New Moon in Sidereal Scorpio, November 29, 2016

As mentioned at the last full moon, this will be my final blog entry. This journey began with a new moon, and appropriately ends on one. I have come to the end of this mode of exploration and sharing. I can’t even begin to articulate the deep healing and profound transformation the inquirey into the Great Year, Goddess Consciousness and the implementation of it’s wisdom and tools has brought to me. When I look back over the last two and a half years, I am staggered.  Continue reading

November Full Moon 2016

The Full Moon is exact at 8:52 am EST and is 28º 32′ Sidereal Aries in the 6th house.

If you will recall in the last new moon article, the Uranus/Eris/Pluto aspects prompted me to say there may be some surprising changes in store for us all, but that they might not necessarily be negative (my unfortunate qualifier). The sidereal stars were absolutely correct, and none of the  astrologers I read, psychics, or political polls, were coming anywhere near close to predicting the outcome of the US election correctly. Just remember: the scum has to come to the surface before it can be skimmed off and then beautiful clarity is revealed afterwards. Cold comfort, but nonetheless this keeps me going……

I had come to the decision a couple of weeks ago, through guidance in meditation, that I would be leaving the blog at the end of the year. As I enter the third cycle of the Goddess Consciousness and Great Year spiral, I am recommitting to my personal inner practice and am scaling back in certain areas.

However, I am prompted by recent events to open up a very small number of one-year apprenticeships in working with Goddess Consciousness and the Great Year material. The applicant will be an awakening woman who is interested in the symbolic languages of dreams, archetypes, myth and astrology; she knows she is ready to deepen her experience of Self and has a deep knowing that what we have been sold as historical fact is not true; she questions anything patriarchal and is dedicated to uncovering her inner patriarchal programming so that the outer may one day fall. Cycles of Healing has always been a spiritual mystery school in purpose and practice. Contact me if you are interested, and I will send you further information. Serious inquiries only, please.

For those of you curious, but who cannot commit to an apprenticeship, I have set up a  self-study guide using the articles of Cycles of Healing. You will find it under the drop-down menu of “About Cycles of Healing” here.  (Everything on this site is © Zuzanna Vee. Please respect this.). This work is powerful and takes dedicated discipline. Like all things, one gets out of it proportionately what one puts in.

You can view all 12 paintings as a visual cycle of the Great Year here. They are the paintings that accompanied each of the Great Age articles (2015) in the first spiral.

I will still be offering western sidereal astrological counseling, tarot, and sacred totem portraiture. My outer work continues too.

Good luck wherever you are in the years ahead. This is a time that I never wanted my grandchildren to have to live through, but there you are. We all make many choices on many different levels of existence. We are here to act with love no matter what is befalling us. Our response to personal and collective stress is all important. We will be getting plenty of practice to put our spiritual values to the test and to make course corrections accordingly.

Therefore, the next new moon on November 29th will be my last post and I will be looking at the new moon chart. As always, thank you for reading, ‘liking’, commenting and sharing. It is much appreciated. Blessings, love and bon chance until then.

New Moon in Sidereal Libra October 30, 2016

We have now completed the first spiral of Cycles of Healing (32 articles), laying the groundwork for linking the new moon with the Great Year Ages and all that involves. This second spiral will look at the new and full moon charts. If you are new to Western Sidereal Astrology, please read this articleI am using charts drawn up for Washington, D.C. and use sidereal whole sign houses. If you want to know how to use Cycles of Healing with each new moon for deep healing, read this article.

The forecast, as always, will affect individuals with natal planets or points in aspect to the planets and points covered below. To determine if these aspects will affect you personally, check your sidereal natal chart (the common tropical chart degrees will be way off and therefore useless – not apples to apples). To calculate your sidereal degrees, subtract 24° from your tropical degrees; this will be close, not exact. Sidereal astrology is where the planets actually are if you take the time to look up at the constellations of night sky.

The new moon is exact at 12:38 EDT at 13° 38’ Libra 10th house. Conjunct the sun (of course) and Mercury at 15° 35’. We are feeling our vitality strongly now and it operates in the area of our public personae be that career or generally how the world sees us and our deeds. Our minds will be sharp and our need to communicate in this area will be felt and probably exercised. Continue reading

Full Moon in Sidereal Pisces October 16, 2016

I am writing this during the electrical outage of Hurricane Matthew in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Saturday October 8th. I have 90% power remaining on my laptop’s aging battery, so I’ll see how far I get. It’s hardly an inconvenience – Haiti had 900 deaths from this storm. May all beings find shelter, warmth, food, good water, and appropriate care.

The full moon in 9th house Pisces at 29° 09’ is exact at 12:23 am. It is conjunct retrograde Uranus at 28° 23’ Pisces which is also conjunct dwarf planet Eris. This full moon may blow the top off everything we thought was sure and a safe bet. Its time to implement our spiritual freedom, for that is the only true freedom. This will mean something different to different people. It has to do with knowing who we are and stepping into that as spiritual beings. This full moon ushers in a time of sudden shifts in our personal emotions and feelings; and similar effects collectively.  Continue reading

Musings on Dreams and Dreaming

“Tyger Tyger burning bright…” watercolor on paper; approx 15 x 20; by Zuzanna Vee

[Dreaming] is no mean art: for its sake one must stay awake all day. ~Friedrich Nietzsche

I was looking for a quote about dreams to start this article off. The only ones I found with the search word ‘dream’ in it were about accomplishing goals. I think that says a lot about how much we don’t value sleeping dreams. I settled on the quote by Nietzshe and substituted ‘dreaming’ for his word ‘sleeping’.

I have been noticing and recording my dreams since I was 10 years old. It began with a recurring dream that was very uplifting and left me horribly sad on walking, discovering I was back in my ‘other’ life. This event began my conscious investigations and ruminations that dreams meant something more than an entertaining interlude between waking and waking. As our everyday ordinary reality is important in that our interactions in the world directly affect and reflect our developing maturity and ultimately our emerging spirit, I felt our dream lives must be important too.

The Age of Scorpio (20,000 – 17,500 BCE) finds our consciousness reaching ever upward, longing for the Divine, as the claws of the constellation of Scorpio reach up toward Libra, anticipating a long awaited Golden Age of unprecedented ease, peace and harmony. It is a time of sweetness when life is not quite perfect, but optimism is so high, joy and love so fierce that most always the correct path is inevitably known and taken. Continue reading
