Clarity, Purpose and Peaceful Resolution with Astrology
Interpreting astrological cycles
and their influence on our lives and the world can be a complex
process. This is especially true during challenging times,
when we as humans tend to focus on reacting to problems and
placing blame before looking to understand the greater context
and significance of the events which appear to shape our lives.
Astrology provides tools to help us make choices that are
more informed, more conscious, and ultimately, more evolved.
It is up to us to ask the bigger questions about the lessons
rather than accepting our difficulties as blind and random
In this talk we will discuss the astrological 'landscape'
for 2002 on both a personal and collective level. We will
clarify the surface themes as well as the hidden messages
within the planetary archetypes. For example, the current
planetary cycle of Saturn opposing Pluto acts as a symbolic
catalyst to help us look at issues of fear and power in order
to better understand the recent events of 2001 and to prepare
for the year ahead. We will also look at the historical context
for the Saturn/Pluto cycle and the process of stagnation,
destruction and reconstruction currently affecting many of
the foundations of our lives. The potential now exists to
creatively resolve conflicts.
The flexibility of our perceptions when looking at that which
we could not, or would not see before is the key to rebuilding
trust, faith and courage in 2002 and beyond.
