Learn About Your Vedic Moon!

moon_phases_by_lisamacnewton-d4u5dpo

I’ve decided to start teaching Vedic Astrology, at first, from the perspective of The Moon.

If you’re a novice, this is a great way to start seeing and understanding the real power of Astrology for yourself. If you’re an intermediate student, there will be plenty of new material here for you. Even if you’re already a professional Western Astrologer, you’ll find that just the information on the Vedic Moon ALONE will greatly improve the depth of your readings… I know it’s worked that way for me… and I think The Moon is actually the best place to start with things.

Here’s a rough outline of what we’ll be covering:

WEEK ONE: Introduction to the Vedic Zodiac and Lunar Mansions, and why it is that when your planets “change Sign” they’re not REALLY doing that at all, and how the Western and Vedic systems can work together. How Vedic Sign and Mansion placements affect the Moon (and any other planet)

WEEK TWO: The Moon — it’s not just your emotions or your “feminine side”: it’s how your mind really works and is the Master Clock of your life. How aspects work in Vedic, and how aspects to your Moon affect who you are.

WEEK THREE: The Moon in its mansions in detail, and the surprisingly specific ways it makes you who you really re. Plus: The Navamsa… your OTHER birth chart. That’s right, you’ve got two of them!

WEEK FOUR: Predicting with The Moon… major life periods as lid out by the Vedic system. Ever wonder why some “bad transits” turn out good, and vice versa? Here’s why! …and after that? Well, we’ll just keep going until all your questions are answered. Think of it as an educational all-you-can-eat buffet!

THERE WILL ALSO BE: a weekly podcast covering what we’ve learned, and it will ll be done through its own Facebook page… drop in and read and learn and ask questions WHENEVER YOU LIKE, according to your own schedule!

PLUS when we’re done, you’ll receive a PDF of ll the relevant materials.

Class starts March 26th… but there’s still time to join! When you join you’ll get all the learning you want in one open-ended, no-time-limit setting. Learn at your own pace and on your own schedule! Plus: details on your own birth chart! It’s like a reading AND a course for one price.

If you’re an astrological novice, it will show you how to make real, solid observations about a person’s birth chart beyond merely “personality” stuff. If you’re a professional Western astrologer, the material on the Vedic Moon ALONE will greatly enhance your reading and your understanding. And if you’re ANYONE… it will be a good time with friends in a friendly environment.

The regular price is $90.00 but if you book TODAY I’ll knock $10.00 off… making the whole thing only $80.00! If you’d like to join, mail me and I’ll get you the details to get you hooked up!

Know The Power Of Your Vedic Moon

Goddess-Moon-Nakshatra-Vedic-AstrlogyIf you have even a passing familiarity with the role of The Moon in Western Astrology, you know it reflects your emotional nature. It is the yin to the sun’s yang.

But in Vedic Astrology…

 

-it determines what periods of opportunity and challenge will unfold in your life, when they will happen, and the specific features of how an entire 10-year period of your life will unfold.
-it defines the emotional circumstances you were born into, and the tone that was set for you for your entire life as a result.
it is the key to understanding how your mind works
-it has an effect on every other planet in your birth chart

 

ALSO:

 

You all know about the twelve Signs of the Zodiac… but the Moon further divides that up into 28 Lunar Mansions (“Nakshatras“)… which give everything in your chart a whole new level of meaning!

I’d like you all to join me for a month-long Facebook-based course on THE VEDIC MOON, which I believe is the single greatest strength of Vedic Astrology

IF YOU ARE A NOVICE: You’ll gain a greater understanding of yourself, your motivations, your strengths and weaknesses, and what periods of your life will naturally produce the most blessings and the most challenges.

IF YOU ARE AN INTERMEDIATE STUDENT: You’ll start out on the path to developing a much greater grasp of what Astrology can really do.

IF YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL WESTERN ASTROLOGER: You’ll be amazed at the insights and power of The Vedic moon, and even if you go no further with your studies, you’ll have a powerful new tool to integrate into your practice.

IF YOU’RE ANYONE: You’ll get learning PLUS customized material about your own birth Chart, in a friendly, go-at-your-own-pace environment… and all for ONE LOW PRICE… $90.00 — less than the cost of a reading!

CLASS STARTS MARCH 25

Buy Your Ticket To The Future You Want!

3602534236_afb1c00695_oAn old joke:

Every day of his adult life, Fred has prayed to win the lottery. Day and night, on bended knee, he attends churches and temples and mosques and sacred groves and in a hundred different ways he implores the Divine: “Please, oh Lord, oh Maker of All Things, oh Most Holy One… please please please, I only ask one tiny little thing of you: let me win the lottery!”

Finally one day, when Fred is old and tired and has neglected things like getting a job and having relationships and building a life for himself, the clouds part and miraculously The One True God appears to him.

FRED,” the booming voice of The Divine says, “MEET ME HALF WAY. BUY A TICKET!

***

Using astrology to look at the future can be like that joke. You can see upcoming transits that indicate difficulties and opportunities, but the truth is that too often we get a bit lazy with the potential prizes and worry too much about the rough spots. It’s absolutely true that Bad news gets more headlines than Good news, but that isn’t because there’s more Bad News than Good News… that’s just Human Nature.

The Astrology Of Your Inner Moon Child: Moon In Aquarius

matthew currie astrology moon in aquarius(I am presenting excerpts about Moon Signs from my book… a brief humorous description, followed by an appropriate Children’s Story. Enjoy!)

