Ray Influences for 9 January 2018

Because esoteric astrology is more concerned with a soul-centered focus in lieu of the traditional personality focus of most astrological charts, I’ve found that my attention is drawn more to underlying vibrational influences than to specific planetary ones. I like thinking about foundational influences and my Solar Fire software gives me the ability to look […]

Staying True To Our Values ~ Human Design Transits for 30 November 2017

Stepping Aside has a Facebook page. It’s one that I host off of my own personal page and I’ve begun posting information about daily planetary transits from a Human Design perspective.

Energetic Channels And Strategy

When we look at a Human Design bodygram or chart we see nine flow-chart style symbols connected by channels resembling a cross between the Tree of Life and the Chakras.

A New Moon in Scorpio ~ Finding Sacred Space

Tomorrow’s New Moon transits in Scorpio (9° Sco 25′ 29″) in the Ninth House. Emotions will be heightened and we take pleasure at the beauty that surrounds us.

Power and Knowing ~ Human Design Channels for 18 October 2016

  It’s been a while since I did a Human Design post, and I thought I would incorporate some I Ching cards into today’s transits. I like looking at channels that are either active in my natal bodygram, or result from transiting planets. As the planets move about in the sky, the six lines on […]

Jupiter in Libra: Inner and Outer Expansion

Jupiter has an expansive effect on us. In my chart, Jupiter is transiting Libra at 0° Lib 02′ and is beginning a journey that will last for approximately one year.

Dark Moon Influences: Runes and Thoth Tarot

  Ehwaz, Dagaz, and Uruz align with three cards from the Thoth tarot, the Prince of Disks, the 7 of Wands, and Adjustment. Apologies for not posting this yesterday to honor the Dark Moon.

Integrity, Self-Sabotage, and Unsustainable Choices: Human Design Transits for 18 July 2016

Today’s transits suggest that we may be sabotaging our own actions, in turn creating an unsustainable situation for ourselves and others. In Human Design, the 64 Gates represent the 64 hexagrams or guas from the I Ching. Even numbered lines represent Yang or creative/projective energies, and odd numbered lines represent Yin or receptive energies. Six of today’s transiting […]

In Presence, We See Past Illusion

Before I begin, I wanted to send blessings of love and healing to all of my LGBT friends and family. It’s sometimes in tragedy that we understand how important and necessary we are to each other. We cannot lose our love and compassion because both will see us through these impossible moments that happen all […]

From my natal chart the Channels of Power, Awareness, Mating, and The Alpha are active. Transiting Channels include The Brain Wave, The Wavelength (a new one for me), […]
