I found out about these asteroids at the New Moon in Aquarius, which fell in my 8th house, and it was the 8th house emphasis that led me to exploring the dark moon goddesses (as this house has connections to Pluto and Scorpio, plus the new moon itself is a dark moon), one of which is Medusa (see Demetra George's book Mysteries of the Dark Moon). Medusa guarded the ancient female mysteries and had a connection with serpents - an animal which is of importance to me. What she represented got thwarted when she was adopted into the greek, patriarchal pantheon, and well - nowadays we think of her as that horrible woman with snakes instead of hair on her head, who kills you by just one look - especially if you're a man.
Connecting to positive Medusa can, I think, be a very releasing and healing experience for many women today - I know she is an important archetype for me to try to get in touch with. She is the clue to my primal, female, serpent power! And, she is conjunct Urania! And, I want to become a professional astrologer! And both of them are linked with my Mars, which I know I have some difficulty expressing positively. And the whole bunch were lit up during yesterday's full moon. This is really profound as I "discovered" them on the new moon leading up to this full moon. On the other side of the opposition were Sun, Mars, Mercury, Chiron and Neptune! Wow.... this line-up must have added to the feeling of profundity and sacredness this full moon had to it.
My intention for the new moon was connected to both Urania and Medusa, so I expected them to be highlighted right now, to be understood a bit better. And what happened, this afternoon, was I really "connected" with Urania. I was meditating, asking for guidance, and went deep into my inner imagery and felt that I was really in the flow. Then she was there. First, there was a beautiful , exquisite dress being shown to me: pale yellow, with a sweet pattern of embroidered dark red/brown flowers, and with a pretty lace collar - it had a renaissance feeling to it. Then I saw myself in this dress, up in a tower in the starry night, gazing at the heavens through my two (!) telescopes. I knew I was Urania, or embodying Urania, and I heard a voice assuring me that I am on the right path with astrology and need not worry about it, I already have it in me and am really talented at it.
I reappeared from the meditation by the phone ringing, and it was a friend who is an astrologer. She said: I just bought the most lovely, delicate summer dress!
So, there I had it! There are still more questions to be answered - the Medusa connection to Urania is not very clear to me yet - but I know now that astrology is a clue to gaining access to positive Mars. Medusa will probably follow.... I just find these things amazing. We are truly moving into a much better world and we need to start listening more to our inner guidance, and connect with our multidimensional selves. We need to align with our soul blueprint and step more firmly onto our true path. Astrology can help us getting attuned to the cosmic energies and align with the flow. If you would like me to help you understanding yourself and your path better, please contact me.

I hope this post will inspire you to be receptive to what is shown to you at a Full Moon, and that this is a natural outgrowth of intentions set during the New Moon leading up to it. I will write more about "moon magic" in a forthcoming post.
I'm sending you much love and care! Please feel very free to comment upon any of the posts in this blog. I would love to get to know my readers a bit!

When you request a consultation, you need to specify the particular issue(s) at hand. You can also just ask for a basic chart reading, which will delineate your basic character and strengths and challenges which are part of your psychological make-up. There is also the possibility to request a transits reading, which takes a look at what themes are being triggered in your chart right now, via the movements of the celestial bodies in the heavens. If your question is about relationship issues which involves another person, a synastry/composite reading can be done. In synastry the charts of the two persons are overlayed and this gives information about how the persons affect eachother. A composite chart is when the midpoints between each two planets (i.e the midpoint between person A's and person B's Sun, Mercury, Venus etc) of the two charts will be the basis of a whole new chart, which will be representative of the relationship itself.
When you request a reading you also need to provide your exact time of birth (year, day, hour and minute) and place of birth (city, state, nation). If you're asking about a relationship with someone, this person's data are needed too. Please note that the time of birth needs to be correct - otherwise the reading will be inaccurate.
Welcome with any questions and with your request for an astrology consultation to firstname.lastname@example.org. When I have received your request and the data needed, I will confirm your request with an email and await your payment (via Paypal) of 50 USD (just click on the Buy now button below). After I have received your payment, you will need to wait 2 to 3 days to receive your reading of 4-6 full text pages. The reports are synthesized completely by myself (no computer analysis) and I spend many hours on each report.With love,

For many, many years I have been reading about jungian psychology, symbology, dreamwork and, above all, astrology. The symbology became a foundation for me to stand upon; the symbolic language opened up the inner world to me, and this inner world turned out to be a basic clue to happiness in my life. I navigate from the inside - mostly - and without understanding the language of the inner world I would be quite lost. My conscious relationship to the inner world started with jungian psychology. I read a lot about it, and then had a chance to meet a jungian analyst during half a year or so, when I was about the age of 25. During this time I kept a dream journal and had a very active relationship with the symbol world and the archetypes. I think often this naturally leads on to astrology - it did for me at least. It was the beginning of a love story which is still going strong 10 years later, and I am pretty sure it will never end (as I am pretty sure I have been doing this in previous/parallel lifetimes, too). Astrology for me was about making the subjective a little bit more objective, tangible and comprehensible. It was about my inner experiences making sense in a larger scheme. It was about finding meaning. I could look to the symbols that came to me in my dreams at night, or in meditations and visions, and correlate them to what was going on in the heavens and how this triggered off my natal birthchart. My life began to make sense and it even seemed much more exciting!
And here I find myself many years after my initial meeting with this wonderful world, not being able to stop this urge to share what I've learnt and help people aligning more closely with their true selves through astrology. The Uranus transit to my MC in late Pisces, which began in June 2009 is now over. The final push in this career transition for me was the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction (which we've had for a while), which was exact on the day of the solar eclipse on the Capricorn new moon on January 4th, within a degree of my MC. With this energetical boost I suddenly felt VERY sure: what I will do is becoming an astrologer! I "happened to" find the website of the IAA (the International Academy of Astrology) and it did not take long until I had made my final decision to start studying with them. This is a preparation to become a certified astrologer with the ISAR or the NCGR.
I feel GREAT about this! Be prepared to see many new interesting turns and offers coming up soon on this blog :)! I am as eager to start reading charts now as I was last year about this time - but now I feel better prepared for it. So watch out for the next post, coming up soon.
Sending lots of love to you all!
