Tea With Louise: Meet Barbara Schaefer

Well hello guys and welcome back to Tea With Louise. With a new focus. Intending this to be monthly, I shall be interviewing people who have had life changing events in their lives and looking at the astrology around that time. And also generally getting to know them 🙂 Many will be entrepreneurs and fellow healers but this series is not intended to just be about introducing their services. Though if they resonate, that’s great! I am looking to see how astrology plays a part in big life changes. Some changes and transitions will be more dramatic than others but each one is very personal.My first guest is the fabulous Barbara Schaefer. Barbara experienced a near death experience that completely changed her life.I shall be interviewing her on Feb 26th at 1pm MST so mark your calendars. She will share her story and I shall look at what was happening in the astrology at that time and in relation to her natal chart. Please view the recording and leave us a comment!

Astrology, Death and Disillusionment

Astrology, Death and Disillusionment

I’m pissed, disillusioned and a little sad. I have thought and thought about writing this but I need to release it and give my thoughts. A well known Astrologer has twice made statements that I feel to be irresponsible and I feel the need to state how I would handle it. The first was that during a Pluto transit of the first house you could die. Well I have Pluto transiting my first house. Admittedly it’s there until I am 74 but I love my life and like the thought that I might be around for longer if I’m fit and healthy. But the words stuck. The second was that Pluto in the eighth house means that a partner will die. I also have Pluto in the eighth house. Now, I am not afraid of death. It’s a certainty for all of us until some scientist manages to come up with the secret to everlasting life. Which I am not sure I would even want anyway. It’s also obvious that many of us will have partners that die. Kind of a 50/50 chance that the partner will go first right? Okay mathematicians don’t bite me. There may be a statistic that proves which partner is likely to go first. But you get the picture! It’s my belief that making that flippant a statement is not the thing to do in a public forum or a personal reading. In a debate amongst astrologers it may be okay to discuss things like this as a possibility. Because that’s all they are. Pluto is deeper than that. I really don’t want to...

Hekate, Crossroads and the Age Of The Crone. How She Found Me

  Until recently I didn’t know Hekate exists as a Goddess or an Asteroid. The suddenly she is everywhere. I feel she is screaming to be heard and that I am one of the vessels to bring her forth into your consciousness. I feel that she is speaking through me and others and that now is her time.   I shall be talking more about this on my Radio Show tomorrow at 3pm EST, Cosmic Connections Radio w/ Louise Edington: The Age Of The Crone, but I am writing a series of articles to talk about Hekate and how she came into my life. And what I believe that means for you astrologically. Some of those articles will be on the Motherhouse of the Goddess website as guest articles but I shall let you know when and where 🙂 But let’s begin with the basics.   I was asked by the lovely ladies at the Motherhouse of The Goddess to join them for an interview and to lead the Goddess Full Moon Meditation for the Full Moon Eclipse in Libra on April 14th 2014 (the Eclipse on the 15th) and therefore I had to choose a Goddess to base the meditation around. You can listen to the archived show at Goddess Moon Meditation With Louise Edington and the Goddess Hekate    The Full Moon Eclipse was in Libra at 25 degrees so I sat down to think about which Goddess to use. I started to think of Goddesses that are associated with Libra. Aphrodite? Didn’t feel right. Goddess Venus? Still didn’t feel right. On this Eclipse we started the...

Muddling Through The Wonk

Well wonk is maybe not a word but it’s my new word. I was chatting with a friend about how the universe is so wonky right now with the Grand Cross of April 2014 building. And it feels perfect for the energies right now so wonk is my new word. Though the dictionary defines wonk as ‘a studious or hardworking person.’ so let’s say I have redefined wonk. Or use wonkiness if these things matter to you.   Now I want you all to just look at that first paragraph. For me the energy of it it feels like the current planetary energies. Redefining, breaking free of the accepted rules. A time of huge transformations and, well, wonk - or wonkiness.   Things feel challenging. There are a lot of global happenings and undercurrents but I want to talk more about the wonk within. The thing about the current energies is that they are bringing huge internal tensions. Coming up we have a Lunar Eclipse on the 15th April, the Cardinal Grand Cross is at it’s most exact on the 22nd April (though it dominates the whole month in reality) and a Solar Eclipse on the 29th April.   These energies have been rumbling and brewing since 2012 as the Pluto/Uranus square that forms the crux of this Grand Cross has been going on since then and this will be the fifth of seven exact squares between the two heavy hitters. I’m actually not going to bore you with all the astrology in this post. For more detail on that and what in means on a weekly basis you...
The Power of Scorpio

The Power of Scorpio

We probably all know by now that we are in Mercury Retrograde. In fact I wrote about it in Mercury Retrograde and First World Problems. In Scorpio this is powerful and deep and the Scorpio energy is about to get stronger so I thought it was time to write about the power of Scorpio generally and how to manage and benefit from this energy.   Later today (22nd October 2013) the sun will move into Scorpio shining it’s light on this powerful energy. We’ll have Sun, North Node of Fate, Saturn and Mercury all in this powerful water sign. And then, on Nov 3 we also have a Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees Scorpio. Added to this, Scorpios ruler Pluto is in a powerful square with Uranus in Aries. I’ll go more into what each of these means over time in my weekly video reports that I email out to my subscribers so if you want even more information about this and other upcoming energies sign up now over on the right!   As I said in my previous post we are being asked to have some really deep, deep reflection time right now. But reflect on what?   Enough of the astrology and more about the feeling because Scorpio IS a water sign and is ALL about feeling.   Scorpio energy is about deeply bonded relationships. It’s about power and powerlessness. It’s passion and resourcefulness. It’s intensity and magnetism. It’s manipulation and obsession. It’s jealousy and loyalty. Scorpio is deeply sensitive and intuitive. Scorpio is secretive and private.   Scorpio is the realm of the deep psyche, therapy,...
