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 🙂

“What Isn’t God?”
The astrology wheel is an amazing multi-layered tool. It represents the Wheel Of The Year, which includes the Four Seasons and the 12 Astrological Months. If you look at astrology through this lens, then it is a direct reflection of mother nature. It is simple. And it is user-friendly. This is the intuitive, feminine and natural way to approach astrology. Simply observe the seasons and what the energy is like during each astrological month to know how to interpret that energy. Here is an example… Pisces is the 12th astrological month of the year and the very last month of winter. Go outside and use your five senses and the reflective nature of your mind and heart to take in the energy of this season and time. Then you will intuitively understand what Pisces energy is. It is the very last part of a cycle and is in the season of death, quietude and it is also pregnant just before the start of Spring. Pisces is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end, and the death and the rebirth. There is something transcendent, mystical, meditative, and imaginative about this time.
Opposite of Pisces on the Wheel Of The Year is the astrological month of Virgo, which is the last month of summer. Virgo and Pisces are on an axis and share- at their core- the same energy. One side of the wheel is expressing in winter and the other side of the wheel is expressing in summer. And while they may appear to be opposites, they are compliments and complete each other.
This is true of all astrological signs and their opposite energy, such as Sagittarius & Gemini, Taurus & Scorpio, and Cancer & Capricorn for example. For Virgo and Pisces, the unity between the two of them is the ability to see God in everything and to be of service to all beings -when in balance. Virgo does this through the microcosm and the material world, and Pisces does this through the macrocosm and the spiritual world. Virgo can see God inside of an atom and in the grain of sand, while Pisces can know God through the cosmic infinite and the mystical beyond- the stars, the galaxy and the unified field. Both will arrive at the same inner knowing- one from above and one from below. So our mantra for the energy of this time relates to the Virgo/Pisces axis and is a Ram Dass quote,” What isn’t God?”
This cycle begins with a Virgo Full Moon and is joined by Venus Square Jupiter on February 24. The Virgo full moon is inviting us to open our hearts and see God or Spirit in the details of life and where we can be of service to each other. Venus points to our values and self-love, and when she is squared to Jupiter it is questioning if we are in alignment with our Soul purpose. Are your values in alignment with the values of the Divine?
On Feb 27, Mars follow suit and squares Jupiter. This time the question is asked if our will-power and desires are in alignment with our soul purpose? Are you listening to your heart and intuition?
Saturn, Sun and Mercury all conjunct in Pisces on Feb 28. The wise Elder is checking in with our personal-self and our communicator to see if we are ready to embrace loving everybody. Who isn’t God? Namaste.
Venus and Mars then Square, Uranus on Mar 3 & 9. This one is a little more electric and something may be revealed from the unconscious or Soul realm. The same questions are being asked but with a little more potency.
Mercury conjuncts Neptune in Pisces on Mar 8. This is the time for communication and the thinking mind to consider the Divine, Mother Nature, and one’s spiritual path. “What isn’t God?”
The Pisces New Moon is Mar 10 and seeds a new cycle around that Pisces, cosmic energy. This may be a time to go into the heart and contemplate if one’s own will is an alignment with the greater will. Which, is what the yogis say everybody’s Soul purpose is- to align the personal to the Divine.
Sun conjuncts Neptune on Mar 17, while the Moon is in Cancer. This is also St. Patrick’s Day. There is a lot of watery emotions, sensitivity and possibility for the cosmic mind to open this day. Just beware of Green Beer.
Mar 19 is the Spring Equinox and the start of the astrological month of Aries for the Sun. This is a significant turning on the Wheel Of The Year and a time of new beginnings and rebirth
Venus conjuncts Saturn and is joined by Mars as he enters into Pisces on Mar 21 & 22. Saturn is the wise elder checking in to see if our values and desires are now in harmony with Spiritual Law and Universal Principal.
Mar 25 starts eclipse season with a Libra Full Moon penumbra eclipse. The second eclipse will be April 8 and is a total solar eclipse across the eastern and southern United States. This will be the last total solar eclipse over the US until the year 2045. This will be a big one. See you next full moon and remember “What isn’t God?”
