Evolutionary Parenting Coaching
and Aquarian Education:
Reformation and Regeneration, Part 1
"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education"
**Cosmic Friends -
This week the Sun and Venus conjoin in Virgo and align in a very powerful Grand Earth Trine with Jupiter in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn, a formula for success through long-term strategizing and dedicated, disciplined Virgoan service.
With all the Earth element so activated this month, it is also an important time to investigate the nature of the structures, systems, and institutions which we often take for granted but, now with our intention and assistance, are transforming and regenerating.
I recently gave a lecture in Colorado Springs called Navigating 2012: the Uranus-Pluto square and the Emerging Aquarian Age.
The topic of education in the next decade arose, a subject, which I have passionately lectured and written about for a number of years. Over the next few newsletters, I will be addressing the importance of a shift away from standardized models of education towards instead more supportive languages and tools for helping our children reach their potential.
In the last few weeks, I have heard multiple shows on NPR addressing the challenges and obstacles to our current outdated educational models as well as the outrageous cost of higher education.
In July, I spoke with my 16 year-old second cousin about her frustrations with her high school, teachers, and school counselor––the lack of real challenge, nor the care and attention to the unique gifts of each student.
So these recent events have compelled me to send out a number of essays of the subject as well as to begin my Evolutionary Parenting, Revolutionary Education Coaching program
To generate interest and excitement about this program, I will be offering a FREE teleseminar on some basic techniques we can apply to conscious parenting and education. Thursday Sept. 8th at 7 pm. Pacific (details below). During this talk, I will specifically discuss the importance of the Moon and Mercury in child’s charts, as well as how we define generational motifs. If the excellence and enhancement of your child’s education compels you, please join us for the teleseminar and consider individual readings or the full coaching program for becoming the best parent or educator you can be.
Please feel free to froward this to parents and teachers who may be interested in this revolutionary model of education.
Most parents and educators seek a map for the most compassionate and efficient ways to raise the brilliant kids of today. Astrology provides that map absolutely necessary for a generation moving a million times faster than their parents, a generation whose brains and hearts are wired to live in a much more immersed technological paradigm. How do we not only reconnect these children to the cycles and beauty of nature, but honor the individual souls which are seeking to manifest their unique destinies at their highest potentials?
Because only a few of us who read this essay will have even grown up with the most primitive of personal computers, it may be very challenging for us to consider “bridging” the linguistic gulf with the next generations, digital natives, who will naturally be attracted to most technologies which will easily integrate with their bodies, accelerate their ability to connect with friends, or more efficiently learn and retain vaster amounts of information, such as neural enhancement and memory technologies.
During the last explosive contact of Uranus and Pluto in the 1960’s, a major generation gap occurred, whereby the generations had no language which could link their disparate realities. The technological gap of the 2010’s is repeating this theme of generational disconnection, and the requirements for a higher language to create intergenerational dialogues.
What is now required is an education which facilitates the fullest expression of the archetypal strengths of each student, while attempting to balance, yet not dwell upon, certain areas of weakness. For instance, attention by parents and teachers towards a child’s Mercury position reveals our children’s most efficient modalities of learning, for Mercury rules the mind––the primary perceptual tools we use to understand the world, the way we language our reality, and our mental development. Even elemental knowledge can be illuminating for the parent or teacher. For example, children with Mercury in a water sign learn most naturally when they are nurturing people, plants, animals, dolls. They need spacious environments in which to develop their empathy, compassion, and caregiving abilities. As well, they need to let their imagination roam free as their emotions and artistic sensitivities are highly attuned.
These Mercury in water kids will tend to shy away from competitive sports. Unlike the Mercury in Fire child, who thrives on action, performance, and adventure. If we put a child with Mercury in fire signs into this same ‘watery’ environment, this child will likely bully the other children, get frustrated with the soft, slow, and dreamy pace of things. To learn well, the Mercury in Fire kids need to be passionately creating, seeking, hunting, with lots of exercise and healthy competition.
Let us remember as well that Pluto was in Capricorn during the Great Reformation, when Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses on the Church walls, unveiling the deep corruption in the Catholic church. Undoubtedly, Pluto’s journey through Capricorn between 2008-2024 will demonstrate the fundamental reformations needed to the corrupt and disassociated systems of education in much of the world today.
Do we really want the next generation to have to take that statistics or calculus class we just could not understand why we were forced to in our pre-requisites? An Aquarian education will facilitate people of all ages studying passionately what excites and inspires them. Since the paradigms of reality are shifting so rapidly, especially under the caffeinated innovation of Uranus in Aries (2010-2018), education should teach students first how to learn to learn with the emerging technologies available to them....
