THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL... OUR PLUTO TRANSITS
Pluto, the most powerful of the trans-personal planets, has a big job to do when it takes on the human personality. Pluto transits arouse an identity crisis, the stories we tell ourselves must give way to deeper truths about our being. Something must break down in the process.
If managed with enough self-honesty, these long, slow entries into the Underworld of the Self can reveal to us power we didn’t know we possessed. Although these inner resources were there from birth, the Pluto transit is our signal that it's time to integrate them.

JULIE DAY TOPIC TBA
A Qualified Astrologer, member of the Federation of Australian Astrologers and the Association of Professional Astrologers I have built a strong clientele over the last 15 years in Brisbane and beyond.
During this time I set up the Centre for Spiritual Growth and began teaching classes from early to advanced levels taking students through these various stages to sit for the 4 examinations to qualify as an astrologer if you so chose.
I believe with support and encouragement we can understand ourselves so much better through the practice of astrology. We can change our perceptions, the way we direct our thoughts, opening our spirit to a more positive and purposeful energy. It is an exciting journey into mind, body and soul.
I have a holistic approach to astrology, exploring karmic issues and emotional blockages that lead to physical ailments. When we understand the problems we create and change our behaviour and the exchange of energy between others, then our life takes on a whole new meaning.
In my journey into the spiritual world I have taken many paths into healing modalities in order to improve my welfare and understanding. Each avenue afforded me more knowledge and awareness of the intrinsic connection that each and every person has with another.
We are all searching for peace and harmony, fulfilment, love and enjoyment. Finding the direction your spirit has chosen you to embrace this lifetime and how to fulfil your journey is so important to us all.
I give guidance in
- Development of personal strengths
- Career direction
- Behavioural problems
- Difficulties with children
- Relationship issues
- Timing of events
- Overview of the year at each birthday
I also hold monthly meetings in Voice Dialogue, a wonderful way of interacting with sub-personalities that are within us all and how they operate in our lives, bringing them to awareness and resolving issues.
Centre for Spiritual Growth Please contact me on 3871 1162 for further information on courses and for personal and private consultations

ANNABELLE CHAMBERS - SOLAR ARC

SEDNA CONSCIOUSNESS, THE SOUL'S PATH OF DESTINY
Alan draws the connection with the centaur, Pholus, because they both have a 'space weathering' process that turns the surface of each red, so in my mind they both have to do with growth. And I draw the connection with Ceres, because they both likely have internal oceans, so they both speak of a nurturing process. And with Saturn, because their daily rate of spin is the same, so they have the same day to day practical perspective and both speak of limits. Sedna is of course the esoteric new outer limit of the solar system.
I'm proposing that Sedna is in fact the higher octave of Ceres, where the spiritual security and sense of place on Planet Earth with Ceres, is transmuted into a transpersonal nurturing of our spirituality and sense of place in the evolutionary cycle with Sedna. I also push back a little on all the victimisation interpretations of the planet that come from the myth and look a little at Sedna and illness.
I'm using all of the 19 planets and dwarf planets in my analysis, as well as 3 asteroids, 4 centaurs, and the chart points. I’m interpreting them using lots of examples and the three level approach that Dane Rudyar pioneered, because the energy of Sedna acts very differently for those unconscious of the energy, for those on a spiritual path, and for those with a developed spiritual consciousness.
ALAN CLAY is a 62 year old astrologer from New Zealand, who is also an award winning film director and novelist. For over 30 years Alan has also conducted a deep research into people, through his extensive work as a clown teacher. He is now researching a book on Sedna, the new outer limit of the Solar System, which includes comprehensive aspect analysis using all the new dwarf planets, to be launched at the United Astrology Conference in Chicago next May. Alan will also be lecturing on Sedna at the State of The Art Astrology Conference in New York State in October 2018. www.sednaconsciousness.com
