Many who know me, know I am an avid astrological enthusiast.
It’s no wonder–I was drawn to astrology as a moth is to a flame.
Astrology offered me a tool to better understand myself and the complexities of my psyche and my life, as I delved deep, on a healing and recovery path. Later, after much awakening, I focused on astrology to grasp the movement of the collective, rather than depend solely on the lens of the daily chronicles.
I truly appreciate the larger context astrology operates from and its diverse perspectives (archetypal, evolutionary, mythological, psychological, mundane, astronomical), and have found the rhythm of the planets to be an accurate barometer of both personal and collective temperatures.
Driven by a sincere need to transport myself out of the unconscious world of trauma, addiction and dysfunction, the language of astrology offered me a means to cognitively understand the struggles and extremes of my life, and all-the-while feed my creative and analytical mind.
In my first astrology reading (1995), Caroline Casey described me to a T--a complex, intense, feisty, depressed, creative fiery person! I was thoroughly impressed. Casey seemed to know everything about me–my background, and even my parents–though I had never met her before. That August I laid under the stars at the beach and watched my first shooting stars during the Perseid meteor showers.
This new found genre helped me begin to comprehend my personality and soul, and to manage the painful lessons of my soul’s quantum intention.
Then, in my regular perusal of the metaphysical section in Border’s books I found the Pluto-I Book by Jeffrey Wolf Green (early ’90’s).
This took me deeper into understanding my soul’s past conditioning, and its intention to transform and metamorphosize out of conditioned patterns (immense trauma, fear, emotional projection, guilt and suffering) to responsible soul tending through self-love, compassion and service to humanity, God and Goddess.
The language of astrology continually encourages me forward through cycles of growth, around the wheel of time--beyond the limitations of my personality and any resistance to evolve--towards my heart and my soul desires.
