Moon and Planet Phases – A Doorway to Self-Discovery
Based on my soon-to-be-published book, co-authored with Aswin Subramanyan, we’ll look at the Moon, as our most personally identified self, in phasal relationship with the other planets. This material expands upon Dane Rudhyar’s pioneering lunation cycle work. I’ll touch on the 8 soli-lunar phases and then apply them to Moon-planet synodic cycles. For example, the Moon-Neptune phase illuminates the personal integration of time (Moon) and timelessness (Neptune). Looking at natal charts this way opens a new door into self-awareness.

Lamps in the Dark: The Radiance of 12th House Luminaries
Bolts of consciousness through fog; the generative mist of nonlinear thought: these are some of the ambivalent gifts that luminaries in the 12th House offer.

Re-Envisioning Juno
As one of the most commonly-used asteroids in contemporary astrology, Juno has been burdened with many of the same stifling structures its mythological counterpart was forced to endure. By digging deeper towards broadened concepts of honesty, oathkeeping, and faithfulness, we can better perceive Juno’s relevancy outside the bounds of heteronormative ideas of relational fidelity. When we expand our notion of “commitment” beyond traditional marriage, we also allow Juno’s wisdom to truly sing forth. (All)

Rulers of the Nodes
By natal position and by transit, the nodes and their rulers are a vital source of information. The south node correlates with unconscious security patterns rooted in the past.

What Else Can You Become? The Astrology of the Buddha Within
Times of crisis are times of opportunity – and we are living exceptionally demanding times in anticipation for a new era. Astrology has a unique and deeply insightful way of pointing out the main opportunities and existential demands on us for developing what the Buddhists call “the Perfections” (of Spirit). Join us as we try to interweave planetary world transits and the kind of personal/soul work that they might signify – and require. (Beginner/Intermediate)

On Love and Attachment
Relationships are central to our lives. They are also a form of informal therapy, as they tend to bring out our best and our worst to the surface of feeling; old wounds, demons, and traumas. How loved and secured we once felt (really feel?). Or not. We will learn from psychological theories of attachment what astrologers should keep in mind when consulting with clients on the subject of relationships – and the most relevant astrology significators of it all.
