You might want to read this first.….?

A week ago the moon passed thru the Aries portion of the zodiac where she tackled the complications that arise from Jupiter, Chiron, Mars, and Eris in Aries as well.    She’s calmer now in Taurus.

But!  Mars is pretty fiery & hot and so close now to Eris that I fear we’re about to see a lot of firewords until July 6 when Mars, having exhausted himself, as is his nature, rests for a bit in Taurus.  Mars customarily spends about 6 weeks in a zodiac sign.  That’s the normal rhythm of the universe for him.  However, because of retrograde motion Mars will be in Gemini for  (August 21, 2022 – March 26, 2023)  SEVEN MONTHS!  OMG!    FYI   (This is important for those of us who will participate in Beyond Words

For now, remember to take note of what’s happening  in your life around August 21, when Mars crawls from Taurus into Gemini.   Mars will return nearly to this point in time  during his backward motion of this seven-month (yipes!!) retrograde journey.   Mars rules Scorpio as well as Aries, so both those sun sign will feel the slow down motion most, perhaps?    The retrograde period begins late October and lasts until Jan, 2023.  That’s 2 solid months of backward motion in Gemini.  It isn’t until Spring, 2023 before he reaches the 26th degree from where the Rx began.

Eris & Mars form a conjunction on June 27 at 24 degrees of Aries.  The God of War meets The Goddess of War in Aries.  Volumes will be written of the events that will continue until at least 2025.

more later……………   much to discuss, ponder, and contemplate..

stay safe………..

I  can’t even tell you how excited I am to be presenting this program at Kripalu Center in October.  It is literally a dream come true!
My history with Kripalu goes back many decades….so far in fact that it certainly does seem as though destiny has had a hand in everything.  I received their very first catalog in the mail sometime in the late 80’s. But it wasn’t until circa 1992 that I walked thru the door.  I was a full-time, frustrated, stressed out Real Estate Broker & Trainer then. It was August and I was taking The Mystical Path of Yoga with Yoganand. on the recommendation of my local yoga teacher. Nearly everyone but me in the program was a working yoga teacher.  It was an unexpected life-changing experience .   My real interest in going was to meet the guru, Amrit Desai, but, that wouldn’t happen until 2017,.  Still, yoga became an integral part of my life from that point forward.
When I arrived, the receptionist asked me about my employment  and I declared at that moment I was an astrologer.  It wasn’t a lie.  I had a small, side gig going on offering Feng Shui & Astrological Consults.   My expertise in Feng Shui made being in the RE industry tolerable and provided many unusual opportunities to teach, consult, and do research on the art/science.   My avocation was preferable to my vocation.
Over the next 25+ years I returned to Kripalu Center so often I probably should have moved there!   My Karma Yoga included many different jobs, ie. yoga teacher, facilitator, a/v assistant, musician.  I took over 1000 hrs of YTT and worked as a faculty assistant to the many different Yoga presenters that taught at Kripalu .
All said, it was my work within the Inner Quest Intensive under the direction of Aruni Nan Futuronsky that has informed my own teaching of yoga & yoga therapy.   Through my experiences facilitating that program I became particularly interested in yoga (therapy) for mental health, recovery, and spiritual development.  I’ve written a lot of short stories detailing many of my experiences along this Sun/Jupiter line and I look forward to more to tell.
So now, I get to present my own program, which literally took a saturn cycle to imagine, create, and now finally deliver.   I hope you’ll check it out and share the news with like-minded friends.
It’s a program for everyone and you don’t need to know much of anything about astrology or yoga to take it.
The topics we cover are universal; birth/death/loss/fate/change/relationships/health/spirituality.  Life, as it is.  All that is needed is curiosity and a desire to know yourself better.
Possibilities for healing, personal growth, expanded consciousness, spiritual development are inherent in the work.
At the very least you’ll come home with a new plan for time management and stress relief.

The tropical charts above represent the ‘curriculum for our weekend at the Gurukulam.

Regardless of which system/zodiac you use, or what philosophy/tradition you base your interpretations on, the actual movements of the planets are regular and predictable.

On Friday night there’s a exact conjunction of the Moon with Neptune in Pisces.  The general public/collective body is in need of spiritual support.  In these last hours of the gibbous lunar phase, (the full moon is exact on Saturday just after midnight), the discomfort of previous cycles is felt in our emotional/nervous systems as unresolved tension with no apparent relief.   Many will be seduced into their habitual forms of escape/addiction/delusion.

The Virgo/Pisces axis in astrology highlights the concepts of mutability, being flexible, maybe neurotic and  concerned with bringing physical health into balance with spiritual health……more on this later.  The best practices for gibbous days include anything that aids self-development.

The Sun sits between Venus & Mars, perfect timing for self-study on relationships.  To others, to our communities, to ourselves, and to a higher power or whatever you want to call that which is greater than ourselves.

…..to be continued.

Experiential portions of this program include: Asana, pranayama, mudra, yoga nidra, meditation, chant, integrative breathwork (optional, depending on content) art, journaling, expressive movement, dyads & storytelling. Hatha yoga and experience with astrology is not necessary. The practices will be gentle & challenging at the same time. Experiences and insights that stimulate the mind-body-spirit connection can be profoundly transformational. Inner space explorations of outer space can at times stir up the unconscious and help us to see places we don’t often visit consciously.
