Episode 1 Zoning in on Personality Types: How Your Sun and Other Astrological Aspects Define You

Astrology and Cycles of Time

Here is the first episode of the The Holistic Monitor Podcast.

Welcome to this week’s episode of our astrology podcast! In this episode, we’re discussing the key facts and insights about Western astrology and how to understand someone’s sun sign, as well as other relevant astrological aspects, to identify dominant personality traits and roles in life.
To begin with, Western astrology categorizes the signs into the four elements of fire, earth, air, and water. Each element has its own set of unique qualities and traits that are important to keep in mind when analyzing someone’s personality. For example, fire signs are known to have a lot of energy, passion, and enthusiasm, while earth signs are typically practical, reliable, and grounded.
In addition to the elements, Western astrology also groups the signs into three crosses – cardinal, fixed, and mutable. By taking a deeper look at these crosses, one can gain more insight into personal traits and how different signs relate to one another.
It’s important to note, however, that overemphasizing one aspect of an individual’s astrological chart against other factors can lead to misinterpretations. While understanding someone’s sun sign is a good starting point, it’s crucial to consider other factors such as the moon sign, ascendant sign, and the planet Venus to get a more accurate picture of their true personality.
For example, let’s take a look at the Aquarius sign. Aquarius is a fixed air sign, meaning they want to be free and flowing, but are often contained. So while they may have a strong desire to be independent, they’re also known for being loyal and reliable. It’s essential to analyze all the different aspects of their chart to fully understand their personality.
Another important point to consider is the role of the fixed signs. Taurus, being the first fixed sign, shares some similarities with the Earth element. Similarly, the other three fixed signs – Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius – also take on different characteristics that overlay their respective elements.
Finally, we have Aries, which is the first fire sign, and Gemini, the first air sign. Aries often craves attention and wants to be seen as bright and energetic, while Gemini values their freedom and hates being boxed in.
In conclusion, understanding someone’s sun sign, in combination with other astrological aspects, can provide valuable insight into their personality traits and the roles they might play in their life. However, it’s essential not to overlook other factors within their chart that can provide additional perspective. We hope you have enjoyed this episode and gained some valuable insights into Western astrology!

More on the background of this episode:
This is the first episode that was published, astrology and cycles of time, and it delves into an intro on astrology both Western and Mayan. The format for this is audio and while my goal was to make it “stream of conscious” in its format I found that I was having issue staying on point without an outline.

Now, I can ramble for hours on the subject with someone else collaboratively but speaking into a phone, as I was, broken up over several days to make the full episode, I found it rather difficult to ramble on and on and then I found issue in relaying a consistent and specific message, let alone volume control!😅

So this first episode was a real learning episode for me as I entered into the audio version of the podcast and opened up the categories of Astrology, Philosophy, and Spirituality. As these are subjects that draw a lot of interest to me and is still areas I like to delve into discussion about and learn more of.

As a situational note, during this time I worked 6:30a until 3p at Tiffany’s and Co Manufacturing, setting diamonds and then when off of work taking care of Keanu until he would sleep at 8:30p. The point here is that there wasn’t a lot of time to work with regarding my other businesses or this new podcast venture.
This is just to give you and myself reference at a later time as to where I was and what I was doing during this time. 😁

Episode 2 Emote Kontrol Part 1 with Joseph Scogna

Emote Kontrol Part 1

with Joseph Scogna

This is the first of two episodes covering the release of the book Emote Kontrol with accompanying homeopathic remedies from Life Energy Research in 1986. The first episode covers the 8 homeopathic remedies and information on how to use them to move up the scale. The second episode covers the scale of emotion and the method for finding where you are on the scale.

This is an at-home SAF program! Find out where you are on the emotion scale and how you can move up! 🙂 Join us for this entertaining sales seminar which happened in 1986!

More details:

One of the tapes I listened to a lot is this next 2 episodes (2 and 3). For those who were around in those days, they will have a good bit of background on what all this means. I will elaborate on the next posting for episode #3 on the full details. But for now it helps to know that the SAF system and method of holistic evaluation and healing was coupled with homeopathy. Many of the programs and several of the books were devoted to the approach of using homeopathic remedies to alleviate the symptoms of the SAF chain. Most notable is episode #6 and #7 which are dictations from what was originally called Homeopathy 1980 and is now called Homeopathy Revisted (when it was written 1980 was fresh and new). One of the final tapes of my dad lecturing is on the story of SAF and he goes into why homeopathy was perfectly suited for the task of being the main remedy for SAF chains. I will likely be doing a show on this specific lecture and have compiled it into our free intro course on ModernHolisticAlchemy.com

Introducing The Holistic Monitor

More details:

In this initial post I wanted to go over the inception of the podcast and details around what the original purpose of the platform was.

In 2020 we all knew the pandemic struck the world and shifted many industries and businesses into the “online first” method of operation. Prior to this, there were many holdouts who were just as happy with the old website and an office culture designed around in-person meetings and collaboration. In order to move beyond 2020 many of these businesses were up against an “adapt or die” that forced their hand towards modernizing business with zoom meetings. Many businesses started with the technology as part of their model of operation but those who didn’t start there needed to adjust. In 2020 I was also effectively made acting president of the family business which was started by my father in 1978 and revitalized by my mom from 1999 until 2019. It wasn’t until I began listening to the seminars and sales meeting tapes for 100’s of hours that i started to build a framework for how I was going to run the business. It is a wellness business and entails revolutionary technology that acts as a “tricorder” for holistic evaluation of a subject. There is a questionnaire component as well which is the baseline evaluation. So for the training in the system which grants a certificate to use the system as prescribed by our training I opened and began building The Institute for Modern Holistic Alchemy to cater specifically to the online training (no prior online training had been developed). For the other portions of the business I reformulated the support system for users of the method and facilitated more outreach and attention to the business. Hence the creation of this podcast!

So, long story, longer..

The initial goal of the podcast was to open a platform for the system of holistic evaluation to a larger audience. So far so good! The first “season” is Episodes 1 through 7 which are audio with accompanied video. After episode 7 I began guest interviews and I will write more about that on these later blogs 🙂

I am writing this as episode 16 is being released!

I hope you enjoy these write-ups on the shows and background info!
