Five Steps to Mindfulness
Qualities that start off as weaknesses often develop into tremendous strengths, as we try hard to compensate for them. This is often the case, for example, with the house and sign your Saturn falls in, since Saturn shows areas where we grow in the course of maturing through diligent hard work and self-discipline. We need to periodically re-define ourselves. By hard work, you may have already overcome some of your weaknesses, and so let your consciousness catch up with your growth. Or, you may still be in the process of overcoming some of them since we are always in process but at least acknowledge how far you've come.
The specific ways in which this new astrology differs from the older methods are explained in this book in great detail, but I would like to emphasize one point. In most traditional forms of astrological practice, wherein the astrologer was essentially serving as a fortune-teller, it was assumed that the birth-chart revealed the circumstances that one would encounter in life and that these circumstances in the outer world were predictable and for the most part unalterable. However, it is obvious that the predictability of anything varies according to its level of complexity. For example, a simple animal cell or chemical compound is usually predictable since its nature is simple, since there few variables, and since it has no consciousness or capacity for alternative ways of reacting. The weather is less predictable primarily because there are many unknown variables, although it may still be predicted in many cases based on an understanding of known variables. A human being is least...
The chakras are the seven main energy centers located from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. First described by the Hindu yogis thousands of years ago, the chakra model for understanding human consciousness has survived the test of time and cultural changes. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel, and each of these seven chakras is said to be a spinning wheel, creating a vortex of subtle life energy. The universal life energy is received by the chakras, transformed, and then distributed to the various levels of human activity associated with each chakra.
In the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces, we come to the ending of the personality that started its pilgrimage in Aries. Freedom for Pisces does not lie in the valley of personality achievement but on the higher levels of spiritual growth and development. The symbol of Pisces, two fish tied together represents the two aspects of self the personality and the soul. If the personality becomes the servant of the soul, all is well with Pisces. Serve or suffer is the keynote of Pisces. Where Aries is concerned with beginnings, Pisces is concerned with endings. Pisces begins where Aquarius leaves off, in the second house of resources and values. The values gained through the journey through all the other signs must be brought into full consciousness in Pisces.
The period may have opportunities for study and introspection, withdrawing for reflection and meditation, searching for inner peace, but the turmoil of the transition search will probably make it difficult to concentrate on any of these quiet activities (7 Essence present but secondary to 16 7 Essence).

Expect you to fully develop your understanding of life on a deep intuitive level (9 Soul Urge, weak Intuitive component), or to completely express an inspirational approach to your activities (9 Soul Urge, weak Intuitive component). In your mature years, there is the possibility of increasing your awareness of the spiritual world (11 Maturity Number), but Td be surprised if you work on this very much (weak Intuitive component).
It is important to afford such reverence to the planets on a regular basis, particularly to those planets whose influence one most needs to harmonize. Being mindful of the planets is a yogic observance that has many benefits. That is why an astrologer is often blessed, for in giving reverence to the planets, the planets give their grace to the astrologer as well.
Heart of the Aquarius is in the throat of Kala Purusha. This is a strange statement, but it is related to an innate instinct of the individual. The development of Brahmarandhra chakra provides full consciousness of the invisible and visible worlds around the person so that he could uninterruptedly tap the universal consciousness.

Your sense of home and background is religious, and your attitude toward your parents, idealistic, yet you may change your residence a lot or experience confusion about your identity perhaps you were adopted or grew up with foster parents. You are artistic and musical you don't mind self-sacrifice and you need time by yourself to find your path. With challenging aspects, you can be the wanderer of the world and not feel at home anywhere, until you realize that inner peace of mind is the answer to your problems. You may have an alcoholic or disappearing parent.
Just as swallows navigate through some unknown wondrous system, astrology works in some unknown and wondrous way. Each of us has a unique personal energy that is directly related to the particulars of our souls. We have learned that certain events can only occur at certain times, and the sign of those times is the Planetary Geometry of the planets in the sky. In a similar way, each of us can only be born at a time when the Planetary Geometry is in line with our personal energy. This would mean that the positions of the planets when we were born are reflections of our souls. If we are peaceful in nature, we are born under planetary aspects that reflect our inner peace if we are aggressive in nature, we are born under aspects that signify aggressiveness. Each planet represents its own unique symbolisms that are translated into some form of energy, which varies depending on the planet's position relative to Earth. The positions of the planets at the moment we were born are referred to as...
The asteroids are small planet-like bodies that orbit the Sun in a belt that lies mostly between Mars and Jupiter. They first dawned on human consciousness in the early 1800s. The first four asteroids to be sighted were given the names of four of the great goddesses of classical antiquity Ceres (discovered in 1801), Pallas Athene (discovered in 1802), Juno (discovered in 1804), and Vesta (discovered in 1807). Among the thousands of asteroids known, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta have a special place. While these are not necessarily the largest asteroids, they were the first to be discovered, and as such they have imprinted themselves on human consciousness in a significant way. They also complete the female pantheon of goddesses, rounding out the system of symbols begun in the usual 10 planets. Of the six great goddesses of Olympus, only Aphrodite (Venus) and Artemis (the Moon) are represented in the conventional astrological symbol system. The other four great goddesses of...
Finally, we should recognize that the actual opening of the chakras is a matter connected to the practice of the higher limbs of yoga. The chakras cannot be fully activated by the usage of gems, herbs or external influences, however helpful these may be for ordinary health purposes. The. yogic powers of the chakras are only unfolded by Pranayama, Mantra and Meditation. Such an inner experience of the chakras requires a concentrated spiritual practice (sadhana) grounded in inner peace and connected to an authentic guide and enlightenment tradition.33
Research in many fields (especially physics, psychology, and medicine) is increasingly concerned with the energy aspect of life and of the individual human being. Although we can choose to see astrology as merely a symbolic language, we must admit that symbols are symbols precisely because they refer to some reality which is otherwise inexpressible or incomprehensible to human consciousness. The rather transcendent reality referred to by astrological symbols is energy, a term which is hard to define although everyone speaks of it and experiences it. Not only physicists, but also the more progressive members of the healing professions, are increasingly referring to energy as the fundamental reality underlying all particular manifestations. The reason why astrology is the most complete and accurate symbolic language, as well as the most useful diagnostic tool in the healing and counseling arts, is because astrology is essentially a language of energy, thus enabling practitioners in...
Furthermore, that there are miraculous ecstasies belonging to the more inward man, is beyond dispute. That there are also ecstasies i n the animal man, by reason of an intense, or heightend imagination, is, without doubt. Martin del Ris, an elder of the society of Jesus, in his Magical Disquisitions or Enquiries, makes mention of a certain young man in the city Insulis that was transported with so violent a desire of seeing his mother, that through the same intense desire, as if being rapt up by an ecstasy, he saw her perfectly, although many miles absent from thence and, returning again to himself, being mindful of all that he had seen, gave many true signs of his true presence with his mother.
The Sun sign element shows many things it reveals where you're coming from. In other words, it reveals where your consciousness is rooted, to what realm of experience you are attuned, and from what field of activity and being you derive your power. The Sim sign element also shows what is real to the individual, for it is the unconscious assumption of what is particularly real and what isn't that determines how the person will focus his energy. As an example, the air signs live in the abstract realm of thought, and a thought for them is just as real (indeed more real, as evidenced from their behavior) as any material object. The water signs live in their feelings, and it is their emotional state that determines their behavior more than anything else. The fire signs live in a state of highly excited, inspired activity and maintaining that state of being is crucial for the fire signs to stay healthy and happy. The earth signs are grounded in the material world. The material world and its...

