What is Truth? Jupiter in Aries

Positive Jupiter in Aries: Faith in yourself, your truth, your actions. Negative Jupiter in Aries: Fear that supports the belief that only your truth is real. Who is to say which is right and which is wrong? Stand up for what you believe. If it feels right, then it is.

Jupiter holds the holy grail containing the alchemical ingredients of diversity, honesty and faith. Mix in the passion and assertiveness of Aries and this brew comes to full boil.

Jupiter entered territorial, warrior Aries on 1/22/11.  Passionate truth boils to the surface. Ask yourself if you want to act or react? There are more than 6.8 billion people living on earth, and swords are clashing–verbally, mentally, philosophically, physically.

But what is truth? It is in the eye of the beholder. Most wars are begun due to philosophical differences. Wake up in San Francisco, and two people of the same sex slow-dancing together won’t get a second glance. Place that same couple in Houston, and there might be trouble.

Can you take a stand without bloodletting? Can you imagine a peaceful outcome without giving up your position–and letting someone else having theirs? Mahatma Gandhi said, “Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.”

So is it really no pain, no gain? Or can you take a step backward, hold your tongue, loosen your fist, look your “enemy” in the eye and see their humanness? This is how war is won. How peace is made. And how, in these volatile and uncertain times, you can stand on opposite sides of the same fence and, even if you disagree, allow. Take this stance and you find freedom.

Evolutionary Astrology Classes January & March in San Francisco, CA

Evolutionary Astrology offers another profound layer of information that is unique to this system. I offer what I know to you from direct study with Steven Forrest since 1998. I teach beginning and intermediate classes, which are 8 consecutive weeks in an intimate group of no more than 8 students. The work is experiential, practical and eye-opening. It can help you prepare you to be a professional Evolutionary Astrologer and will fine-tune what you know (or what you will learn) in order to attend a Steven Forrest Apprenticeship Program http://www.gossamerrings.com California’s wine country, Calistoga, California.

Teleclasses are scheduled to begin on specific topics in late spring. Please stay tuned for more information.

Intermediate classes begin on Saturday, January 9th, 2010. One of my continuing students had to move right before class began (she had a final hit of Uranus to her IC or Nadir), so there’s room for one more person (is it you?). If you can’t make the first class and need to come in late–for example, by the second class–I will record the session for you so that you don’t lose any of the teaching.

Beginning classes start on Wednesday, March 17 from 6:30-9:00 PM for eight weekly meetings, ending on 5/5/10. You need no prior astrological knowledge, but it does help to come with curiosity and commitment.
