Lecture at the Astrological Society of Austin, March, 2012

Essene Retreat Conf Lectures: Embracing Self.

October 12, 2012

This annual conference has an uncanny ability to set a theme that the universe conspires to follow in the entire two-day meeting.  The presenter and attendants all seem to leave ego issues at home, and the result is an intimate group who participates together in a beautiful growth experience.

I gave a lecture in two parts:  The first was Embracing Self, and the second wasRemoving Impediments.

It’s here–the second exact (degree, minute, second) square of Uranus and Pluto.  It’s this month.  There’s no point in telling you the exact day (it’s the 19th), as the degrees will be square all month, creating frustration, the need for freedom, being faced with implacable power or events we can’t control.  Expect sudden breakouts and breakthroughs, including earthquakes, explosions of anger, and possibly violence on the world scene.  This is the second of seven exact squares we’ll experience through 2015.  The relief of long-desired changes won’t really show up til after that.On the local front, we’ve got four news items to share here.1. An interview with me from Chuck and Karen Robison of What If It Really Works.  As usual, their questions are probing and demanding.  Yes, it’s about my new book, Vedic Secrets to Happiness. While you’re there DO NOT MISS their amazing interviews with Bruce Lipton, Joseph Chilton Pierce, John Huston, Dean Radin, the producers of the movie Thrive, and other amazing, brilliant and creative thinkers.

2. Art Show opening.  The Diocese of Austin will have a party on Sept. 13, but the show will be up til February.  I have several tapestries in this show that represent the visions of Hildegard of Bingen (who was recently canonized by the Catholic Church and will become the 34th person EVER given the title “Doctor of the Church” this October).

3. Great Esoteric Conference in CA.  I’ll be speaking.  You are invited!

4. More Sweet Words to encourage you to call me for a consultation!

5. THE SMILE!  I visited my nephew (and his parents!) this month.  Here’s my favorite pic!

VIDEO Anne’s lecture, Who Are We Becoming

February 5, 2012

I’m excited to have video, thanks to Bob Price of Austin’s IONS and INACS.   This way you’ll be able to see the powerpoints as well as hear the lecture.

Here’s the link to the video on this site!

Vedic View of 2012

January 31, 2012

This is a short audio section (26 minutes) of my part of a panel presentation for the January 2012 meeting of Austin’s astrological society.  It starts with a view of 2012 strictly from the vedic perspective, and ends with my commentary on how to prepare for the energy changes, based on tropical astrology (the Great Saturn/Neptune Divorce).


Lecture: Who Are We Becoming

January 12, 2012

Here’s the audio to the lecture I gave on Jan 10 for the Austin IONS group.   Soon I’ll be able to add a link to a video of the session, which includes being able to see the powerpoint.  But if you’ve got an mp3 player and want to listen as you go about your life, here’s the spot.

Subject:  Who Are We Becoming…   A Symphony of Symbols.

We are nested within cycles of time.  In addition to the larger patterns, we are also subject to the energy fields of shorter-term cycles, and these all interact to create the conditions of our times.   How will it affect you?  How will you affect our times?   Listen here!

2. Anne, Lecture: Dancing With Transcendance,  in Austin.  Podcast available now.
1. REMINDER:  Class Starts July 6:  Cherry-Picking Predictive Techniques…   email me for location!
3.  July 1 Eclipse  It’s a brand new eclipse cycle!

1. Don’t Forget!!!!
Summer School Astrology Class:
Cherry-Picking Predictive Techniques
7 Weeks, beginning Wed, July 6, 6:30-8:30 pm

I’m a “cherry-picker”.  I use lots of techniques, thanks to computer-generated charts, and I pick up the most blatant and obvious clues from each technique.  By comparing the blatant clues from myriad techniques, you can get a very good idea of upcoming energy patterns, and often, details of specific events, as well.   What’s more, it makes it EASY to use predictive techniques.  We’re looking for the obvious here!

In this class we’ll use YOUR charts to demonstrate and illustrate the techniques.

