Ongoing: Soulful Community Circle at the Cunning Crow Apothecary in Seattle

Every other Wednesday from 7pm to 9pm, you’ll find me leading the Soulful Circle which offers a chance to join in community to deepen your cunning craft and awaken to the calling of Soul in community. In this circle, we will explore our connection with Soul, the unique qualities and attributes that align us with our inner calling, through the use of storytelling, communication with plant spirits, council sharing, shamanic drum journeys, guided meditation, systemic constellations, the Work That Reconnects and more!   Registration: $10-$20 (pay what you can – no one turned away for lack of funds), RSVP via erica@realimaginal.com; drop-ins are also welcome.

The Cunning Crow Apothecary, a fabulous resource for herbal remedies, self-care products & gifts, as well as wortcunning & ceremonial supplies, is located in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle at 9024 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle WA 98103.

As of this update, count every other Wednesday beginning with August 15, 2018 to find the Circle, or refer to the Cunning Crow Apothecary calendar for current meeting dates.

Saturn-Pluto and You: The birth contraction of 2018 – 2021
Dive into the Saturn-Pluto archetypal complex and learn about its challenging and more positive correlations throughout cultural history. We will identify current trends around the world that play into the upcoming alignment and ask ourselves: How might it manifest and how might we prepare for the potentials of this time period, both on a collective scale and a personal level? Includes a forecast for 2018 – 2021 identifying key dates, as well as a brief systemic constellation to provide a more experiential and embodied encounter with this time period.

An Uncommon Saturn Return: The Capricorn stellium generation 1988 – 1991

Registration for this online course is at this link

Based on results of a 2017 Saturn return survey of those born with Saturn-Uranus-Neptune conjunction in Capricorn, we’ll examine the unique experiences, challenges and maturation process of this generation. We will first discuss the individual experience and then reflect on collective trends. Individuals with this stellium often feel profound alienation from society, and indeed seem tasked with bringing very unusual perspectives and novel solutions to the crisis of modern civilization such that advice to find “appropriate social roles” at the Saturn return could be very misplaced. We will consider the differences between the archetypes of Rebel, Outsider or Orphan, and Pioneer in the context of the Capricorn stellium, and explore means of skillful engagement with those potentials, whether as a native, a counseling astrologer or a member of the native’s community.

We’ll also consider how the Saturn return of the last Uranus-Neptune world alignment represents a maturation point for the new spiritual impulses, democratic ideals and imaginative breakthroughs which were seeded in collective consciousness at that time. This generation is perhaps called to help us redefine the archetypes of Capricorn and Saturn, in terms of social belonging, status, community membership and the definition of boundaries, for example. What clues might this generation provide towards a generative response to evolutionary pressures faced by the wider population?
