The Weekly AstroFix

7 Comments

eclipse-doorHappy magical Friday, or maybe it’s Saturday where you are in the world 😉 . We made it through this eclipse week. Congratulations everyone!

For me, there was a pivotal change in my work environment. Stress and tension that had been building up for the past year (peaking in September) finally released. I can’t believe how much lighter I feel within just a few days of this eclipse.

The Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces on March 8/9 occurred in my seventh house. The seventh house typically is not associated with work, but in this case the situation involved someone I worked with side by side as a team, every day for forty hours a week, for three years … which is very much like a seventh house relationship. There is a reason people develop a work spouse at work …a lot of us end up seeing our coworkers more than we do our real partners.

Like many seventh house relationships, this one turned us into frenemies, and then open enemies, and then this week we got separated … Hooray!

Here’s everything I listened to this week:

Podcasts

The Mythology Podcast

  • Raven: So good. Raven is a trickster and a creator. In the myths recounted in the podcast, it’s usually Raven’s excrement that creates. The myths remind me of the transformative powers of Pluto – to take the shit of life and transform into something creatively powerful.
  • Santa Muerte: The female Grim Reaper. Where she comes from, why people love her, and why she’s gaining popularity.
  • Year of the Monkey: Monkeys. Cunning, destructive … the mascots of our new Chinese year.

This week’s podcasts. Quick insights into the daily planets.

Access Astrology


Access Astrology March 9, 2016: About the eclipse and its impact.

Speaking of Jung

  • Episode # 10: Fred Gustafson: So, so interesting. Laura London (the host) interviews Jungian Analyst Fred Gustafson about his perspective on the Black Madonna. They talk about the dark feminine, Kali, and how it all ties back to the Earth herself. If you’re interested in Black Moon Lilith, this is worth a listen.
  • Episode #11: Laura London: Laura (the host) gets interviewed as a guest on her own podcast. If you like Carl Jung you may be fascinated as I was to hear about Laura’s trip to Zurich to visit Jung’s home … it was an ordeal to get there and her experience was not what she expected.


Ask Allie: New (Super) Moon/Solar Eclipse
: I like Allie. This episode is more like a glimpse into someone’s life than solid astrology advice, but I still enjoyed listening.

The Pluto School

Everything currently on the podcast page. Some of the talks I had listened to several months ago. Unfortunately the podcast on planetary nodes gets cut off at about 35 minutes. In Podcast – Evolutionary Astrology Conference 2013 , for a few minutes Mark talks about how the different Pluto generations have impacted each other through music … this topic could be an entire podcast in itself.

Videos

The School of Evolutionary Herbalism

Therapeutics for the Respiratory System: So, this particular episode does not talk about astrology; but, if you visit the link above and glance to the right side of the main page, you will see a list of videos including a bunch that directly address the connection between astrology and herbalism. Such fascinating stuff. I started the video about Spagyrics but I won’t write about it till I finish it next week.

Lectures

Steven Forrest Astrology

  • Planets Square the Nodes MP3: Steven talks about orbs, delineation, nodal rulers, and more.
  • Planets Conjunct the South Node MP3: Ditto!

    We don’t know each other personally, yet as a fellow Moon in Leo (with an Aries Ascendant) your approach to astrology, writing style, as well as your literacy biography reminds me in many ways myself. I dare say that I’m very choosy when it comes to reading what others write and I find your blog articles particularly engaging and also inspiring. For this reason, I would like to nominate you for the Blogger Recognition Award.

    I have posted a link on my blog to your blog:

    thanks Michelle, love the Virgo traits!

    Michelle, did you study all of that just this week?! Sounds so interesting. I love Mark Jones’ stuff. I wish I could get some info on planets conjunct the North Node – I see the stuff by Mark Jones and Steven Forrest on planets with the South Node or square the Nodes, but nothing on the NN conjunct. Do you know of anything that talks about that?

  • LB

    Wow, sorry for the hard-to-read paragraphs without spaces between them. Obviously I don’t have the hang of it yet, maybe I’ll get lucky this time.
    I forgot to say Matthew Fox also has an article online, “The Return of the Black Madonna: A Sign of Our Times or How the Black Madonna Is Shaking Us Up for the Twenty-First Century”.

    • Thank you for sharing the article. I’m not familiar with the Black Madonna; it’s interesting to see that he wrote the same things about her representing the earth. I like Kali as the Earth – creator and destroyer.

    Hi Michelle ~ Love your new feature and appreciate the links. So far I’ve listened to the “Speaking of Jung” Laura London interview with Fred Gustafson about the Black Madonna/Dark Feminine. I’m going to special-request his book from the library. I’m reading a bunch of different Jungian authors right now and have been for the past year or so, ever since my North Node Return. Transiting BM Lilith (Mean) was conjunct my NN as I listened to the podcast tonight.
    I’ve been looking for an artistic representation of the Black Virgin for a while now without any luck. Think I’ll probably end up creating one myself. Don’t know if you remember or not (and why would you?), but my natal 8H Lilith (Mean) is exactly opposite my Sun, which means she’s conjunct Earth in my chart.
    Thanks, Michelle. Always good to read your posts.:)

    • Nice to see you around LB. I did not remember your BML placement. It’s interesting because my BML (mean) is in the 8th conjunct my Sun.
