We are made of star stuff! Our bodies comprise the same elements as the Earth and our Universe. Our emotions flow to the tides of the Moon and our minds soar in inspiration towards the unseen possibilities of the future. Is it any wonder we stand and stare in awe at the night sky? We are seeing our own potential – vast, inspiring and infinite…
Human beings live in a field of evolving consciousness, the challenges we face collectively are an aspect of that evolution. Astrology is a profound support for us all during these times of great change. It is an energy map, opening up greater understanding and wisdom of the changing meaning of our lives personally and collectively.
Over 5000 years astrology has evolved from the study of the planets to determine a fatalistic approach to life, to an in-depth archetypal mapping system for our human psyche and an understanding of the rhythms of the universe with its infinite possibilities of expression. Quantum physicists and cosmologists now speak about the existence of the ‘multiverse’ where all possibilities exist simultaneously in what we might call ‘parallel worlds’. An astrological consultation is an exploration of how these infinite possibilities land in you as an individual being and express in your life. You may know yourself as a Leo or Capricorn, but actually you are a unique combination of all twelve zodiac signs, with different planetary energies representing different aspects of your individuality. Your astrological birth chart is a blueprint of your unique expression as a human being, soul gifts and life.
Astrology is not a predictive tool in terms of events, as portrayed in the popular press. It is a mirror of life processes and a valuable tool for self-understanding, life purpose and direction. It offers you a map of the universal rhythms of life, applied to the moment of your birth and ongoing life cycles. It supports the discovery of the deeper meaning and purpose behind your experience, opening the potential for profound growth of consciousness.
Any time you face a transition in your life, an astrological consultation can provide insight, support and deeper understanding. In particular there are distinct astrological cycles that mark periods of significant change:
Age 28-30 – First Saturn Return: A confrontation with the need for a realistic, more mature, approach to life
Age 38-42 – Uranus opposite Uranus: Awakening more conscious potentials of individuality; waking up, moving on
Age 48-50 – Chiron Return: A crisis of meaning – what’s it all about? Breaking free from our own or societal limitations
Age 59-63 – Second Saturn Return: A sobering rite of passage, potential for rebirth and the birth of wisdom.
