    Ok guys, it looks like we have a class. I’ll iron out the final details about dates and times as soon as I hear from Beth but here is the link to the book we’ll be using:

    [ame=”“]The Only Way To Learn About Tomorrow[/ame]

    I have the older edition but this book is the only one that explains Progressions, Directions, Solar and Lunar Returns and transits all in one. Our class will only focus on Progressions and Directions however since Return charts are a bit much for a 4 week class. Not to mention it will be a bit much for your brain. :love:

    My classes are now $90 for all new students but for my “oldies but goodies” it will be $75. Although this is going to *technically* be a 4 week class, we may have either a follow up chat online or add a 5th teleconference class if 4 lessons doesn’t leave us enough time to get everything in. The price won’t change if I decide to add another lesson.

    I still have not begun a class outline. When I have something on paper, I’ll send an email to all of you that you can go ahead and register. Probably sometime in the next 3 weeks.:wave:

    As you’ve all probably noticed, since the end of February my presence on the board and with the classes has seriously diminished. Since you are all my friends besides being students, I’d like to tell you a little bit about what has been happening in my life recently.

    To put it mildly, my entire world has been shattered. Very unpredictably, suddenly and with horrible shock, my husband of nine years demanded a separation.
    The details are ugly (aren’t they always?) and for the past several months he has still been living with me and the kids but 2 weeks ago he moved out of the house and I am now officially a single parent – devestated, heartbroken and having to be completely financially independent (with the exception of his child support).

    My husband wants a divorce and no matter how much I’ve resisted it, he’s made a complete break from me and I find myself at 33 years old having to completely rebuild my life and also pick up the pieces of a shattered family. My children are 7 and 5 and this has been a very traumatic experience for them.

    Uranus on my Descendant sure did come to life for me didn’t it folks? If you understood Progressions I’d be able to use my chart as an example for the divorce indicators. His chart has been so graphic about this time period that it was one of the times I thought he might die and leave me a young widow. Well, he didn’t die, but his love for me did and he also has become a completely different person. He’s no longer the Al I fell in love with and married and I am in mourning. I’m grieving the loss of my husband and partner, the destruction of my family, the security (financial and emotional) that I’ve enjoyed all these years) and the loss of a big part of my identity all at the same time.

    It’s grief, but a different type.

    Anyway, I wanted to apologize about the Progressions and Arcs class and let you know that since I am now living home alone with my children and they are in a major period of readjustment, I don’t know when I’ll be able to have this class. My kids are having nightmares and a lot of sleep issues and security issues and they need me there. I would hate to take a chance of having any of you pay for a class and then one of my kids interrupting it because they need me. I hope you all understand.

    I’d appreciate your prayers. For my healing and my children’s. I am also at a delicate point in my career as an astrologer because now I must be able to support myself doing this or else get a 9-5 job and if I have to do that I’m not sure what will happen to my being an astrologer. Pray for me that I can make it as an astrologer guys – it would break my heart if I had to give this up too. So far so good – it turns out I’ve made a couple of good freelance writing gigs – but it’s not enough yet to be a salary worth mentioning.

    Please know that as soon as I feel my kids are doing better and I can focus on teaching you a quality class I will continue teaching.

    And for all you astrology ites out there who want to look at my husband’s chart and see what happened to him and us, note Uranus opposing his Sun-Mars in the 12th and that Mars rules his 7th. The final hit was exact in early March and the eclipses of March hit his Sun-Mars as well.

    His birth data is 9/6/72 8:40 am Meadowbrook, PA. (Montgomery County)

    There were lots of 12th house activity and skeletons revealed. Among them the fact that for the past 3+ years he has been reading all my computer correspondence and had a high tech surveillance system installed to moniter every single keystroke.

    He was extremely paranoid that I would have an affair and that I would want to be with someone in my field (this never happened, I can assure you!) My telephone may have been bugged as well but I’ll never know for sure.

    It’s funny how you can love someone and feel completely secure with them only to have it ripped away from you overnight and be revealed as a complete false sense of security isn’t it? He actually believes I never truly loved him – that it was all an illusion. It’s beyond sad but I have to be strong for my children because they are the ones I get to show the meaning of unconditional love to now.

    I love all of you and I am so grateful for each and every one of you being a part of my life and personal soul growth. :love:

    (((Maria))) –

    I am so saddened by your situation. Many thoughts, prayers, and healing energy going out to you and your children.:candle: :musicnote :candle: Also prayers for abundance and a successful career as an astrologer.:candle:

    We will always be your students and will be here when our teacher is ready.:hearts:

    I have a suggestion to help your kids sleep. Try lavender oil in a nightlight or just a plug-in without the lights. You can buy it near the air fresheners in the supermarket for a few dollars. It has been the ONLY thing that has helped my daughter sleep through the night and stop having night terrors. Hope it helps!

