Joanne's new E-book
Available for Nook, Kindle, Palm Doc, PDF, On-Line reading and others.
Welcome. While you're here, be sure to read about my Home Study Courses in Astrology.
Courses are available from beginning through advanced levels. Articles
are also available covering an array of astrological subjects.
I am also very happy to introduce my new book, "Reframing Transits." It is a book that I have wanted to write for many years, and finally it's here, in several e-book formats, so you can read it on your Kindle, Nook, PDF or online. This isn't like most books on transits. It is far more complex, yet introduced in a way that even the novice can understand. I look forward to hearing your responses about the book.
"As Above, So Below"
What is astrology? It is a study that compares the movement of celestial bodies to life on our planet. Just as the earth moving around the sun in its yearly trek determines the seasons of our year, astrologers study the many celestial cycles that influence our lives. From the perspective of human potentiality, astrologers compare the "map" of the sky as it was at the moment of birth to an individual's life and evolution. That map is called a horoscope.
At one time in history astrology was held in high esteem. Its concepts and symbols are intertwined throughout philosophy, art, literature, theology, and medicine. Astrology did not die when it ceased being part of the academic experience after the "Age of Enlightenment", however the quality of understanding suffered greatly. By the 20th Century a large part of society associated astrology with parlor-room entertainment, which led to what we now call "sun-sign" astrology. Those who wanted to seriously learn about this age-old system did so in private or in small group environments. Because of its isolation from the rest of society and its schools, the thread that connects astrology to other subjects has almost been broken.
Today's astrologers are trying to change that. Professional Organizations such as NCGR, ISAR, AFAN and others are working to elevate the image of astrology. Sophisticated software is now available to assist in research. Finally, Astrology is returning to the world of academia.
Recently I have taken up beading amulet bags, sometimes called medicine bags. The tiny beads used to make these bags are "delica".
(Maybe my intercepted Virgo has finally come out.)The large bags
are great for carrying reading glasses, credit cards, driver's licence, etc. The small bags
can hold a special good luck charm. I invite you to look at some of the necklace/bags that I have created.
