Moon Phase Matrix:
 Balsamic Phase: release, transform, prepare for the new

Moon in Taurus

Emissary of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): All

Emissary of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Ian, The Wind of the East

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Day:

Sun – 28 Degrees Gemini “Society granting bankruptcy, a person leaves the court with mixed feelings.”

Earth – 28 Degrees Sagittarius “A splendidly built bridge, a heritage of unknown ages, still spans the beautiful and wildly primitive stream.”

Sun – 29 Degrees Gemini “The first mockingbird of spring sings from the treetop”

Earth – 29 Degrees Sagittarius “A fat boy mowing the lawn.”

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: “A radical magazine asking for action displays a sensational front page.

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: “a woman’s hat with streamers blown by the east wind”

From the Oracle Report Archives:  We enter the fluid and dreamy Balsamic phase of the Moon today. It is the last of the eight phases of the Moon, and it exists outside time and space to some degree because it is a transition time.  During Balsamic, we release anything that we what we do not want or need to carry with us into the impending lunar month.  Cleansing waters of consciousness flood the field with breaking waves to refresh and renew.

The veils between the worlds are thinnest during Balsamic Moon phase.  Spirit is breathtakingly close.  It is a beautiful thing if we are able to let go of the controls.  A higher power seeks to untangle us from restrictions so that we can begin anew with the New Moon.

And regarding the Sabian Symbols:

For the Sun: The mockingbird symbol is of the bird that tries to appear as something else. So, the symbol speaks of taking the best of something and making it better. The mockingbird takes sounds from other birds and combines them to create their own song. It is a question of whether it is a simple counterfeit copy or is it a unique creation. I am personally intrigued that the symbol for the first mockingbird of spring comes at 29 Gemini – the final day of spring.

For the Earth:  The symbol of the fat boy mowing speaks of appearances and keeping things neat and tidy. The image of the fat boy is one who is comfortable and safe. He is helping to order and organize his world. He is helping-out. Is the energy about the appearances or is it about the superficial and insulated nature of his life?

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28 is the correct date of my upcoming “Choosing a Star” teleclass — my apologies for the typo in last week’s Journal! And thanks to everyone who wrote in to clarify.

That means just 10 days and counting before the class airs! I’m almost done with the calendars, which will go out in the next day or so to everyone who registers.

If you’re interested in attending the class (either live or by replay), please see the information at the end of today’s Journal, or just click here:

Now, on with the overview of the extremely busy week we have ahead!

IT’S HARD TO IMAGINE life getting any more complex than it’s been of late, but looking at the loooong list of planetary aspects on the docket this week, we’re well-advised to focus on simply putting one foot in front of the other.

Trying to figure out what we need to be doing tomorrow or the next day may just add to the overwhelm — so here’s the week divided up by the daily events to help us navigate one day at a time. I’ll only talk about the most influential aspects, since otherwise you (and I) will be at this all day!

MONDAY: This can be a very creative day — Uranus, bringer of insights, is aligned with Pallas Athene, the asteroid named for the goddess of Truth and Wisdom. Be open to divine ideas and sudden inspirations! This influence may also activate our desire to become active in social reform or revolutionary causes, especially since assertive Mars makes a dynamic quintile aspect with Uranus and Pallas.

However, we also have a Sun-Chiron square on Monday, with Venus at the midpoint of the square. This activates old wounds and fears about “who can I really trust?” These concerns may be on a personal level or on a larger scale. This configuration requires us to pause, and to take the time to acknowledge and care for the fearful child within who is afraid that she will never be really safe.

TUESDAY: Creative ideas and activity continue, with Mercury in positive relationship with Uranus and Pallas. Take some time today to write down what you’ve been thinking about, and the insights you’ve received.

And, be aware that voices of doubt may try to dissuade you from accepting your thoughts as valid or worthwhile. Mercury is square Chiron today, so our inner and outer critics know exactly how to open old wounds around trusting our own ideas.