Techniques: Transits, Progressions, Solar and Lunar Returns, Graphic Ephemerides, Sabian Symbols, Dasas, and Saturn/Jupiter aspects (also Ingresses, Retrogrades, Eclipses, Pre-Natal eclipses).


Come to class!  Expand, and fine-tune your tools for seeing into the future.  Contact me HERE for location and directions.


$15/class suggested  OR come anyway.   I’d rather have “comp” students than no students.  I love teaching and welcome all levels of knowledge and income!

2. Austin Lecture: “Dancing with Transcendance: Music from the Outer Planets” Podcast from Anne Beversdorf

I’m really excited about this lecture because of my new explanation of Neptune:  How is this planet different NOW than when it was discovered?  How is that affecting us?   (Pretty powerfully).

The “outer planets” are often called the “transcendental planets”.  These planets mediate between the fixed fate of the material world and the gods’ (or OUR) abilities to negotiate everyday reality:  but only if you know their dances and don’t get caught in their traps.

The outer planets are highly active in the sky these days: they are making many hard aspects and are changing signs, meaning, of course, that all of us are feeling their influence.   The wiser we are in dealing with these dance partners, the better the future we invite.  Listen Here.

3.  July 1st Eclipse

Eclipses come in cycles, called Saros Series.  And July 1st is a NEW eclipse cycle!  This eclipse sets the tone for every new eclipse in this cycle for the next 1200 years!    (read more)

This is a profound and powerful eclipse chart.  The Sun and Moon are in highly challenging relationship with the Biggie planets–meaning those that have been wreaking havoc and causing change all over the earth these last few years, namely Pluto, Uranus and Saturn.  Overall, the eclipse represents huge generational endeavors, and active world stress.  Bernadette Brady says this eclipse brings the end of long struggles and eclipse midpoints involving Neptune and Jupiter bring difficult issues to gentle conclusions.  We can hope so.

This eclipse also happens among fixed stars which ancient astrologers associate with the death of a king.  Countdown for Qaddafi?

New IONS Podcast

Gene Keiffer IONS/0709

August 9, 2009


The Evolutionary Energy Shifting our Lives Consciously? Or Not?

The podcast of the IONS meeting and live conversation with Gene Keiffer is here, with background information below.

Chuck and Karen Robison, of What If It Works Internet Radio,  conduct a telephone interview with Mystery School Teacher Gene Kieffer, author of The Secret Teachings: Unveiling the Luminous Sun Within who is a Gopi Krishna scholar.

Chuck and Karen Robison, a Church of Religious Science practitioner and spiritual guide, and authors of the Quantum Conspiracy, and presenters at the IONS Austin Chapter.  They will initially share an interview, with Gene Kieffer, an internationally published author and president of the Kundalini Research Foundation, who worked with Gopi Krishna, who authored: Kundalini: the evolutionary energy in man. Since the 1960’s, Kieffer has been recognized as an authorized scholar of this Indian mystical adept.  Gopi Krishna’s pioneering writing on the raising of the kundalini energies and expanding of consciousness and Kieffer’s have each been recognized as a master spiritual teacher and researcher.

An interview with Gene Kieffer is available on What If It Really Works Radio, accessed at website: The assembled IONS audience at the meeting was invited to ask questions of Gene Kieffer, via telephone, with Chuck and Karen Robison as hosts.

Questions:We are going through what is called a historically significant evolutionary shift in consciousness. Some are calling it the paradigm shift, others going beyond the turn of the millennium, so we call on the wisdom of the mystics to guide us.I. What are the main characteristics of the shift that is occurring and how can we prepare to live through this historic change, which is proving difficult for some……..?

II. Some people are having unusual experiences, and their perceptions of life are shifting rapidly and even expanding…  Sometimes these people have trouble talking with others about their expanding consciousness moments, since their shifts are do deeply personal?  What recommendations do you have for such people?