    Many blessings, love, and hugs to you across the miles:love:

    Beth that sounds like a great idea! I will try it. What I’ve been doing that works on some nights is this: I have a good friend who is really into the healing power of crystals and she gave me two jade stones awhile back. They are for many purposes but one of the properties of jade is as a dream stone.

    I gave one to each of my kids and told them that they are magic stones that help them have only sweet dreams. They love them! It has helped my daughter alot but my son wants to sleep in my bed with the crystal. I am being so senstive right now to him because I sense his feelings of abandoment and insecurity and I want to reassure him that I will always be there for him.

    My friend is also getting the kids dreamcatchers and I think all these tricks together are sure to help.

    And Beth, I hope you got my email thanking you for your beautiful card and generous heart – you are an amazing lady!!! :hearts:

    maria V

    I can’t thank you all enough for your prayers and understanding. Every day feels a little different right now but I can say for sure that you all continue to give me hope and inspiration. I believe I’m going through this for a reason and that reason will be revealed to me in time.

    The waiting for enlightenment and the heartache is the hard part.

    Watching my kids suffer is another story – that is just the most cruel torture any mother could ever endure. And no matter what I do I can’t take their pain or scars away.

    Anyway, you guys are all so beautiful. I can’t wait to see each of you again someday (and meet some of you for the first time in person) and hug you till your guts pop out!:love:

    I’m so glad you shared this with all of us. You have a ton of support from the women here (and the men too) and you must know that you are never alone. There is so many people here willing to listen, willing to lend you support.

    Prayers ascending for you, and your your children :rosary: :hearts: :rosary: I see you all healed, wiser and stronger than ever before and happily living together in harmony and joy.


    ((((((((((((((((Maria))))))))))))):candle: :candle:
    I am sending you and your children Reiki/Universal energy if that is alright. Prayers of comfort and strength as well. We love you so much, Maria, If you need anything, don’t ever hesitate to ask!:rosary:

    Jeannie, thank you! I appreciate that very much. Healing is in order for all of us now and that’s what I’m trying to focus on as my top priority.:love:

    Pam, thank you too – for your love and friendship. You’ve helped me alot over these past few months and I’ll never forget it.

    My girlfriend Angela got the kids the most gorgeous dream catchers and handpicked each of them a special sack of crystals specifically designed for the kids to know their angels are with them and for healing, peace and happiness. The kids loved it and haven’t crawled into bed with me or had a nightmare since Saturday. Then she brought over a bottle of really expensive champagne for she and I to drink after the kids went to bed. It was a good night for all of us.

    I’m so grateful that I’m getting more steady clients now than ever before and I have some exciting prospects with my new boss who lives in Australia (the owner of He plans on giving me a ton of work in the near future. He is about to launch a perfume line called Perfume Zodiac (I tease him that he stole my idea because I thought of the exact same thing about a year and a half ago! But he got the investors and beat me to the punch. It’s NO accident that I met this man. He’s been an absolute Godsend) and has alot of other things going on with his astrology business that will likely lead to his needing to open up a US office. If (I mean WHEN) this happens, he wants me to be the US rep. This could be an amazing opportunity for me (it’s still at least 1-2 years down the road though).

    When my head clears I really want to contact that agent again about my book. I’ve been out of contact with her since all my drama began in February and I want to manifest this opportunity. Now it will be even more challenging to find time to write a book than ever (I’m writing an average of 8,000 words per week with my freelance work already!) but I want to be published in print.

    I’ve had to take a temporary leave from my Master’s Degree course but it’s not going to be forever.

    My sister and neices and nephew are coming from Florida to spend 3 weeks with me and the kids next week and I’m looking forward to some family time. It will be great for my kids. My brother also just found out that he and his wife are expecting their first child so there are positive things coming all around – I know this with all my heart.


    Maria –
    You know I don’t read the message boards often and now I’m catching up tonight. I am so sorry to hear what you are going through. You are a beautiful person and give of yourself so freely. You do not deserve this.

    You are one of the most optimistic and enthusiastic people I know — and things will turn around for you. You will continue with astrology – you must!!!!

    Hugs to your children. Enjoy your family visit (they might be gone by now!) and I’m looking forward to doing a feng shui clearing and blessing sometime soon :yinyang2:

    Deep Breath….


    :tissue: Maria, I am so sorry to hear what’s been going on in your life recently. You are such a strong, kind and wonderful person, and I’ll be praying with all my heart that you and your children get through this even stronger than you were before. :hearts: I hope every day it gets a little better for you and pray that you never decide to give up astrology.

    A ton of love your way,


    I don’t know what drew me to this thread, Maria, as I’m not qualified to take your class, but then saw that the topic has changed into something quite different and sad.

    There are no words that can make your situation ‘go away’, but perhaps it can ease some small amount of tension knowing that the hearts and prayers of your family of friends, here, go out to you and your kids. Bless you for the sharing and don’t hesitate to ask for help from those close to you. They want to help, they just don’t know how.

    Crystal and Don, thank you so much for your prayers and words of encouragement and support! :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:
