After posting Lies We Tell Ourselves (And Others) and following up with Describing A Person’s Deep Nature, I had some people hire me to look at their charts with an idea like this in mind. Some things emerged.
One way to approach this is to look for what’s in your chart that cannot be denied. For example, my Capricorn cannot be denied. My 8th house cannot be denied.
It doesn’t matter how I feel about this, or what I think about it. It is not possible for me to live and thrive without acknowledging this energy and expressing it.
Let’s say that I don’t want to be a conservative authority figure? So what! I am never going to cut it as a flake.
What in your chart cannot be denied? Does looking at it this way help you? Horrify you? Are you able to pick out the strong themes in your chart in the first place?