III. Once someone accesses a wider field of knowing, not just knowledge, but deeper and wider levels of knowing, such as accurate intuition, pain can come with that knowingness?   As one integrates these new levels of knowing, how does one live with expanded consciousness and what responsibility do they have to others to share that new level of knowing with others?

IV.  How do we all evolve in such a way that we can all celebrate life, dance, sing, pray and feast together, with everyone’s needs met and everyone being happy together?

Astro-Timing Right Now

Explore the Cosmos!

We are in the middle of an intense planetary combination: The astrology of May 29-30 is that Neptune and Chiron station at 26 Aquarius, exactly conjunct Jupiter and square Mercury.  This is a powerfully disillusioning pattern that may pull the curtain back on the “wizard of Oz”.  Combined with both the public in the US chart, and with Obama’s sense of freedom and independence, we may be in for a shock.  What kind?  It so happens that Spain’s ancient chart and 20th century birthcharts both have Suns in Scorpio SQUARE (in collision course) with this pattern, and with the United States and with Obama.  Their recent revelations of the exact kinds of torture on one of their citizens (among other things, permanently blinding him in one eye with ground in pepper spray), and their expressed interest in prosecuting high level decision-makers in the US government are combined with their on Inquisitorial history.  This potent combo may make them the delivery point of this Chi/Nep/Jup shock that heals.

Astrologer friend Diane Yankelovitz points out that these days also bring Sun (identity) conjunct Uranus (shocks), in harmonious relationship with the nodes and Chiron, and on the night of the 29th, the Moon in the sky opposes the Chi/Nep/Jupiter lineup. Diane thinks someone with a very mundane job will suddenly spill the beans about the craziness they see, and that the public will suddenly learn a big secret.   I agree with her.  See the rest of her comments (and my previous article)


How will YOU feel?  You’re probably already feeling it.   There is a strong pressure of grief over old issues building, with many people looking for something they can believe in.  This energy will peak at the very end of May, but events associated with the peak could be as late as mid-June.   All summer we will be under this kind of sadness and intense “wishfulness”.   It may be something totally personal to you, but it will affect all of us in our feelings toward the state of the world, the country, and the economy.  The bookend to this pattern isn’t until November.
The good news is that there IS a healing element in this pattern.  It may not be easy, but we’ll pull the bandaid off some putrefaction so we can actually heal it

NEW Mini-Tapestries
I’ve done a lot of work on the site.  Uploaded new tapestry images, grouped them logically, created separate pages for each image.   Here are a few of the newest images.   To see more, click on the web address and enjoy!

IONS Panel Podcast: Nature of Time

May 27, 2009

New Podcast:  IONS Panel Discussion on Time.   This was a phenomenal presentation by five panelists:  The podcast link is below.  Apologies for audio quality, as there were many speakers, but I think you’ll get the drift.  Feedback was fabulous.   (Podcast click-on is at the bottom of the screen.)

The Panelists:

On the importance of studying shift: Mark Iberg, lecturer on humor and humanity, from multiple perspectives. Mark encourages us into action and asks, “What does shift mean to you?” His website presents his perspectives on how to keep one’s health strong for any shifting that may take place.

Overview of paradigm shift, from a timeline perspective, both horizontal and vertical: Looking at times past, Roberta Shoemaker-Beal will give an overview of the predictions for paradigm shifts around the dimension of time, from various wisdom teachers who have alerted us to anticipate changes in this decade, especially. She will talk of the work of Edgar Cayce for a long horizontal view of a timeline. The vertical view of time is from the ancient Greeks who wrote of and defined different “kinds of time” such as chronos and chiaros. How do we shift to accommodate to the changing nature of time? Is life things speeding up? Is that a good thing?

The Nature of Time: Katya Walter will speak on the “nature of time, now and anytime,” as a core element in our reality. Her books have defined dimensions of time at the core of our reality, down to the Planck level, where time and space interact in the space~time continuum. Her book and web site, give extensive information on “the nature of time.”