This is also the day of the Solstice — Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, Winter in the Southern. The Sun enters Cancer and begins the new season at 9:24pm PDT (4:24am GMT on Wednesday). The chart for the next three months ultimately looks supportive of deep change (Moon exactly trine Pluto). But to get there, we’ll have to traverse a landscape of distrust and defensiveness (Sun/Mercury square Chiron). We’ll also continue to see verbal battles and polarization of ideologies (Saturn in Sagittarius opposite Ceres/Mercury in Gemini).

WEDNESDAY-THURSDAY: As Mercury conjoins the Sun in Cancer on Wednesday, our thoughts turn to home and family, and how best to create emotional fulfillment. A semisquare to Venus in Taurus indicates some minor obstacles arise, perhaps due to a lack of funds or a disagreement over values.

Thursday is the only “free” day of the week, with no major aspects in play. However, that doesn’t mean we’ll be sitting with nothing to do! At the very least, we can sort through everything that has come forward over the past few days, and clear our slates to be ready for the New Moon on Friday.

FRIDAY-SATURDAY: Mars in Cancer opposes the asteroid Juno on Friday and squares Jupiter on Saturday. This is the first phase of an energy wave that will grow over the next few weeks, leading up to the Mars-Pluto opposition on July 2 and the Mars-Uranus square on July 17.

That was a lot of astrologese — in short, Mars is beginning to activate some very potent energies that can potentially disrupt alliances and transform old power structures. Many will be taking a very defensive posture and looking for ways to blame others for events.

FRIDAY’S NEW MOON occurs in Cancer at 7:30pm PDT (2:30am GMT on Saturday). The Sabian symbol for the lunation reads:

“A man bundled in fur leads a shaggy deer: The need to overcome stagnation and ‘cold’ during a trial of endurance.”

What we will need to “endure” over the course of the coming lunar cycle is for each of us to contemplate — but this interpretation from astrologer Dane Rudhyar may help us focus our intentions:

“In India, the deer was the symbol of Brahma, the Creative God. The antlers represent the extension of the mind-power located in the head. The new path may lead to cold regions, requiring insulation from harsh circumstances. The will leads the mind on toward the spiritual North of the soul.

“A period of trial is implied. The mind may seek to escape its limits by venturing forth toward an idealized goal — the North Star, perhaps. This represents A Testing of the Will.”


(I had not read this Sabian symbol before naming my upcoming class “Choosing a Star” – I love the synchronicity!)

SATURDAY: Two trine aspects today reassure us that necessary changes can occur without the world needing to completely fall apart first. The Venus-Pluto trine supports a deepening of relationships and an ability to focus on shared values as a way of finding common ground. The Saturn-Eris trine provides the strength and courage for us to stand our ground on important issues — even when our stance is unpopular or meets with dissent.

The Mars-Jupiter square is exact today, so be aware that angers are easily triggered, especially when it seems that fairness and justice are not being served.

SUNDAY: Our mood today may depend on which side of the bed we happen to get up on. On one side is the Saturn-Ceres opposition, which manifests as a feeling of emotional lack based on not feeling heard or understood. This may be due to having too many outer responsibilities but feeling like it’s not OK to ask for the help we need. The requirement of this aspect is that we put taking care of ourselves on the priority list — which means we need to let go of the belief that says we have to be completely self-sufficient to be worthwhile.

Getting out of the other side of the bed, we step into the ease of the Mars-Neptune trine. This aspect represents the ability of the ego and the higher self to work in harmony to create emotional balance. Compassion is at the heart of this aspect — compassion for self as well as for others.

So, really, no matter which side of the bed we roll out of on Sunday, the planets we meet want to teach us about love and understanding. And perhaps we need the challenge of the one side to propel us into the gift of the other.

JUST 10 DAYS until my teleclass! The title is “Choosing a Star,” based on the profound spiritual choices we will be making, on both personal and planetary levels.

