I got started with astrology when I was eight years old. My grandfather, Henry, gave my sister a couple of astrology books. I was there and I said, “They’re mine too, right?” My sister was ten and the idea she might know a secret thing about which I had no clue was not going to happen.
In reality, I don’t think I’d have fared very well without her. So I was tagalong little sister and I nearly broke my brain trying to keep up.
I caught onto the depth and vastness of this subject right away. It was like standing at the edge of a moon-sized crater, intending to map it? Glorious.
I wasn’t at all sure I could do it. My sister was figuring it out and I was doing a lot of nodding. I would nod to indicate, “I knew that”, when I did not even remotely know anything! I feel it was particularly hard for me to learn astrology. When I totally committed to it, years later, I felt like I had to pound the information in, through an extra thick skull.
“Research” has become a big thing over these last years. I don’t research. I catalog information in my head. I spot patterns. I also travel around and I am talking about time travel, essentially. Mars Mercury in the 9th house. This allows me to crack complex systems where lots of the pieces are obscured. I’ll offer an example.
I recently came up with my thesis on what the hell is going on this world. I did not get my thesis from another individual(s) and change some words. It’s my own work and as crazy as my ideas may sound, I’m more careful than you may imagine. One of the main keys to this puzzle was provided by a man I dated in my early 20’s.
As you know from reading my stories, I can recall dialogue. Sometimes you meet people and they tell you things you don’t understand at the time. All these decades later, I can better understand the information this man shared with me. From there, things started to gel.
When I factored in some quasi-cryptic emails that stray people have sent me via this blog, over the years, the pieces came together and the veil began to lift.
If you really get into astrology, you will learn to think, forwards and backwards. What transits were going on last year and which are coming up? How do these things relate to where the person is at this moment?
Also, what is the best way to talk to this person so they get what they need from this call? Which angle(s) should I present and in what order? Is there a story unfolding here?
This ability is the kind of skills that’s being lost today and I think I know why. If you are constantly consuming, staring at a screen, it locks you in an “opposition”. The other person, in whatever form, is doing most the work as you stare at them. Then the next video comes on and then the next and then the next. Maybe you can see what I mean. It’s limiting.
If you can be a creative person on the internet; this is very different than being a consumer of the internet. Or a voyeur!
I urge people to challenge themselves to pitch in, in some way. Tell us of one of your ideas, or about how you learn, or where you are in astrology, or where you want to be?
This seems to be an important point. I say, “Live Your Sun, Satisfy Your Moon“. Your sun is your creative self. Are you a creative life force in this medium, or merely a consumer?
It’s about to get a lot worse as people are farming out their thinking and composing to ChatGDP and it’s clones. I guess that’s the point; to merge with the machine, but I’ll never do it. My mind is very important to me and I don’t want to see it atrophy.
The other thing is, it cuts out God or the ethereal… whatever you want to call it. Grand design? I dated that guy for a reason, so I could pick up these bits that allow me to understand something complicated, decades later. It wasn’t random!
My overall point is you have to live your life and if it mostly takes place on the internet, you may want to make an effort to live it in an authentically engaged, because this is also a skill and skills degrade if they’re not utilized.
Are you creative on the internet or more of a consumer? Will anyone cop to being a voyeur?
