An enhanced faith that we can do what is being asked of us is possible when the Sun in Sagittarius forms a sextile to Sagittarius’ ruler, Jupiter, on December 9th. We may develop the discipline to put down our cell phones long enough to hear our soul speak when the Sun conjuncts Saturn on December 10th, bringing about opportunities to overcome fears of deconstructing dysfunctional or outmoded patterns.

My experience reading and listening to how Neptune is described by astrologers has, for the most part, not been a good one. In fact, as I write this article, I am quite concerned that an opportunity to expand our understanding of Neptune that is being provided by the present New Moon could be wasted with superficial, stereotypical and distorted views of this important archetypal force.
When I was a young student of astrology, the sign I had the most difficulty describing by far was the sign of Pisces. Many years later, as I teach students, the same difficulty often occurs, even when the student has the Sun, Moon or Ascendant in Pisces. In fact, some of them have an even greater problem than the other students. So, the first thing I say is that Pisces is often hard to describe in words. No one seems to argue with that, but it does remain frustrating and even a bit of a copout. Kimberly Maxwell and I have had many discussions about the nature of the sign of Pisces and you can read some of what we have come up with in her most recent AstroCast. And yet, it is fair to ask why this sign is so hard to describe, even by those who have a first-hand experience of it?
This article could have just as easily been titled “The Power of Witnessing.” The concept is the same. It was Jiddu Krishnamurti who wrote the following quote: “To observe without evaluating is the highest form of ‘Intelligence’.” When I read that and began to explore it, the effects were like an explosion in my consciousness. First, he is completely redefining the nature of intelligence. Further he is turning it on its head.
Welcome to the Sher Institute of Astrology & Metaphysics! We are offering astrology, meditation and other spiritual classes at different levels of experience and knowledge as well as providing a variety of consultations in the Los Angeles area.
The nature of a "Mystery School", as this type of school has often been referred to in the past, is two-fold.
It is to present to the student a holistic approach that includes both physical and metaphysical models while simultaneously training that student to experience both higher states of consciousness along with the ability to receive and understand higher levels of information.Read More About the Sher Institute Here