Focus on time to prepare: Anne Beverdorf, local educator and astrologer will share current predictions defined by those who looks at vast timelines, with the ability to predict the nature of timely events, we can anticipate through astrological studies. The use of time awareness, by studying cycles of time, can be used to plan our lives. Anne will share predictions for upcoming events for May 2009 and other relevant time we need to consider for the future. Her website at leads us to more information.

Planning for the future: Jan Blevins will be traveling to Peru this summer to study about a suggested change from the Gregorian to the Mayan calendar, as suggested by Dr. Jose Arguelles. His studies demonstrate that the Mayan calendar is a more accurate time keeping system than the Western European one used by the majority of our population. Read “Open Your Mind to a New Time” on the Internet at for an Arguelles interview on this dynamic and controversial topic.

Consider: What shifts in our foundational paradigms, for time and space, are we ready to shift? Is the ancient pairing of Mother Nature and Father Time offering us an opportunity?

05/05/09 [Podcast] Chiron: The Lecture

May 5, 2009

Here is the podcast for the lecture on Chiron, for the Astrological Society of Austin on April 27.   And here too are the images of centaurs that should accompany the lecture.

I referred several times to my wonderful brother-in-law who wrote his dissertation on Chiron–but I failed to give you his name:  Krin Gabbard.   He’s written several books that movie and jazz lovers will enjoy.  Krin is an incredible writer–entertaining, unexpected, iconoclastic, intelligent.  His most recent book, “Hotter Than That” is a socio-cultural history of the trumpet and American Jazz.  Krin’s writing can make ANY subject fascinating, but don’t just take my work on it.  Check out the reviews here on   I’ve never seen so many over-the-top-raving reviews.    His previous book is Black Magic which is about how Hollywood has and does portray African Americans in the cinema.  The latest incarnation?–the amazingly wise confidante/protector/nurturer.

OK:  Here are the basic Centaur image types.  BTW, Nessos was the old type, and Pholos may have been the new type–at least according to some greek art.  Pholos was NOT an Ixion centaur.     The podcast is below.

Chiron: Centaur with human front legs

Chiron: Centaur with two human legsOK. Here are the pictures:

Old centaur--lineage of Ixion.  Four horse legs.

Ixion's centaurs: four horse legs (Old centaurs)

PODCASTS: Jyotish Conversations (Vedic Astrology)

January 22, 2009

ganeshaThis is a series of podcasts on the rich subject of Indian astrology, known as Jyotisha, and sometimes called Vedic Astrology.   You can listen to more podcasts about Jyotisha at   This page is podcasts 1-5.

First, a brief description of each podcast, followed by the podcasts.  I hope you will enjoy these.—————–

PODCAST ONE:  Astrology Across Cultures

When reading an astrological chart, the chart is not the only thing to examine.  You also have to think about the cultural background of the person and the opportunities in their country and larger culture.   Astrology trends change over the course of history, too.   Listen to learn more!——————-

PODCAST TWO:  The Role of the Moon in Jyotish (Vedic Astrology)

The Moon is the most important single planet in the India-n system astrology.  This podcast will tell you why.————————–

PODCAST THREE:  Predictive Astrology:  What’s Involved?

What’s most important–transits, dasas, or something else?—————-

PODCAST FOUR:  Astrological Omens and Remedies

One of the brilliant parts of Vedic Astrology is the deep system of remedies for astrological “problems”.  The problems can be in the birth chart, or they can be a temporary situation, but with resonant energy systems we can tweak the energies.  This one is fun.————–

PODCAST FIVE: Divisional Charts

Jyotish includes a technique for extrapolating from the birthchart a different chart for many large subject areas of life.   We’ll talk about them.   CORRECTION:  At the beginning I mention the Drekkana chart.   It’s about SIBLINGS, not children.   Foot-in-mouth problem!

PODCAST SIX:  Looking at 2009

Here we look at the year 2009, applying techniques from jyotish.   The innauguration of Barack Obama, the chart of the United States, and more!
