Forms of Herbal Remedies

Mother Mary – Mari of Basque

Long ago in a rugged mountain area between what is now Spain and France, I was worshiped as Mari, also known as Mari of Basque, Mari Urraca, Anbotoko Mari ("the lady of Anboto"), and Murumendiko Dama ("Lady of Murumendi"). From the beginning my mysteries were held sacred and passed from one Elder to another without change. Basque was and is today a paradise. Its terrain of low mountains, dense forest and heavy vegetation make it a safe haven from outsiders. Its small...

Introduction to Astrology

Horoscopos is Greek for "I watch that which is rising". So the word horoscope originally referred to the Ascendant, that is the point of the Zodiac rising over the horizon at the precise moment of your birth. However astrology teaches us that each of us is a complex and subtle blend of traits symbolized by all the planets, and where and how these traits operate is determined by the Ascendant. Cardinal Mode: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn - Cardinal signs initiate action....

Elements of Your Zodiac Sign

Fire Signs There are three Fire Signs; Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Fire signs embody the idea of “the spark of life”, the will to live and the primal energy that ignites and sustains all existence. Fire types tackle life in an uncomplicated way; confronting obstacles they meet head on, with almost child-like innocence. They can be disarmingly direct and honest, even when serving their own interests. Fire people need space to express themselves freely and spontaneously. They are direct, assertive and passionate...

Planets and their Influences

Our solar system that our astrology system is based upon consists of the Earth, The Sun, the Moon and eight other planets that revolve in a precise and ordered pattern. This pattern marks not only our days, but our seasons, our years and our lives. Because each entity in our solar system moves at a different speed, rate, separate path or orbit, the combinations of the placements of the planets are almost endless. At the moment of your birth, the...

Houses of the Zodiac

The astrological wheel, or mandala, is a map of the space surrounding us at the time of our birth. The wheel is divided into twelve sections called houses -- six houses in the sky above, six beneath the Earth below. These houses are numbered counterclockwise, starting with the 1st house and the direction east, on the left-hand side of the wheel. Planets in the heavens are placed on the chart wheel in the houses that correspond to where they actually...

Sign and House Polarities

There are six sign polarities in astrology –these are natural oppositions. Aries-Libra, Taurus-Scorpio, Gemini-Sagittarius, Cancer-Capricorn, Leo-Aquarius, and Virgo-Pisces. House polarities are 1st-7th, 2nd-8th, 3rd-9th, 4th-10th, 5th-11th, and 6th-12th. Although there are differences between houses and signs, we will study their relationships in house rulerships. Aries-Libra and 1st-7th House Polarity This is a relationship axis, where Aries (Fire/Cardinal) and the 1st house represent self/self-assertion and Libra (Air/Cardinal) and the second house represent other/compromise. People born with planets in both Aries and Libra or both the...
