Have you read a birth chart that made you think it would be exceedingly difficult for one to positively navigate self and life without given a massive amount of professional guidance; as well as finding the guidance necessary to be difficult to nearly impossible to access?
This begs the question, at least from me, would the latter also be alluded to, or be part of the individual’s birth chart as well?
Thank you, Ms. Elsa.
Thanks for the question. I’m not sure I can offer a satisfactory answer but I’m going to try,
I’ve seen many exceedingly difficult charts. It’s never occured to me that I’d be able to discern how hard it would be for someone to find assistance in life. But let’s just say that did occur to me…
It would be very easy to make a mistake in judging this. You may look at numerous hard aspects and have no doubt the person has had a struggle. But you may miss the Jupiter trines or the way Mars is aspected in their chart.
If you noticed these other things, you might realize that the person with the difficult chart might feel good. They might thrive via challenge. My husband is like this. Knock him down, he comes back twice as strong and three times as smart.
It could be that you’re viewing this with a victim mentality. A person faces so much impediment, their life is impossible. That’s more of a “belief” than a fact. When I see a tremendously difficult chart, I just think the person has been busy. Busy living or busy dying.
You state something is “exceedingly difficult” and “nearly impossible”. That means it can still be done. There is still hope! So you might conclude that a person with a chart like this has a special ability to do something very few could manage.
Nik Wallenda comes to mind. Who else can cross the Grand Canyon on a tightrope?
Try this. When you see a difficult chart, assume the person has a special talent.
I don’t like astrology that oppresses a person. “Oh, your life is going to be hard…it’s impossible.” The fact is, your life is your life. And when ask people if they would trade their life so they might live another person’s life, invariably, they say, “No!”
