The Cookie Crumbles
Saturn is in the last few weeks of its journey through Virgo that began in September of 2007. (It will return to Virgo again briefly in April –July of 2010.) Saturn comes through a sign only once every 28 years. The last two years have required selfless impeccable assessment and diligence to accomplish something of service. We have all been learning about trimming our aspirations down to manageable tasks and practical application. We have grappled with the difference between worry and thoughtful preparation.
If September brings a confounding or seemingly impossible situation, tend to yourself in the short run. Discomfort is usually a signal for advancement. When familiar solutions don’t fit, we learn about humility. Remember that in the long run the world is improving and we have to set aside our personal dramas. That spiritual center you have been developing for years will never desert you. Let it guide you toward your best contribution to the common good. We are moving toward freedom and comfort for all of Humanity and Mother Nature.0
Saturn and Uranus interfaced in the year 2000. At that time 2 movies directed by Steven Sodebergh won awards. Both were about sincere individuals discovering and fighting a large corrupt system. In Erin Brockovich a feisty irreverent secretary uses detailed research to win a lawsuit against Pacific Gas and Electric, but the reward will never replace the lives and health lost because of environmental poisoning. In Traffic the massive effects of the drug trafficking system cause the characters dilemmas between ethics and survival. You may be juggling an ironic situation this month. If may be hard to make up your mind about something. Strive for balance and cooperation.
Mercury Retrograde September 7- 29
Use this retrograde period to clean up and bring to resolution any little undone details that have been sapping your energy. Clear the decks so that you can make quick efficient responses to new situations later this Fall. Arrange conversations you have been meaning to address, clear files and organize data, and complete tasks that you never got around to. You can make preparations, but save initiation of important new activities for later in October. I saw a squirrel resting on my patio as I wrote this article. Virgo energy is like a busy squirrel preparing for winter. We have been doing that for 2 years. Take some time in the retrograde to hang out, integrate what you have worked on, reflect on your accomplishments and acknowledge yourself..
Beginning Level Experiential Astrology Class will begin on Tuesday September 29, and run for 7 weeks. We will use music, movement, and role-play as an adjunct to lecture for learning the nature of the Signs, Planets and chart structure. There will be some brief, fun reading assignments. We will study the charts of fellow class members and close people in your life. Call for details. 512-291-8299

We will take a whole day to go deeply into dream- time. We will have individual sharing with feedback from the group, and also some experiential exercises for working with night dreams you have journaled.
I will help to integrate the messages from your psyche with your current Astrological influences. Each person’s wisdom is honored and power is fostered. All you need to bring is a record or memory of a few dreams. No experience with dream-work or astrology is necessary. Call 291-8299 for details
