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

Mary Kern

By Mary Kern, President of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School

This article features insights on the Goddess, the seasonal energies as Goddesses, the phases of life, the power of 8 and 12, and the nine Morgens.

May 2019 found me in Barcelona joining my friend, Sarah, a kindred seeker who moved abroad to enjoy a simpler life. Our destination was the Portuguese International Conference of the Divine Feminine. After a brief stay in Spain we traveled to Lisbon with much help from Cristina Moreira, a SAMS’ associate in Portugal who extended a warm welcome and helped make every step of the trip perfect. (Much gratitude for all her help.)

Returning to Basics

The Underpinnings of the Practice of Shamanic Astrology

~ By Beau Taylor

Lately I’ve been going ‘back to basics’, turning my attention to the writings of some of the early pioneers in humanistic astrology in order to more deeply inform my personal astrological foundation.

As a clinical therapist, my roots are in both depth psychology and systems theory. I view human beings and the context within which we live as an interconnected, interpenetrating system of wholes. Nothing is separate.

The survival and optimal functioning of one organism is dependent upon and interrelated with the experience and outcome all other organisms in our known universe. As one human being, I contribute to this cosmic dance: I have an impact but I can never ‘stand apart’ from the dance to be fully objective about it, nor can I responsibly claim to be an expert source of  knowledge about how it works or how it will unfold. I am part of it: a whole within the Whole. 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.