***

MOON IN AQUARIUS

If you have Moon in Aquarius, you have a wonderfully open and accepting approach to life, which makes you a great companion and a terrible security guard. You don’t handle jealously well, because others can’t tell you who or what you should be… especially given that you may not know those things yourself. Moon in Aquarius has a wonderful ability to empathize with everyone, to the point where you become both the psychotherapist and the guy in the tinfoil hat. You often deal with this by trying to take a step back and logically evaluating your relationships, which may be wise but isn’t terribly romantic. You often stop and ask yourself how you feel about things, and often an answer is ages in coming.

Moon in Aquarius recognizes that all men are brothers, and you are always willing to help your brother out — unless we’re talking about an emergency loan, in which case all men are complete strangers and should go away. Nonetheless, people can (and do) find ways to take advantage of you at times. You are rarely cruel or mean, and can’t usually stand the thought of hurting anyone. This makes you a wonderful friend and a terrible surgeon.

 

THE MOON IN AQUARIUS STORY

“Off with her head!” The Queen commanded as she pointed at Alice. The Queen’s footmen all swarmed on Alice, and she threw up her arms defensively.

Then Alice grabbed several of the footmen and began arranging them in groups of four. “That’s not how it’s played at all” she said to the Queen. Alice then turned to the footmen in the back of the crowd. “Okay, you guys lie down in a pile, face down. Neatly, now.”

“Off with her head!” The Queen shouted, more angrily than before.

“Now that’s no way to run a poker tournament, Your Majesty.” Alice responded. “Here’s how it’s done.” She pointed to the group of four footmen closest to her. “See, I have a pair of eights here. So, Three and Nine, you go stand over there. Now, the two guys at the top of the pile over there? You guys come here.” Puzzled, the two footmen at the top of the pile complied. Alice smiled. “Oh boy! Three of a kind!”

“OFF WITH HER HEAD!!!”

The Astrology Of Your Inner Moon Child: Moon In Capricorn

matthew currie astrology moon in capricorn(In preparation for my upcoming online course entitled THE MOON AND YOU, I am presenting excerpts about Moon Signs from my book… a brief humorous description, followed by an appropriate Children’s Story. Enjoy!)

MOON IN CAPRICORN

Just as Moon in Sagittarius is the life of the party, Moon in Capricorn is the clean-up crew that necessarily must follow afterwards. You have a reputation for being calm, contained, and maybe a little distant. This is because you have a tremendous depth of feeling that needs to be protected by maintaining emotional self-control. This can either eventually drive yourself or those who care about you completely nuts. Moon in Capricorn often comes across as managing its personal relationships with ruthless efficiency, which may be wise but isn’t terribly romantic.

You usually find one thing, place, or person in which to place your sense of emotional security. If that’s another person, you are probably fairly young (and haven’t learned how untrustworthy humans can be) or fairly old (and have spent most of your life overcoming your suspicions). Your defensiveness can be strangely appealing to other people who enjoy solving emotional mysteries, and can be frustrating as hell to everyone else. Moon in Capricorn strives for emotional self-sufficiency, which is as admirable as it is impossible.

THE MOON IN CAPRICORN STORY

“Tell me my name and you can have your baby!” The little man said.

“It’s Rumpelstiltskin!” the Miller’s Daughter said triumphantly.

Rumpelstiltskin pondered this for a moment, and then removed a contract from his back pocket. “Here you go,” he said as he handed it to her. “Spell it right, otherwise the agreement is void!”

The Miller’s Daughter thought about this for a moment and then filled in the form. Rumpelstiltskin examined it and found that, surprisingly, she had gotten it right.

“Okay then,” he said. “Now all you have to do is find a Notary before midnight to make it legal and binding.”

“But it’s 11:30 at night! And it’s a Saturday!” The Miller’s Daughter shouted in disbelief.

Rumpelstiltskin chuckled. “You shoulda read the fine print on the original agreement, sucker.”

MOON IN SAGITTARIUS

You are probably what people consider to be “the life of the party.” Unfortunately for you, you also bring that vibe to court hearings and funerals where perhaps that vibe doesn’t belong. People with Moon in Sagittarius are often described as “irrepressible,” and for good reason: there are many times when you can or should be repressed. You are caring and sympathetic and have a hard time seeing other people down or depressed. This makes you a supportive friend and makes you tend to take it far too easy on people who should be considered your enemy. Moon in Sagittarius can become depressed, and on those rare occasions when it does, it throws everything into it.

Moon in Sagittarius often enjoys a wide circle of friends and often takes a playful, fun approach to its closest relationships. This is a problem when your partner gets tired of you always being out playing with your friends. You mean well, of course, but have a hard time understanding that no, we can’t always “just get along.” Moon in Sagittarius functions best in an environment of like-minded individuals, which (in your case) often means children and/or dogs. You often have a gift for seeing the future, which is a good thing, because you don’t pay enough attention to the here and now.

THE MOON IN SAGITTARIUS STORY

“Little pig, little pig, let me in!” The Wolf shouted at the Brick House. After a moment, a silver projectile launched from the upstairs window and landed at the Wolf’s feet. It was a beer can.

“Okay, drink that first!” a voice said from inside.

The Wolf did so, and began to shout again at the House. “Little pig, little pig –“

Another can flew out the window. “Not yet. Keep drinking!” the little voice said from inside the house, where loud dance music soon began thumping.

This process repeated itself for another hour and a half. By the end of the evening, The Big Bad Wolf was inside the brick house, lying on the floor and moaning “I love you guys!” to his new-found friends. He spent most of the night alternately singing and complaining about his lackluster love life to the Three Little Pigs.

The next morning, The Big Bad Wolf awoke before the pigs did, and he promptly ate them.