Think of this class as a 90-minute “NorthPoint Journal” that you can use to plan for and navigate the energies that will be working with us over the next six months. I’ll start off with an overview of planetary influences for the remainder of 2017 and then spend a good portion of the time walking through the energies week-by-week.

The class will air live on Wednesday, June 28, and will be recorded for replay for those who cannot attend at that exact time. Here’s the first part of the class description:

Choosing a Star
Astrological guidance for July through December 2017

Live Broadcast on Wednesday, June 28
4pm PDT | 5pm MDT | 6pm CDT | 7pm EDT | 11pm GMT

Most of us are aware of the upcoming “American Eclipse” in late August, a Total Eclipse of the Sun that will be visible in a 70-mile-wide path across the United States, from Oregon on the Pacific Ocean to the Carolinas on the Atlantic. This powerful eclipse occurs in the sign of Leo the Lion, activating inner courage and inspiration, and initiating creative action.

But many may not know that this pivotal eclipse is activating the influence of two fixed stars: Regulus, whose name comes from the Latin for “little king,” and Muhlifain, which means “the bright star of the oath” in old Arabic. This dual activation challenges us to make a personal vow as to our intentions going forward. We can commit to expressing the truly regal qualities of Leo the Lion– generosity of spirit, joy, openheartedness, and childlike appreciation. As we hold these energies, we are a part of creating the New Wave that will carry us into a deeper spiritual connection toward the end of the calendar year. On the other hand, if we waver in our daily commitment, it will be easy to be drawn into the drama, power struggles, and childishness characteristic of the lower end of the Leo spectrum.

In this teleclass, we’ll talk about the karmic implications of this Total Eclipse and the many other astrological events in the last half of 2017, and explore how they may impact us on personal and social levels. We’ll also walk week-by-week through each month to see the opportunities and challenges we will be working with collectively and individually.

Before the class, you will receive a pdf of calendars showing planetary aspects for the next six months, so you can print them ahead of time and take notes during class. After the class airs, everyone who registered will receive a link to the replay and access to the slideshow.

I hope you can join us!

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: This can be a year of new beginnings on many levels. You can tap into higher insights and ideas that will propel you to take steps in surprising directions. It will be important to stay fluid in your expectations, and to let go of attachments to old perceptions that might interfere with your ability to trust your knowing. Relax and let go of old defenses that only serve to limit your potentials. You have all you need within, and no one else can take that essential power from you.

In peace,


Pam

For the Earth:
  The flag bearer is the one out at the front waving the flag in battle. They are a target by the enemy, if for no other reason, because they are the loudest and the most colorful. They are the person leading the charge, that the rest of the army are following. These others are looking to you, for the courage you show for your convictions.

Moon Phase Matrix: Disseminating Moon Phase: share, demonstrate, teach

Moon in Pisces

Emissary of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): All

Emissary of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Ian, The Wind of the East

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Day:

Sun – 25 Degrees Gemini “A Gardener trimming large palm trees”

Earth – 25 Degrees Sagittarius “A chubby little rich boy rides upon a hoppyhorse.”

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: “A radical magazine asking for action displays a sensational front page.

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: “a woman’s hat with streamers blown by the east wind”

Yesterday, treading lightly was surely in order, as the GOP congressmen found out while out to practice baseball. I noted yesterday about Wise men say only fools rush in. We seem to be at a place where discourse has gone by the wayside, and actions are taking their place. If the strength of ones thoughts aren’t enough, then actions are taking over. But where else might we be looking in yesterday’s discourse that was highjacked by this false flag? It was flag day – why would anyone want to think about that? It was the President’s birthday??

For the Sun: Today’s gardener trimming symbol speaks to clearing out the garbage of the past to give a fresh clean image. It’s time to dive in to bring order and neatness. Cast off the old and unneeded. That which does not serve.

