Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Pitta imbalances can be hard to spot for some individuals. Although we aim to keep agni strong, subtle signs of fire organ disturbance can arise in the liver, stomach, pancreas and even less pitta known outlets such as the skin, blood, muscles and eyes. Ayurvedic practitioner Debby Andersen reviews 6 key areas to observer for pitta fire disturbances. As always, we encourage you to read further about Ayurveda and contact a practitioner if you notice any of these pitta imbalance signs. Namaste

Jung believed that the process of personality transformation was innate, or teleologically motivated...
Editor's Note: In Part 3 of Glenn Perry’s “The birth of Psychological Astrology” we have a fascinating look at the origins of what most of us practicing and using astrology believe today.

For those who began studying astrology only recently, it might seem that it was always this way. But it was not...

As it comes through, it heals and transforms me and everyone and everything around me...

Editor´s Note: Michael Pollan, notable and talented author of several books, including his new released "Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation", speaks out in this video on coffee and tea.
