Like most things that are powerful and important to me do, astrology came into my life super randomly.
I was working with a writing consulting client. She was trying to figure out what day to launch her new business, and she told me she was going to consult her birth chart to figure it out.
I immediately got judgey. “Seriously? just pick a date girl! Gawd!” Up until a few months ago astrology to me was just woo-woo hippy shit. Save for reading the little write-ups about what to expect in the week ahead in the free papers while waiting for a meal or take out, I had zero interest in it.
I grew up in a household with super close-minded views about anything outside the so-called “norm.” It felt safer to reject anything outside of that norm than to embrace it, out of fear of ostracization and rejection. Even though I myself was anything but normal. I didn’t fit in with the muggles (😂) but I felt compelled to at least try.
But not now. Now I’m all, Fuck the norm! Gimme ALL the woo-woo! I wanna know everything about all things!
Back to the story. Yes, I got judgey about my client consulting her birth chart. Good news is I know judgement is a trigger, a catalyst for me to dig into whatever it is I’m feeling judgemental about.
So that’s what I did. Eventually. 😂
It took a few passes through my brain before I finally took action. IE it kept popping into my head, to ask my client for her astrologer’s email. But I finally did it and whoosh! My life was altered in a beautiful and profound way!
Here’s the thing about astrology: it’s a support system. An offering of wisdom and guidance from the stars to help you meander your life in a more impactful way.
It’s a powerful validation of who you are and how to best put your gifts to use.
If you don’t know what your gifts and talents are, astrology helps you figure that out.
Astrology is a tool given to humans to help them live their lives with greater purpose.
It’s a messaging system that says, No – don’t do that shit. Come over here and focus on this cool shit!
Astrology is an intimate insight into your psyche. It wakes you up to what you need to work on, and the areas or things you need to be mindful of.
Real-life examples of what I learned through a birth chart reading:
As much as I love writing consulting I wasn’t sure if I was on the right path. The question that kept coming up for me was should I keep consulting full-time or should I consider working for another company part-time too, to compensate for the freelancer willies, IE not being sure when my next client will come along.
The quick answer via astrology was, “girl, you know you need to never ever again work for other people, right?” 😂
Astrology validated what I had suspected, that I’m not suited to having a boss, cuz I AM a boss. Time to celebrate the power in that statement and focus my energy on owning and loving that about myself!
Astrology also affirmed my need to be mindful of escapism tendencies.
My birth chart acknowledged the existence of childhood trauma I tried to push down and away for years through learned coping mechanisms, AKA addictions.
The validation of my struggle was incredibly healing. It gave me permission to be kinder to myself and to realize my power.
I survived! I am a survivor! That’s some empowering shit!
My reading also gave me brand new insights into the power of the performer in me.
I am an actress in my personal life. Some people have rolled their eyes at me over the years for it, but I like to put on a comedy show. Humour naturally falls out of me. Joy is laughter, laughter is joy. And I want to experience joy!
Through my astrological reading a vortex in my brain opened up that got me thinking maybe, just maybe, I could put the actor in me to use in my career. It gave me the go-ahead to consider sharing the parts of my personality I usually save for my hubby or super close friends.*
*WILD & CRAZY TIDBIT: 2 weeks after my reading I was signed to a talent agency; 1 day after being signed I was on a paid photoshoot; 1 week after that I was working on a movie set. 😳 None of it is a coincidence because there are no coincidences in life, only synchronicities.
There are a ton of other amazing things I learned through astrology. I might share more at a later date (who am I kidding I will probably edit this post soon). But for now, I want to put this out into the world as is, because it could help someone who needs some guidance or validation.
Through astrology, you can find the acknowledgment and guidance you’ve been seeking. 🌙🌌✨🌗
Even though I know timing is everything in life, it would have been nice to know all that I now know from an astrological standpoint at an earlier age. Lot’s of suffering would have been alleviated – Just sayin’. 😉
⚡️Good news for you: my astrologer just launched her website!⚡️
Brittany is talented, generous, and intuitive. So many more synonyms could be added to that list but for now, I will say if you have any sort of inkling to investigate yourself from an astrological standpoint, she’s the Plutonian for you.
(Yep, that’s a thing. I am also a Plutonian. Maybe you are, too? Find out through a birth chart reading.)
I also want to share that if the inkling to investigate is more like a judgment, alas “WTF is Andrea talking about? Astrology? Really??” dare to dig into that judgment.
Judgment holds us back from SO many opportunities to heal ourselves. It feels uncomfortable, and we associate the “bad” feelings with whatever it is that has stimulated said judgement, then avoid it like the plague.
The reality is, cool stuff happens in your life when you see judgement for what it is: an opportunity to learn about whatever you feel judgmental towards.
So consider getting a birth chart reading.
Give my girl Brittany’s brand new site some love. Love = clicking through to visit the site and interacting on it, so it gets a good google rating.
