The Pluto Retrograde and Preparing for 2020

by Cayelin Castell

At the Still Point Of Pluto’s Retrograde it is time to surrender to what has been so we can move toward what is becoming.

Are you Ready for a NEW World, a NEW way of life as we prepare for 2020?

On April 24, 2019 Pluto Stationed Retrograde. Pluto Stations direct at its second still point of the year on October 2/3, 2019. Any planetary Still Point is a place of suspension or pause where the energies remains suspended within minutes of its station point for a few weeks before and after the station point.

The Still Point of any planetary station creates a possible shift in awareness.

At the Still Point Of Pluto’s Retrograde it is time to surrender to what has been so we can move toward what is becoming.

At the Still Point of Pluto going retrograde the Phoenix is diving into the fire – to then rise from the ashes of what has been. At the station direct Pluto goes through rebirth. The Phoenix chooses to die to its old form purposefully diving into the fire of transformational change.

The Window from April 24, 2019 to October 2/3, 2019 could be imagined as a deep dive into surrendering to what is dying so something new is ready to birth come October.

Responsibility of the Shamanic Astrologer

by Daniel Giamario, originator of Shamanic Astrology

This article is a follow-up to last month’s offering entitled Shamanic Astrology is Not Predictive.  I have recently been rereading and reconnecting to some of my original sources of daniel-chimneyinspiration and guidance from the early 1970’s, when the foundations of my astrological and philosophical approach were forming.

Recently I reread a lucid and essential article by Alexander Ruperti from the publication called The Astrological Journal, Volume 17 Number 1, published winter of 1974. Ruperti was a colleague and friend of Dane Rudhyar, and their work cross-pollinated each other.

Ruperti’s book Cycles of Becoming is on our SAMS reading list.

Here are some excerpts from the article, as these main points are still as relevant today, as they were back in 1974, if not more so!

So many of my deep views are expressed in this writing including:
(1) Uselessness of the statistical approach
(2) Irrelevance of a “scientific basis” for astrology
(3) And most importantly, the actual reasons for being an astrologer at this time
