Although overwhelming- astrology plays a vital role in understanding my life’s experiences. We are often led to believe that we are “crazy” based on how we respond to things. Unfortunately, I was also this way until I was placed in those situations. Our date (or timeframe) of birth does in fact determine our life’s path. I have not conducted “scientific research” to confirm this. However, I have been able to connect past experiences to the planetary shifts.
I intend to soak up all that I can about astrology. I believe it is a healthy tool for healing. Please understand that I am nowhere near a master astrologer. However, I would like to share a few tips I’ve learned along the way. The top three things that have assisted me so far are the following:
- Astrological Birth (Natal) Chart
You can find these all over the internet. I happened to find a deal on Groupon. The Astrological Answers provides a detailed 25-page report for less than $10. This is a great start and you only need your
1)Date of Birth 2)Time of Birth 3)Place of Birth
Approximates are fine, but it will affect the accuracy of the report (in my case). This report allowed me to understand where I will experience challenges in life (i.e. childhood trauma). I was also able to see the areas of success throughout my life (work/service).
As with anything- there is a WEALTH of information found on YouTube. People share their expertise and knowledge within the field of astrology. This is a great tool to learn more about astrology’s impact on your life. Always “fact check” (anything in life) as you watch the videos because some sources may be unreliable.
- Conduct Independent Research (Scholarly Journals and Google 😩)
I have found independent research to expand my knowledge of astrology and healing. My Pluto is in my 4th house. I obtained this information from my birth (natal) chart mentioned above. Therefore, I simply googled “Pluto in 4th house”. Pluto represents power, rebirth, and transformation (to name a few). The 4th house represents one’s inner security (i.e. home, parents, and roots). A fun fact is Pluto is currently under retrograde (when a planet transits backwards and often leads to opposition).
The birth chart and research allowed me to connect the dots with my recent experiences. The Pluto retrograde is causing me to look deep inside (home, parents, and roots) of my childhood trauma to transform my life and take back my power.
My life experiences are in no shape or form random. The universe is forcing me to deal with my “inner demons” as they do not serve me. However, I can learn from the traumatic experiences and break the psychological programming I’ve heard and repeated for decades. This in itself is work, but that’s what I’m here for 😎 I always like to share what I learn because you never know how it can help one (or many).
Please feel free to share your personal experiences, knowledge, and tips😀
