November 2018 Astrology - Break Through to Pure Potentiality, Higher Consciousness and New Paradigms

In November we are in the astrological time of Scorpio (October 22 – November 21), ruled by the planet Pluto, (in ancient time Mars). During this time, we are influenced by the Element of Metal, the season of Fall, the time of Harvest, with the organs of the LI and LU, and the planet Venus in Five Element Theory.

Debra Kaatz is a spiritual Renaissance woman. A prolific author, of titles such as Characters of Wisdom: Taoist Tales of the Acupuncture Points, Receiving Spirit—The Practice of Five Element Acupuncture, and The Alchemical Path, all with master Chinese calligrapher Harrison Xinshi Tu, and an equally prolific reader (she tries to read a book a day).
Activating Chakras with Planetary Frequencies

Chakras organize the body on the physical level and allow life force to enter and be processed and expressed in the body. They are places where matter and consciousness come together, and energy is alchemically transformed from the psychophysical to the spiritual. The structure of each chakra contains a nucleus that concentrates or stabilizes the energy of the chakra, and a vortex that refracts consciousness outward. We think of the chakras as toroidal geometries expressing the vortex.
October Astrological Perspective – A Time to Harvest and Harmonize

Aloha! Thanks for being an incredible healing force of light and love in this world right now! This month, I am going to do things a little differently and offer some combinations and treatments that I feel will be valid and useful all month long.

Sylvia Pelcz-Larsen, MSOM, LAc - Jupiter’s Belle Inc. Boulder, CO

Born in Rota, Spain and raised (mostly) in Oslo, Norway, Sylvia moved with her father, a devout capitalist who worked in shipping and investing, her mother, a stay-at-home mom, and her brother, who was into engineering and cars, to the U.S. at the age of 13. Within three years, she managed to get herself kicked out of several boarding schools and into the more important role (at the time) of traveling Deadhead—traipsing across the country on the heels of the Grateful Dead. Always into music, art, and space as a child and knowing that someday she wanted to do something that’d make a difference (to others, to the planet), she knew she’d end up having an impact at some point, she just wasn’t sure how. By the time she reached her late 20s, the how became clearer. Although she’d studied goldsmith-ing at the Rochester Institute of Technology and later earned her BA in anthropology and her BFA in art history from the University of Colorado, these were more avocations than life call-ings. Having experienced signifi
Autumn, The Metal Element And The Alchemist Archetype

The coming of Autumn provides a special opportunity to create resonance with the archetype of the Metal element. This archetype, the Alchemist, is the one who transforms and distils the baser vibrations into more refined expressions of energy. While the external alchemists of old were engaged in finding a process that turned lead (#82 on the periodic table) into gold (#79 on the periodic table), the masters of inner alchemy worked on a different level of refinement. Inner alchemists focused on the refinement of denser forms of physical reality into the higher frequencies of spirit. From the quantum perspective, this is the process of moving from particle to wave form reality.
A Self-Care Harvest

The fire energy of summer is settling down and the Metal energy of fall is here. The leaves are changing colors and letting go, returning to Earth. It is a time for gratitude for the abundance and great harvest we have in our lives. This is a great time to look at what burdens we have been carrying. Are they necessary? Is it time to be like a leaf and let them go of our old habits to create new ones. Here are some self-care tips to assist you in making these transitions. Happy Fall!

Welcome to September: Tools for Healing the World

Welcome to September! Word of this mostly Virgo month is ingress, which is the movement of a planet from one sign into the next. Ingress derives of the Latin ingressus, to 'go in' or 'enter'. A chart is calculated for the moment of entry into a new sign. There are four taking place in September; they are Chiron, Venus, Mars and the Sun. We look at the ingress as a moment of ritual, contemplation, and possibilities.
