The Mythology, psychology, and astrology of the re-emerging Feminine
New Edition with updated Ephemerides of 16 asteroids 1930-2050
This book shows how the discovery of the asteroids Ceres, Pallas Athena, Juno, and Vesta coincided with the shift of a woman. The creating, supporting, nurturing aspect held by the goddess Ceres, the universal mother, brings us to how we feel nurtured and how we function with our roles of mother-child. She embodies the principle of unconditional love. Pallas Athena is our Warrior Goddess, a woman in a man’s world, carrying the principle of creative intelligence. Vesta, our goddess of Focus and Commitment, is our High Priestess. Juno, the Queen of Heaven and Divine Consort, is our capacity for meaningful relationships. Understanding the themes that each goddess holds enriches our understanding of that function and expression in our lives.

Astrology and the Zodiac
The sign of the zodiac with which the stone is associated. There are so many opinions from so many gemologists, authors, astrologers, metaphysicians, and others providing their take on the assignment of the zodiac sign for each gemstone. The astrological signs and some of the vibrational matching gemstones listed here below. The information shared here is based on more than three decades of study with many different teachers. To determine the association, I look at the way the mineral grows, the color associations, chakra qualities, and the geometrics of the stone and how it relates to the qualities.
Keep in mind that you have more than one astrological influence in your personal natal chart. You are so much more than just your Sun sign. The placement of the planets in the houses and the zodiac signs all come together to create your personal blueprint of unlimited potential. It’s how you use the energies that is up to you.
