What I love about Astrology is that it shows you your intentions and potentials… and it maps the energy of the moment – any moment, whether a birth, or right now, or a particular time on a day 200 years ago. And that energy can be compared to the unique energy you were born with – which in Astrology is represented by your birth chart. When you make that comparison, between the now energy and the birth energy, you get what astrologers call “transits.”
Incredibly, using that comparison – those transits – gives you scads of rich information about where you’re up for evolutionary change and transformation. If you know your birth chart and your current transits (comparing the current energy to the energy with which you were born) – you have a remarkable tool for navigating life and for bringing your potentials into reality. I love this stuff!
I like to say to my clients, “Live your transits – listen to them – because they are the intuition of your Soul.” Your Soul, or Fate, or your God Self, or Core Self – whatever you want call that guiding direction – can be seen and understood through your birth chart and the transits that are impacting it, meaning you, in any given moment. Listen deeply and respond intuitively – and fearlessly!
A woman we will call Adara experienced the orbiting planet Uranus making a challenging transit to her birth Moon in the 4th house. During this time (about a two year period) she lost her job and subsequently her home and was forced to move to a new state to live with relatives.
This certainly brought new challenges into her life and created much anxiety for her emotionally, to put it mildly.
However, the transiting planet Uranus was also connecting with her birth Jupiter/Sun combination in her first house and with her Midheaven (the portal into the house of career.) This meant that while her life was certainly being shaken up, Adara was also being supported and could experience great benefit and find tremendous meaning through the experience.
Shortly after she made the necessary move, which initially felt incredibly unfair and difficult, Adara unexpectedly met someone who propelled her toward an entirely new career where she soon felt both excited and fulfilled. She was finally doing her life’s work!
Without the unfortunate loss of her previous job and all that resulted from that, Adara wouldn’t have had the opportunity that ended up unlocking her heart and bringing her happiness.
The beauty of this story is that not only was someone propelled toward a more joyful existence, but that Adara, through astrology, was able to understand, sometime during the midst of these events, that some sort of upheaval and life changes were necessary to her evolution – to becoming who she was meant to become. She was then able to prepare to expect the unexpected.
After Adara began making discoveries about herself and what was impacting her via several astrology sessions, she no longer felt that something sinister was being done TO her – but instead understood that theses changes were her Self – her Soul – speaking directly to her to help her change what needed to be changed in order to move her toward the state of fulfillment. She decided to remain positive and to look at her challenges as opportunities for growth and possibility – and therefore she was rewarded with exactly that. And she was also able to understand the time frame during which all of this would happen, because transits, the impact of orbiting planets to your birth chart, are very easily timed.
What a great story, yes?
I’d love to hear your comments!
Welcome to the New Year!! 2012… hard to believe we’re here already! And welcome to Astrology with Michelle Gregg! I hope you’ll join me often this year in a journey toward discovery. Discovery of the energies that this year, as the weeks and months go by, will offer to each one of us, propelling us to growth, evolution and change.
Astrology is an eloquent and intricate map of the energies that are available in every moment of life. Each sign, planet, house and planetary alignment bring us such amazing information about the energetic tools that we can harness and use for our own development on every level: emotional, psychological, spiritual and physical.
If you haven’t ever considered astrology as a part of your health system – something to compliment and advance your work with your doctor, psychologist, chiropractor, herbalist, homeopath, naturopath, or any healer that you visit – I hope you’ll begin to now.
Just for you in the new year through the month of January I’m offering Individual consultations for only $95 – which is $55 off, and Relationship Consultations for $130, which is also $55 less than usual.
I’m also offering fantastic rates to those of you who want to do regular sessions. If your New Year’s Resolution is to really do some deep healing work on yourself, or if you can’t seem to unstick yourself from a particular habitual problem spot – you’ll be interested in a package of either 3, 6, or 12 pre-paid sessions, which give you fantastic savings over paying for one session at a time. I’d love to hear from you about how to get these pre-paid sessions started.. .
And thanks for taking this ride with me! Can’t wait to see where it leads…
Until next time, BE WELL!
Happy Labor Day all!
As we honor and celebrate the work, energy and contribution of all who labor in our country, you may also want to honor your own contributions and your own work… no matter what that means or how great or small you may feel that to be. And if you aren’t doing what you love, at least try to do so on this day. If you can’t do what you love today because you have obligations that pull you in a different direction, begin to think about how you can incorporate more of what you love and more of your dreams and intentions for your life into your daily habits.
If you feel there is realistically no time to focus on your talents, dreams and intentions – start very small. Start with 15 minutes a day (or 5 if that’s all you can carve out) and in that 15 minutes (when you wake up, before you go to sleep, 15 minutes of your lunch break, when you’re in the bathroom – whenever!), connect to who YOU deeply are, give that energy free-reign, focus on the thing that you want to accomplish, and do 1 thing – any small thing, it doesn’t matter (a visualization, a phone call, placing an ad, writing, taking a walk, reading relevant information, playing your guitar – whatever you need to do) – that supports and gets you closer to your dream – to your own personal myth/story (where you get to be the hero of your own life like young Parsifal on his quest for the Holy Grail).
After a while “you” will become a habit. Do you understand what that means? YOUR life – what you intend to do with your life – will become a habit. You won’t be able to imagine your day without giving yourself and your goals that space, energy and time. And after a couple of weeks or so, then you’ll up the ante… you’ll move to 20 or 30 minutes and your small steps toward your goals will become bigger and have more impact toward fulfillment. And as the habit becomes more ingrained, you will continue to adjust your focus to more and more time spent on your dream/intention and to greater and greater step toward its achievement.
So go ahead and while you honor the real endeavors and accomplishments of others, take this Labor Day to also focus on the real labors of your life and what you want those to be – your life as your own labor of love, intention, talents used, and dreams fulfilled.
If you need help with understanding what your personal mythology is – if you’re struggling to understand your own potentials and short comings – please be in touch. I’d love to help you connect to the hero inside you who’s waiting to step forward on your true hero’s journey…
