at our local Body Mind Spirit Expo in Raleigh.  Because these are mini-readings they are perfectly suited to people who are trying out different consultants and different modalities, and while I have many repeat clients I also have quite a few newbies who have never had an astrology reading.

Although I’ve been doing readings for many years, it’s still so exciting to read a chart for someone who is completely new to the art of REAL astrology.  Probably they already know their Sun signs, but when the door to the other planetary configurations opens and they see their psychological and emotional patterns revealed in a way that gives them greater understanding and acceptance, a light goes off that is really fun to see.

There is a general feeling of euphoria at this year’s February expo – a sense of greater optimism and readiness for change.  Over the past few years with the planetary dramas that we have seen unfolding, those changes have been somewhat wrenching and created real chaos in people’s lives.  A theme in yesterday’s readings was choice: that having been deconstructed we are now being given options for reconstructing our lives in new ways.

More readings today – if you’re in the Raleigh area come and see me at the show.

Eulogy for my mother, one year late

Rosalie2When my mother died on December 19 of last year (2012) I had very little to say about her.  I wrote a post right after her death but it was more about me and my relationship with her.  I was exhausted from her illness and the challenges that surrounded it, and could find very little that was positive to say.

When we started cleaning out her house I found boxes of old photographs and started to piece together a picture of my mother that changed the way I felt about her.  She was an extremely complex individual and difficult to get along with, with a lifetime of depression.  But she was also funny and charming and her life could have turned out very differently if she had made different choices.  Over the past year I’ve had two dreams in which I saw her without the burdens of her depression and anger and despair: as a childlike and innocent soul who is hopeful and pleased by the smallest of things.  My own rage at her dysfunction has fallen away and I can now write a proper euology.

grandparentsMy mother was born Rosalie Bernstein on June 25, 1927 (for you astrologers, I rectified her birth time to 1 am, Bronx NY).  Her parents had come from Europe to escape persecution: her mother from Poland and her father from Russia.  The legend was that they met on the boat, but I don’t know if that was really true.  In any case, within a few years they had moved to Pennsylvania where they settled in Altoona.

Sunday Saturn inspiration: “Routine is freedom from time”

10866890_s

“Routine is not a prison, but the way to freedom from time.  The apparently measured time has immeasurable space within it, and in this it resembles music.”

― 

I’m afraid I have still been a bit in the Underworld after a very trying twelve months, but a bit more rest and rejuvenation and I will be back in full swing.  The Planetary Illuminations report had to go on hiatus in October but will be back in November.

Saturn is preparing to square my Moon, and as the Prince of Solitude and Structure (Saturn) applies more and more pressure to my emotions and security issues (Moon) I decided it was a good time for some Visioncrafting of my own.  As I made my lists of the things I want to bring into my life in the seven categories of human experience the thing that kept emerging was scheduling time and honoring a routine for the things that bring richness to my inner self: yoga, meditation, walks in the woods…

As a busy business person I am no stranger to calendars and schedules, but when it comes to enriching my inner life I tend to resist conforming my inner world into the rigid world of time.  Saturn sits right on my Sun and is always reminding me, as he so often does, that time is passing quickly.  So in the spiritual side of my life I often long for the space and freedom of spontaneity and the absence of regulation.

I took a break during my Visioncrafting to look for today’s inspiration post, and the first thing to catch my eye was this quote from May Sarton.  Suddenly my […]

Catching up and letting go – another personal story of Mercury retrograde

They say that bloggers should never apologize for a lack of posts, but some of you have been with me for years and the past few months is the first time I have ever gone more than a few days without posting.  It turns out that losing your mother is harder than I thought, and when you combine that with a resurgent real estate market (in my other life I own a small real estate company), there has literally been no time to breathe.

All of this really combined to create an incredibly challenging Mercury retrograde period for me.  Usually I sail through with a laugh – “oh yes, Mercury is retrograde.  Of course these things are happening!”  Mercury has been in Pisces, and I had anticipated that the Pisces retrograde would be less challenging because Pisces tends to go with the flow and find ways to swim around obstacles.  Perhaps it’s just because my fingers are in so many pies right now – fixing up my mother’s house, working my real estate business, trying to take care of a limited number of astrology clients – over the past few weeks I have felt I was swimming through a morass of twisting tides that lead nowhere in particular but have kept me from making progress.

Whenever there is an experience like this, where confusion seems to reign, you can nearly always look to Neptune.  Neptune purposefully casts a cloud over your life and makes it difficult to see.  The purpose of this cloud is to encourage one to look within to a more transcendent experience of life and an awakening to a consciousness that supersedes the day to day world.  My progressed […]

Love song for the Solstice and a personal update

20121223-074412.jpg

Photo by Pierre LeClerc I have been AWOL from this blog for awhile, largely due to the illness of my mother who died this past Monday. With my Moon (emotion, mother, needs) conjunct Pluto (destruction and regeneration) it’s not surprising that she and I had a complex relationship. I hated her intensely, yet during her illness I found I loved her with a ferocity that shocked me.

After her husband died in 2000 she decided to move to North Carolina. Tis was bizarre because she and I were hardly in contact for about 30 years. I feel very blessed that over the past 11-1/2 years she and I were able to heal so much of the pain and reactivity that had marked our relationship. It took a great deal of effort on both of our parts but she worked hard to make changes and I worked hard to let go of resentment and anger.

I have reported in these pages that over the past few months the Uranus/Pluto square has been aspecting my natal Chiron exactly, opening up old wounds and forcing me to learn to release and grow. In addition, the intensification of my mother’s illness at the fall equinox coincided with the passage of my progressed Moon over my natal Saturn/Sun/Neptune conjunction. She was hospitalized when P Moon transited Saturn and died as P Moon transited Sun/Neptune, forming a type of New Moon and releasing the bonds of karma.

My mother’s funeral was December 21, 2012 and as my sister said, she would have enjoyed the idea that the end of the Mayan calendar was all about her. Because of the funeral I missed our community Winter Solstice celebration in which my friend Gary Phillips delivered a beautiful love song to […]
