I am pleased to be writing an educational products article for publication in TMA. If you produce an astrological DVD or CD, or an astrological course or webinar series that people can take from their homes, send the information to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please describe your product briefly and provide your name/address/phone and web site URL. I look forward to seeing your product and considering it for inclusion in the article, which will appear in the Oct/Nov issue of TMA. Please contact me in the next week or two. With Mercury about to go retrograde, I want to have plenty of time to thoroughly appreciate your materials! Thank you.
And, here are some timely written and spoken blogs for this first week in June. Have a good week, everyone.
Evolutionary astrologer Rose Marcus at AstroLink has a June Overview, along with specifics for each sign. She is particularly keen on the significance of Ceres’ direct station in Libra on June 1 (having been retrograde since February 27). “No doubt you have been working your way through a significant relationship issue, whether that’s with another or yourself. Perhaps the karmic implication or recall has not been lost on you. Ceres is a regenerative influence that is quite similar to Pluto. She requires a journey to the dark side in order to be reborn into the light. Ceres confronts and resurrects in order to reclaim. This Ceres transit is one of the reasons that you may have felt so triggered or done-in by experiences that might otherwise have gone by with less notice, less reaction; that you might have taken in better stride.”
Andrew Smith’s entry, Mercury Retrogrades from Cancer into Gemini, at C*I*A, gives a clear description of the mechanics of the planet’s cycle and explains “what is actually taking place in consciousness during a retrograde period, so that you can understand what process is invoked during a Mercury Retrograde cycle.”
Michele Finey has another article at C*I*A, June 2014 Solstice and Lunation Reports. About the chart for the Cancer Ingress, she writes: “Uranus, Moon and South Node together suggest the potential for wild over-reactions that hark back to some past experience. Since this is a Solstice chart, the effects are likely to reverberate for several months…..We might expect some primal reactions to erupt from the unconscious. Other people might overreact to what we are saying or doing. Equally, we may find that we suddenly become angered, emotional, or behave in unpredictable ways when a painful memory resurfaces.”
David Cammegh, (Divine Order, not New World Order), has links to videos (about 15 minutes) for each sign. He’s upbeat and philosophically-minded and does a nice job of delineating June’s transits for each solar sign.
Here’s Carl Boudreau’s 29-minute video on The Astrology of June 2014 – Relationship Skakeups. He shows lots of charts and quite detailed analysis. “We will all be more respectful of boundaries and expectations and we will expect others to do the same. This radical attitude shift, multiplied 7 billion times, will bring wave upon wave of change.”
Tracy Atkinson is a Vedic astrologer, thus her entry on Jupiter speaks to that planet’s move into (sidereal) Cancer on June 18. “As you may remember from some of my past blogs, Jupiter is named Brihaspati and is the teacher or guru to the gods. In the mythology of Jupiter he instructed and protected the gods, and taught them how to get their share of the soma or divine nectar by using mantras to drive away their enemies, the demons or asuras. From this, we can see that mantra is one of the prime tools for conquering our personal demons and creating a state of peace.”
