Difference Between Tropical and Sidereal Zodiac
When you look up at night. The zodical constellations along the ecliptic plane (apparent path of the sun in our sky), you are observing the sidereal zodiac. The fixed stars of the constellations are the backdrop of the sidereal zodiac.
The planetary ingresses in Planet Data are the tropical zodiac. The tropical zodiac aligns with the earth's seasons. (For more information read my article Celestial Mechanics
) This is the zodiac that most western astrologers use because it connects us to the life cycles of nature.
Julene's Sky Watch Column appears as a regular feature in The Mountain Astrologer
. It is a guide to locating the planets in the night sky. The articles are fablous. Subscribe, you'll love it!
If you want to find all the visible planets in the sky this month, visit the IAA library
where I post sky maps of the planets in the section called Mountain Astrologer Sky Maps
Astrology Classes with Julene Packer-Louis
As usual I will be teaching two classes in the diploma module:
DPL01-Forecasting: Pinpointing Major Themes
Timing & Client Preparation
|Dear Friends, |
This has certainly been a busy summer. I've been blessed to be quite booked with classes, consultations, lectures and promoting IAA's Breaking Down the Border's
conference. We had an excellent video created for us by Bill McClure. It is like a movie trailer for the conference
. I hope you can find 5 spare minutes to watch it.
IAA's Media Director, Linda Furiate, who is a publicity coordinator for Breaking Down the Borders
has done interviews via Skype with some of the presenters that will be speaking at our conference. I even made a video myself and hope to make a few more. Visit the astrologyconference youtube chanel
Aside from the astrology, my husband and I have been busy at home too. We painted our kitchen and dining room. We've been tending to our garden and enjoying nature's bounty of beans, squashes, cucumbers, tomatoes & peppers. He got a new truck, because I wrecked his old one. It was on June 28th and as I look back on what I wrote for that week in last month's Cancer Horoscope column
I find "Be careful what you ask for you just might get it." I was wishing we didn't have that car payment. We did find a low milage, beautiful used truck we could pay cash for, but still! Ask and the universe delivers.
On the left you'll find upcoming events for August, information on where to find the planets in the night sky, and more. Below you'll find this month's Leo Horoscope column, infomation on obtaining an astrology consultation, and astrology reports.
Enjoy the rest of the dog days of summer (heralded in by the helical rising of Sirius, the alpha star in Canus Major, Orion's lead hunting dog on July 28th) as you get the kids ready to go back to school. My kids go back on Tuesday Aug 24th.
Astrology Consultations with Julene
THIS MONTH'S SPECIAL
$60 Relationship Consultation
With Saturn, Mars & Venus all entering Libra this month, I'm offering a discounted rate on my Relationship consultation. This consult does not compare your chart to some else's. Instead it is all about you. The Sun is in Leo, so why not?
The focus is on your patterns of relating, answering the question of why you attract the type of people or situations that you do. You know the same issues you seem to encounter with every romantic interest, boss or co-worker. The "oh not this again!" If this happens to you, you will benefit from this consult. We'll work to determine what belief or past experiecne is behind the scenerio that gets repeated over and over again. Then we'll come up with ways to change that program to attract the type of relationship you want. I can also help you discover why your current relationship is bringing certain issues to light for resolve at this time. With that knowledge, some powerful changes can take place to bring you closer together as your relationship blossoms into something better and you understand the higher purpose of why you are together.
For more information on this consulation and other consultations I provide visit my website
All consultations will take place over the phone and include a MP3 recording of your consultation sent electronically. If you live near Cleveland, Ohio we can meet in person. You can order via Pay Pal through my website
, please include a phone number or email address where I can reach you to schedule your appointment and collect the necessary information I need to prepare for your appointment. If you prefer to pay by check, contact me
for information on where to mail your check.
Horoscope for the Month of Leo
July 23 - Aug 22
The sun entered Leo on July 22nd at 6:21 P.M. EDT. When the sun is in Leo it is a great month to let your creative juices flow, focus on a pet project you've been thinking about getting around to and enjoy putting it together. It's also a time to remember to have fun and to let your inner child play.
Saturn has moved into Libra tightening up the cardinal T-square with Jupiter and Uranus opposing Saturn from Aries and Pluto squaring the three from Capricorn. Where you've felt stuck with a challenging situation, things should start to break free and get moving along. If you've been feeling like you have to pay the piper every time you turn around, know that he's about paid off. The important thing is the lesson the universe is asking you take away from this time - responsibility and work ethic.
All three outer planets are retrograde this month. There are collective issues that will come to fore that challenge us to awaken and transform. When Jupiter stations retrograde this month we will likely be faced with where we have excesses, and how to better manage our resources so we are giving back as much as we taking from our planet. When Mercury goes retrograde later this month, we may just come up with some practical ideas on how to do that. Mars & Venus join the cardinal T-Square this month and the collective issues can become echoed in our personal lives or we may feel like we are ready to take up a cause or some action to help bring harmony into our own sphere of influence.
Week of August 2 - 8
The Moon begins its last quarter phase on Tuesday. Also Jupiter squares Pluto on Tuesday. Mars opposes Jupiter and square Pluto on Wednesday. If you've bitten off more than you can chew you will know it. To the extent that you seem to be having a crisis in consciousness from being overwhelmed, ask for help and have faith that others will do a good job even if they don't do it exactly the way you would. On Friday Venus enters Libra and joins the cardinal convergence party. Venus opposes Uranus on Saturday and conjoins Saturn on Sunday. By this time Mars has moved on and Venus come in to soothe the ruffled feathers. This weekend spend time one on one time with a loved one or best friend. Go to the salon, try out that new restaurant, or that new thrift shop. Sunday is a good day to find deals on the clearance racks.
