In The Personal Planets I explore how the energy of these planets make up our basic personality imprint. These planets give us the basic structure of our personality.
- The heart and soul of who we are, the realm of the Sun
- How we feel about everything, our lunar selves
- The mind and how it functions, the trickster Mercury
- What it is we desire in life, our relationship to Venus
- How do we approach achieving these goals- we need Mars to action.
The issues and discussion held within these planets describe our functionality. In a workbook style I offer discussion and exercises to bring them fully into awareness. We need to understand how each one wants to function individually, in spite of any other planet hanging on the end of it. I introduce the reader to step inside the wheel and experience how the energy feels on the inside.
This is the realm that The Personal Planets delves into. The exercises that are used in this book are devised for your own self- discovery.
I view the personal energetic pattern that we are born into as a puppet. We are the puppeteers of our own patterns. The more we understand about each individual energetic thread the more flexibility we have in its usage.
UNIT 1: The Zodiac As an Energy Matrix
The zodiac signs are the veils through which we express our energy. They are the basic structures of astrological energy and how it moves towards manifestation. A true magician stands in the middle of this matrix and directs the energetic flow applicable to any given situation.
UNIT 2: The Wheel of Life
Through the wheel, a magician knows the stages she has set to perform the magic of her life. She knows which windows the energies of heaven will shine through and where her greatest challenges will come from. She can watch the passing of the year’s energetic patterns and understand there is a map to help her unfold the journey.
UNIT 3: Veils and Doorways
Working within a Magician’s wheel, we must first understand what energy is available to us so we can unlock each doorway. Every sign on a house cusp tells us which veil to pass through. The realities that are presented beyond the veils are the doorways to a stage of human experience. We all live upon this stage even though through time the story lines alter.
UNIT 4: Sun Signs
The Sun’s journey is the heart’s journey pulsing with purpose. The heart beat of the magician is from one heart felt purpose to the next. Why am I here if not to walk my heart? Love, fulfilment and creation are the beat of this drum.
UNIT 5: The Astrological Moon
The movement of the Moon is the closest heavenly dance to us. She entwines around the Earth as they move together around the Sun. From ancient times she has been the first of the astrological planets to be observed. Through time we have projected our feeling natures upon Her cycles and phases. In her pathways we understand a part of the mysteries of our own psyches.
UNIT 6: The Lunar Cycles
Nature gives us energetic doorways to access quite regularly. The Moon provides us with opportunities to ritualise our personal journeys every month. The moon circles the zodiac every 28 days. This means she peeps onto every sign and house in your chart monthly. Awareness of this fact provides us with many windows to work with.
UNIT 7: Mercury. Power of the Mind
Mercury is a tiny planet that symbolises a broad terrain. How can one so small embody the complexes of the human mind? All that one thinks, learns and says is consumed by the movement of Mercury. This tiny trickster magician for one of humanity’s greatest ongoing mysteries: how does the thought mind function?
UNIT 8: Movement of Loving
There is nothing more magical in the world than love. Then why can’t we get it right? Love is a creative force that binds people to each other, create new beings and so often destroys the very beauty of what was created. There seems to be an urge within to keep rekindling the flame of passion on a search for a unity that is unreachable.
UNIT 9: In Search of the Feminine
May we one day be free to be the beauty of the women that we are. May we clear the heavy load of imagery bestowed upon us by centuries of violence and fear towards us and the commercial abuse of our bodies.
UNIT 10: The Breath of the Dragon
Let’s approach the dragon, sleeping in his lair. It is with fear and trepidation I probe the sanctuary of masculinity. The boundaries of gender are being blown wide open in this age we are living in. This treatise digs among the jewels that lie buried in the dragon’s nest.