For the Earth:  The visual of the Chubby Rich boy is someone who has everything in life playing and doing whatever they want to. It is safe and comfortable to do so. But in playing, he is not seeing or paying attention to the world outside. It is just practice and play. But one day, he will have to prove himself. Be wary of sitting in this energy. It can be enjoyed, but seems to get you nowhere. Life happens.

Moon in Aquarius

Emissary of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): All

Emissary of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Ian, The Wind of the East

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Day:

Sun – 24 Degrees Gemini “Carefree Children skating on ice.”

Earth – 24 Degrees Sagittarius “A bluebird, a sign of good luck and happiness, is standing at the door of the house.”

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: “A radical magazine asking for action displays a sensational front page.

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: “a woman’s hat with streamers blown by the east wind”

Review your feelings from this month’s energy and teach what you are learning.

For the Sun: The skating on ice speaks to treading lightly or carefully going forward. On ice, you cannot be sure of how safe it will be, so take care as you move forward. Tread lightly, as if on eggshells. Wise men say only fools rush in. Be wary of blindly rushing into anything – you may get to the point where you can’t safely return to where you began.

For the Earth:  The bluebird is the symbol of good luck and happiness. It is a sign of good fortune, a comfortable home and a sense that one belongs. Ted Andrew’s Animal Speak talks of the seasonal nature of the Bluebird – how the Pueblo Indians saw the bluebird as a winter bird as it would migrate south during the snows of winter and then leave to the north when the desert would get hot. So, it was also a sign of fertility, noting the natural cycles and seasons.

Sunday, 11 June, 2017  (posted 13 June, 2017)

6/13 ~ Mercury (learning & mind) ~trine~ Jupiter (education & consciousness):

This energy is great for expanding your mind, learning something new or taking a class. It’s time to plan for the future and start getting organized. However, you may feel less disciplined and more creative, which is fine in the beginning, but eventually focus & discipline will have to be engaged to ground your new ideas, thoughts or concepts. You have to ask your Self, ‘How bad do you want it?’ If you are self-aware, awake & alert, you will be able to see (and seize) the opportunities as they present themselves. It may ‘appear’ to be luck, but it’s really more that you were in alignment with the Cosmos, present & positive, and ultimately, able to trust & follow your instincts. Practice, there is no perfection. Being optimistic & looking for opportunity in every experience will magnetize the positive and naturally repel the negative, leading right where you want to be! Take advantage of this good energy to connect to whatever it is you are trying to create in your life at this time.

6/13 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):

This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to think before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or not ‘get it’ altogether, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others (humans) so there are no misunderstandings.

6/15 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~oppose~ Saturn (physical limits & definition of reality):

This is an annual process of development. The Sun makes it personal and about you the individual. Saturn helps move your timeline along and build the literal aspects of life, the basics of providing for yourself (food, shelter etc) and your personal limitations. What renewed aspect of Self got activated about 6-months ago and how do you want that to fully develop over the next 6-months? This is a potent midpoint, the most powerful course-correcting time in any cycle, this one being an annual meeting between Sun & Saturn, a check-point between you and your responsibilities. Each year, you evolve, some years more consciously than others so this is a good time to check in with your own personal definitions of what you are or are no longer responsible for. Often, this energy activates a push-pull between who you are and who you want to be; between what you want to do and what you have to do. My age-old advice is to: do what you gotta do so you can do what you wanna do. And it while it may not be the easiest path, it’s usually worth it for the peace of mind it brings. You may swing between extremes of fulfilling all your obligations to the neglect of your Truth & Purpose -or- neglecting your obligations and doing whatever you choose, which only means those obligations will be there when you get to them and they will have most likely increased by the time you do. Balance is the key! Practice, there is no perfection and it’s time to practice handling business before pleasure.

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Day:

Sun – 23 Degrees Gemini “Three fledglings in a nest high up in a tree”

Earth – 23 Degrees Sagittarius “A group of immigrants fulfilling the requirements for entering a new country.”

