Beyond the Illusion
What does 2023 have in store for us? Astrologers Shannon Gill and Russ Von Ohlhausen are back to illuminate the pathway for this new year, sharing the key cosmic happenings for the first half of 2023. This year’s theme is Initiation! Are you ready? Highlights: Review of recent astrology aspects and how they play into the themes we’re moving into. “2023 is an existential rite of passage” How do the 3rd, 4th and 5th dimensional consciousnesses differ? January starts off a bit slow due to Mars and Mercury Retrogrades. Ask yourself, “Is your personal will aligned with the higher will?” What’s the gift of retrogrades? January 21st is the first new moon of the year. Shannon & Russ are hosting a special event, “Joy to the World” The Technology of Happiness at the Samadhi Pyramid. Drumroll, ladies and gentlemen……March is the BIG month! March 7th: Saturn shifts into Pisces for 2.5 yrs, ushering in the theme of Initiation. Clash of fantasy and reality. We’re creating the unification of groundedness (Saturn) to boundlessness (Pisces). How are we living in integrity to these higher principles - the spiritual laws and the natural laws? Pluto moves into Aquarius March 23rd - Are we entering the birth canal? Will we be splitting into two parallel realities? What happened last time Pluto changed signs in 2007/2008? What about previous times Pluto was in Aquarius? April 20 Total Solar Eclipse at 29 degrees Aries, squaring Pluto. Powerful intense energy. May 5th Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio Mercury Retrograde 4/21-5/14 in Taurus (resources, commodities, what we value) Mid year we shift nodal axis to Aries North Node and Libra South Node - the axis of self & other, relationships. Aries NN is “calling all spiritual warriors.” Jupiter moves into Taurus 5/16: creative projects, manifesting abundance, be aware of too much of a good thing The value of embracing the path of Harmony through Conflict (4th Ray) “The only warrior who can be trusted is one who has their heart open.” 7/22 - 9/3: Venus Retrograde in Leo.
