I’ve been involved with astrology since I was child. I’ve seen various things come and go. The popularity of various house systems has changed over the years. Black Moon Lilith is very popular now. The Galactic Center used to be. Another five or ten years, this will change again.
I became interested in astrology because I like to know things and I like to have an edge. Astrology has always been a utility to me. It’s brilliant for this purpose. If you want insight into a problem or into a person, astrology can provide in seconds. Literally, seconds. It’s the time it takes to blink and see a chart, provided you have the experience.
If you want to do good with the information, you can. It will save you a lot time and money too, since time is money. It’s just a wonderful gift. But I don’t see astrology being used as a utility; I’m trying to figure out why.
I haven’t figured it out! But I do see astrology being used as a distraction. There a lot of platitudes involved. It’s a good time to meditate and feed your soul.” This seems 1990’s to me. Oprah show heyday.
Sometimes astrology is utilized enhance a person’s profile. It’s part of a person’s veneer. This reminds me of various crazes I’ve seen over the years. Pasta became popular in the late 80’s. In the 90’s it was sushi. 2000’s you had to have kale on your profile!
I don’t care about this in a significant way. I just think it’s useless. But I do care about astrology being used in a ways that are nefarious. I see this out there as well and I see it more and more.
I’m taking about astrology being used to program people or manipulate and control them. Here, astrology has utility but not for the end user. I’m getting a little lost in this modern world.
I don’t fit in any of these categories. I wish I could say I feel good about it but I don’t. Nobody wants to be an outcast. Especially people with Libra in their chart! But I just can’t wriggle in behind of of these masks or God forbid, join the dark side. Believe me, I’ve weighed this as an option! But I can’t do it. I can’t get crossways with my own soul!
Instead, I am going to double down on what is real. Real to me and real about me. I like to help people. I also like having the ability to help people. I like being effective and also efficient. I like to be honest and I like to be candid.
These things are not in vogue in the moment. Really, you can barely find anything like this at all. Everything you see or read or listen to is designed to get you to download my app!
Now is the app going to help you with your problem? My guess is no.
I’m the astrologer you can call when you overfull or drowning in garbage, no matter how you got that way. I’m as close as you’ll ever come to the astrologer of, “desperate cases and lost causes”. It’s not unusual for me to hack and resolve your “desperate case” in a 30-minute session. I’m sticking with this, knowing it’s not fashionable.
I’ll take this one step further. A lot of people have come to understand there is far more profit in working to keep people sick or weak or addicted and dependent then there is in healing them. I hate this. I am not adopting these practices.
