The Astrology of 2024 & Beyond
“The Aquarian Age, We Are The Seed People”

2024 is a year of personal and global awakening. As a collective we have had enough time to process the experiences of the last 4 years and know our Hearts. A glimmer of the much talked about Aquarian Energy is here. But where exactly? Within each our Hearts. We are the seed people of this new dawning of consciousness. We will look at both the Harmonic and Disharmonic ways that could express on all levels.This is further illuminated as Pluto makes a permanent ingress into Aquarius until 2044– though there is one last short retrograde into Capricorn from September to November. This is a huge energetic shift and a major passage of time on the cosmic and Karmic Clock. We’ll look at what this may mean for our Planet.Jupiter and Uranus will have an expansive conjunction in Taurus during April, sending waves through the whole Planetary body, heart and mind.

In May, Jupiter enters Gemini, the sign of Technology and Messages from the Unconsciousness. It’s the first time since 2012, when the Mayan Calendar marked the initiation into a New Age of Being. The Mayan’s spoke much about the passage and quality of time from 2012-2025 ~we’ll have a look at this too.

The Karmic Nodes of Fate will hold steady in Aries & Libra giving us time to heal old relationships and cultivate a new way with the Masculine. This is supported at an Aries North Node Conjunction with Chiron in February- Opening Our Hearts.

We will also experience 4 Eclipses (April/May & Sep/Oct), 3 Mercury Retrogrades– though the year starts on the last day of a 2023 retrograde’s ending. And, we will be stepping into the year of the Wood Dragon on Feb 10. The Dragon is related to Aquarius and the Planet Uranus. So this will give an extra boost to the Spiritual Awakening and Evolution that Age of Aquarius is starting. Jai Ma!

The planet Uranus will be delivering lightning bolt calls to awaken. For those on the path our job will be to stand in our illumination and use our own path of our Soul’s Purpose to help others awaken too. Let this be a year of illumination.

Learn about greater cycles of time that are now unfolding that are referenced by the Greeks, The Yogis, The Mayans, and the Lakota. We’ll also cover the quantum physics and evolutionary states of consciousness and how these transitional events will play out for each. We will share tools and practices that may be helpful to navigate these unfolding energies and times. And, we we will look at the astrology of 2024 through 2025 and beyond.


We talk and present the workshop in common language. There is no need for any prior knowledge of astrology to attend. All are welcome to watch 🙂

“Work Hard, Be True, Keep The Faith…”

May 23 – June 21 ~ The Cosmic Download

“Work Hard, Be True, Keep The Faith”

In Astrology and in Life, opposite energies balance each other. Yin/ Yang. Masculine/Feminine. Day/Night. Sun/Moon. Physical/Spiritual. Sagittarius/Gemini. Every astrological energy is on an Axis and those two opposing energies complete and balance each other. This month begins with the Sagittarius Full Mon on May 23, and highlights the Sagittarius/Gemini Axis of energy. In the same way that there not Yin without Yang, there is not Sagittarius without Gemini. Both energies illuminate the axis of Wisdom, Knowledge, Learning, Philosophy, Truth and Trust. Both energies have do with journeying, investigating, and being open to expand, quest and learn. Both energies show up an highlight the mantra of this moon cycle which is “Work Hard, Be True, Keep The Faith” 

That same day of the full moon, Venus moves into Gemini. Both Gemini and Sagittarius are archetypes that can help teach us and open us to find our spiritual heart. Gemini does this through the mind, learning, and contrast. Sagittarius does this through wisdom, nature and the heart. Both seek to transcend the duality and find a deeper knowing of the heart. Venus is our Values and here she is exploring them the physical and spiritual. Learn to walk in both worlds with balance.

On May 25, Jupiter goes into Gemini. Jupiter moves signs once a year, and has not been in Gemini since 2012. This is a completion and start of a new cycle- or a Jupiter Return which happens once every 12 years in a particular sign. Remember back to 2012 and have a look at what was going on in your life, your beliefs, your cosmic awareness and have a check-in to where you are now. This is an opportunity to put closure to a long journey and embark on the next evolution. How are you doing at walking in both worlds of spirit & science, personal & transcendental, mundane & spiritual? What have you learned? This is a question more of wisdom than of fact or intellect…

On June 3, Mercury goes goes into Gemini as well. Gemini is one of Mercury’s home signs and correspondences along with Virgo. Here, Mercury is in familiar territory. This can be a time of hard work, truth, and moving into the Higher Mind – The Cosmic mind or intuition. The hard work piece does not have to be challenging. It can be inspired, enthusiastic, and fulfilling. The hard work can be stepping into your Soul Purpose & Dharma by working hard each day to express that gift. It may feel less like work and more like being in the rhythm and synchronicity of life- like a bee working for the hive. It is. It is the Way. It feels right. Put your efforts towards fulfilling you Life Purpose and your hard work will lead you towards the true heart.

June 6 is the Gemini New moon. New moons are new cycles. Much like a gardener planting a seed, more tending and attention is needed to nurture a seed and bring it into fruition in the beginning phase. So, this is a time of working to grow your true nature and self. Have a vision and have faith that it will grow. We can’t see what is happening underground, but we need to keep doing the work and have faith that the seed will sprout, root and brake the soil with new growth in due time.

Mars enters Taurus on June 8. Mars is the Will Power to initiate, start, and begin a new process or project. Taurus is the energy to stay focused, sustain, and persist with that effort. Both energies are needed to bring your Dharma to life and grow it.

From June 8-20, there are a series of squares between the personal planets and Pluto (The Soul), Saturn (Karma & Dharma) and Neptune (Spirit). Squares are cosmic check-ins, challenges, and dynamic shifts. Are you doing what your Soul has intended you to do? Pay attention to challenges at this time as opportunities to evolve and grow. The medicine for your path at this time is to”Work Hard, Be True, and Keep The Faith”

On June 16, Venus enters Cancer. Venus in Cancer is feeling your feels. Laugh, Cry, Smile, Express, Love. In balance, this is having self-love and an awareness of Self. Out of balance it is too much, extremes, mylar, victim, stuck in an emotion, temper tantrums, or hiding away from the world. Know yourself, be true and keep your faith in something higher than your personal self. Trust the body and follow your Soul.

June 20 is the Summer Solstice and when the Sun moves into Cancer. This is the apex of they solar light, and in contrast, it is the start of the cycle towards the Fall Equinox. Summer is the full expression of the Light, Self, Truth, Heart, Faith and Good Works. Let your heart light shine through your Soul’s Purpose in action. Let your daily work be in service to your Higher Purpose and let this fulfill, sustain and nurture you. It can also guide towards your true north and build your faith in something greater.

The Capricorn Full Moon is June 21. Until then, “Work Hard, Be True, Keep The Faith”