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: “A radical magazine asking for action displays a sensational front page.

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: “a woman’s hat with streamers blown by the east wind”

The moon moves into the disseminating phase today. It is a time to communicate and share your vision of the month. As it is related to the first quarter phase, it is about action. You should review your feelings from this month’s energy and teach what you are learning.

For the Sun: Living in close proximity can be both challenging and comforting depending on the circumstances. The energy of the day calls for leaning on that connection as a source of support. Independence is close, but you can rely on that integration of spirit and body.

For the Earth:  This symbol speaks to the possibility of a better and brighter future. But it’s a future that must be earned. Some of the requirements are structural (citizenship requirements and governmental needs), and some more social like language and dress. Life must be integrated together in your new surroundings in order to get balanced. But by doing so, you fulfill the promise of better things.

 

I can’t help but think of the interaction of the symbols this month with the present political conditions. Radical magazines, women speaking, Immigrants, Oh My!

Much is happening in the galaxy around us. I grabbed this shot of the planetary interactions from the daily report yesterday on Suspicious0bservers.com

Weekly Forecast for June 12-18, 2017 ~ contributed by Hillory Skott

Weekly Forecast for June 12-18, 2017
~ contributed by Hillory Skott

 

There is much going on this week in the realm of communication
and long-term goals. Life will make more sense when you are
aligned with your own highest good. This week is creating this
alignment.  Go with the flow – paddle when necessary.

 

Tuesday is a potent day for communication. Mercury is in harmonious
aspect to generous Jupiter in Libra. Mercury is in it’s own sign of Gemini.
The gift to gab is at hand, however, it’s more than that, bigger, deeper.
If you have important things to say or write do it now. If there has been
something that you have wanted to say to someone this energy will help
you to release it with grace and ease and skill. And then you can finally
move on. Imagine that.

 

Also on Tuesday, 12 hours later there is a stressful connection between
clever Mercury in curious Gemini and Spiritualizing Neptune in dreamy
Pisces. Neptune anchors us to what cannot be anchored. We become
one to know. Great work can be done staring at the stars, watching the
clouds float by. Even taking a hot bubbly bath could have miraculous
results. It is in our ability to receive that we have the honor of giving.
Be willing to let go of the reigns. Neptune brings change by dissolving
the outworn.

 

Thursday Saturn is getting us in contact with reality again. Back down
to earth. Get your head out the clouds and make a plan Stan. Nothing
new is going to happen if you do not plan for it to happen. With all the
clear thinking this week you are likely to receive a very clear idea of
how to proceed to achieve your goals. Be sure your goals align you
with your happiness. Saturn expects you to step up to the plate and
work. You are the expert of your life – Start making executive decisions.

 

Saturn opposition Sun might be a painful reality check. It is equally likely
to be the clarity you need to steadily progress in the direction of the most
rewarding life possible for you and those you love. Keep your eyes on the
prize. Don’t be duped. On Thursday you will have a clear line of sight into
ways you might be deceiving yourself for the sake of the comfort of sameness.
Disillusionment can be painful, but it’s better to be working with the truth than
some distorted version of it. Saturn will point the way to go to bring the most
long term value and reward. Saturn will help you embrace the responsibility.

 

Neptune turns retrograde in Pisces this Friday. It will be back tracking for
five whole months. This is great news for us sensitive creative types.
Neptune taps us into the cosmic soup. Great art is inspired from the
Neptunian realm. For the next five months let inspiration be the leader
in your life. What brings you joy? Create a sound track for your life right
now. Neptune is like the patron saint of artists, writers, musicians, psychics,
movie stars, poets and junkies. We need a break from the harsh realities-
Neptune provides it.

 

If there was a creative project or idea you started but never finished Neptune
might like you to pick that old idea up and dust it off. It may work very well now.
If it is an idea that keeps returning there is a reason for it. Your inner knowing
is strong with Neptune retrograde. Trust the guidance of your own heart now.
Move in the direction of the highest expression of your deepest self – your true
work here on earth. Many Blessings for a most fruitful week.

