The Gift of Astrology

I have been writing monthly Astrology forecasts now for 11 years since 2006 just before my father passed away. I began reading for people 6 years before that while still in high school. It’s one of those things for me, that you just fall in love with and study so much that you spend lunch time in the library with an insatiable thirst for more knowledge.

I always loved the stars. It’s why this morning I felt I had to share the beauty they have given me. Astrology I mean. Ask me about constellations and their location in the sky, and I will remind you that I’m not an Astronomer, I am an Astrologer. The two studies grew apart a long long time ago.

For me, Astrology has been a gift. A blessing. In fact, It’s why I felt so strongly called to bring my Astrology blog over to this blog. I used to feel the need to keep it seperate in case people got overwhelmed by the different aspects of my work as a Holistic Therapist and Feng Shui Consultant…but I woke up to the fact that each of these aspects of what I do, compliment each other.

They are the mind-body-spirit. There are different levels of existence, the earth on which we live, heaven…by which we are influenced, and in between…there is us. Humanity. When we are empowered on all levels, there is a divine alignment and power we can tap into. I truly believe it’s how I have transformed my own life in such an unlikely way from the way in which I grew up.

To know yourself, have certainty and confidence is a great gift. To understand that there is so much more to us than many people realise is a rare insight that gives birth to self compassion, peace and calm. When you understand your strengths, all else seems to fall away, because when we focus on what we love, nothing else matters. Not even judgements.

You get to the point where you wonder, who on earth still judges anyway? My point here is, Astrology has helped me see how my life has been designed and without certain aspects of it, others would not be possible. Everything works together so beautifully. It’s the uniqueness of us all that makes us so special.

Having that curiosity that Astrology gives you about others, also instills a great compassion, teaching us that there is much more beneath the surface than many people take for granted! Much more. This is what I love. I spend a few minutes with someone digging around their soul and they feel acknowledged, understood and here for a reason…as though everything has a purpose. And it does!

This is the beauty of Astrology that I love so much! It gives you that broad perspective that  allows for a certainty and direction. There are so many aspects of Astrology in both Chinese and Western Astrology, that help us not only understand ourselves and others, but our relationships and why they are the way they are…and how to find balance within them.
