48. A Depth Exploration of Virgo & Pluto in Virgo with Mark Jones

Ep. 48

Mark Jones is an astrologer, teacher, Psychosynthesis therapist and hypnotherapist working with clients and students throughout the world. Mark’s first book; Healing the Soul: Pluto, Uranus and the Lunar Nodes, explains in detail his astrological method. His second book; The Soul Speaks: the Therapeutic Potential of Astrology, fuses Mark’s experience as a transpersonal psychotherapist with astrology to outline the transformative potential of an astrological reading. In addition, Mark has authored chapters in Astrology: the New Generation; Transpersonal Astrology; and Insights into Evolutionary Astrology.


From 15 years in private practice as a psychotherapist and astrologer---what has now been over 10,000 hours of client work---Mark has developed a model of transformational astrological counselling in which he works with individuals after the initial natal chart reading to support achievement of their true potential.


We spoke about the Pluto archetype and explored Virgo and Pluto in Virgo specifically, but this episode is full of universals, regardless of what we have in Virgo in our charts - we all have the experience of self-analysis, self-criticism, perfectionism, and learning how to relate to our pursuit of self-refinement and the capacity to be introspective and to analyze ourselves without falling into a great abyss of self-doubt in the process. The Pluto in Virgo generation were born roughly between 1957 - 1972 (but of course if you don’t know, look up the natal chart on astro.com) We also spoke about trauma-scanning (looking for fault in one’s environment), manifestation, the so-called ‘placebo’ effect and the power of belief, and finding grace and meaning in one’s own intimate corner of the universe… and more!


Mark has some upcoming in-person workshops in Bend, Oregon September 4-7, 2020 and in Newport, Wales October 26-30, 2020.

63. The Pluto in Scorpio Generation & Social Change with Jaliessa Sipress

Ep. 63
I had astrologer Jaliessa Sipress on to discuss the Pluto in Scorpio generation and this generation’s relationship with social change. You’ll need to look up any given natal chart to be sure of where Pluto is, but the Pluto in Scorpio generation is born roughly between 1983 - 1995. We discussed some major themes of this generation, how this generation influences the social fabric, and how this generation (and other generations) are involved with the current racial justice movement.Jaliessa Sipress is an Astrologer, writer and artist committed to expanding people's minds and helping them love themselves and their lives more. She uses Astrology as a catalyst to talk about broader spiritual topics, love and relationships, manifestation, and more. You can find out more about her and her work at jaliessasipress.com.I’ve left every conversation with Jaliessa palpably with more knowledge and insight. I took her course that she produced with Collin Bedell - her Love and Relationships course - and got so much out of it. Jaliessa brings a luminescent depth toward the topics she explores and I’m so glad to have had her on the show. Jaliessa also has a podcast called Fun But Heavy that I’d suggest checking out!Connect with Jaliessa on IG: @jaliessasipressSupport the Kickstarter to fund the year ahead of astrology forecasts and Magic of the Spheres podcast episodes!✨🎓✨Learn more about the Online Presence as Performance Art Course.✨🎓✨Learn more about the Evolutionary Astrology Intensive.✨🔮✨ Visit my website and read the astrology forecasts:http://www.monarchastrology.com✨💌✨ Sign up for my mailing list:http://eepurl.com/b2U6bP✨🖥✨ Watch the astrology forecasts on YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/c/sabrinamonarch✨🔮✨ Book an evolutionary astrology reading with me:https://monarchastrology.com/product/astrology-reading-2/IG: @sabrinamonarchTwitter: @Sabrina_monarchMusic by Danny Lampton ofThe Light & The Weight

62. Performance, Magic & Charisma with Nate Speare

Ep. 62
I had a fascinating conversation with fellow astrologer Nate Speare about performance, and performance’s connections to psychological/emotional range, magic, and charisma. I wanted to talk to Nate because when I see his astrology updates on social media, they are transmission-like, where he uses different sounds, and voices, and theatric elements essentially, to convey the feeling tone of the transits he is describing. I felt that there was probably something really interesting and thoughtful behind that process and how he developed that theatric vocabulary, and I wasn’t wrong :)Nate Speare is an astrologer, vocal artist, storyteller, mythologist, and educator. He comes from a line of astrologers and sound/music composers who used natural environmental sounds and the connection between sound, the natural environment, and the characters within the earth and sky. He offers consulting sessions, writes essays, tells stories and uses his voice in videos and live performance as an active representative of the world to re-ignite a sense of magic in every client. It is his aim to connect each person to the idea that they are not blank slates, but that they entered the world with their own "daimon" and irreplaceable style of talented genius with inspiring and definite directions in life. As an astrologer, Nate has studied under Jungian psychological and evolutionary astrologer Montgomery Taylor, and is influenced by Archetypal, Shamanic and Renaissance schools of astrology. Nate directs Mythopoetic Astrology, a consulting practice that integrates experiential therapy of astrology through Astro-Drama, voice, sonic art and client consulting. His teaching credits include Salem Summer Symposium (Massachusetts) Myth and Theatre Festival (France), and Jung Institute NYC. Nate is a collaborator of PanTheatre, the France-based cultural organization that researches the relationship between contemporary performance, mythology, and the archetypal psychology of James Hillman, the company's Honorary President. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, where he is also the co-artistic director of Nekyia Theatre.Find Nate onIG: mythopoetic_astrologyhttp://www.mythopoeticastrology.comFB: Mythopoetic Astrology Primordials, Nate Speare, Mythopoetic AstrologyTwitter:https://mobile.twitter.com/SpeareNateSupport the Kickstarter to fund the year ahead of astrology forecasts and Magic of the Spheres podcast episodes!✨🎓✨Learn more about the Online Presence as Performance Art Course.✨🎓✨Learn more about the Evolutionary Astrology Intensive.✨🔮✨ Visit my website and read the astrology forecasts:http://www.monarchastrology.com✨💌✨ Sign up for my mailing list:http://eepurl.com/b2U6bP✨🖥✨ Watch the astrology forecasts on YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/c/sabrinamonarch✨🔮✨ Book an evolutionary astrology reading with me:https://monarchastrology.com/product/astrology-reading-2/IG: @sabrinamonarchTwitter: @Sabrina_monarchMusic by Danny Lampton ofThe Light & The Weight