Moon Phase Matrix: Full Moon Phase: illumination, realization, fulfillment

Moon in Capricorn

 

Emissary of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): All

Emissary of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Ian, The Wind of the East

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Day:

Sun – 22 Degrees Gemini “Dancing couples crowd the barn in a harvest festival”

Earth – 22 Degrees Sagittarius “A Chinese laundry.”

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: “A radical magazine asking for action displays a sensational front page.

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: “a woman’s hat with streamers blown by the east wind”

Happy Monday! Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls. – Joseph Campbell

For the Sun: We need to regularly celebrate in life. Much of our year is organized in these celebrations and festivals. And we have developed the way to celebrate within our countries, communities and families. So, under this symbol, feel the celebration, take the time to gather with friends, dance and sing.

For the Earth:  The Chinese laundry symbol speaks of a working-class atmosphere, with people working in a non-glamorous environment, feeling un appreciated, possibly disrespected or racially profiled negatively. This is a symbol you must work with to turn to as positive as you can, as on the surface it feels bad. But consider that there is respect in a job well done. But care must be felt toward the negative feeling on the situation.

NorthPoint Journal: Your Guide to Planetary Energies for June 12 to 18, 2017 by Pam Younghans


NorthPoint Journal

by Pam Younghans

Highlighted Aspects This Week 

TUE: Mercury semisquare Uranus, Mercury trine Jupiter, Pluto quincunx Ceres, Mercury square Neptune
THU: Sun opposite Saturn, Venus sesquiquadrate Saturn, Mercury quincunx Pluto
FRI: Neptune goes retrograde, Mercury conjunct Ceres
SAT: Last Quarter Moon 4:32am (11:32am GMT)
SUN: Sun sextile Uranus, Mercury opposite Saturn 

THE COMING WEEK sees us being strongly influenced by both Neptune and Saturn — a complicated scenario, given that these two planets have such different lesson plans. Neptune’s intention is to help us transcend the dramas and difficulties of the physical plane through developing stronger trust, faith, and compassion, and by spending time in meditation, surrendering to the flow of our lives, and letting go of the ego’s need to always be in control.On the other hand, Saturn provides a reality check, with the goal of helping us see more clearly what is and isn’t possible in practical terms. The Ringed Planet wants us to work hard, to establish concrete agendas, and to learn discipline and patience. Saturn is the “Dr. Phil” of the solar system, always asking, “And how’s that working for you?”

This is like trying to meditate while the news is on in the background, or like trying to write an essay when you can barely keep your eyes open. It also reminds me of when I was in college and taking courses in both Spanish and German at the same time — with the classes back-to-back, I found myself answering in Spanish while I was in German class, and vice versa.

THE MENTAL CONFUSION may be strongest on Tuesday, as Mercury makes challenging aspects to both Uranus and Neptune. With Mercury also in aspect to over-the-top Jupiter, we’ll need to watch a tendency to say, “Whatever — I’m just going to do this crazy thing, even if it makes no sense.”

Caution is vital, because on Thursday, Saturn opposes the Sun in Gemini, so we’ll quickly see the consequences of any missteps, ill-advised decisions, or miscommunications. A second wave of realism hits on Sunday when Saturn opposes Mercury, and another layer of “inconvenient truth” reaches our consciousness.

CONTRAST those “real-world” concerns with the fact that ethereal Neptune’s influence is very strong now. The watery planet is virtually at a standstill this week, and will reverse direction on Friday to begin its five-month retrograde phase.

At its best, Neptune can help increase our intuition, sensitivity to others, and receptivity to the subtle realms. We more easily access higher guidance, travel the inner planes, and trust in the support we receive from nonphysical when Neptune is strong.

