Diotima

Diotima

Diotima Mantineia began studying astrology in 1968, taking classes from Zoltan Mason in New York City. For the next 22 years, she practiced astrology only for herself and her friends, continuing her studies while watching an increasingly humanistic, psychologically oriented, modern astrology blossom through the work of leading astrologers such as Noel Tyl, Liz Greene, Rob Hand, Marion March, Stephen Arroyo and Howard Sasportas. In 1986, Diotima began her study of Wicca and started reading Tarot, discovering that she is a gifted intuitive. In 1991, she began practicing both astrology and Tarot professionally. She majored in plant and soil science both in college and grad school, and grows much of her own food and "materia magica" on her land in the mountains of western North Carolina. Diotima’s personal spiritual path is rooted in the Western mystery traditions, the principles of Yoga, and a profound connection with the natural world. Wicca gives structure to her spiritual journey, and she utilizes shamanic practices for healing and to live in harmony with Nature. Over 15 years of studying Chinese martial arts has given her a deep appreciation of Taoist thought which has strongly influenced her magical and personal philosophy. You can find her at www.uraniaswell.com

Life will feel a little (or a lot) frantic, unstable, and disjointed this month, with a New Moon in the restless, sensitive sign of Gemini, and all sorts of other change-inducing planetary hijinks happening. People are more sensitive than usual to their environment, and emotions are running strong. This chart is in effect for the month ahead.

Are you ready for some change? Yeah, me too. Which is good, because when Uranus moves from one sign to the next, changes are imminent, both on a personal and global level. With Uranus involved, we can expect events that are sudden, surprising, and often extreme. If we understand the underlying energies that are in play, we can, to some degree, consciously direct them to the better outcomes.

The archetypes of the Warrior, the Pioneer, and the Hunter are highlighted this month by the Aries New Moon. In addition, three powerful planets in Capricorn will highlight the archetypes of the Builder, the Ruler (read: any governing authority), and the Elder.  It’s an active chart that presages shocks, surprises, profound shifts and changes in authority structures, extreme risk-taking, and conflicting agendas.

Water and Fire are the predominant Elements in the month ahead. They’ll be creating a lot of steam, which will be driving an engine of practical matters, business, and government. Emotions and tempers will be hanging out very near the surface. Fortunately, empathy and intuitive insights will also be strengthened — we’ll have need of them, as interpersonal relationships are likely to be a bit strained.
