Soul Astrology is the astrology of our inner world. It is the astrology of expanded perception, intuition and consciousness. I am reminded of great astrologers like Pythagoras who could hear the music of the spheres, and the great Kalachakra Masters who, while in dark meditation in a cave, could tell what was happening astrologically by subtle shifts within their own bodies. As above, so below. Literally. As we enter the Age of Aquarius, at this early stage in our spiritual development, we are being called upon to greatly expand our consciousness and intuition so we can know for ourselves what is going on. … More 12:12 2012 Is This The Great Shift of Ages and The Dawning of The Age of Aquarius?
Under the guardianship of Jupiter, Sagittarius resonates with the highest truth of our spiritual nature but before this is realized, the Sagittarian personality has to let go of all mental conceptions that are mistaken as truth. Sooner or later the Sagittarian personality realizes that his beloved mental concepts actually obscure his perception of truth. … More Jupiter, Earth, and The Inner Journey of Sagittarius
In terms of the Soul’s journey through the Zodiac, Sagittarius has been described as a ‘chrysalis’ stage1. Once a caterpillar turns into a chrysalis, everything inside dissolves into fluid, and is reconstructed into a butterfly. Contrary to popular myth this is not a ‘latent’ phase of development but indeed a very clear, powerful and active stage. After all is broken down and turned to fluid in Scorpio, the “three aspects of Divinity”1 become visible, and the way forward is known. … More Sagittarius-Gemini: Silence… and the Love of Wisdom (Part 2).
The true Mastery that is required of Sagittarius is to turn his attention inwards and master his own thoughts, words and deeds. Symbolized by the Archer, or Hunter, it is quite typical of Sagittarian energy to latch onto one goal, purpose, or idea, and get totally lost down the rabbit hole, tracking down his target while being blinded to all that is around him. By accessing the diffuse, eclectic, energy of his opposite sign Gemini, Sagittarius learns to lift his head above the parapet and consider all the options, be less one-sided and become aware of the multi-dimensional facets of Life. By going within, and realizing the multi-dimensional aspect of his true nature, Sagittarius eventually learns to discern truth from opinion, and finds that which he is seeking: true love-wisdom. … More Sagittarius-Gemini: Silence… and the Love of Wisdom (Part 1).
If you have Sun, Moon, or Ascendant in Gemini, the challenge for you is to experience your Self beyond your thoughts. There is literally more to you than what you think! This world is very distracting for a Gemini, and it is all too easy for you to get lost in trivia, missing the magnificence of your inner being. With the sustained focus of Sagittarius, you are capable of traveling beyond your thoughts into multiple inner dimensions to the very depths of your Soul. … More Gemini-Sagittarius: The Sacred Marriage of Love and Wisdom (Part 2)
At the level of our lower mind, it is the influence of Mercury that creates polarities, by focusing on our differences and creating the illusion of separation. At one stage of our development this is a necessary precursor to the process of individuation – development of the individual. If it were not for our ability to separate for example, we’d never cut the umbilical cord and stride out on our own, separate from our mothers! … More Gemini-Sagittarius: The Sacred Marriage of Love and Wisdom (Part 1)
As we begin our Conscious Journey within, to seek our very Soul, the first terrain to navigate is the path of the heart. Cancer brings feeling. When we attune to the energies of Cancer we feel mass consciousness. Our capacity for sensing, for intuition, begins to awaken. We start to feel. We feel our connectedness, we feel our own wounds, and those of others. Eventually this brings empathy, and huge compassion.
Have you ever wondered why the Divine Intelligence (or Angel) of Sagittarius is symbolized by an Archer? The power of Sagittarius supports us in identifying the goal: aiming our arrow at the target, and directing our energies with precision to ensure we don’t miss. If you have ever tried to use a longbow (the traditional ‘bow and arrow’) you will realize the skill, strength, focused attention, precision and practice that is required to ensure the arrows consistently meet the target. … More Total Eclipse of the Full Moon and Summer Solstice 2011: Are You Ready?

On a Soul level the polarities take on a new meaning. They speak more of a journey…. as the Tibetan says (through Alice Bailey in “The Labours of Hercules: An Astrological Interpretation”) “what begins in Aries is resolved in Libra” .. so this speaks to evolution, development, and a journey upon which we acquire skills and knowledge for our Soul’s growth.
“We may break a piece of magnetized steel as often as we like, we shall never be able to separate the positive from the negative pole; each fragment will always have both. This shows that polarity is an aspect of unity, not an arbitrary duality but an inseparable whole” … More The 6 Energy Polarities of the Zodiac
