Happy Harvest Time!
As the holidays approach and the year draws to a close, I am grateful for the rich life I have lived and to everyone who has enriched it. Our daughter Luce turned two last month and continues to amaze us as she becomes more relational, deepens in emotional complexity, and begins to talk—starting most days, while still in the crib, with a demand for the open air: “Oooout!” In addition to romping around the great outdoors with Lucy, here are some things that happened with us this year…
In the spring, I had a fabulous time teaching The Astronomy and Cultural History of Astrology through our business, Trust Psyche. I also gave over 50 astrology readings this year, something that brings together so many different parts of myself: intellectual, emotional, spiritual, practical, interpersonal. I would love to sit down with you or one of your loved ones (a reading is a great gift for the holidays!). Learn more here.
In the summer, I turned 40, something I thought would never happen—but it turns out that growing up is fun. In keeping with my newly acquired wisdom, I was ordained as a minister and performed my first wedding.
In the fall, things got hard. The whole family got covid and a slew of other illnesses. We had ongoing childcare problems. And then we got walloped by hurricane Ian, which knocked out our power, water, and cell service for two weeks. It all climaxed during the recent eclipse season, which you can hear more about on Jessica’s podcast. Finally, though, things are starting to look up, making it easier to remember my blessings (like the fact that my child sleeps through the night!).
In the spring, Jessica and I will be co-teaching our first course together, Aspects in Astrology: Sacred Geometry. Over six weeks, we will explore the meaning of the different geometric angular relationships formed between the planets from historical, clinical, musical, and mathematical perspectives. This class is suitable for all levels, beginner to advanced.
Wishing you and yours a warm holiday season and a bright New Year to come,
