Astrological Self-Awareness - Saying Yes to your Life


“Astrology is the most misunderstood subject of all human knowledge. It is not about knowing your future…it is about knowing yourself.  It is about the journey of your soul through this world and what this is all about.  And it is about the process of self-awareness and what is true for you.”  Dr. Deepak Vidmar ¹

Interest & curiosity about astrology have grown in the past years.  It appears to have become a meme, astrological sites abounding on the internet, yet, as Steven Forrest has noted: “The majesty, emotional valence, and intellectual rigor of the astrological symbolism has often been reduced to cutesy Sun Sign formulas. “Scorpios are sexy, Virgos are picky, Aquarians wear purple leotards.”²

Your birth chart is infinitely more than your Sun sign.  An astrologer uses the time as well as the location, to identify the precise placement of planets within the sky at one’s birth.  There are twelve signs & twelve houses, so there are 144 possible combinations of these two.  Add in the ten planets, plus two lunar nodes, and that makes 1728 possible configurations.  In addition, as Jan Spiller notes. a birth chart isn’t duplicated for 25,000 years because all the planets are traveling at different speeds around the Sun…. each of us is entirely unique. ³

A birth chart is the union of three interlocking symbol systems, planets, signs & houses.  The ten planets are the drives that animate your life.  The twelve signs, the goals, values, interests & tastes that motivate and individuate the various planetary drives.  The twelve houses are the arenas where the actions of life take place.

At its best, a birth chart consultation considers all of these variables as well as the exact angles each planet or node makes to others in the sky, creating an entirely individual map of life potentials and possibilities. 

“Astrology works by reminding you who you are, by warning you about the comforting lies we all tell ourselves, and by illuminating the experiences that trigger your most explosive leaps in awareness…..After that, the rest is up to you.”²
