Astrology as a roadmap to finding our true purpose
A birth chart is like a photo shot of the sky, taken the minute of your birth. It's a blue print that stores the energy of the moment in your being. That does not mean that you are forced into a certain track for your entire life, but it causes certain tendencies, inclinations, possibilities, etc. The 'photo-shopping', or editing, is up to you. Luckily we have the precious gift of a free will, which is our most powerful tool. In my view, we choose to come to a lifetime to find and solve our task, get a chance to correct what we may have mishandled in a past lifetime, and gather the experience we need to move on and evolve.
For me, interpreting a birth chart is like taking a look at the native's assets, and finding ways to transform possible weak spots, for a more harmonious flow through this lifetime.
Look at astrology as a language: instead of verbs, nouns, adjectives and so on, you have planets, houses, signs, and aspects.
The planetary energy is the WHAT in your birth chart that asks for attention - a situation, event, or issue for example, or a person.
The sky is divided into 12 houses. The houses are equivalent to the area in our live that is affected by a planet's energy. (WHERE)
The placement of a planet by sign expresses how the energy expresses itself in a certain area of our lives. (HOW)
Astrology is basically a science that uses statistics based on ancient recordings of planetary effects on nature and on the human organism. Cosmic energy makes this Universe, and is at work constantly, for those who believe in it and those who don't. Look at the Moon: it rules the tides as well as the waters within us humans, which makes 70-80% of our organism. You may have heard that a full Moon has the tendency to make people aggressive, or romantic, or creative, etc. So instead of struggling - why not make use of the forces that available to each of us, for free! Life is so much easier when we are aware of what's 'in the air'. Rather than forcing something unnaturally, we better choose to accept temporary conditions in a detached manner, and focus on what we are actually able to manage instead. Understanding cosmic energies helps us in understanding the 'other fellow' better, and gain peace of mind.
These recordings of planet's orbits and their influence on nature, including us humans have been passed on to future generations. Today, there are ten planets, and each of them is associated with certain energies, qualities and elements. Universal laws are timeless. Being aware of them, and in alignment, puts the power in our hands. Using this for the highest good will be rewarding and fulfilling. Applying it for selfish or destructive reasons will only backfire.
We have the choice. Look at fire: you can cook your food or burn your skin with it. Or water: it quenches your thirst or drowns a child. Or positive and negative: you need both to produce electricity. Female-male: inward-outward. Yin needs Yang to flow. Nothing stands ever still. Nothing is really good, bad, superior or inferior itself, it's just how we perceive things.
I was drawn to astrology in the early 90s, and have deepened my studies ever since. My teachers, inspirations and literature include Alan Oken, Isabel Hickey, Suzanne White, Robert Hand, Liz Greene, Dane Rudhyar, Marie Elena Gaspari, Stephanie Austin and Linea Van Horn. I see astrology as a key to improve relationships of any kind, have more patience with difficult people and circumstances, and most importantly, find meaning in this lifetime. I am a member of the San Francisco Astrologer Society and hold the level 1 NCGR-PAA certification (National Council on Geocosmic Research, Professional Astrologer Alliance).
Being an eighth-house Gemini with Scorpio rising; I see myself constantly transforming through modification of my mental faculties - always knowing my resources.
I am enthusiastic about sharing with others what I have learned, because I think it helps to create harmony, compassion and consciousness in this world, that I am part of. To me, Astrology is a perfect guide for children to find orientation and purpose, and I encourage parents to align the plans they have for their children with what they have really come for this lifetime. This can save time and disappointments at both ends.
Feel free to contact me for an individual birth chart interpretation or solar return report (1-year outlook from birthday to birthday).
I'm currently asking for an energy exchange of $120 for a 1hr to 1hr15min reading. Additional consultations are $90 per hour.
Inspired by a friend, and because I am driven to help people make use of this awesome cosmic tool, I will also work on a Dana basis (the act of Charity in Buddhism). I will not turn down serious seekers because of budget restraints, and I also happily trade services.
Your birth time is crucial. We need your exact minute of birth, the city and country. If you are not local, the reading can be done via Skype. Readings can be done in English, German, Spanish or French. You are welcome to bring a question!
