Asteroids: Completing the Horoscope’s Story. With Jessica Adams.

September 10, 2015

Before the invention of the telescope, only the celestial bodies visible to the naked eye were used in astrology. Since the late 18th century, discoveries of new planets, asteroids, centaurs, trans-Neptunian and other objects in our solar system have been increasing the potential cast of characters that can be used in the horoscope. The feminine earth sign of Virgo is thought by many to be ruled by the asteroids. Using Virgo’s analytical skill, classification ability, and powers of synthesis we can use the asteroids in our horoscopes to gain a more perfect understanding of ourselves. Hear our guest, astrologer Jessica Adams explain why modern astrology is not complete unless we include the asteroids! Who are they? What archetypes do they represent in the Roman/Latin family tree? How do they round out the story of our horoscope and increase our self-understanding? Find out from Jessica which asteroids to include in your horoscope, and where you can find information about them.

Chiron: the Wounded Healer. With Zane B. Stein.

September 3, 2015

There is a Native American prophecy, which states that when the planet of healing is discovered in the sky, the sacred warrior teachings will return to earth. – Larry Williamson, The Sacred Warrior Archetype. Chiron, representing the ‘Wounded Healer’ archetype in astrology, entered our cosmic consciousness relatively recently, in 1977. With its discovery, came heightened interest on the part of astronomers and astrologers to study and research the ‘maverick’ celestial bodies in our solar systems: asteroids, centaurs, minor planets and exoplanets. The time of its discovery coincides with the blossoming of the human potential movement, personal and global healing, and integrative and holistic sciences. Hear from special guest Zane B. Stein, Chironic astrologer and leading authority on Chiron. What does the Centaurean body Chiron represent in the astrological chart? How can we find the gift in our personal Chiron wound? Learn what Chiron teaches us, helps us heal and become whole.

ZaneBStien2015Zane B. Stein has been involved with astrology since 1969. The year 1977 brought a whole new dimension to his astrological career with the discovery of a new minor planet, Chiron, which Zane began studying only weeks later. In 1978 he organized the Association for Studying Chiron (ASC) which began collecting data and information about Chiron research from astrologers the world over. Zane is considered the leading authority on Chiron. His groundbreaking book Essence and Application: A View from Chiron revolutionized modern astrology and is still the most widely read text on the subject. Zane’s articles on various centaurs have appeared in a number of astrological publications. He is currently seeking to unravel the meanings of other Centaurean bodies, trans-Neptunians, and some of the more unique asteroids.

The Evolution of the Ego and the Enneagram. With Jessica Dibb.

August 20, 2015

Each of us has an Ego. We tend to project a manufactured self-image characterized by the roles we play, masks we wear, labels we acquire and images we devise. It is not our true self, our essence. Not knowing our true self keeps us off-balance, ungrounded and insecure. How can we understand our moments of indecision, poor choices, and self-undoing behaviors, which by default often become our path? The ancient Greeks interest in “Knowing Thyself” and developing the human psyche gave rise to what is known today as the Enneagram. Often described as a personality typing system, it illuminates our core issues and motivations, our imbalances, and the ways we tend to cope with life. Our guest Jessica Dibb is an expert in the magical and transformational workings of the Enneagram. Learn about the basic personality types and directions of growth and deterioration each takes. Understanding ourselves through the Enneagram, we can live with more freedom, operating from Essence instead of Ego.

JessicaDibb2015Since 1982 Jessica Dibb – Founder, Spiritual Director, and Principal Teacher of Inspiration Consciousness School, has designed and facilitated unique workshops, classes, and on-going trainings grounded in a highly integrated model of psycho-spiritual healing and development to support self-actualization. Her teachings assist people in cultivating consciousness through all stages of life from conception onward. Using Integrative Breathwork, psychodynamic principles, the Enneagram and established and emergent wisdom teachings, Jessica facilitates embodied awareness of each moment. Her intuitive teaching style, individualized and attuned attention to students, and integrative approach helps to facilitate long-lasting transformations. She also teaches nationally and internationally, including teaching Integrative Breathwork at the Psychotherapy Networker Conference for several years, and being a principal presenter at the International Enneagram Conference for over a decade.

Leo: the Inner Child in All of Us. With Linda Brady and Michael Brady.

