Astrology and Your Career

as a Woman

The Peninsula Woman

Summer 1999

 

Woman are doing it all these days. Why? Because we can. Because we want to. Because it is part of our healing. We have families, jobs, careers, hobbies, exercise programs, relationships, friendships, group activities, charities organizations etc.. etc...etc. We want it all.

The other day I was watching an old Oscar winning movie called, All About Eve. Essentially, this movie was made in the 1950's when woman's values were much different than they are today. In lieu of that, I found this one scene particularly intriguing. Bette Davis was reflecting on the careers of Woman. She says, and I am quoting, Funny business a woman's career. The things you drop on your way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you'll need them again when you get back to being a woman. It's one career females all have in common whether we like it or not - is being a woman. Sooner or later we've got to work at it. No matter how many other careers we've had or wanted?

The Peninsula Woman

Summer 1999

 

It happens about once a month...... I go into a cleaning frenzy. It has to be a woman thing. A few days before my menstrual cycle I find myself a crazed madwoman. I clean all kinds of things. Maybe you know what I am talking about. Have you ever had this experience? 

I don’t do this in a normal way. I get this gleam in my eyes and a total body surge to get the project accomplished. Literally, if anyone is in my way, they will be vacuumed or polished depending on what I am doing. It is a huge catharsis. When I am done, I feel purified and cleansed. It is glorious. I am healed. I know the Goddess is alive in me when I am done.

Archetypes and Magical Reality

April 2004

By Amber Flynn


This article appeared in Vision Magazine April 2004

Magical Realism is the blending of the most fundamental archetypal energies found in the child and the adult.  Children crave magic and adults need realism.  The connection of these two archetypes and the connection between magic and realism is obvious when we feel it.  It is also reflected in your astrological chart.

Most of us love to watch magicians. For a moment (albeit brief) we are transported to a world where anything is possible! We want to believe what our eyes have just seen. Somewhere inside we know we have been tricked, but enjoy the magical feeling! The child archetype that exists in each of us isrenewed by this experience.  The child is captivated by the thrill of the unknown. It is in this state of consciousness that we are truly alive and learning.

The Cosmic Roots of Sin and Virtue

True, without falsehood, certain and most true, that which is above is as that which is below, and that which is below is as that which is above, for the performance of the miracles of the One Thing…

~The Emerald Tablet of Hermes

”Sin” originates from the Greek word hamartia, which means --- “missing the mark,” “not on target,” or “mistake.”  The Greek philosopher Aristotle translated hamartia as the “tragic flaw” or “frailty” that is present in the hero’s journey of the Greek tragedies.  The “mistake of the hero” is integral in the plot of every tragedy.  Ultimately the hero’s fall into misfortune was determined by the nature of his or her specific type of hamartia. In Hinduism and other Ancient Teachings, the term “sin” is often used to describe actions that create negative karma or results.  Considered similar to the Hindu concept of dharma or destiny, Hamartia – the “sin” or “tragic flaw” is the “missing of the mark” of the cosmic order.

“This thing of darkness, I acknowledge mine.”

~ William Shakespeare

Every woman has a story of the “Dark Side.”  Sit down with a woman long enough to let her polite, guarded side down and she will share this burden with you. Persuade her to go into detail and you will soon find yourself revealing your own personal dark side experience.

The Dark Side story is an often unpleasant, but powerful tale that can be found in anyone’s life. It is a forbidden account of an action, thought, idea or feeling believed to be unacceptable in our society. Sharing this story can create a deep vulnerability within each of us. At first, the vulnerable feelings become associated with intense feelings of separation. But ultimately, the dark side story when shared will help you connect with your personal Spiritual journey.
