I have a story to tell you. Will you have ears to hear it? Will you have the heart open to receiving? Will you be willing to know yourself deeper, and see yourself more clearly through what I have to share?
As an Original Medicine Healer and truth teller, I use these prompts to begin working with women who come to me for support in restoring their voices and resonance in this world.
And It's also the call of the natal chart in astrology. It will unveil the blueprint to your Beingness and is the map your soul drew to fulfill its intention for this lifetime. It is wisdom and knowledge, universal and personal, that is there to be called on, brought in, studied and understood.
Re-searched and re-membered.
In fact, if you are looking for your purpose, and desiring to reach absolute fulfillment, consulting your natal chart is a beautiful way to re-affirm or re-birth yourself onto that path.
It will help you re-member who you truly are.
And why you are really here, at this time, in this life, with this body, and the desire to use your unique voice in a particular resonating way.
I study a lot of things, and have created many practices born out of the wisdom I have uncovered within my Self, and tapped from the realm of Spirit. And I am so deeply interested in Astrology.
I do not know on a conscious level how to interpret the language, though. Like living in tune with the Moon, bringing unique ideas and creative vision to life, and trusting in Divine timing, the knowledge of astrology is what we are born with. These are things that our souls bring down from their Source. Some of us uncover the wisdom to understand and teach this knowledge, others do not. We all have the ability.
Once we begin to pursue the knowledge, either directly, or through a teacher, it starts to strike within. It reverberates off the bones and sparks in the blood. "This is familiar", something in you says. "I know this about my Self," you continue. "Yes, you do," says your Higher Self, the Divine manifest within you. And She nudges you to keep going, to look closer, to allow the drumbeat of knowledge to call you to further step towards it.
That's when you know you're coming into something Good. Something real. Something pure and true. Something that is all for you.
You don't have to be totally in to the "woo-woo", a self-desccribed mystic in any way, or a full-time healer or teacher in a spiritual capacity to tap this and know its for you. Astrology, like love, is for everyone. It has its own brand, and its own message. Just like each relationship we cultivate with humans or things during our lifetime. In fact, astrology can point out where we are with relationship patterning and healing within this lifetime, something that, when having my birth chart read, I found extremely compelling and encouraging.
Most of all, instead of feeling completely overwhelmed by the symbols, signs and meanings, I felt totally affirmed in my Self and my path.
My chart was read to me by a Beloved Other, a woman who I have the great blessing of calling a friend, a mentor, and a soul sister. Her name is Carrie, and she came into my life by great happenstance, and stayed in my life because she is meant to be there.
Synchronicities. That's what we experience all the time on this earthly plane. Some may call them coincidence. Others know that the Divine, and our soul selves, express themselves in perfect timing, bringing exactly what is needed at that moment in earthly life.
If you're curious about the reasons things happen to you, happen to you in a certain way, or seem to be on repeat, having your birth chart looked at is a seriously deep way to answer your questions.
I'm going to digress on that for a moment and get back to my personal experience of having someone I love, respect and honor so much give me the gift of astrological wisdom for my life. This isn't the first time she has given me extremely impactful guidance on my path, or mirrored who I am back to me. Since I have known her, which is not a long time in earthly time, she has done this for me. Astrology is one of the disciplines she was called to in this life, and being both a witness to the full expression of her unique voice as she speaks Original Medicine, truth, to me, as well as an open-hearted receiver of Truth for my life path was a seriously potent and empowering combination.
What made it so?
The mirror of kinship. Utter trust and surrender. Desire to Know, without attachment. Ability to lean in to her as the wise woman who would act and speak honorably, with integrity, and in truth.
Some of this required preparation on my part before we sat down with the chart.
I had been feeling called to have my birth chart read for some time, now. It was one of those drumbeats that grew louder. "There is something there for you," it said. "When you are ready in your desire to Know, then it's time." And it turns out that I had to let a few things fall away and die before I could answer the call to Know fully. I had to be welcoming of whatever was there for me. I had to have the open heart, the ears to hear, the body poised for surrender. The full somatic experience had to be one of acceptance and willingness to learn and understand.
That's where the fear can come in for a lot of us. "What if my chart says I'm meant to be alone forever?" "What if I'm meant to live in challenge and destruction for this whole lifetime?" "What if I don't like what I hear?"