The other four great goddesses of Graeco-Roman mythology Demeter (Ceres), Athene (Pallas), Hera (Juno), and Hestia (Vesta) were missing from astrology until they were reinvoked by their discovery in the early 1800s.
The collective unconscious is the vast depths of the unfathomed ocean. It is the substratum from which our consciousness emerges. It cannot be defined because we have no knowledge of its boundaries or its true nature. All people share the same basic mental contents, and this is why Jung calls it the collective unconscious. As the physical qualities of humans evolved from lower to higher forms of being, so also did the brain, especially that which we call the psyche. The development of the primitive psyche is something that we are all heirs to, and within this dimension are held the common objects that the evolving human mind shares from the dim and distant past. The contents of the collective unconscious are sometimes called primordial images, but they are more generally known as Archetypes. Jung believed they formed during the thousands of years that human consciousness was emerging from, or evolving out of, the animal state. The Archetypes have an enormous impact on the individual...
The Sun symbolizes the cosmic intelligence, pure consciousness or the enlightened Mind. The ancient solar religion was the religion of Divine life and of enlightenment. In much of his worship no images of the God were used. He was lauded in the sunlight, the sunlit path of clear awareness (images or forms, however, were used more commonly in the worship of the Goddess who was the Earth or the Moon). The winged disc of the Sun was used throughout the ancient world to symbolize the soul and its inherent perfection and transcendence of time. The Sun was sometimes worshipped in human representation as the cosmic man, often made of gold, representing the true Man who contains within himself all the Gods.
Nature is characterized by patience, discipline, determination, practicality and adherence to principles. You approach life with a matter-of-fact attitude. You may lack spontaneity but are willing to work hard for success. Big business, politics and the arts are fields that appeal to you. Thrifty, you acquire material goods for their useful qualities. Your stamina is great, and so is your stubbornness. You are possessive of your loved ones. You will only find inner peace when your sense of values becomes more evolved or when you learn to use your creative potential. Challenging aspects may lead to miserliness, excessive materialism or lack of response to love and beauty.
Although people with eighth house emphasis may seek security in material values, power, sex, or psychic knowledge, a real feeling of emotional and soul security can only exist when the tumultuous emotional conflicts always symbolized by this house begin to subside. The occult studies associated with this house are primarily useful as a means of attaining inner peace through knowledge of the deepest laws of life. The sexuality of the eighth house is an expression of the urge to be reborn through
For example, if the Moon is in an air sign, one will have to express one's thoughts to others in order to feel right about oneself and in order to feel an inner peace and tranquility coming from the satisfaction of that subconscious need. Likewise, one will adjust oneself to life by first gaining detachment on any experience in an effort to evaluate objectively whatever is at hand. In other words, one with the Moon in an air sign always reacts by thinking first, and then acting according to the dictates of his evaluation. This quality of forethought is usually quite absent in people who have the Moon in water or fire signs, although it is present in those whose Moon is in earth signs.
There may be some new awareness of great importance which supports the development of faith and inner peace. Sometimes, the new understandings have a profound effect on the entire life, although it's likely to take time for the changes to develop. Looking back, it may be possible to pinpoint an 11 Essence as a time of a major shift in the life.

The last part of 1993, from about the middle of May to the end of December, will probably feel somewhat different than the first part of the year. There's probably less drama now, and while the emotions may still be running high, you're apt to be somewhat more sensitive and able to handle the feelings better (9 Essence to May 11 11 2 Essence after). From this time up to your 54th birthday, you may receive some new awareness of great importance which will support the development of faith and inner peace. This new understanding may have a profound effect on the entire life, although it's likely to take time for the changes to develop 11 Essence and preparation for coming years). You're probably more understanding now of the kind of spiritual or non-material awareness I'm talking about, but, unless you've developed this side of
