Dear Reader,
These are powerful times of great change, so I'm offering a brand-new course on Whole Life Timings you can read about below, and am excited to delve into this powerful teaching to help someone grasp the soul timings of their whole life.

In two weeks we launch our sixth Chart Study course, a 3-year program to learn to read birth charts the magical and soulful way I do. These circles have formed lifelong bonds, and produced much laughter and tears as I captain a new group of students through the multidimensional catacombs of love, sex, life, death, reincarnation and astrology. The class is open to all. Let us know if you're interested in joining us.

Love Your Life Out

5 Retrogrades and the Leap of the Tiger

By Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax
Putney Mountain,Vermont
September is the only entire month I can recall with Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto all retrograde at the same time.

Retrograde planets increase the gravitational pull of the heaviness of life, forcing us down, and making us want to push back.
Jupiter and Saturn provide life's meaning. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto direct the most powerful cosmic forces. These five planets getting weighed down now in the midst of the Year of the Tiger is like a crouching tiger getting ready to leap.
Art by Lobsang Melendez Ahuanari
It would be easy to overreact and use tiger power to snap at things that just irritate you but aren't worth leaping at. If you save your leaps for whatever may be blocking the bright future your soul came here to create, September's retrogrades will aim your tigerishness in the right direction. Regardless of what year you were born, this year the tiger in you is getting ready for one of its greatest leaps.

Art by Michael Divine
Now that mainstream media has become corporatized into one huge ad for Big Pharma and a scandal sheet feeding on celebrity news porn, the early stages of revolution are at hand, demanding a news of the soul that breaks down the barriers between you and yourself.

With the Jack of the Soul crammed down into its retrograde box this month, there's added impetus for you springing into the love and glory you're made of.

Whole Life Timings
Part 1 & 2

Begins Sept 21

The oracular feature that makes astrology readings different from psychic readings, tarot and rune readings is timing cycles. Soul Level Astrology utilizes the traditional astrology timings of progressions and transits, and adds in Dharmic Currents, which are seasons of the soul, that depict the path of least resistance through the years.

The shape of a single human life takes on vivid depth of meaning when looked at through the lens of whole life timings, which combine the major trends and intersecting themes of Dharmic Currents, progressions and transits, to paint a complex portrait of your entire development (framed from birth through age 100). 

Mark will create a visual graph of your whole life timings, which will be shared in class and interpreted for you to learn which signs are amplified through certain decades, and which planetary aspects guide the flow of your seasons of the soul. The autumn semester will introduce you to the big picture that the spring semester will go deeper into.
