The Woman Behind the Whale:
Priestess Azlan White is a Ritualist and lover of the divine awakening in all of us. She is an Astrologer, Archetypal Reverent, Urban Shaman and an environmental, social justice and telecommunications Activist. She cares deeply about the earth and all of her creatures, and is passionate about freeing people from ideas or beliefs that limit or obscure the beauty of their authentic, archetypal selves.
This passion and caring has taken many potent forms and expressions. In 2007, Azlan was appointed the Executive Director of Global Relief Resources, a nonprofit organization bringing fresh water resources to global relief situations and empowering women to end violence against women. The organization was a gift, arising out of her experience at the 2007 “Conference for Grassroots Organizers to End Female Genital Mutilation” in Nairobi, Kenya, in which Ms. White was guided to join with the women and girls of Africa in solidarity to shift deep patterns of violence against the feminine.
One third of the contribution for your astrological reading with Azlan goes toward Global Relief Resources’ work to build educational centers (safe houses) for girls in Africa and provide young women with scholarships and micro-loans to create the lives they choose.
Prior to stepping into the leadership of Global Relief Resources, Azlan worked for Bioneers for six years, giving her a solid education in environmental issues, the global social justice dilemma aOPPOSES MARS in Virgo at 6:24 pm, asking us once again to “take care of the details,” and work through frustrations and oppositions with care. This aspect also reminds us we are still in a truly “revolutionary time,” where MARS in Virgo, is called by Father PLUTO in Capricorn, to break down the old forms that are opposite to life. MOON goes into the VOID with this last aspect from Pisces. The MOON will be VOID all day tomorrow, until 6:48 pm pst. MERCURY OPPOSITE MARS tomorrow morning, with MOON in VOID, makes tomorrow an interesting and alchemical day–to be handled with care!
VENUS INCONJUNCT MARS at 8:25 pm pst is an awkward aspect between masculine and feminine. We can’t quite “see” each other. We have the ability to have faith in our “heart of hearts,” beyond what we can “see.” These awkward moments pass. Love, wherever it may feel lost, always returns in some form, as energy is only ever recreated, never gone.
This cycle can be the beginning of a humanity that more authentically stewards the things we love most in this world. We entered a new powerful cycle of creation, with the NEW MOON in Pisces CONJUNCT NEPTUNE yesterday. If there is anything that has felt stuck, or that we have felt we need to “let go of,” that we haven’t been able to let go of–this will be the lunar cycle in which we will be able to let go of all that does not serve our highest. It will dissolve in the river of life. Life loves us, sometimes more than we love ourselves, and, luckily, LIFE is in charge of the river. We can trust changes that are happening in the “bigger picture,” that they are part of a larger “divine plan,” that life itself is unfolding. We can set individual intentions and we can trust that the Goddess has not left her creations unattended! The “river” of life supports us wherever we go. We contribute good and bad ideas to the flow! This lunar cycle is one to let all the “bad ideas,” go, while the good ideas know, where to grow.
