The Lunar Planner Material
There are three parts to the Monthly Lunar Planner:
1) The Lunar Planner Introduction - The Lunar Cycle & Lunar Phases
This FREE printable document provides simple and empowering instructions on how to live in attunement to the natural lunar phases. Includes a detailed explanation of the characteristics of each lunar phase, how one lunar phase shifts to another, creating an experiential monthly rhythm of our personal growth.
The Lunar Planner Introduction is not something to just read, it is an experiential and participatory tool that can empower you to live in harmony and balance with your emotional and physical experience. To gain full benefit from the Lunar Planner, use it along with each month's lunar calendar on a daily basis: write down your experiences and feelings in each month's calendar, especially before and after each lunar phase shift. Noting and observing your experiences and feelings on a daily basis—in the context of the lunar phase characteristics as presented in this Introduction—is the key. Doing so quickly reveals how your life experience, inner feelings, and realizations already occur in tune with the lunar phases. As you observe the synchronicity between your life experience, inner feelings, and the changing lunar phases, you can then learn to consciously live attuned to the natural spiral of growth rather than just observe it, not only scheduling your activities within the lunar spiral of growth, but more importantly, embracing your life experience in its fullness, living in the present and thus gaining greater self-empowerment through the inner growth your life experience has to offer.

2) This Month's Lunar Calendar
The two page Lunar Calendar is posted just before each NEW MOON. The Lunar Calendar reveals the dates and times of each lunar phase shift and their changing characteristics. You can use the lunar calendar as a daily planner as well as a journal to record your experiences and feelings as the changing lunar phase occur.
Writing your experiences in the Lunar Calendar and correlating them with the changing lunar phases is the best way to learn how the lunar cycles and their changes phases work at an experiential level. Working with the Lunar Planner Introduction along with each month's lunar calendar can help you to become consciously aware of the lunar rhythm in your life and how to participate with it in empowerment. The Lunar Calendar goes hand-in-hand with the above Lunar Planner Introductory pdf file.
• An "Aspects Version" of the Lunar Calendar is still available to subscribers, It has the principal lunar aspects and other planetary cycles listed under each lunar phase, for those wishing to have this additional information.
• The "Journal Version" of the Lunar Calendar is FREE to all visitors. It has all aspects removed, thus making room to use it as a journal. Writing your experiences in the Lunar Calendar and correlating them with the changing lunar phases is the best way to learn how the lunar cycle of growth works at an experiential level.
The July 16, 2015 Lunar Calendar
The monthly Lunar Planner is based in star level, Sidereal Astrology and Synodic Astrology with unique and original Galactic Star Lore—the mythology (picture language) of the Greater Heavens. Each New Moon Theme articulates the cycles of growth unfolding in our lives. The theme of each lunar month weaves a story line of our evolutionary unfoldment and spiritual awakening. Each New Moon theme is posted just before each New Moon, along with the new month's Lunar Calendar.
Looking at the astrology of individual stars rather than that of mere astrological signs (whether tropical or sidereal), is like adjusting an out of focus camera lens into crystal clarity.
Although each lunar month's astrological commentary reveals the dynamics of the unfolding lunar theme and provides an embracing context to our experience, it is adjunct material. It is not necessary to read the monthly astrology to learn to live in attunement to the lunar calendar as offered in the above free Lunar Planner Introduction and by using each month's free Lunar Calendar. The monthly lunar theme is also a wonderful educational tool for the sidereal astrologer wishing to learn more about astronomy, synodic cycles, the fixed stars and their influence in astrology.

Primary Astrological Reference Material
Learn about Earth's Precession; the relationship between the tropical and sidereal zodiacs; the astrological ages, the intercession of Earth's Precessional Cross; measurement of the precessional rate, and introducing the Galactic Equatorial Ayanamsa: Reckoning of the sidereal zodiak to the galactic axis of Earth's Precessional Cross is based upon the spherical geometry created by Earth's precessional orientation in the solar system and our solar system's current location and orientation in the galaxy), rather than merely on star locations as seen from Earth.
A retrograde period of a planet marks the time when we disengage from a planet's previous synodic cycle and engage in its next one. Learn more about these underlying cycles of growth—the musical score creating the symphony upon which we evolve. In addition to an introduction to Synodic Cycles, there are links to several articles about specific synodic cycles with the main planets as well as with the newly discover dwarf planets: Eris, Quaoar, Ixion, Orcus, etc.
Getting to know the heavens: This is a sky map of the heavens that shows the stars, constellations, and the sidereal signs. Visually learn how the stars and constellations interrelate and blend to create each sidereal sign. This is a wonderful tool for the novice or seasoned sidereal astrologer, for the astronomer, for the casual sky watcher, or simply for those wishing to know more of the Greater Heavens under which we live. The Sky Chart is also a wonderful reference for the material presented in each month's Lunar Planner.
Learn about the four primary Asteroids - Ceres, Juno, Vesta, and Pallas; the Centaurs - Chiron, Phollus and Nessus; and the recently discovered "Dwarf Planets of the Kuiper Belt" - The Friends of Pluto: Quaoar, Ixion, Varuna, Orcus and Eris (which was discovered on January 5, 2005 and is larger than Pluto), Haumea & Makemake; and very distant Sedna and 2012 VP113, temporalily named Biden, discovered near Sedna.
There are two Venus Transit occurring in this millennium, also called a Venus Passage. The Venus Transit presently upon us comes in a pair, with each transit in the pair spaced eight years apart. One transit occurs on June 8, 2004 and the other on June 6, 2012. This is a rare once in a life time event. The last Venus Transit (pair) occurred 129.5 years ago in 1874 and 1882. The next pair will occur 113.5 years from this one, in 2117 and 2125.
During a Venus Transit, Venus lies directly in front of the Sun and in line with Earth, at which time Venus acts like a gravitational lens focusing the sun's rays through Venus onto Earth. Thus, the Venus Transit creates a condition where the harmonizing and beneficent resonances of Venus are highly focused (emblazoned) upon the Earth—inspiring a new level of Venusian qualities to permeate Earth and spread throughout human consciousness. This specific transit pair (2004-2012), because it coincides with Earth's current Precessional Cross, strongly supports the reintegration and emergence of the Divine Feminine in our world—which desperately awaits the guidance and balance of the Goddess. In addition, the direct Sun-Earth-Venus alignemnet makes the new Earth-Venus 584-day synodic cycle of extra significance.
This article explores the eight-year pentagonal cycle of Venus; how the retrogrades of Venus are created; the 243-year Venus Passage cycle; why the transits in this cycle come in pairs for a while and why they then become singular; the drift of this cycle through the zodiak; the star alignments of the 2004/2012 transits in the sidereal zodiak; the psychophysiology (mental-emotional-physical facets) of Venus in our lives; and the astrophysical resonances of Venus in light (color), sound, and brain wave frequencies.
Learn about the Venus Elongations and their correspondences with the Crescent and Balsamic Moons.
The Astronomy and the Astrology: In August 2003, Mars was closer to Earth than it has ever been in about 73,000 years. It appeared more than six times larger than normal and 85 times brighter—brighter than Jupiter. Learn about the significance and astronomy of this event, and about the future cycles of Mars.
There is an email that seems to circulate about this 2003 event, erroneously claiming it is occurring each year the email circulates; as well as a statement that Mars will appear larger than the moon - pretty silly eh?. Learn the facts here.

Designed for the Attunement, Transformation,
and the Evolution of Consciousness
Get Attuned: A planet does not merely resonate to one frequency, as is sometimes thought, it is a complex rotating dynamic system composed of many astrophysical parameters that together create a planet's unique "harmonic signature."
The entire composition created by all of the individual planetary harmonic signatures, as well as the cycles they create with each other, establishes the musical symphony of our solar system, the harmonic environment in which life on Earth evolves. Thus we are not separate from these harmonic resonances, our biological and neurological systems function in attunement to this astrophysical symphony. Each planetary harmonic signature thus resonates with its corresponding neurological aspect of our selves—our entire mental, emotional and physical composition—the science behind the astrology.
Each 15-minute audio meditation is meticulously designed to incorporate a planet's harmonic signature in a way that brings the listener through a profound inner journey. Get in touch with and resolve issues you may have surrounding a specific planetary quality, strength and harmonize that planetary quality within self and in your life.
Astronomical Astrology is an exploration of the individual stars and deep space objects in the entire celestial sphere and their expression through the astrological chart. Astronomical Astrology is based on actual planetary alignments to individual stars and constellations as if we are looking directly into the heavens.
"An Introduction To Astronomical Astrology" is an indispensable tool and reference for the serious astrologer or for anyone wishing to learn star-level astrology. Whether you are a sidereal astrologer or a seasoned tropical astrologer wishing to explore the fixed stars, the material in this book will expand your awareness of the Greater Heavens.

The cross in a circle, is not only a spiritual symbol, it is also the astronomical symbol for planet Earth. The cosmic significance of this symbol is that it marks the timing of a primary transition or turning in the natural evolutionary cycle of the Earth. hidden within this symbol is a map referring to a unique occurrence of a specific geometric relationship between Earth, the solar system, and our galaxy—an astrophysical event occurring NOW, within Earth's ~25,000 year, precessional cycle. The precessional movement of the Earth governs the evolutionary unfoldment of consciousness on Earth. This portal of evolutionary change, occurring now in Earth's Precessional Cycle, propels human consciousness into Galactic (Unified Field) Awareness.
