In this second part of a two-part series on Astrology, Catherine Potter talks about how to work with planetary cycles and gives an astrological overview for 2020.
My introduction in the early 80′s to yoga, meditation & astrology rekindled a childhood fascination with all things mystical and a journey began.
By weaving together Eastern and Western teachings, which included training in different branches of astrology, hypnotherapy and meditation, I was able to find ways to bring ancient practices into daily living and begin the process of grounding the often externalized idea of spirituality.
I became fascinated with the idea of bringing a practical approach to mystical topics and a reverence to daily routines. It continues to be an ongoing journey.
I first began my career as a professional astrologer in 1986 and added hypnotherapy in 1997. Combining the two modalities allowed me to create a counseling technique which helps a client gain a better understanding of their archetypal blueprint as well as help release blocks that inhibit the full expression of who they are.
I later spent time furthering my studies in meditation, yoga and ayurvedic teachings and ended up getting certified in Vedic studies.
In 1995 I began The Center College for Wholistic Studies which evolved in 2004 and I then became one of the founders and teachers at The Northern Star College of Mystical Studies.
Also in 1995 along with Brenda Mottram, I began Mosaic Magazine. We both loved the idea of creating a voice for the growing and thriving holistic community in Edmonton. After a year Brenda moved to the Uk and I continued to publish the magazine until 2004. Mosaic Magazine has continued to grow and flourish with its new owner and publisher.
A passion for uncovering one’s “naked voice” to coin a Chloe Goodchild phrase has had me continuing to write and publish articles and poetry as well as explore sound therapy. In 2019, I’ve expanded on this journey through the creation of the podcast, You, The Universe, The Holistic Mind. Along with many insightful guests, it allows me to talk about what a holistic mind can create in every walk of life.