But Neptune is also associated with disillusionment, carelessness, escapist tendencies, and being easily fooled due to wearing too-thick rose-colored glasses. Perhaps, though, we can be grateful that Saturn is also strong this week, since a more objective approach may be of benefit.

A PLANET is actually closest to the Earth when it appears to be moving backward, so with Neptune retrograde until November 22, we can consider the planet’s influence to be enhanced over the next few months. This effect is pretty subtle, which means it may not knock us over with new spiritual awareness. But it does mean that we can benefit by spending more time in contemplation and creative activities during this period, so that the seeds of spiritual awakening have every opportunity to grow.

Astrologer Bil Tierney writes these words about the opportunities of Neptune’s retrograde phase:

“Hopefully, retrograde Neptune enables us to feel more unified and whole from within once we have wrapped up loose ends internally. We are encouraged to dissolve distorted impressions accumulated from our past that have become too crystalized. In doing so, we are able to renew ourselves spiritually.

“On a constructive level, while Neptune is retrograde, we may take the time to explore the fertile world of our untapped imagination, allowing inspiration to lead us to greater awareness about our latent abilities. It can be an excellent time to further strengthen one’s powers of visualization and imagery, and therefore can be very beneficial for those who want to advance their creative talents in whatever field they show promise. Self-discipline is still needed where Neptune is concerned if we hope to receive the emotional enrichment this planet can grant us during its retrograde phase.”

JUST A LITTLE MORE THAN TWO WEEKS until my teleclass! I’m calling it “Choosing a Star” based on the profound time of personal and planetary decision-making we are entering.

Think of this class as a 90-minute “NorthPoint Journal” that you can use to plan for and navigate the energies that will be working with us over the next six months. I’ll start off with an overview of planetary influences for the remainder of 2017 and then spend a good portion of the time walking through the energies week-by-week.

The class will air live on Wednesday, June 28, and will be recorded for replay for those who cannot attend at that exact time. Here’s the first part of the class description:

Choosing a Star
Astrological guidance for
July through December 2017
Live Broadcast on Wednesday, June 18
4pm PDT | 5pm MDT | 6pm CDT | 7pm EDT | 11pm GMT

Most of us are aware of the upcoming “American Eclipse” in late August, a Total Eclipse of the Sun that will be visible in a 70-mile-wide path across the United States, from Oregon on the Pacific Ocean to the Carolinas on the Atlantic. This powerful eclipse occurs in the sign of Leo the Lion, activating inner courage and inspiration, and initiating creative action.

But many may not know that this pivotal eclipse is activating the influence of two fixed stars: Regulus, whose name comes from the Latin for “little king,” and Muhlifain, which means “the bright star of the oath” in old Arabic. This dual activation challenges us to make a personal vow as to our intentions going forward. We can commit to expressing the truly regal qualities of Leo the Lion– generosity of spirit, joy, openheartedness, and childlike appreciation. As we hold these energies, we are a part of creating the New Wave that will carry us into a deeper spiritual connection toward the end of the calendar year. On the other hand, if we waver in our daily commitment, it will be easy to be drawn into the drama, power struggles, and childishness characteristic of the lower end of the Leo spectrum.

In this teleclass, we’ll talk about the karmic implications of this Total Eclipse and the many other astrological events in the last half of 2017, and explore how they may impact us on personal and social levels. We’ll also walk week-by-week through each month to see the opportunities and challenges we will be working with collectively and individually.

Before the class, you will receive a pdf of calendars showing planetary aspects for the next six months, so you can print them ahead of time and take notes during class. After the class airs, everyone who registered will receive a link to the replay and access to the slideshow.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: Important decisions are on the agenda for you this year, ones that require you to take a good look at your long-term goals and overall expectations for your life. The choices that you make have the potential to open your life to new possibilities, if you are flexible and willing to take an educated risk. Your thinking process will be strongly influenced by your emotions, and family issues will come into play as you determine your best course of action.

In peace,