August 13, 2015

Yes, it is true. We all have an “Inner Child,” who may have unconscious, and often unresolved fears, wounds and traumas. From these wounds defensive or aggressive behavior patterns instinctively arise, intending to protect us physically and emotionally from hurtful experiences of neglect, denial, abandonment, disapproval, abuse or some form of rejection. Fear not! As adults, we have a second chance to become our own best parents to our Inner Child. We can provide structure, support, supervision, and protection to our emotionally vulnerable self whenever our Child feels threatened or off-balance. Isn’t it time we found out how? Bring along your own chart and join our interview with two experts in the fields of psychology and karmic astrology. Our guests and former teachers, Linda and Michael Brady of Partners for Karmic Freedom, have made a career of conducting interventions with their clients and their Inner Children, helping them live healthier, happier, and more conscious lives.

LindaBrady2015For 40 years Linda Brady has been a holistic teacher and karmic astrologer with clients in 34 states and 10 countries. As President and Co-founder of Partners for Karmic Freedom, Inc., she has helped more than 2000 people successfully navigate their own life paths, and mentored over a 100 karmic astrologers through her 3 year Internship Program. Her 1998 book, Discovering Your Soul Mission: How to Use Karmic Astrology to Create the Life You Want, was reproduced in four languages. Readers received a blueprint for living a life many never thought possible. Linda and Michael’s new e-Book release scheduled for November 2015, entitled DISCOVERING YOUR SOUL MISSION: New Rules for a New Age, can be preordered at creativech@aol.com. Using their unique ground breaking approach to Jungian astrology, they have also created THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD – A Baby Book for Your Inner Child, to help clients discover their “Inner Child”- that precious, young part of themselves.

MichaelBrady2015Michael Brady is the co-founder and V.P. of Partners for Karmic Freedom, with a M.A. in Clinical and Developmental Psychology from Anitoch University. His psychotherapy and karmic astrology background make him an excellent life coach in soul/personality integration, hypnosis and past life regression. The Bradys’ book, THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD: A Baby Book for Your Inner Child, investigates the integration of mind, body and soul. “People are diverse and complicated, with conscious and unconscious aspects. The inner child exemplifies the unconscious at work, wreaking havoc on our holistic health through poor choices. When as adults we become good parents to that child, we live healthier, more conscious lives. The integration of child and adult resolves the mind – body paradigm. The other piece to that integration is our connection to our divine power source, or soul. Listening to and following our inner guidance is the key to having the will and determination to change our lives.”

How long do astrologers need to practice their craft to earn the status of a professional? Are there indicators in the natal chart of astrologers that suggest an aptitude for the profession?

Astrology & Astronomy: Mapping the Marriage of Heaven and Earth. With Brett Joseph.

July 9, 2015

“The Marriage of Heaven and Earth” is a presentation by shamanic astrologer Brett Joseph about the starry stories on which many world traditions are based. We will investigate the cosmological, astronomical, and astrological mysteries hidden within those tales along with the ancient practice of aligning temples to the stars using examples from Newgrange, Giza, Chitzen Itza, Chaco Canyon, Serpent Mound, Washington DC, and other sites. Hear about the 26,000 year Precession of the Equinoxes as it relates to the cyclical evolution of human consciousness; the Turning of the Ages and Galactic Alignment as predicted by the Mayan Calendar and other ancient sources; and the difference between Constellational (Star) and Tropical (Earth) astrology. Learn about the importance of reuniting astronomy (The Above) with astrology (The Below) by looking up as well as within so that we may consciously serve as conduits for the Marriage of Heaven and Earth. As Above, So Below.

GeminiBrett2015Gemini Brett Joseph is a modern mystic, StarryTeller, and shamanic astrologer. He lives in Seattle, Washington when he’s not exploring the world’s sacred sites. Gemini Brett’s childhood astronaut dreams and collegiate curriculums of astronomy and aeronautical engineering were celestial signposts along the road to his right livelihood as an Astrologer. Even in a five-year break from academic pursuit spent chasing his saxophone around the country as a touring musician, wasn’t he really just trying to become a star himself? Since joining the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School in January 2013 Gemini Brett has recorded over 300 readings. In his devotion to release the astrological arts from the negative, past paradigms of patriarchal planet police, Brett travels the world presenting workshops and sacred ceremonies. He heals the condition he calls STARvation by voicing the mysterious vows which have always married the Earth to the Heavens. Gemini Brett’s website is MoreThanAstrology.com
