A Gemini Teaching

by Mary Kern

I have heard it said a gift is never received until it is “fully” appreciated. I woke one morning recently with a grateful heart for the gift of my eldest sister, Dee. Our Shamanic Astrology paradigm allows me to see the flow of her soul and the beautiful gift she brought with her past mastery in Capricorn, (Capricorn Moon) perhaps patriarchal but dedicated to organizing and creating operating instructions to align community “in formation”.

Her current life intent (Rising Sign) was to evolve a higher level, a new octave of this Capricorn energy. This so perfectly aligns with what our collective consciousness now is dynamically exploring. Dee’s life story points the way to help us all navigate the seemingly current chaos.

Dee’s Venus, her current life version of the Sacred Feminine, is in Gemini. Learning Gemini gave her the capacity to bring imagination, humor and mischief to the world as an advocate to her higher octave of Capricorn.

She taught middle school for over fifty years employing her Gemini humor and its disarming, childlike innocence combined with the animated innocence of a Taurus Mercury, Sun and IC (in the 5th house) to illuminate, cajole, and playfully open space for what could otherwise be unruly, defiant, autonomous-seeking teen-aged behavior. What a trickster gift she had to get kids to do what they were asked to do. Read More

The Current Predicament of Cancer: On the Front Lines with the chart of Marianne Williamson

by Kate Rusko

The transits of Pluto and Saturn on the Capricorn South Node have slowly but surely been levelling the playing fields that we have all known, and the time is coming for radically new structures. But what about the other side of the equation: what about the Cancer North Node? 

The spokespeople for upleveling the Cancer archetype, such as Marianne Williamson, are here to stir up our imagination, our disgust, our fears, and hopefully our love.

We are now half-way through our collective journey of the Cancer-Capricorn Nodal transit that began November 6th, 2018, when the Nodes shifted from Leo-Aquarius into Cancer-Capricorn. On May 4, 2020 the Nodes will move into Gemini-Sagittarius creating a nearly 18 month window. Read More

A Seed by Dane Rudhyar

written in 1973

I feel we are at the
threshold of a new age,
and that we need now,
more than anything else,

a new approach
to human relationships
and to social organization.

We need a planetary approach,
we need a synthetic approach.

As Above So Below, As Within So Without

by Dana Zia

I started studying Astrology in the late 80s after meeting Daniel Giamario and receiving my first reading from him. At that time, he was living in Maui and was teaching one day classes on different aspects of this paradigm. I loved those classes! His way of perceiving and communicating Astrology was so digestible and usable to even those that hardly knew anything about it. I became a groupie.

Fast forward 30 years to present day and I am still studying Astrology with Daniel and now Cayelin Castell and other Shamanic Astrologers. Even though Shamanic Astrology (SA) is the most understandable and down to Earth form of Astrology I’ve ever studied, there is no lack of depth in it. I have found it is multilayered and as rich as the sky itself.

One of the foundational principles of SA is the opening lines to the Emerald Tablets “As Above So Below, As Within So Without”. This axiom is a reflection of the patterns of the constellations and the cycles of our Solar System and how it affects us transitory mortals spinning around on our beloved blue marble, Earth.

When I first heard Daniel and Cayelin use this statement, I understood the basics of it and thought it was quite clever to relate it to the stars but I really had no idea how deep this goes! Read More

Michelle Obama on “Becoming” through Saturn and Pisces

by Kate Rusko

It’s a relief when the true essence of Saturn as wisdom keeper and guide has the opportunity to express itself. And when this essence is expressed through a powerful woman who is also of colour, and has not yet reached her second Saturn return, you know that something big is shifting.

Michelle Obama is currently wrapping up a 34 city tour promoting her book, “Becoming”, released 13 days (November 13, 2018) after the beginning of her 7th Venus return on November 1st, lasting until June 9, 2020. It became the year’s best seller after only two weeks, and may be the best selling memoir ever. Certainly her publisher checked her chart.