To the first, we say that you are not alone. Not now, not ever. Astrology answers more than just the desire to know about partnerships, and the focus of life is always more than just the people we have relationship with.
To the second, we say that the cycle of life requires life, death and inevitable rebirth. No one part of the cycle stays indefinitely. And if it feels that way, perhaps we are holding on to thoughts, patterns and feelings that keep us there when we are actually ready to move on.
And to the third, this thought can squash the most important, beautiful conversations we can ever wish to have. And it requires the tenacity to move past some serious ego-speak to get deeper and more real.
Moving past fear creates the biggest opportunities for the most impactful and beautiful growth. And astrology, like so many other ancient ways of universal knowledge dissemination, is here for you when you are ready to have the ears to hear, heart to open, and body ready to walk towards it. For me, this looked like imagining the worst case scenario, being ok with it, and then also having a laugh at myself because I Know that the worst case is not meant to be my reality. And once I was ready and willing to move past any worst cases that my mind had conjured, I could refocus my intention on surrendering to the Knowledge of the chart and the wisdom of, ultimately, my own soul.
One of the first things Carrie said to me once we began the study is that the natal chart is the soul's blueprint for this lifetime. It chose to come in at this exact moment, when the planets and stars were aligned in this particular way, creating a certain energetic resonance as support for those souls who were entering at that moment. Is that not affirming? That you know what you came here to do, and the help you would need, before you took on anything in the physical realm? And if you have forgotten, your birth chart is here to help you re-member.
Beyond the reading and the astrological empowerment, I had the extreme blessing of a teacher who knows me. She has seen me in many different situations and seasons of life. She knows what I have been co-creating for my life. She has borne witness to the great awakening that led me to now. So apart from interpreting the patterns and symbolism in the chart, she also spoke directly to my heart, and I was able to relate what she shared with correlating experiences that I have had over my lifetime, and currently. Some of this, she knew. Some of it was new to her. Either way, all of it was affirmed within the chart. The contractions and expansions. The love and the loss. The wayward traveling and the eventual forever home. It's all there on the astrological wheel of wisdom that is just for me. And yours is there for you too.
I'll also say this: who interprets your chart will have an impact on how you experience the transmission. This is not unique to astrology. This is the same with energy and bodywork practitioners. This applies to medical doctors, teachers in the traditional educational system as well as spiritual teachers.
Using your own intuition within your body to aid in discerning right relationship for whatever knowledge you are seeking is so important in order to honor the need to feel safe while on the receiving end.
Trust your Self to be shown these people when the time is right. There is a likelihood that some of them are already in your life. And a very great promise that they will come in when you are ready to hear them, and have space in your open heart for their teachings and messages.
For me, Carrie came in to my life as one type of relationship, and quickly evolved into something way beyond. She is here to remind me who I Am. We are here to do that for each other. And it shows me something else very important that I needed to re-member: I have the magnetism to call in the people I desire at precisely the right time. I have always had this, and I always will. They are here. Some are not yet physically in appearance, and yet they are coming. Others are here, and are working with me in the way I need them to, they are teaching me what I need to learn and experience. Some are now being realized and recognized as greater than I had previously realized. And that is so powerful.
That takes us back to synchronicities. The meeting of minds and hearts can be called synchronous. We can know, though, that we are calling to these people long before we know who they are and how they will appear in our lives. We do this with all things in our lives. And when we have the direction of our own wisdom to draw from, this is how we receive what we deeply desire and deserve. And, yes, the birth chart will be a beautiful tool of expression on how to do that.
Astrology is one of the many and ancient tools that we can use to help us sing the song of our souls. That is what true resonance is: your soul singing, calling you home to Her so that you can walk the path that was divinely designed for you. Thats where the ultimate sense of fulfillment and belonging, the two things that humans most long for and desire, can be found. Right on that path. The one that looks like overgrown jungle, or deserted desert, or a crumbling piece of the city. That's where the soul visionary says "yes, that's the way home." A'ho
So, when you are ready, you can consult that map of your life, the one that You made from your Highest Self. The one that leads you to who you are and will become. The one that promised you at your birth that you are here to do something meaningful and fulfilling. The one that shows you how and where you belong. The blessing of the natal chart. Amen.
