45. The Language we Use in Astrology Practice with Diana Rose

Ep. 45
Diana Rose and I discussed the language we use in astrology (especially concerning Hellenistic/traditional concepts like “exalted”, “detriment”, “fall”, or the strength or weakness of a planet) and unpacking the layered meanings involved here in terms of connotation, how these words are misinterpreted, and what these words are more earnestly pointing to. We discussed how the astrological concept of essential dignity can be a tool for meaning-making, confronting personal challenges, and discovering how to connect with our inherent resources that our chart points to. We also talked about the connection between notable people and how they tend to be intensely embodying their natal chart, the twelfth house, and archetypes Diana’s been connecting with lately!Diana Rose is an astrologer, tarot reader, reiki master, writer, & workshop facilitator currently based in Los Angeles, California, and serving clients worldwide through the magic of the internet. She is deeply invested in the power of asking better, deeper questions towards a more ferociously loving and compassionately honest state of being. By blending an earnest belief in humankind's ability to do better, a disinterest in dysfunctional hierarchies, and delight in the process of healing, she aims to guide others towards an expansive and re-enchanted relationship with existence. Her dedication to eroding systems of oppression means that she offers sliding scale to those who carry certain marginalized identities: non-white-passing POC, trans, GNC, immigrant, & Indigenous folks are included in that, as well as care workers, sex workers, and activists working towards liberation and environmental justice. In May of 2020, she will be a first-time invited speaker at the Northwest Astrological Conference presenting her talk Fierce Compassion: Natal Astrology as Radical Self-Care.Diana's website: https://ddamascenaa.comDiana's instagram:@ddamascenaaget on my mailing list to receive the weekly astrology forecasts to your inbox here.Music by Danny Lampton ofThe Light & The Weight

41. The Rising Man & Heart-Centered Masculinity with Jeddy Azuma

Ep. 41
I spoke with Jeddy Azuma, men's mentor and fellow podcaster, of the Rising Man podcast. I find his voice particularly soulful and see him as someone who is full of aliveness in his path. I also find him to be consistently sharing poignant ideas on his podcast and instagram, and have been especially touched by his reflections on creating safety for women. I invited him on the show because I wanted to learn more about what men’s work is & discuss some philosophy around it like what are we talking about when we say masculine and what kind of impact men's work can create.As a newly minted college grad and healthcare professional, Jeddy soon began to experience the pain of having no sense of higher purpose or meaning in his life. A life-changing run-in with the law and his own deep personal reflections sent him on a 3,000 mile journey across the country to discover meaning.From silent meditations to fasting in the wilderness for 4 days and nights, Jeddy discovered the importance of men’s circles and Rites of Passage, and has since dedicated his life to providing these opportunities for other men seeking their purpose.Jeddy is the creator of The Rising Man Movement, one of the founders of The Conscious Man Brotherhood (CMB) and Man Cave. He leads men on Rites of Passage journeys to initiate an entire generation of men and to mold the leaders of future generations.He is a husband, father, martial artist, and mentor to men of all ages.Jeddy's website: https://risingman.orgConnect with Jeddy Azuma on InstagramConnect with me on instagram @sabrinamonarchRead the weekly astrology forecasts at www.monarchastrology.comLearn Evolutionary Astrology with me in JanuaryMusic by Danny Lampton ofThe Light & The Weight

40. Planetary Combinations of Mercury with Becca Tarnas Part Two

Ep. 40
I had Becca Tarnas back on the show to discuss the planetary combinations of Mercury after we last discussed the planetary combinations of Venus. This episode is part two of our conversation where wel discuss Mercury’s combinations with Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. See the episode before this one (39) for Mercury's combinations to Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn!Becca is a scholar, artist, and counseling astrologer, and an editor ofArchai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology.She received her PhD in Philosophy and Religion at theCalifornia Institute of Integral Studiesin San Francisco and her dissertation is titledThe Back of Beyond: The Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien.Speaking with Becca and getting to otherwise interact with her work is a real pleasure one reason of which is that she combines such deep intellect and scholarship with the numinous and the mythic, which I feel becomes a doorway to making new connections about the magic of the world around us. Archetypes, after all, are everywhere. We explored Mercury as it expresses in people’s communication styles but also some of the esoteric qualities of Mercury like spell-casting, etymology, and “dead languages”.Connect with me on instagram @sabrinamonarchRead the weekly astrology forecasts at www.monarchastrology.comLearn Evolutionary Astrology with me in JanuaryMusic by Danny Lampton ofThe Light & The Weight
