2009 ASTROLOGY & TAROT COURSES

If you’ve always dreamed of learning astrology or tarot you may like to check out my 2009 courses. I’ve posted full details on the website where you can download a brochure or booking form. Just go to www.stellastarwoman.com or www.tarotforthejourney.com and follow the ‘Courses’ links.

ASTROLOGY

Astrology for Beginners will have you reading birth charts for friends and family by the end of the year, while Practical Chart Reading & Predictive Techniques is for more advanced students who really want to get to grips with the nuts and bolts of astrology.

The people are lovely and Stella is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but also witty and funny. I always look forward to my next class.

Stella’s teaching style is fun, relaxed, accessible and practical. I would recommend her for the hobbyist and also for those interested in a more professional future. You will have lots of fun and be left with lots to think about.

I feel my life is in balance with my chart and that has brought me much joy. I also have a greater awareness of partnerships and the course has taught me to be less judgemental and more accepting of others who are different from myself.

Stella’s extensive experience and knowledge, combined with an ability to understand and communicate how and where to look for the themes in a chart, helped to consolidate my years of study and practice and bring me to a place where I feel ready and confident to practise astrology and to call myself an Astrologer. Thank you so much Stella!

TAROT

Tap into Tarot will turn you into a confident and competent tarot reader – many students have gone on to work professionally after completing my course. Here’s what the 2008 students had to say!

I have found Stella’s tarot course to be very informative and my understanding and confidence with the cards has really grown. I would highly recommend Stella’s course to anyone interested in studying tarot.

Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic course. It has really helped me get through some of my stuff……through a difficult year, but a great year as well!

Stella presents tarot in a logical and easy to understand way. Her classes are fun and enlightening. She always answers questions with easy explanations and examples. She has much psychological knowledge, so the readings are very meaningful.

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAGITTARIUS

From 22nd November to 21st December, the Sun travels through Sagittarius, an intuitive fire sign noted for its vision, adventurous nature and love of philosophy. Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac with keywords “I seek” and “I expand”. Those born under the sign of the Archer often struggle to integrate their animal nature with their more lofty human side. Sagittarians seek expansion on all levels, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual, and can usually be found travelling, studying and exploring life’s big issues. They love to share their wisdom and are often talented writers or teachers. At best they are intelligent, honest, generous and inspirational. Negatively, they can be tactless, self indulgent, coarse and hypocritical. In medical astrology, Sagittarius rules the liver, hips and thighs and sacral regions of the spine. When Sagittarians are out of balance they can suffer from sciatica, hip diseases, rheumatism and weight gain. The Sagittarian colours are purple and deep blue. Sagittarius’s greatest lessons are moderation, tact and learning to deliver what they promise.

How to handle a Sagittarian

Play it straight. Honesty really is the best policy with these frank individuals. They’re pretty smart, so they’ll notice straight away if you’re employing slippery tactics or trying to fool them. Just ask for what you want and you’ll probably get it…. and if you don’t they’ll be more than happy to explain why they are not falling in with your plans. Appeal to their sense of fairness. One word of warning! If you try to manipulate and control a Sagittarian or tell them what to do, they’ll kick up those horses’ hooves and you won’t see them for dust.

SEDUCING A SAGITTARIAN

TIPS FOR MEN

Impress her with tales of your trip to the Himalayas or your collection of travel books. Better still invite her to go backpacking with you. This woman usually loves travelling and exploring the world and not many can keep up with her. Make sure you're fit though, or she'll wear you out. Don't fence her in. She's unlikely to be looking to settle down for at least the next ten years so if you're smitten, tell her (Sagittarians like honesty) and ask her what she feels like doing. Then brace yourself for the response. Whatever it is you're bound to have a good time with this exciting woman!

TIPS FOR WOMEN

Sagittarius is the king of philosophy with ideas popping out of his brain at the speed of light. He loves a sparring partner in debate, so enjoy listening to his far flung ideas and then stun him with a few of your own. You'll be up until the small hours so lay in some beers and pizza. Does everything have to be an adventure? For the Sagittarian male, life without adventure is not worth living. Invite him on a road trip, a canoe trip, a day out at Water World - anything that gets the adrenaline flowing and both of you moving. He'll be happy enough to slow down later on....

ASTRO ENERGIES

A new US President. A new Sun-Mars cycle. And Pluto just beginning his 16 year journey through Capricorn. The times are changing and December is a pivotal month.

The dominant energies for the month are fire sign Sagittarius and earth sign Capricorn. One an optimistic, forward-looking and expansive energy and one a more conservative and practical force. Sagittarius provides vision and confidence, while Capricorn offers the discipline and power to manifest the vision. This pattern is mirrored by the current opposition between mighty Saturn and Uranus, which can manifest as a clash between old and new or the opportunity to combine the best of both worlds. As a collective symbol of this emerging energy, newly elected US President, Barack Obama straddles first and third worlds; black and white and tradition vs. progress. Towards the end of December, the energy shifts to Capricorn and Aquarius, but the theme remains the same.

The Saturn Uranus conflicts (old vs. new) is challenged throughout the month by a series of squares from planets in Sagittarius, beginning with communication planet Mercury followed by the Sun and Mars. This suggests that radical and confronting ideas will challenge the status quo and subsequently be embraced, as our vision of what is possible begins to change. We humans often find it difficult to think or see beyond our present circumstances or dilemma, so as the outer world shifts and changes, our tendency is to become fearful or to retreat. December offers us an opportunity to open our minds to new possibilities on all levels of existence.

Relationship planet heads into Aquarius on the 8th encouraging friendship and casual social gatherings, while on the 12th Mercury shifts into Capricorn helping us plan for the weeks ahead.

This month’s full moon is on the 13th in playful and sociable Gemini. What better time for a summer party or weekend away! Get together with friends and talk late into the night. Watch out for argument and conflict between the 12th and the 15th however, as the full moon forms a grand cross with Saturn, Mars and Uranus. This combination of planetary energies can herald frustration, delay, temper tantrums and accidents or other mishaps. Drive carefully, move slowly, watch your tongue and employ patience.

The yang energy reaches its height at the summer solstice on 21st December as the Sun enters Capricorn. This solstice is particularly powerful as the Sun and Pluto combine their energies to take us into the New Year.

The moon will be in fun-loving Sagittarius from Christmas Eve through to Boxing Day, with a more sober Capricorn new moon falling on the 27th. The new moon is a time for new beginnings, inner work and reflection, so ponder the events of the past year and spend some time alone or with your partner and family making practical New Year resolutions. This month’s new moon couples with passionate Mars and hard working Pluto, bringing the singleminded focus, intensity and drive needed to get projects off the ground. Avoid compulsive behaviour or self criticism.

There is an extraordinary planetary line-up in Capricorn and Aquarius from the 27th, right through to the New Year with no less than ten planets in this area of the zodiac. Again the theme of old vs. new emerges. These are signs of collective rather than personal energy, so we enter 2009 with the focus on international and group cooperation.

Happy festive season to all – I look forward to sharing my love of astrology with you in 2009.
